I use cellini's routine and there are 2 parts where someone might consider a ball in your hand.

Before part 1, there is a time where I do put a ball away in the pouch.
I tuck it under the lip of the inside pocket so it is easily accessible
for later.
At the same time I proclaim, ".. and I really do put the ball away", as
I show my ditching hand now empty (because it is).

When I do a false xfer and pretend to put the ball away I snatch the ball from
the pocket and show it around and put it right back into the pouch as I again proclaim, .. and I really do put the ball away." Again they see a ball being put into the pouch and the hand empty. The ball is so easily accessible that it looks like it has been in your hand the whole time and has not quite been dropped into the pouch yet.

Squeezing nothing inside your hand as a feint can provoke a comment and they will be wrong if they speak up. If they are wrong the first time, probably no more comments will take place.

If someone says the ball went up your sleeve on the other hand, you can have a little more fun and get quite a laugh by asking and then stating...

Point to yourself... "Up mine?"
Point to them ... "Up yours!"

Thanks to every one for your input.

In particular to Werner G. Seitz; THANKS.

He contacted me privately about some thoughts that have helped me realize the habit I had formed. Smile

I have discovered what I was doing or rather the bad habit that I have formed, which I have stopped as soon as I recognized it. Simply when I picked up the wand with the palmed ball in it I held on to it for to long rather than reaching for the cup. I watched Gazzo and Joachim Solbergs (Armmas Routeen) and my old Cellini routine on DVD that I did and I realized this is what I was doing ever since I slowed my show down.
Very Happy
In Magic
