The first time I met Cellini, and asked him about the cups and balls, he said, "I do basically the Vernon routine..."

When Gazzo and I discussed the cups and balls the first time, he said, "My routine is based on the Vernon routine..."

Bob Read's Penultimate cups and balls is based on the Vernon routine.

Must be a reason.

Josh,
Look up Vernon on youtube and you'll understand why...

You must practice your magic until it becomes boring, then practice it until it becomes beautiful.

I've never read it put more clearly, Bill...this is the same for stand-up comedy

I feel the first part of the move is inherently weak. If you were to use the first move of the penetration as a vanish, it wouldn't fool anyone. If the viewer has strong conviction of a single ball being used, I know it appears different.
