Everyone complains that Jay Sankey's most recent line of tricks are "out to make a quick buck" and are bad quality when compared to his old ideas.

I recently saw his trick "key deposit" which he marketed to elmwood, l&l publishing and he used "holy moly" to replace it at penguin magic

Both are the same effect with a hole transfused to another place but one uses keys and the other uses washers

These recycling of tricks seem to be very annoying. After viewing a video of "one car garage" I thought he was a genius back then:

Also tricks such as "one car garage" seem very catchy but they don't exist anymore.

My question is what Jay Sankey tricks do you like the most?

I like his simple ones like Dough! which, although is a suspect penetration due to the Postit and shakey hold, still does well as a total impromptu grabbing a pen and Postit off a person's desk. To somebody that hasn't seen other penetration magic before, it works well. Also, I like Paperclipped - very simple but powerful. Since I hang around mostly co-workers and family, not knowing any magicians other than online, I don't have a tough audience. Smile

Sankey does seem to come out with a ton of stuff - his rapid-fire off-the-wall delivery reminds me of Robin Williams - not brillant funny like Robin but way too much energy and after awhile, it's like what my M-I-L says of listening to bagpipes playing - you can only take so much (sorry to you out there that play them!).

I'm not familiar with older stuff of his but will look into "One Car Garage" - I was thinking of getting his "Short & Sweet" because it doesn't seem well-known and I saw a good review on it once, but also find it difficult to keep track of what tricks are in what product - recycled or not? Who knows half the time!

I'm not a huge Sankey fan, but I saw him do a ring and rope routine with a chain and a key which was very magical. I liked it very much.

I've only recently gotten acquainted with Sankey stuff, and so far, I'm very impressed. The guy is "different"...and uses everyday items. A refreshing change from "proppy" looking stuff.

Diehard Opener, from The Very Best of Jay Sankey 1. Great to open in a walk-around/strolling routine.

I think he has some really good things out but people seem to forget about them now that the market is being flooded a little. Some of the effects I like are off his Very Best of vol 3
Mr Clean Coins Across
His Card to Pocket
Ship in a Bottle

And I really like his two bill switch routines off "No Card Tricks".

My favorite is Leaving Home. The sleights take a little practice, but the effect is well worth the work.

Some of the ones on Revolutionary Card Magic are nice, like Blaze of Glory ("Card from fireball") or Assault With A Deadly Weapon ("Card to salt shaker").
Forever starving,

I'd have to say that my favorite Sankey effect is "Back in time". It always plays well as an opening effect during walkaround. I like to play around with "Mr. Clean Coins Across". I think it's a fun routine to play with, and it gives your fingers a good workout.
