I saw this over at Stevens Magic.

Any reviews for this?

The Harada hold is a very cool technique for effectively showing both hands empty. The disc shows 3 performers and their use / variations of the technique, which includes changes, productions, chinese coin-off-string, etc. A complete vanish is also included. Most magicians can probably figure out what's basically going on by watching the demo, though the exact handling is not that easy to discern.

The technique is a bit angly and I suspect it's best done for a few people right in front of you. Depending on your skin, it's not an easy move, but it certainly helps to have the "hand aid" liquid that comes with the kit. For coin (or card) work, the liquid is better than Corn Husker's, Golden Touch, Vagasil or other tacky substances I've tried. I wouldn't mind finding a supply here in the USA (if someone knows where to get it). Also, for me, larger coins are easier to work with. I've got a set of Morgans with good edges (I softened up the faces). These were easier to use than clad half dollars, but it's certainly possible to use halves.
