Looking at this DVD..... I always like really good coin vanishes and I maybe might want to add one of them to my routines. Does Kirk have something to contribute here? Can the vanishes be applied to other routines. Or do they have a bunch of requirements.

Thank you guys,

Well first, the whole DVD is based off of one move. Its not a BAD dvd, but its not the BEST either. I think it gets boring to watch the same moves done over and over again. His coins through table is pretty nice. Do I personally use the move? No hardly ever.

Maybe someone else will say something.

It's not the best move out there. I'd pass on this!!

I watched the video again. There a couple interesting items, most notably his card routine at the end. very nice.

IMHO the one move used throughout this entire video looks very fishy and would raise some suspision in the minds of an audience. Certainlt they wouldn't have a clue what you'd done, but I'm convinced that they would know you had done something - thus distroying the feeling of real magic taking place.

The move is fishy. It doesn't look good.

Review from Mike Close in Magic magazine: SUCKS! (although Mike was a lot more eloquent of course! LOL!)

Hi guys,

This is Kirk's first video and I know he put a lot of hard work into it. While not perfect, there is still some very strong coin work in here. His "angel coin" routine gets a gasp everytime I watch him do it, and I have watched him a lot, he helped me get my start. Maybe not perfect, but still some good material.
