Erm... implausible False Transferrs? Perhaps in your hands. I personally think Friction Palm is easier to do well than Han Ping Chein, for example.

Well I am sure my false transfers could be improved, but what I mean is that there is no good reason (in the spectator's mind) for the coins to be continually put in one hand, then the other, put down, picked up etc. And it is bound to lead, rightly, to suspicion.

I first wanted to learn coins across because I saw someone do it without (so far as I could see) any of this fidgety behaviour. I think he used a [.

I like the ungaffed one I posted because it minimises these dodgy-looking moves, without having to use a [. Although it does use a kind of Han Ping Chien, which is a pretty strange move, looked at objectively.

(And I accept, of course, that dodginess is partly a function of the performer's skill, as well as a quality of the moves themselves)

Actually rjenkins, using a gaff often eliminates what you call doginess. Roth's coins across is one of the most straightfoward versions available using a [.

I also vote for Matrix God's Way from John Born. I purchased his book with the performance cd. There are some awesome routines in there.

Earl Nelson has a shelled coins across in Variations that I thought I might play with again after all these years. Anyone here that knows it, what do you think of it?

Just been playing with Jennings Peripatetic coins and its very nice. 3 coins cleanly across, 4th coin to the spectator's hand, and you can end clean, all 4 non-gaffs in the specs hand, heat off you to ditch.

I use David Roth's routine with the [ daily in all kinds of performance situations and get a great spectator reaction with never a ditch problem.

Everyone is looking at the coins in the spectator's hand!
