I just wanted to say that after about a week of practice, I have this move down and it feels great. And it's also giving me so many ideas.

As a noob, I've been pretty much just following instructions and trying to copy, but this is the first thing that's inspired me to just try new things and see what happens.

Lots of fun, and I'm sure it's added some general dexterity to my hand.

Hi Mitch,

You got that right - the move is very creative, and I've developed a couple of nice exchanges (Dragon Coin Penetration and Finger Tip Productions) just by playing with it.

MB is also working on some routines that integrate his "crimp change".

Best $10 I ever spent.

By the way, you can reach a point where the coins almost stay suspended and your fingers move around them - not that weird - but all to do with the "shake" move that MB demonstrates in the video.

Regards,

Kyf

I should be getting my Chinese coin in the mail today. I've just been using a brass-colored Costa Rican coin...

...which is magnetic, by the way. Hmmmmmmm, where's my ring...? Smile

I've just joined the ranks of Crimp and Blow Change and, as I've told MB in private, it's VERY COOL!

Marion,
Getting her down, The thumb has healed so I'm back in business and it's just about the practice which I do a lot when I'm driving so I'd say it gets a minimum of 30 mins. and more like an hour almost daily!
As for the BC........ KILLER! Out of the blue my wife will look over at me and just wiggle her fingers and blow on em with that little smirk! I can do the BC for her over and over and she's like a kid on Christmas morn! Currently her 2 faves are BC and Steve's C/S Transpo although she also LOVES Tim's vers. of Coins to Glass with his kicker!
I'm suppose to hook up with our brother from Manila next week and I'm hoping the Vin man will be around so some Crimpage should be happening!

I've got to get on that BC. I haven't been practicing it. I'm too addicted to doing the crimp over and over.

Hey MB that "Crimp Cop/Silv/Brass" looked excellent! I haven't seen that one till now and it is a great idea and your transpositions were very smooth. Keep up the good work, I love them all.....
Where I go, so do my coins.....

Crimp...good. Blow...bad. I need a lot of work on the timing, and there's unwanted talking. But the crimp is great. I incorporated it into a 6 coin production that I think will be pretty cool once it's perfected.

Hey Marion

That looks like magic. Very cool. I have a bunch of Gaff coin sets that I never use like C/S/B but this makes more sense to me than the usual routine.

Excellent.
The real magic is family!
