I am a 38 year old hobbyist,living in Houston, TX. Got into magic about 15 years ago. I've been a magician in remission for a while now, but I got the fever again about 6 months ago. I love all magic, but slight of hand with coins is my main thing. Recently mastered Ammar's modified Retention vanish with both hands, a Spellbound routine with 5 changes, and I'm working on back-clips and the Muscle Pass right now.
I recently discovered this board, and I'm very grateful for it. It's an excellent way to consult other magicians when you hardly know any!
Best wishes to all,
Geoff Roberts AKA Capt. Coins Smile

Greetings Capt.
Where did you learn Ammar's modified retention? It doesn't sound familiar to me.

Hi Josh! Got the move from the book The Magic of Michael Ammar, page 33. It's basically a retention vanish, but it leaves the coin clipped between the 2nd and 3rd fingertips rather than at a fingertip rest. The move has a little more economy of motion than the standard Retention Vanish, making it very deceptive; the hand comes away looking quite a bit more like the position it was in at the moment of cover.
Also in the book is his Ultimate One-Finger Spellbound, which I use to start the above mentioned routine. Great stuff!
Again, pleased to meet you, and lemmee know if you require more info on the move. Smile

Tora, I love strong coffee!
Quick progress report, after approx. one week of practice with the Muscle Pass, I am sporadically getting 5 inches lift! Can only try it about 30 times a day; stings, doncha know!
