Your in luck! I own both complete sets. And The final answer in my opinion is GO WITH STONE. Roth is great, but Stone is super natural, smooth and also VERY entertaining (something, it seems, roth has never worked on). You'll get more tricks from Stone, The same great teaching(minus the sleep medication effect) and you really don't miss much by not getting roth's dvd's. I bought them after I had already had both of stone's tapes because I thought maybe their was some more information on them that wasn't on stone's. I was pretty much wrong. I felt I got A LOT more out of stone's tapes.
Plus on the second dvd (which you should not view until after you've mastered the first) David (stone) teaches you "wiped clean", a move that I use constantly, and it is not taught on roth's tapes.
Anyway, there are quite a few more reasons but I think that will suffice. If you have any questions pm me and I'll be glad to help. Good luck with your coin magic.
David Roth not studying entertainment value? So what if he isn't very energetic? His entertainment value is great. He has obviously practiced moves forever and can add a great deal of anything to a routine because he doesn't have to think about the technical aspects of it.I would go with David Roth's because if he wasn't there, there would have never been a Stone
So? That doesn't make it a better dvd set. Do you even own either of the dvd's or are you just speaking off of what you've heard people say about David Roth and how great he is to try and get some sort of respect from the older guys on the forum.
Do you even do coin magic consistently. I thought you were a card guy? It sounds to me like you are one of those guys who wants to sound smart buy "trumping" other peoples posts with your own (sometimes false) knowledge.
If I am wrong and you do own both and are giving an honest opinion I am truely sorry. But I have seen a lot of Bull$hiter's on this forum and have gotten good at spotting them.
As far as being entertaining goes, show me a truely entertaining video of david roth. Just try. He's a magician's magician. He practices, developes and teaches but he's not an entertainer. That doesn't mean he's not a good magician. On the contrary, He's an amazing magician; when it comes to the magic itself but he just doesn't concentrate so much on being an all around entertainer and that's just that.
