Herb Zarrow on the Zarrow Shuffle (DVD) Get the real work on this devastating shuffle from the man who invented it!
Price: $34.95
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!

The Zarrow Shuffle is the ultimate false riffle shuffle. Now Herb Zarrow explains the details and secret techniques that make the Zarrow Shuffle undetectable. No matter how many riffle shuffles you give the deck, you maintain complete control of all the cards. The Zarrow Shuffle is the most deceptive false shuffle ever created and one of the few sleights that was instantly adopted not only by top card workers but also by professional card sharpers.

Persi Diaconis in his introduction to Dai Vernon's Revelations wrote: "Zarrow's shuffle may very well be the single most important practical card move invented since Erdnase.

This is the first time that Herb Zarrow, the inventor of the shuffle, has revealed these handlings, variations and presentations using the shuffle. Most of the material on this tape has never been available before, including many fine points and applications that have been held back for more than 40 years. Learn from the only authorized video on the subject taught by Herb Zarrow, the man who invented it all.

Shuffle techniques taught:
The original Complete Deck Control with Riffle Shuffle, speed, cover, resistance, angles, cutting sequences, get-readies, jog usage, double hand movement, red/black Zarrow Shuffle sequences, three card cover sequences, one and two shuffle sequences, Cut Simulation, Locking The Top Card, Two-Shuffle Control, Pre-Cut Double-Shuffle, Two-Shuffles and Cut, Skimming Using The Z, Double Cover, Double-Double Shuffle, Red/Black Cull and much more.

Routines and applications taught:
Four Ace Shuffle Control, Surprise Stack, Quad Triumph, Cull Stack, Attraction, Red Black Cull and Zarrow Control, Four Packet Red Black, and Three Phase Poker Routine. In addition to shuffle applications the routines also contain unpublished techniques and ideas that can be applied to many effects.

This may be your only opportunity to really master this technique and add a valuable weapon to your arsenal of secret sleights.

I bought this DVD quite a while ago, but wanted another for a friend of mine who was having a birthday soon. He is struggling with this killer of a shuffle. I thought getting tutored by the master who created it would help. Thanks Herb !

The Zarrow shuffle is an excellent utility sleight that should be in every cardician's repetoire. It can be a bit difficult at first, but Herb Zarrow walks you through all the subtleties that it takes to make this a flawless move. There are other resources on the subject, but you can do no better than to learn it here from the creator.

Zarrow Shuffle (DVD) Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 13th, 2005
It was cool to see Mr. Zarrow do this shuffle and some of the variations. But if I was to rate this DVD on the teaching - I'd have to give it a thumbs down. After watching the DVD several times, I'm still not completely sure how to get the thumb break for the strip out. There's even one part where Mr Zarrow tries to give us a better view of what he's doing and actually turns away from the camera. Overall I was pretty disappointed with this purchase.

If you're already familiar with this shuffle and are just looking for some insight from Zarrow himself this DVD should serve you well....

Very Useful Shuffle Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 12th, 2005
This is an incedibly useful shuffle, and even if you know the Zarrow already, it has some very good tips and subtelties. I use the the shuffle and clean cut move all the time, it is so deceptive. The reason I gave it 4 is because the routines are very poor, and although Herb is a great teacher and his attention to detail is excellent, the routines are by no means stunners that you could impress anyone with. Maybe a single decent triumph effect would give people some better uses for the shuffle.

Ignore the comment by the guy before... obviously he doesn't know how to use this shuffle correctly... this is one of the best false shuffles ever... maybe the guy before did not like sleights??? I don't know about him... but I use this shuffle a lot... it's truly undetectable... 5 stars.

It does everything it promises plus more, it is a great shuffle, there are alot of false cuts and alot of full routines in there as well! Herb is a pretty good teacher, he will go through everything you need to know to start using this shuffle and those great routines!

This is the worst fake shuffle ever. Jeezes, I have better ones from books, top players with cards do not adopt this method for it looks funny and it's slow. Horrible fake shuffle. No wonder they call it fake, it's weak.

When my friend showed me the Zarrow Shuffle and said "I really didn't shuffle the deck." I said "NO WAY THAT'S A FALSE SHUFFLE!" But, as soon as I found out it was a false shuffle I got this video! Learn it from the master himself! This should be in every card workers arsenal! Do yourself a favor and BUY IT!

A Mixed Bag Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This is a useful DVD but not the best video on subject.

I think this DVD was mostly, to be blunt, 'Hey lets get Herb on film before he passes'. While the content is good, the production value is very low.

I don't regret the purchase, but this wouldn't be my primary resource for learning the Zarrow Shuffle. There are better out there.
