How many of you perform, or have performed this routine regularly for lay-people? What are your thoughts on the routining of the effect, as well as the angles? What's the maximum number of people you perform this for? Just curious because I just made it part of my permanent repertoire, however, I get nervous performing it for more than 2 people due to fear of being seen from bad angles...

cheers

I will say that my fear is mostly likely unfounded, and just paranoia!

Nah I know the routine and like bits and pieces of it.. But as far as angles. I can see your fear on some of the moves. My biggest thing is always the classic for the finale... The JC ending... I have a hard time with the revelation. BUt the routine in its self is great quick and packs a punch...

I don't do the routine exactly but I use a lot of parts and nuances from it. I honestly have never had problems with bad angles though.

I just reviewed the routine, and I think if you're performing it properly with the specs in front there shouldn't be any problems at all. Everything looks perfect.

On a side note: The jumbo load, is something I do to the spectators hand though instead of my own. I find it takes some heat of the steal.

Good Luck!

It's a great routine, one of his routines that showed me how truly talented a performer David Stone is. He has some crazy chops and most of all I like how he brings in different elements, I mean his one coin routine is not just about One Coin...It's like a treatise in misdirection, closeup magic and overall interaction & showmanship. Just a perfect routine. I've still not seen a OCR anything like it and it has been quite inspiring to me for years and years. Smile

It's in his "real secrets" of magic. I've been wanting to learn this trick for awhile, however I never wanted to spend the money on the RSOM dvd just for this one trick. Also, living in arizona, its gets hot here, and it wouldn't be fit to wear a jacket here. However, I'm not even sure if it uses a jacket or you absolutely need one. He wears a jacket in the routine, so I"m guessing it does. If it doesn't, more reason for me to get it.

I'm currently working on his rountine "I want you", but it has angle problems too.

I've always envied his smoothness. His Michael Ammar's wiped clean is so smooth..I know how its done and practice it myself but it still fools me. I can't get it anywhere near as smooth as him. No wonder he is an FISM winner...he deserves it. I wonder how much he practices a day? His classic palm is great too, been at it over 2 years and still nowhere near as good as his.

Thanks for the great replies! (I'm in Asia right now and I've been unable to access the internet for the past few days, until now).

Paisa: The JC load never gave me any problems, interestingly enough. However, I'm always afraid that some spectator that is unaccounted for may spot the JW grip from a bad angle!

Josh: I will have to try this. So basically, immediately after the Jumbo appearance, you drop it in their hand, I take it?

MB: I agree on the part on misdirection! Mr. Stone still jukes me with his misdirection even when I see him on camera, which is quite a feat

Fishsticks: A jacket is not necessary. In fact I perform this short-sleeved. I'm not quite sure the wiped clean move is necessary though...sometimes I do it, sometimes I cut it out (it depends on how sticky my skin is at the moment, because that influences the execution of the sleight).

Evikshin,

I think Josh is saying to do the change directly into the spectator's outstretched hand. From stolen position, you "shuttle pass/change" the micro coin to the macro one, allowing it to "fall into place".

David is very good and very involved in being as professional as humanly possible in his coin work. I don't know, between him and Shoot Ogawa, who practices the more, but it's quite impressive.

I'm assuming you mean the routine from Real Secrets of Magic? Not the one where he produces a bottle. Looks like he produces a coin, does a JW grip, wiped clean, then re-produces it.

I'm surprised you don't need a jacket for this one. Is there any way to learn the effect other than buying Real Secrets Of magic Vol 2 to learn it? I just want to learn this one trick, I don't have a jacket or tex so I can't really do the other tricks.

If you wanted to, you could just watch the demo closely a couple 100 times. You should be able to figure out all of it (that's how I first learned the "Wiped Clean" move, before I got his DVD.

You could definitely do that, but of course it wouldn't be fair to David to actually perform the routine professionally unless you ponied up. The DVD's are worth watching for David's insights, whether you perform many of the routines or not.

BTW - that's an interesting warning at the beginning of the DVD, saying that it will install a virus on your computer if you try to rip the DVD (illustrated by a big scary Biohazard symbol). Wonder if it's true? Even if not, it's clever.

I do it all almost every show no matter the type. It is one of my all time favorites. If the angles are bad for some of the moves I just substitute a different vanish. Another intersting idea is to use a Jumbo with a S***l, and incorporate a silk at the end. Now you have a lot more possibilties.

I like this routine very much. David Stone is definitely one of my favorite magicians. However, I don't like how he uses the JW grip. But then again this is my pet peeve, I don't like how most people use it, because they use it in a way that it doesn't make sense and looks like an unnatural position.
