Topic: Back Clip Vs G-pinch
Message: Posted by: **Roper** (May 24, 2006 01:24AM)
I recently bought Dan Watkins, “Coin Man Walking” dvd and quickly fell in love with his three coins across (coinvention crossing). It is visually startling!! I must say for those who have not bought this dvd, you should! He has wonderful routines that would make anyone smile!
Though I’m not a big fan of the back clip move. I have been trying to work through the coinvention crossing by using the G-pinch, for me it is easer to get in and out of faster. I guess its because I’ve been using the G-pinch for several years now. Has anyone else tried this instead of the back clip and had success with it?

Any thoughts on why one is better than the other.

G-pinch...

Try T-Pinch or TClip or TC.

G just happened to be the guy who showed the Tenkai Pennies to Bobo.

No disrespect to G-man. He was a good guy.

Roper, My comments on the backclip versus Tenkai Pinch is in that thread jimfl posted above. For the routines I teach on my DVD I would think that Tenkai Pinch could certainly be adapted to them without much trouble.

Thanks for your compliments on the DVD.

Jimfl, thanks for directing me to the previous post regarding this topic. After reading those posts I think I will practice the back clip more and stick with it.

Dan your welcome, I cant wait to see what you come out with in the future!!

I have to agree too. Learning two slightly similar sleights just gains ones diversity and agility. All it takes is time and devotion, and that's what coin magic is all about.

Glad I could the helpful one for once.
