Im trying to learn Roth's basic copper/silver routine from the stars of magic DVD. Now I have heard number of times that hand size is not really a big deal with coin moves but I really feel that my hands might be a tad bit small for the P to P transfer. I clear the P coin but upon release it doesn't clear and land in FP position then when I move the one that is balanced in they talk rather loudly. Any thoughts or comments?

Transfer the CP cain to FP (use the base of the 3rd and 4th fingers) first, then press the other one into CP . This approach is the one I use. We will be teaching a lot of coin switches at our one day Seminar on Jne 10th. PM me with any questions.

I always drop the coin on the base 3rd and 4th finger and roll it so the coin now held by the base of pinky and 4th finger. the other coin then balance from index finger to 3rd finger and push it to CP while retriving the other coin

Also, David Neighbors does a version where the CP coin in dropped onto table/spectators hands, then the FP coin is CP. Cheers,

Ian Kendall teaches this very well on his Basic Coin Magic CD. I learnt it from there, but it wasn't until I was reviewing a Roth tape a week or so ago that I saw that Roth did it a little differently. I tried the Roth approach, but really found that it had no advantage over the Ian's method.
At first the coins talk, but, as with everything, practising overcame this. The P to P transfer is one of those moves that is great to practise while watching tv - you can do it hundreds of times in an hour without concentrating. (The talking coins can be irritating for others though).
In summary: check out Ian Kendall's stuff - an excellent teacher.

Personally I drop it at the base of the pinky. Works perfect for me... Give it a try!
