If anyone has trouble with the " Bizzaro Flip", I suggest practicing with a third of a deck. It is a beautiful routine that requires a bit of time to get down right. I downloaded it today and was impressed. Well worth the purchase if you are into serious card magic. Not really for the aged professional, for as we grow older our hands and wrists falter and card magic, while a lifetime passion, takes its toll on our dexterity due to age. This routine is intermediate to advanced, notwithstanding, remains a tribute to magic at its best.

For the older crowd you can use cards that are more supple from use (or cards like Phoenix Backs that are pretty easy to spring out of the box).

It's knacky for some. I have taught people who got it immediately and some it took a few weeks. Just gotta find you comfortable butter zone. (That sounds dirty)

I'm not sure where Igor gets his information, but with age people get better at difficult sleights, not worse. Look at magicians like Rene LaVand, the greatest ONE HANDED sleight-of-hand artist who ever lived, and he must be in his late 70s or early 80s. Dai Vernon was 94 when he died and he could still perform flawlessly. Same with Ed Marlo and all those guys from Chicago. Not to mention the more current crop such as Lennart Green or Alan Ackerman, both are in their 60s and can perform sleights that put the rest of us to shame.
