There's some really great coin routines on that DVD.  I love all of Sankey's early material.

Yes. I saw a bootleg of Mr. Clean Coins Across before it got taken down. And I've wanted a copy of the DVD ever since. Now I've made an honest man out of myself[smile].

I'm starting to notice some thing in common about the way Jay manipulates coins that I like VERY much. I've never been ver convincing with my Roth Shuttle Pass, but the way Jay does it seems much more natural for me. And the Flying Shuttle Pass is really a help for me.

Another thing that confirms my suspicion about it being something every coin worker should master is Jay's use of Goshman/Tenkai combined with the pointing transfer. There is a whole sub-world of coin magic you can do with just those two moves.

Now I just need to master the left-handed Goshman and I'll move another step forward.

This is a very worthwhile DVD for anyone wanting to learn really magical and practical coin magic. Warning though - some of it isn't as easy as he makes it look. The Goshman move is one I've been working on for 3 years and it still is not perfect.

This is one of my favorite coin DVDs. Not only some of the material, but in the way Jay is like Robin Williams with coins. Some of those performances/explainations are hilarious!

I love the explaination for "No Jacket Required". The routine itself is awesome too.

Ken, you should post some videos of you doing some of the effects.  I've heard that the stuff on that dvd is really hard, so it's cool that you're tackling it.  (3 years of practice for one move?  I don't know how you coin guys do it...)

Good idea, SpareTopChange. I'll do that.

As for practicing - I wish I could understand it myself. I can't seem to bring the same single-minded insanity to card practice. I think it might have something to do with how easy it is to take a coin out of my pocket wherever I am and practice a move? Not sure :-P. I've never walked around Walmart with a deck in my hands practicing a top change like I have with a coin practicing getting into and out of the Tenkai pinch. But either way. Since I've been tackling some of the routines on this video, I'll put up some things and ask for feedback.

Cheers!
