Topic: Rafael Benatar C&B routine
Message: Posted by: sethb (Apr 5, 2006 06:24PM)
Just wondered if anyone has seen the DVD "Elegant Cups & Balls" by Rafael Benatar, and what they thought about it. I was considering purchasing it, and would like to know.

The ad I saw is [url=http://themagicwarehouse.com/cgi-bin/findit.pl?x_item=DV5670] HERE[/url]. Thanks! SETH

He does the Garcia routine for the most part. The routine is outlined in The Very Best of the Cups and Balls book by Frank Garcia.
It is a very good routine.

I have the video that preceeded the DVD and it's very good. I'm not sure if this new DVD is just a straight copy of the video (renamed). Either way, his routine is well-structured and also taught well with a bit of philosophy about the C&B thrown in. If you already have the Ammar DVD and the Greater Magic Teach-In DVD, I think you'll find this a useful addition to your DVD library.

Thanks, guys, for the information.

I have Garcia's book and am familiar with his routine, so this sounds interesting. SETH

I haven't seen it but I saw Rafael perform at the world magic semenar to compete and he won. His performance was very funny and he is a great performer so I am sure that the DVD is great.

Does anyone know if the routine is different than the one on his video "Cups and Balls Execution, Theory and Practice"?
