The glass ending is so powerful, it doesn't really matter where it came from ... you just have to do it.

Although a magic trick construct, the glass ending can easily be turned into the finish for a straight up short con demo - with any derivative of the Harry Anderson take on con games "it's amazing a fool and his money got together in the first place" kind of moment ... essentially closing your demonstration showing that the con is so iron clad, the mark doesn't ever stand a chance, and is a guaranteed loser before he ever puts his first twenty dollar bill on the table.

Do they know the basic take and put of the thing?

On the other side, how's it going with a rim on the shells - is that diestacking action working for you?

I’m not sure what ‘thing’ you are referring to.
I also never tried the rim shells, but that’s a good question.

I see the cleverness in the rim, but not for me.

When you move a shell you need to ... and when you want to show where the pea is... the basic con of the game as folks watch the shells every so closely.

No matter how closely the spec watches, there is no way to see the moves. Even those who know the game can’t see them.

As far as the rims are concerned, there was a long thread about them some time ago. There were those who loved them, and others, like myself, who could see little value to them. The glass routine, if I remember correctly, was never brought up.
