Great DVD set.

The two-pea system is not something I've traditionally been interested in, but Sheets teaches how to move in and out of this set-up where you could say, start with this system, then move out with just one pea (or visa versa).

If you're in a situation where you want a lot of spectator guessing and want to smoke them (say, you're working a casino night), the two pea system is unbeatable. It really is quite ingenious. I think most of us do exhibition type routines, and maybe a two pea system isn't quite so necessary. But after watching this, I think I'm going to incorporate elements into my working routine just for the fun of it.

Thanks to Whit, Chef and Bob!

Just had my set of DVD's and have to say they are AWESOME.

Very clear instruction and methods of thinking with movements that can make you a shell expert. I love it!

Great to see Deacon Dan shells being used also. I love my set.

The PDF files are filled with history and great reading.

Whit, Chef and Bob...thank you for putting out a great product and the value in it far exceeds the value you are asking me to pay.

I also have the Gold Mag Shells and hope to see you guys incorporate them (or the reg street mag shells) into a routine. I have more inspiration in this DVD to build a routine, sure. But would love to see what you all come up with if possible.

Now...back to practice.

I got the second DVD and not the first and agree with Mr. Haydn that much info can still be had. But now I'm convinced I need to get Volume One as well.

It mentions that on Disc 2 the Escobar Move is demonstrated along with some variations by Chanin. I can not find this section...was it not included? I hope this will be explored on Vol 3 maybe, as I am interested in what Whit and crew can expand on if possible.

The above is not a complaint, just curious to what happened to that section.

I LOVE the pdf files and am getting much from them. Dr. Beaumonts paper has much in it and can see how it has influenced Bob Sheets routine.

Whit's discussion of psychological outs and showing 2 shows at the castle that deal with both of his outs is great. This proves that the mechanics are little but the presentation, psychology and audience management are key.

I wonder if it is possible to teach more of the street hustlers moves. I personally get much from seeing Gambling Sam and Giuseppe discusses the props and others pieces, but to show more of the mechanics. It doesn't seem like a lot from what I have viewed, but working the crowd is what it is about. Gambling Sam's papers from the Scoundrels forum is very interesting. "This is how you hold a mark" kept me in stitches. didn't hear it until it was mentioned in his paper. I got some caps and a board and am having fun working up routines.

Whit's Caveman Throg is very funny!

Back to training...

Do you absolutely need a magnetic shell to perform a 2 pea system ?

Thanks for your answer
