As part of the downloads from the SFS there is a pdf called "The Golden Shells - An Exhibition Routine for the shell game" by Whit and Chef.

Is this the same as Kohler's Golden Shells?

Is there a video of a performance of this? (the SFS routine)

Chef Anton with 'Golden Shells'

Bob Kohler's routine, I believe, is very much based on Gary Oulette's Supershells manuscript. However it is a very excellent routine & DVD to learn the shells and I highly recommend it. The only thing that puzzles me is the bit that you can not perform it on television without permission....since it is so similar to Oulette's.

I have a set of the Golden Shells and loved them when they first came out. I use to perform often in the evening under a streetlight and they really Glistened/shone on my table. However my hands would get sweaty and picking up and displaying the shells was sometimes tricky.....compared to lighter, grippier, plastic molded ones.

Thanks but that's not the routine on the PDF - some parts are similar but not the same patter or sequence. That's the routine he teacher on the Scoundrels Touch vid.

Its no big deal, just seems odd to have a pdf of a routine with the vid but the routine not be on it.
