I have to second the French Drop, though it was mch easier before I got married with the wedding ring because I used to immediately put it into finger for the revolution vanish...guess I gotta pull Bobo out again.

Tenkai pinch for coins, Backpalm for cards.

I am fond of a false cut that I came up with about 15 years ago that I've been calling the "Chuckle Cut" mainly because I have to smile to myself everytime I use it. It's a tabled multiple packet cut that doesn't use any breaks and for many spectators (including some magicians) it can be done slowly. I hardly use it anymore due to the fact that the movements no longer fit the style in which I handle the cards in most tricks, but sometimes I do it just for my own amusement.

I heard from a friend that anecdotal evidence is actually quite reliable.

I like the 1 hand top palm for cards if done right like any other slight it fools them outright. For coins the back clip when I saw sankey do it on one of his vids it looked great you can show your hands empty then bam....

The gravity half pass. Works wonders with Barrie Richardsons Card at any number/ A little misdirection works well too

I don't think it is particularly useful but something about it makes me smile inside.

I am a big fan of a retention vanish too!
For cards I like the deck twist from art of astonishment. great one to end a routine.

For coins I like the thumb palm Smile I use in the old vanish and appearance (not sure of the name) by (i think....) Slydini(?) Smile I also use it in the bobo switch. I have to agree with people who say the tenkai pinch Smile That's another one of my favorites! Probably cause it took so long to get down right! Smile

For cards the classic force Smile I smile on the inside every time I get that right! Smile I'm not that good at it but I still enjoy doing it Smile

For me it's the nowhere palm display and the sylvester pitch. SO much fun, and great for impromptu coin stuff!

I just love the Vernon wandspin vanish. Never fails reactions in my cups&balls. Just looks impossible and like real magic! I sometimes conclude the move with a drumstick spin (i think that's how it's called) to prove I have not dopped the ball. Even though there was never any specatator saying they thought the ball was in the other hand...

I love retention vanishes and french drops/pops. The downs palm is also a favourite along with the classic back palm. Ramsay and Capps subtleties are wicked too. Thanks for all the wisdom.

Hmm, hard to say just one. Goshman, ROV, a good French Drop is really deceptive especially when used with some feints.

Cards; Double Lift. I can do an entire show using nothing but a DL.

Coins; French Drop. Extremely deceptive and versatile.
