Hey all. I have been doing coin magic with half dollar sized coins(walking liberties) for many years. Recently I've been playing with Morgans, but I find that my hands are a little too small to do the same things I do with halves. I think the Morgans are more visual and interesting to the spectators, but will require a lot of work(especially with angles) to "re-master". Would it be worth the extra work (I think I could eventually get it down) to be able to use the larger coins? Or should I stay in my comfort zone with my halves? I perform for small groups of people (2-10 or so at a time) and wonder if the size difference would even be noticed. By the way, this would also mean buying another shell set from Jamie... Cheers!

Griff...only you can determine if it is "worth it". How important is the change to you?

Hey Mike! Actually, I think I might give it a go. I like the heavier feel and sound of the dollar sized coins, but may have to change some effects/routines. I just wonder if anybody else has ever had this "problem". By the way Mike, since I have the opportunity I just want to thank you for all of your contributions to the art and also for your generosity. Cheers!

Use what's comfortable to you. My criteria for the perfect coin size is one that I can Classic Palm, Down's Palm, Finger Palm, J.W. Grip and Edge Grip.
