Topic: Best resource on sleeving?
Message: Posted by: L Trunk (Apr 13, 2008 12:15PM)
I'm looking to improve my sleeving. I've looked around, and from what I saw Carl Cloutier was mentioned the most. I know he has a video dedicated to sleeving, so I have that in mind already.

What do you think the best resource on sleeving is?

Rocco has a DVD on sleeving. Patrick Page also comes to mind. Manuel Muerte does sleeving as well in his MisDirection DVD.

Brian Platt's "Catapult" DVD would be a good addition.

That's right! You might also want to check out Justin miller.

Carl Cloutier is good, too. You might be able to pick up some of his older DVDs for a bargain price. 'Catapult' is a great one for coins.

I'd start with Bobo. Lots of good info in there applicable to more than just coins. Ross Bertram has a nice section in one of his books.

I agree Bobo's is a great place to start.

Rocco is the most original anywhere. You should have seen his act at the Acadamy of Magical Arts award show... KILLED...

For general sleeving ( not just coins ) I like Carl Cloutier. To me you need a kind of flair to pull of the unending magnitude of Rocco's sleeving lol

For sleeving routines, I like the DVD "The Flicking Fingers" with Manuel Muerte.
Lots of fun as well!!!!

Justin Miller has a good take on sleeving in his lecture (probably in his lecture notes, don't know for sure) and on the Silver Dreams DVD. A bonus with the Silver Dreams routine is that it is hard enough to do that most folks won't bother with it so you will be rather unique with it.

Still pretty specific to coins, other then a few exceptions.

Justin has also done some work on sleeving pens too. He did quite a few tricks with the pen in his lecture. You can fine more in his notes.

My vote is also for Rocco, his set of DVDís gives you the mechanics to sleeve just about anything, and I mean anything. Anyone see the Ice cream bar coming? I know I didnít.

Rocco and Cloutier are both great resources.

Homer Liwag's Coin2 has a version that uses sleeving and would be a great routine to practice as you walk around with 3 silver dollars.

Much easier than walking around with 3 balls.

I have to add Baltresca's Sleeving dvd. I just got this and it has some moves that I feel change the idea of sleeving.
Message: Posted by: Bill Palmer (Sep 13, 2008 04:13AM)
Bob King has some really practical material, as well.
Message: Posted by: L Trunk (Sep 13, 2008 11:28PM)
I got a Cloutier video and have been working with that. It's been useful but I'd like to see other people's work before I recommend it.
Message: Posted by: DonHarlan (Oct 1, 2008 10:28AM)
Jim Pace also has some nice material.
Message: Posted by: Pete Biro (Oct 1, 2008 12:11PM)
I would set my own creative juices going and practice and try some things of your own based on the requirements for you way of working.
Message: Posted by: JamesTong (Oct 1, 2008 01:26PM)
I am with Pete on this. You gain and benefit a lot that way.
