No problem. I just hope that someone uses it! Who knows maybe I will now that others think it is a good idea. Hahahaha.

Have a great day!

Hi John Long,

I'm sorry for the late response I've been a bit busy the past few days.
Regarding your question, To my mind it is actually easier to get the coins back in the lace again, I use a white shoe lace and I put white glue about an inch all around the two ends, so after a couple of minutes those two ends will be just like thread getting ready to go through the eye of the needle, and believe me; you do not really need misdirection; I also use washer, they are exactly the same size as a silver dollar but slightly thinner, and I need them thinner because I do both phases you know the out and the in; I do both in front clip and downs palm; but if you want to give it a try to the second phase I think front clip is the way to go for the second phase.

It would be my pleasure to post a video anywhere on the net,so that way you guys can check it out and comment on it, but I do not know how to do that,and I do have a camera that uses miniDV cassette,LOL,i'm not that good with technology.

but I hope that helps a bit John L.

Best Regards, Mano

How many of you are using Shoot Ogawa's beginning for this routine? I have practiced it and am having problems with the middle coin seperating from the others. I am using Sterling coins which are light so could this be the problem? Should I switch to Johnson coins which are thinker and heavier? Which coins do you use? In Troy's video he mentiones Sterling since they are thin and make the moves easier. However, I am not sure which coins would work best for Shoot's handling in phase 1.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

I don't use Shoot's opening because I find Troy's sequence better because the audience threads the coins by themselves. Anyway, Shoot's opener is a thing of beauty.

Thank you George!

Excellent point! Troy's opening is very strong since the spectators thread the coins. Overall, the routine as Troy presents it is excellent.

Kind regards,
