Gret job I must say:)

The first production was great, when for the other I think you could make it smoother. But that`s just magician talk, for the layman I think it was great Smile

It's hard to tell with a video of that quality. You can't really tell what you're doing. It's so easy to hide your moves.

Thank you, but I am going to make a better version of the first production paired with a very smooth vanish, so look for that in the forums in the near future.

Maybe it is just me but I think that it is easy to tell where you are getting the coin from on the first production. I'm not so sure that a layman would be able to see it and there is also the possibility that I am totally wrong!! I wont coment on the vanish because others have said it best!!

All things considered.. best of luck to you!

Hiya,

Regarding the 1st move - here's someone using a similar idea.
I prefer his angles but your handling is more relaxed and natural up untill the point that I PMd you about.

Best, Mike

Sorry guys - forgot to post the link.
I've just searched almost 2000 vids and still no luck, when I find it I'll post it.

Sorry again,
Mike

Okay, this in't the one I was afer but it uses the same basic principle.

Except I turn my hand over, and it is much more angle friendly, among other differences. I think that you don't really know what I am doing with the coin. PM me about what you think, and I will tell you whether or not you are correct. Thanks for spending all of the time looking through the videos though.

Looks great, but the vid was kind of dark, so it was a little hard to see what was going on.

Check out Kirk Kokinos' "Bare Handed" video. The move he uses throughout his coin routines in the video is the one you used.

Draidum,
Not sure why you thought that (glad the Pm sorted it out), doesn't this guy have the coin in the exact same place as you? Agreed the effect is different, but the basic principle?

If I'm not mistaken, the basic principle is the same in both, it's just that Draidum uses an extra "something". I've never seriously considered using this technique due to the angle issues, but Draidum's video has inspired me to experiment with it.

Draidum, do you find that you can do this reliably with the specs standing or do they have to be sitting? Also, do you ever use it for vanishes?

Yeah, I think the extra 'something' makes this more worth while.
I've had luck with a similar 'something' on standing specs (actually spec, I only perform this on an individual because of the angles) but the taller the spec the harder to conceal as the position of 'it' must change making the retrieval and/or placement a lot harder. I have used it for a vanish but it only works (for me) if I ditch it fairly quickly. Due to the s***** nature of 'it' I use an M5 type thing for the ditch - my 'something' is shimmed so I end up completely clean.

Wow, there were few 'it's and 'something's in that but I think you'll get what I mean.
