Man, sometimes you just get this stuff right and hit the nail right on the head the first time and sometimes not. In my continuing quest for good-better-best within my “less is more” thinking, in trying to do something else I happen back across something I don’t think I could’ve done any better than I did it the first time around. My Double Trouble is a real example of that, one of the very best I can give you as to my coin magic. I was just watching this, after receiving a PM here about it, and I just had to stop and smile watching it again…All I can say is, “WOW!” (At least, that’s what I think). Smile

Here I am trying to think of something else, that I’ve already thought-up. Smile In this, I bring two good pieces of SOH coin magic together for a fuller routine. Now, each effect plays well all by itself, but together as you see me present it here, well, it’s on-the-spot coin magic that your specs will not easily forget...It looks like trick photography, only it's not. Smile Plus, you feel really good doing this as it brings together so many deceptively magical elements. It does something quite “special” with a couple of classic things in magic, sorta different and refreshing than the beaten path. I love when I come to remember things like this, it’s like it’s new to me all over again (and hopefully to you as well). Smile

Perhaps some here know of this but just wanted to reminisce & remind, perhaps even introduce this to some fine others and any new comers here in this part of the Café. It really is a great set, just pour in some good practice and you got yourself something special that can open creative doors in you even wider. Here, see for yourself... Smile

Thanks guys, and appreciate all the new views of this. Gotten a lot of PMs from people that have it and some that didn't know about it, so it would be sorta new to them now. Smile Either-which-way you come by it, it's something worth playing with...a magical, fun piece(s) of coin magic to learn & present on the spot anywhere. Smile

Hiya Wrav, and thanks for the good words here...😊

I think Double Trouble is made mostly of intermediate moves, assuming that you got the basic sleights down pretty good to begin with. After that, it’s just practice like any worthwhile pursuit of going through the motions of the little routine(s). And the 2nd part of it allows for other ways for the complete vanish...very flexible.😉 The download takes you through every part of it and puts it altogether for you.

So, a casually put spellbound changes one coin magically to another where your hands are then completely shown to have but the one coin...What in the world???😁 And then you matter-of-factly slip into the next part of the little routine where another big coin is cleverly made to disappear right before their very eyes...1 - 2 - 3, Gone! 😁 It’s something they won’t ever forget! 😉

Just water it with some good practice and it will bear amazing fruit for you always. 🍎 😁👍🏽

It is great to pair effects like this. The first insures attentional focus and an expectation of magic.
The second delivers without frills or need for detailed script. It might fail if the first effect did not prepare the observers.
Additionally, the second "quicky" closes down any attempt to back-search the first.

The first is like a prelude to a virtuoso solo. It gives time for late comers to find their seat and shut off their iPhone.

Right in line with the Furst Principles!


Appreciate all the good words here. Smile

Thank you Mb. From your recommendation, I just received a Secret Servante which I’m getting familiar with. May have to get Double Trouble with my next bit of magic allowance Smile

You're going to love playing with Sean Goodman's "Secret Servante." It's a wonderful device, so clever & deceptive. Smile Glad I could help point the way on such good magic from a really good guy on this forum. Smile

And as to Double Trouble, well, it will be waiting for you and anyone up for a good bit of on-the-spot coin magic that will last a lifetime. Smile

Thanks Larry for the wonderful recognition here. And you're right, in just maybe a minute's time, there's a lot going on here. Smile If you can see it (or see something), well, then you're looking real closely as magicians often do. But if you honestly see nothing but magic, well, that's about what it truly looks like to specs, and that about why they are always left thoroughly amazed! Smile

So, go ahead guys, look again and tell me what you see. Smile

I have to disagree a bit here. When I first got this from you, I was way more of a beginner than an intermediate and I was able to grasp it with some practice. Granted, even as a "beginner", I still had some basic sleights down but SOH coin magic was very low on my list of "working effects". I did do coin magic as a table hopper for years but mostly it was gaffed quickies and very basic SOH. I was much better at cards, sponge balls, rubber bands and a variety of "prop magic".

Your SOH videos were what finally got me to take than next step and build upon that base. While I do not think of myself as a big "coin guy", I have learned much from your stuff which opened the door to me learning many other coin effects that require SOH that I probably never would have. What was once your "Less is More" thinking, became my foundation. (probably more than just me feel that way too). Smile

Appreciate the kind comments here and via PMs as to my Double Trouble guys, it is much appreciated. Smile

And PD, thanks for that...I always try to make things as simple to do as I can. Some things take a little more to make things shine as they do, but generally I try to absolutely stay along the lines of "Less is More" as you mentioned here. Smile

Happy for all the re-newed interest in this, as it's not one to be missed. Smile

*Oh, and Welcome to this part of the Café, Beast. Smile

Thank you so much bowers, appreciate the kind comments here about my work. That people have enjoyed some of it all around the world is something that continues to amaze me, still pretty much a decent-at-best coin guy. Smile Glad to have made a few noteworthy contributions, like Double Trouble and some fine others to the art. It all truly is a dream come true. Smile

Again, thank you. Smile

This is the type of casual coins "stuff" that I really like. --And, I believe it's the type of material that "ordinary people" like, too!

It's very evident to me that Marion is a believer in that acronym: K I S M I F !!!

I downloaded it--and, now, I gotta learn how to "read" downloaded material!!! --'cuz my stand up show, AND my close up "show" must stand the test: "...Can be presented, and will be entertaining, almost anywhere for almost anybody."
