Small hands is no handicap. You just have to work with the tools you've been given.
I disagree and agree with you here at the same time. Small hands is a handicap as most tricks do not take this into account. This is because to be best for the market they make it for the average magician. I am not average. In a sales pitch for a trick it doesn't tell you to be careful if you have small hands and this is what kind of screws me. I watch sleights in my ultragaff DVD that would be incredibly easy with a larger hand and it frustrates me. Some of them i 'can pull off while others risk being exposed way too much. You can't hide a halfdollar behind a quarter ya know? I do agree I have to work with what I got which is why I started this thread. I am trying to work with my small hands so i think coins, mentalism, gimmicks, etc is my route to take. My hands are not freakishly small or anything, but a deck of cards absorbs more than half my hand. Some things go from difficult to impossible. Although I obviously do not know all the sleights to fall back on. I simply try to learn from the sources I have and they have not provided me with much I can work with. Sooner or later I will be an expert small handed magician and I will provide help to those like me
Thanks again akira for more suggestions and input on my list of tricks. You have been a great help for me with starting points.
