I'm looking for your favorites that are easily reset and available for close inspection. AND, if possible, KILL 'em with a repeat performance.



So many to choose from, so little time.



Also, if I could get your thoughts on a Ring Flight, best cut and restore, and mis-made bill tricks and presentations.



I've been doing mostly S&S, D'Lite's, Folding Q, and Q-Shell.



Thanks one and all.

Stocktrader,

If you do S and S, you might want to take a look at my routine for a no-gimmicked S and S, that appeared in my Showtime column in the Linking Ring.

It gets away from any gimmicks -- i.e. that dreadful shell fake that feels exactly like what it is!

If you -- or anyone else -- are interested, e-mail me privately and I’ll send you the routine.

cheers,

Peter Marucci

As for cut and restored, I like Sandsational by George Sands. It’s a great routine that can play long, short or anywhere in between.



It’s (a book) still available out there if you look hard enough.

I’d like to say something.



I recently got Marucci’s S&S routine emailed to me. Being a goof magi I forgot I had this great handling and almost bought some S&S gimmicks because..... I got no idea!!! Smile



Thanks for the reminder Peter!!! Smile



S&S no gimmick, Smile eat your heart out!!!



Oh, and it saved me about $30 in gimmicks.



Stop me before I purchase again Smile

Okay, Tom, just send me the thirty bucks! Smile

And, stocktrader, for the best cut and restored routine, RayBanks is right: Sandsational.

You can do all of it or as much as you want.

Since I learned that routine, I have never gone back to the traditional method.

cheers,

Peter Marucci

There's also a nice little item called China Change. It's like Lethal Tender, but only uses coins. Quick, visual, and fast reset.

You must try Classic Coin Transposition. Sterling makes it. You can find it on my website or any fine magic site. You start clean and end clean. Very Nice.

If you have the time to learn, you should start playing with invisible thread. The levitating effects that you can create are so unbelievable that people will think you can walk on water.

However, If you don't practice and you ball it up, you will lose the effect of one of the greatest magic props ever made for close up magic,

I see that many people have reported Crazy Man's Handcuffs. I wholeheartedly agree and often use this trick to approach people and establish my "magician credentials"

I have heard of others who are able to bring the separated bands together again with a quick stabbing motion. I have some ideas, but I don't have a working model as yet. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where I can sort out some of my handling problems.
