Buy This First So You Don't Have to Unlearn a Bad Faro! Report this review

I have been working at the Faro for years, but never got it to be perfect every time. I watched other magicians do it and asked for tips but I would get vague answers like it's a knack or a feel you have to discover. I copied finger positions and whenever I saw a pro do a faro on Penguin LIVE (it's the most commonly asked question to card experts, tips on the faro) they weren't very specific and the finger positions varied.
I had heard about the Unshuffled trick in a Doc Dixon book which he had a variant of. I looked into the original trick and decided even though the DVD had a healthy price and I already knew how the trick was done, I bought it to learn the faro. I am very satisfied with the results.
Paul goes over the faro shuffle in extreme detail, and tells you that you have to watch the explanation several times because you will miss something. Every finger position is important and how much pressure and where to apply it. It took a lot of practice and a few decks, but now with a new deck I can get a perfect faro almost every time, and now I'm working on speed and doing it without looking in case I am in a dark environment. Realize that I have only been working on this for a couple of weeks. A lot of the work was in removing bad habits I had learned and getting muscle memory of the finger positions.
I am confident that anyone who puts the time and effort into this shuffle that it requires, he or she will achieve it in a decent amount of time, I would say varied by previous experience with handling cards. Whatever your learning curve, stick with it and you will get it.
Also Paul offers personal instruction to purchasers of the DVD if you have trouble. He will even watch your submitted videos and tell you what to correct until you can achieve the move.

When I had saw the trick in the demo it looked like one of the best tricks I had ever saw. Simply very very impressive. But unfortunately the teaching lacked adequate closeups on the cards when he was teaching how to do the faro shuffle. If you need to learn the faro shuffle, there is other teachers out there that teaches it much better like Ferguson cuts and shuffles. This unshuffling the faro shuffle dvd would be great for someone who already knows how to do a perfect faro shuffle. I'm practicing a lot to one day be able to do this one of the greatest and I really mean greatest card tricks of all time. I recommend this dvd. Oh, and he overall taught the trick good but It's not his fault that everyone does not know how to teach a faro shuffle and does it they're all individual ways. 3.5 stars
