Is soft surface is the key to execute the purse palm by Dean Dill, which was taught in Extreme Dean?

No matter how long I practice, I definitely cannot do it on hard surface (like table), nor on my mat, like the way that Dean Dill did. My mat is Close up Pad Trevor Duffy, which seems not soft enough.

However, I can easily do it on my bed ....

If surface really matters, any soft mat is recommended for the move?

Dean Dill did not develop the purse palm, also known as the Morritt grip. It can be found in Bobo.

Michael, I know he did not invent the move. But the way he did it in Extreme Dean is not like the "standard" purse palm , much more like a front finger clip.

Yes, the surface is definitely a big factor in acquiring the coin into the purse palm that Dean uses quite a bit. I own Dean's "Explosion" set of coins and it's performed on a nice pad that has lots of give. The pads I use were made by Dean. I've heard that David Martinez of Los Angeles makes awesome pads too.

Hi all. I posted this in another thread, but I thought I'd post it here as well.

I'm looking for a cushy, soft mat with "give" to use for implementing the purse palm for a matrix coin effect.

The mats I have are a little too dense and won't allow my fingers to press deeply enough to securely grip the coin.

Also, the mat's top material should be quiet...like pool table felt or similar. The top material on the mats I've acquired is a bit noisy.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Update: I ordered a printed suede mat with double padding from Propdog. I was advised this would be ideal for coin work.

Let us know your experience with it once you receive and are able to work with it, please.

I received the Propdog close-up pad today, which is a large, hard-backed model, with suede fabric (Propdog's description) in Thistle Red, double padding.

It's extremely well made, and certainly will make purse palming easier than on my other two mats. David recommended the suede fabric as one that would not show "trailing" during matrix coin effects, and he was on the mark with that suggestion. He also advised that many coin workers order the double padding option, and I would agree with his advice (with the caveat that I have not seen a Propdog mat with standard padding). The surface is a bit quieter than my other two mats as well. Of course, this is also affected by the softness of coins used.

The backing is textured faux leather. It is somewhat more slippery on a table than my other mats. Somewhat...not a big deal. I'm presently using it on my home desk, which has a glass top.

I think this mat would be really nice built into a dedicated close-up table.

Only ten days from order to delivery. England to California, USA.

Overall, I'm pleased. I will update once I've spent time with it.
