Hey Austini. Yes I do this routine. It has been very good to me over the yrs. I originally learned it from Kauffman's book Coin Magic. It's a very clean and visual coins across. There are some more visual routines for sure, but I consider this one a classic.

It is one of my daily practice routines and it is usually one of the first things I do when performing. I use David Roth's version with walking liberties.....

Wow, I was under the impression I was just about the only one who liked that routine! I always get great results with the spectators and I like the fact that you don't need any gaffs. I also think it is a excellent exercise to warm your hands up for classic palming.

There are posts by at least one other member on the café from years ago saying to all and sundry that they do the thing as written. Smile

Reading remains fundamental

Is this the version from Bobos where one coin at a time disappears, or the Roth version?

Austini, there are many that do Winged Silver. Nice routine and one of the early ones I learned out of Bobo's, then from one of Roth's dvd's later on. Nice routine that teaches a lot and specs really enjoy. Check Magic Video Depot, and do a search on "Winged Silver" and you'll see just how many people do the effect. It's an old favorite of many. Enjoy and welcome to the Café...Smile -MB

I was making reference to the Roth version from his 76 lecture.

I have always loved this routine, and it has been a "go-to" routine for me for some time... I first learned it from "Coinmagic" by Richard Kaufman.

This routine, more than any other, was the one that inspired me to develop a good CP. It is fun to practice AND perform!!

I do Winged Silver constantly. The handling that I do comes from Bobo's MCM but of course I changed the patter

Yes, have performed Roth's version lots--it's the first coins across I learned. It's direct, practical, and if you can get rid of the last coin cleanly (usually at a table) it'll fool most people. I learned it off David Roth's videos, and still remember being baffled by it (due to his perfect shuttle pass). I think a key to it is the timing. It has to move pretty smoothly--not necessarily super fast, but I don't think it's a routine where you can pause and let things sink in. The moment for that is the very end after you're clean.

Then again, that may just reflect a sort of magician's guilt or lack of confidence in the method, but in my experience people don't get the truly baffled look on their face until after the right hand is shown empty (and sometimes not at all, since they think they know how it's done). It doesn't have the "feeling of impossibility" that a routine with a shell tends to have, and so you've got to keep it moving.

Maybe the edge grip version would change that, but I don't do that one...

Anyways. A really good routine that I've used lots and which is great training for some essential techniques.
