To me coin routines are among the most beautiful effects out there. But for me it has become very difficult to perform some sleights due to no longer being able to use my left hand much for anything. However I still want to do some kind of routine that can be done primarily with one hand. I am considering Viking's Midas Cups or Marlin cups as I think I can manipulate the coins and cups. Which of these two cup routines do some of you like the best and how often do you use them in your routine?

Hi Gerald,
Have you looked at a Coin Funnel?

Thanks for reminding me of this effect, have one on order. However I still want to use the cups as a focal point, probably to close with. Just need a little feedback on which one.

Hi Gerald, Honored to have you here. I think you might be able to do Roth's coins across primarily with one hand. Depending on how much use you have of the left hand.
Ken you are an awesome helper. God bless you all.

Given your physical restriction, you might want to consider the Viking's Wizard Coin Cups. They're smaller than either the Midas or Marlin cups and could be easier for you to handle. I own them and love performing with them. Made of brass and give off a great sound when dropping the coins into them!!

Thank you country maven, Roth is of course a legend. I can use left hand a little however cannot totally close it, also the nerve damage left the hand so sensitive that it can be painful at times even to the touch.Wear a glove on left hand summer and winter and if hand gets cold I am done. So I don't wear a glove during routines but have to be very careful.But I will give Roth routine a try.

Thank you Payner44, yes I have considered those cups right now Viking is out of stock. So I broke down and ordered Midas Cups. I believe I can work with them. Every item I have ordered from Viking has been superb. They are about 250 miles from me so orders get here quickly and customer service is also the very best.

Received Vikings Midas Cups yesterday. Wow what a beautiful set with the special somethings being very high quality. Very good routine supplied also, the cups are things of beauty and will be very easy to handle, looking forward to using these. Also comes with a very nice velvet bag with compartments sewn in for cups and other things. Viking has done it again for me.
