Hello to all of you! I would like to ask what do you think is the best of these 3 DVDs? I have read the Bobo.

Thank you.

Sick and Monster are advanced sleight of hand DVDs. You sound like more of a beginner, and there are far better ways to go than to tackle something that may be beyond the scope of your comfort zone. This topic comes up periodically,and there are many many threads that discuss the merits of each coin DVD that has been produced. Michael Ammar and David Roth have excellent teaching DVDs for less advanced magicians, perfect for someone who just read Bobo. The Encyclopedia of coin sleights teaches over 100 coin moves, which would help to improve your ability to do more sophisticated magic. Then, there are many, many DVDs that teach intermediate level coin magic, from every coin magician out there. Depends what you want. Gaffs, no gaffs, etc. Look to the New York Coin Magic Seminar DVD set, comprising over 225 coin routines on 17 discs. Look to The Curtis Kam or Reed mcClintock DVD series. Look at the Stevens Coin classics for a compilation. L&L has DVDs in their Worlds Greatest Magic series dealing with coins. Another compilation is the European Coin Magic Symposium series. Then just go to any dealer website, and see the long list of coin DVDs out there. Good luck!
AT LAST - a NEW fun coins across!! MIGRATE is filled with laughs, magic, cool moves, lasts over 3 minutes, uses props, comes in a Poker Chip version or special Deluxe version with coins, and is about...BEARS! AT DEALERS EVERYWHERE!

ALSO...available at dealers EVERYWHERE - RUBINSTEIN COIN MAGIC- The biggest book on coin magic since Bobo's Modern Coin Magic, and the most important since David Roth's Expert Coin Magic! Hardbound, 500 pages, 20 chapters of state of the art coin magic illustrated with 930 crisp photos! A contribution chapter from over 20 of the world's top coin magicians! This will be the book against which all future books on coin magic will be measured! Already called a Modern Classic!!
I HAVE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF COPIES AVAILABLE TO BE SIGNED, AND COME WITH A SPECIAL FREE GIFT! If interested, shoot me an email at rubinsteindvm@aol.com I also have some limited supplies of coins and props used in the book, let me know if you want a pricelist.

Yeah, Michael is spot on. If you don't know who he is, you're definitely not ready for Sick!

I know after a year and a half, I'm definitely not. I personally found Ammar's the best step up from Bobo's, followed by Roth's. I've recently got some of the New York Coin dvds and there are plenty of accessible routines, but only after the other stuff has been learnt well.

You mean Sick vs Monster vs Emperor !
cause apparently "ASystem" is an independant project that has nothing to do with the others
"Emperor" is the third sequel by "Frensh Drop" on advanced visual coin magic
trailer : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMF38ix2_gk

consider it a trilogy so start by the beginning : sick'

PS : as Michael said if you were a beginner at coin magic start somewhere else (a classic dvd or book)
Then you will benefit from these dvds

Thanks for all the helpful comments and suggestions! Now when I have heard more about the difficulty level of these DVDs, I might not get none of them. But I'm considering getting the Moneypulation vol.1 by Lawrens Godon. Is it good and how is the difficulty?

Thank you for your interest !

All the dvds mentioned above are for advanced magicians with a solid background.
But I know some friends who wanted them for the show Smile

@MaXiMoN : I think RJH was talking about this dvd :

But you're right, Ryu-ka's coin magic is great too !

You could check Tristan Mory's work for this kind of move.

I'm actually working on Moneypulation Vol.2, with more visual magic and move combos ^^
Stay tuned !

One question: how could you "read" J B Bobo when we had to spend years studying it ?

Now Michael Rubinstein gave you a very precious and spot on advice. For your own sake may I recommend that you make sure to read it carefully.

Another one here for Ryu-ka's work with coins. I'm really big into the style and elegance that I see present in a lot of the routines, coming from the Japanese party of coin workers.
