Greetings...

Can anyone recommend a good multiplying ball video that contains a lot of good routines?

Thanks,

I recommend McBrides World Class Manipulation series. It also contains coin and thimble work along with basic to advanced billiard ball work.

Tim Wright has a good video for the basics of Multiplying Balls. He discusses several types of balls and presentations as well as additional apparatus.

I have to second the recommendation for the McBride manipulation vids. There is enough material in there to keep you going for a very long time...

I just saw a couple of Carl Cloutier's videos (third hand magic and another one) where he demonstrates a 4 ball multiplying/disappearing ball routine using 4 real balls.

Pretty nice.

I've seen Tim Wright do his routine on several occasions. It's the best I've ever seen for entertainment value. I'd get his tape -- I already have the manuscript.

I just picked up Tim Wright's video on the Multiplying Balls and viewed it...

Although he is a phenomenal performer and master manipulator, he sucks hard as an instructor in my opinion. If I'm not mistaken, I don't believe he taught a single thing in this video. When he did offer to teach something he performed it once and at full speed. To me, he seemed more interested in showing off his skill than teaching anyone anything. I've never seen an instructional this bad. Most tapes I own over emphasize or go over moves too many times for my taste in an effort to accomodate everyone. This flick was the opposite and instead, gave me a lot of detailed information on the different types of balls available as well as those no longer available that he had in his collection, some history on performers and advice about practicing if I wanted to do a finger roll with a ball like he does. Thankfully, I already adequately perform the multiplying balls and was only looking to polish up with some new moves and/or routines but instead learned little from this dude. I feel sorry for the beginners who have picked up this tape.

Jat leslie's billiard ball video is really cool.

As a ball beginner, Levent recently recommended I use Bill Tarr's 'Now You See It, Now You Don't!' It actually explains quite a few moves and then one full routine. Where should one go next? Maybe a video with more routines? Wouldn't Tim Wright be great for that even if one agreed that instruction was not the strong point on his Mult'y Balls video? Thanks for comments or other suggestions.
