What is your favourite ball vanish by pure sleight of hand?

The Toss vanish. Done correctly it is a thing of beauty.

I like the back of the hand production straight into a retention vanish from the McBride tapes.
Also I like the bottom of the hand vanish.
Like the bottom of fist but with hand open, it's just a natural vanish.

I also really like the toss vanish also. I also enjoy performing the roll vanish. This can work great as not only a vanish but as a color change move later in the act or sequence.

Both versions of the toss vanish can be found on Jeff McBride's 'World Class Manipulation' vids/dvd's. Best of luck with it!

I use a false transfer and hold out the ball in a classic palm. Simple, direct and it works in my routine. The best vanish is the one that fits into your routine and style. I prefer direct natural moves to contorted looking transfers or overly animated movements.

Great advice Carlo, anything that fits the routine and looks natural. As for one with real impact the Vernon/Mora wand spin vanish is awesome if it is done right. You can find it in Ammar's Complete Cups and Balls I think. Silent Mora used a fan for BB but the wand works well.

My favorite method is drop vanish (over the top). It's hard to explain without letting the world in on our method's.
Visually, the back of both hands face the audience (ball is clipped between thumb & index), the right hand drops the ball "over the top" of the left hand. Hat full of secrets and it's gone!
Lay and magic audience respond strongly to the vanish.
The toss vanish runs a close first.

Shimada shows a really nice vanish with the ball and a silk. He also shows a nice ball thru silk penetration effect. These are both on his lecture video.

I like some of the moves on Mark DeSousa's stage act tape, but don't use them. I use the bottom of the hand vanish and some that are not that showy. I really like some of the showy ones though. It's just not in the logic of my routine.
