NicholasD25, his chain routine had some moves not written about (I believe) back when he lectured. Maybe he had notes on that routine. He also had a great color changing knife routine.

I saw David lecture in Baltimore in the mid to late 70’s. He did the chain routine at that time.
I don’t believe he ever included it in lecture notes. Later, when I became more interested in endless chain routines, I tried to find details about his routine, with no luck.

I’m pretty sure there are only written instructions that come with the chain. It’s a fairly basic routine, I got it just for the chain.

I think the original topic was about other fast n loose presentations.
I really like one put out by Mark Strivings. It is don't in the hands, off the table. Uses a ball type chain.
Just another routine that's out there.

Actually, I think the original topic was about deciding which chain to use. In any case, you're right, the Mark Strivings routine does have some nice ideas. Paul Wilson's in the air routine is quite good. I believe there's still a YouTube video of it. If anyone has an interest in doing an in the air routine, I think the ball type chain is a better choice because it's not as bulky as, say, the SFS chain.

All of the catch and no catch moves are done off the table, ( both sides catch, either side catches or neither side catches ).
I first saw the Robert Brooks routine in a 1983 Apocalypse. Paul Vigil, Paul Wilson, Mark Strivings and others have routines. After setting the chain , it's draped over the spectator's thumbs and they decide which thumb will catch.

How’s the spectator put their finger in a loop if it’s in the air

The magician holds the loops up in his fingers, much like when you're playing cat's cradle or other string games. It's not my preference, as I like having the convincers, but sometimes you don't have the option of a table or barrelhead.

Sorry, horrible description on my part.
The routine is done off the table. The moves are made and the chain ends up draped over the performers thumbs. Performer demonstrates that the chain will catch only on one of his thumbs. After the move(s), the chain ends up draped off the performers thumbs. Then spectator decides which thumb the chain will catch on and the performer can make the spectator right or wrong. With 2 spectators, one is always correct and one always incorrect. Lastly, one chooses a thumb and the other chooses catch or not....and they both are correct.
Just an nice and different routine. And I think Mark Strivings still offers it.

Hello fellows !
I am a very satisfied user of the nickel french ring chain with the knot for almost 20 years now and wanted to buy another one in gold.
So I ordered one from my favorite dealer but it is the new design which is thicker than the older one.
Call me old school by I am more confortable with the former one. Mainly because I wear it around my neck during my act.
So I wanted to know if by any chance I could still purchase an old slimmer one with it's gold knot.
If one of you wants to sell me one PM me.
Cheers.
