Thought everyone would enjoy seeing Max T. Oz displaying his 3 Disk Monte routine
I enjoy all of his creative routines. He is a very entertaining magician!

Very nice. I had never seen a Disk Monte before. Didn't realise that a lot of the moves were simlar to the Three Card Monte.

Very nice! The disks are a wonderful change from the cards,

And they don't blow away if you are outside, like cards can. I personally like the disk much better than cards.

Hey Al, those disk look like the ones you make. Just like one of my sets from you. They are the best. Love them!

Max T. Oz very good.

Al's disks are perfect/fantastic (as is his service). :-)

Here is another version of Max with the 3 Disk Monte on YouTub. He has some added cool moves in this one.

Great job Max!

Well executed and a great option for doing monte. Especially since -- as benhart pointed out -- they won't blow away in windy conditions etc.

Thank you for the kind comments gents :-)

I got the 3" disks from Al at magicswindles.com and couldn't be more happy.

The disks have opened up a whole slew of possibilities that I'm working on now. Hopefully I'll get some outdoor vid footage in the warmer weather to post :-)

Do you know if any 3 disk monte instructional DVD's are in the works by anyone?

The only one I know that is out there now is Nickolas Johnson, from Australia. I don't know much about it, as I don't have it.

One that I do have was sold by magicalsleight.com. It is done pretty well and is called Disk The Real Street Monte”.
But from what I heard their not selling them anymore. I don't know why they don't, as the hard part is
already done. All they have to do is duplicate their master to make more. You never know that could change.

If you know how to do 3 Card Monte you can make the adjustments to use the disk. It really is not that much different than the cards.
Sure you might see some different moves from one to another, but that is the same with the Card Monte.

I had planned on making a 3 Disk Monte handling video to give it free like with the shell handling videos in making a purchase. But I hurt my hand on a machine in the shop and it took a long time to heal and put it off

Finding the time to make them is the biggest problem now and most the time my hands are covered with color pigments and resins from making shells. This is why I don't perform anymore, as working in the shop all the time and performing does not work. As everything you see on both of my sites, I make myself. I don't sub out anything.

I am not really into the video business. When I do make videos, it is a one man show making them.
If I had others to help make them, it would then cost to make them and don't really want to get into making of selling videos,

From watching Max he should make a 3 Disk Monte handling video!
I would be happy to share any of my moves to pass on to him.

I think Max handles the disk just as good as or better than the guys on the street.
Even better, he is a magician with good sleights of hand skills.
