I think this should be called a utility device. When I read "hold out" I think about a Jack Miller type device. The Trabucco is not like that.

With good misdirection, the Trabucco would work fine. But, with a "holdout" like the Miller type, there are no moves ( like going to your side to dicth ). The magic happens in front of their eyes.

Vic Trabucco's a monster with this. He walked up to a bunch of us at Fechter's in a short sleeved shirt and fooled us for a couple of hours. He never "went to his side to ditch" and the magic did happen right in front of our eyes.

If you use the Trabucco Holdout wisely, the audience will never see a ditch. If you use the Miller style holdout wisely, they'll never see a ditch either. But they will still see your sleeves.

To answer Haccis' questions:

1. Yes.
2. Not particularly. Depends on your application. All holdouts need loading if you're doing a production. With the Trabucco holdout you can produce the coins you vanished at the end of your last set.
3. No, and Yes.

A few weeks ago I saw Vic lecture...hes AMAZING with this thing. This lady's nose was 8 in. from it, and she knew the method, and she still was blown away. Great utility device.

I have this, but I wear a long coat, almost to my knees, as the riverboat gambler.
Any suggestions on how to use this with this type of coat?

My first post here!

I ordered one last week (and it is already in Germany!)
so should be getting it tomorrow or Tuesday at the latest.

ACE, The coat I plan on using is a thin leather mantle,
which also comes to about knee level. Have you resolved
this issue or is this really an issue at all?

I also like working in a tee with an unbuttoned
short sleeved over.... Hehe, I'm getting anxious! Smile

After many problems* (and support from Elmwood Magic!)
my hold-out has arrived. Was worth all costs and delays
(German customs...). I love it. Have a booth at a trade show
this week-end and am working hard to get a routine together
for handing out business cards (I do Photography & Design)
in another Magic way... ;D

Ok.... trenchcoat.... dunno.... maybe.... But!
Have a couple of big hawaiian shirts that may work.
With a black T and black pants and "Subterfuge"... meow!

Edit:*Problems with German customs that had
nothing to do with Elmwood Magic. EM is superior
in quickness and customer service, in my experience.

OK, I know this is a VERY old thread, but I found a Trabucco hold out "used" for $50.00 on Ebay 2 weeks ago. When I got it, the box was opened, but everything insisde the box was still sealed and brand new! I was already delighted with the price, but now ecstatic. This idea is worth its weight in gold! I haven't had this much fun with simple close up routines in years. I am re-thinking everything I do. I am dragging out the old gravity hold out and can't wait to see just how amazing the magic becomes. Thank you Victor for sharing such a great idea with the magic community. Through all of us who own your great idea, many people are laughing and smiling in wonder. What a great gift to give to your audience!
Regards,

Don't O.D. on that holdout or any other.
You know why don't act naive.

I remember Vic fooling everyone over and over with this at a FFFF convention in 1985!
