Ok - who remembers the Pelican Fly post from the past on the Café. I do - and as I recall, most everyone was stumped on the final one handed vanish (which appeared to be a coin thrown away). It was stated that this manuscript would detail the vanish.

Anyone hear of the manuscript? Is the vanish real, or not? I'm moderately tired of hearing 3 fly conversations, but this one vanish I have heard limited talk about - anyone else?

Can't help you Tedski with your question...but 10-4 on the 3fly talk!!!! Ugh!
To see a difficult thing lightly handled gives the impression of the impossible.

Tedski, I'm not familiar with exactly what you're speaking of but, as far as one handed vanishes, I know that Curtis Kam covers one or two on "Palm of Steel" Vol.1

Hope this helps a little. Good luck, Lee. Smile
In December of '06 I was diagnosed with a very rare cancer, Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans. One in a million people worldwide are diagnosed with this type of cancer annually. Sarcomas account for 1% of all cancers. Knowledge is power!

Is this the vanish where you hold the coin with your thumb, forefinger, middle, and ring finger? It appears to be thrown up and is caught in the other hand. If so, this is demoed on by Oz for the flipper coin demo.
Life is an illusion, death is reality.

The vanish Oz does on the flipper coin demo is Geoff Latta's "French Pop" vanish. It's the same vanish that Kenner published in his handling of 3 Fly in Totally Out Of Control.

Mind you it's not the vanish Kenner actually uses in his version of 3 Fly.

In my opinion the one handed vanish used by Gary Kurtz in Trio is much better... It's also a Geoff Latta creation.

Tedski.. NOski, I saw the demo and it looked like the hand went off camera and dumped it... didn't seem worth worrying about. Smile
