Well done
Thanks for giving it a kicker ending with the production at the end. Most 3 fly routines bore me to tears but this was great!

Very Nice. I thought it was decent as is despite not showing much of the emptiness of the hands, but the ending erased it all.

Thank you. That was part of my reason for spicing things up. I hope your comment (being the first) doesn't ruin the surprise for other viewers..

I actually saw the comment before the video, but had no idea. I was expecting a production of one (maybe three) jumbo coins, not what you did. Fantastic!

The final patter could do with a little tightening (or levity, if you start pulling coins out of your ears), but I particularly liked the final line about it being your setup. Smile

David, it's interesting to see where he takes the hold-and-hide strategy. Ramsay did a coins in hat effect. Kaps did a two coin transposition, ...

Onward ☺

Please, not two in the hand one in the pocket repeat... LOL.

Get the most magic from your skill. Jugglers show off skill. Making something magical happen is like the thoughtful gift - the work is behind the scenes.

The item you probably want to explore is in Andrew Galloway's book "The Ramsay Legend"

Others, including Reed McClintock have explored doing tricks where you have lots of coins to produce. Check out his Knucklebusters for some ideas Smile

Bad timing 22 seconds in when you do the move. Too much tension when it happens.
You always look at the camera, never at your hands or your audience (video should not be an excuse for non-realistic performance).
50 seconds in, your left hand looks awkward, since it's now (supposed to be) empty. It really caught my attention.
At 1.19 the French drop kind of handling is not natural. Why don't you jsut put the coin on the table by turning this hand down? (I'm not familiar with the gimmick; I believe a clip is behind that coin?)

I agree with all of your criticisms! I think you've got good eyes - it annoys me having to re-watch the performance for the exact same reasons.

I think the one at 0:50 is *supposed* to look suspicious - it accentuates the final reveal.
I didn't see any french drop at 1:19, though it does need to hide the final silver coin.
As far gimmicks go, from my view of the routine, there are none. But kenedho could confirm, if he feels like it.

No, there is no drop, but there's a similar display.

I should've added that I liked the routine otherwise. I just wanted to mentions points that I believe could be improved.
