Codydavismagic - now that you have played with this for a week, any updated thoughts? Can a mortal get cards to coins mastered?

I haven't been able to dedicate full time to this but it is definitely coming a long. Bigger coins seem to make it easier but I can kind of do it with Quarters now. Starting with just one card to coin and progressing up is a lot easier and I found it's a better way to practice it. I would say that it is very possible, but it is going to take a lot of work, and some time to get it down looking flawless.

Bought this and watched through the entire video. Good quality and presented very well. I am most interested in the snap deal and top shot, as I have learned both through Lennart Green videos. I think both of these slights are stunning when performed well. Takumi has chops and a very nice way about him. He teaches all of the moves well. Candidly, I think Mr. Green is more thorough, and detailed, with his teachings as he really takes his time to explain nuances of the moves, and how to adapt each to your abilities and style. That said, there are some nice new things on the new download and I think it is always good to see a variety of styles for the same slights.

The cards to coins on the download is stunning. It will take some practice, but if you have the snap deal down, it will just be a matter of learning how to to feed the coins. Someone mentioned that the card to coins was on Volume 6 of Green Magic, as a bonus routine (Xirtram). That is a snap deal coin routine, but NOT a production, as is shown on the new download.

Rewatching some of the Green videos has reminded me just how amazing he is.

I think a lot of this was covered on Lennart's Penguin Live lecture as well

I am a big fan of Lennarts work and have watched his Penguin Live Lecture, but in all honesty, it is not so easy to follow his explanations in his lecture. Especially when it comes to the snap deal and top shot, every detail is important.

Sometimes things become so easy for the Master that he forgets where his students might struggle.
That´s why this project makes total sense! Takumi teaches it perfectly!
Mr Green encouraged Takumi to bring this project to live to keep his legacy alive and Takumi did a great job.

I must admit that I am a fan of Takumis magic and that I have followed his magic on instagram for more than a year now. Maybe you are uncertain if this project is worth your money or if it is just another rushed out project to make some money (like it is very often the case these times), I can guarantee you that it is a great project!
Here is a compilation of performances of Takumi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WXdDE9-hZl0

The rubberband Routine is very likely "flush" by John Stessel.

And yes that stuff is inspiring Smile

You are not alone!! Working hard on it. Already had a decent snap deal but this motivated me to drag it back out. The coin production, however, is a whole new world!! Training those fingers to drop one at a time, having them out of the way for the cards to nest, etc.....UGH!Love the top-shot too. That is all about finding the perfect pressure points. Anyway, misery loves company, so they say, so let's push on!!

Anyone have on tips on making the snapping sound? Oddly enough I can get the sound when snap dealing multiple cards, but cannot get the sound at all when only dealing one card by itself. To put it another way, when dealing multiple cards the first card makes no snap sound but the second card and all the rest I can get them to. I honestly felt Takumi's explanations were really underexplained and I have been having to go back, to watch over, and over again.
There will always be someone better at some things than you are. There will always be someone worse at some things than you are. All you can really do in the end, is aim to be better than you were yesterday.

Okay wow! LOL, I was making that way too complicated and being wayyyy too heavy handed with cards. Definitely requires a much lighter touch.

I bought this month ago. The entire video is about 90 mins long. Snap deal and its applications are about 70 mins. Get this if you were a big fan of snap deal. Don't if you wasm't.

In the middle of challenging my hands to adjust to Dollar size coins for all my sleights and got myself some ikes to play with. Anyone else working on the card to coin with dollar size coins? I'm wondering if I should push through the challenge like I did with other coin sleights or whether the mix of snap deal grip might limit it. Thoughts?
