I have Subterfuge and I'm not entirely happy with the system. Is Trabucco the same idea, or do you think it would be something I should look into?

With Trabucco, you have nothing attached to your hands or sleeves at any time. Your hands are completely free and clean and the ditches/steals look invisible if you can do even the slighest misdirection. It does pretty much require a jacket however and some minor alteration is necessary although you can do it yourself.

I have still not had anyone catch the method during performance (including magicians). Much like the topit, less is more. I love my Trabucco Holdout. Thanks Paul.
Regards,
Jim

Thanks for the answers. This is sounding interesting. I don't like the jacket part, though--I never wear one. Any way around this? Maybe a baggy shirt over a t-shirt?

Probably not. Some have said you can do it with a vest, but jacket is the best way by far.

A vest would be possible but the jacket is definetly the way to go. It is easy to transfer between jackets.

I ordered mine 2 days ago from Paul at Elmwood, and I can not wait to get it. I also seen Mr Schoolcraft make use of the Trabucco hold out in his 3CM video. He was wearing a short sleeved shirt, any thoughts on this type of modification? I really am excited to get this. I recently started working with coins(cardman at heart) but feel after 5 years of strickly card work, it is time to move on to coin work.

I have spoke to Jamie in regards to his 3CM video. He told me that he did not use a Trubucco Holdout in his video.

I am interested in this gimmick. Can someone that has this holdout confirm that there are 2 ways to set this up with a loose fitting short sleeved shirt? On Elmwood magic's site it says in the Trabucco Holdout forum there are 2 ways to set this up with short sleeves. If this is true then I will buy this tomorrow. Thanks.

You just need a loose fitting shirt or jacket. Long or short sleeves not a matter.

Thanks guys for your replies. I ordered mine yesterday and was shipped out the same day. Elmwood Magic shipping is great. I am very excited to put this to use. A short sleeve, button up, untucked shirt will do the job from what I was told at Elmwood.

What a humerous thread!

I saw the TH demonstrated by the man himself at Blackpool 2 years back and loved it.

Not for me, but VERY smart anyway. If I hadnt just spent a lot on useless toys I probably would have picked one up!

In my opinion, the TH is best NOT used to make things vanish, but as a clean up device for switching in / out items or removing the evidence at the end of a routine.

First, I havent slightest idea what this gimmick might be. (Interesting is only thing what know about it).
So...

1. I work usually surrounded, can I use this "holdout" normally if I'm surrounded?

2. I work usually walk around. Does this mighty gimmick need some reset or secert loading?

3. Do I need some special clothing? Like M. Ammars topit, what's assembled with serious cutting and needle using. Is it easy removable from cloths and is it "switchable" to another clothes? ( Different clothes for different audience).

I was just with vic this past monday...he had on a short sleeved shirt..while DEVESTATING everyone around him! It SHOULD be done in a short sleeved shirt in my opinion.
GREAT UTILITY DEVICE!!

I just received my holdout and am totally satisfied with the product. I have to admit and agree with some who have also said it, even my daughter (who knows a little about magic) saw "the move" every time on the DVD. That is not to say the holdout or method is bad. Remember, Victor is performing at such a distance in front of the camera that does not give the holdout its due merits. It fries people when working in real-world close-up and/ or surrounded conditions. With a little management, even using it at a distance, you can still blow their minds. I work professionally here in Germany, and the Germans really REALLY burn your hands. I have my own routines that have always paid well, but the TH has greatly augmented them. I get a great kick out of this baby. Bottom line: it's fun to work with, a great tool, and it floors people when I roll up my sleeves, show my hands empty, and then a coin is at my fingertips a la Larry Jennings nice move from his Hook routine. Slow mo' and cool. It is simply a GREAT UTILITY DEVICE (thanks Justin)! That's it. Thanks, Vic!
I'm not confused... I just don't know yet.

Sorry, I have to add that my daughter knows what to look for! Most folks won't catch it!
