I've been thinking about purchasing a dvd from the World's Greatest Magic series. The dvd is Expaneded Shells. It features a shadow coins routine by Michael Ammar. My question is, are there any difficult sleights involved because I'm kind of weak in coin sleights and could anyone tell me exactly what sleights are involved?

I don't think you can really classify the move in this as a sleight. It's pretty easy to do.

IMO the World's Greatest Magic series is the best set of dvds you can buy

Those dont just have tricks but ROUTINES by some of the best magician's around. The routines are very entertaining (which is what I try for, personally)
And they sell for about 17 bucks a piece

Best buy in the shop!!!

Heck, get all of them!!!

ah... Shadow coins.

What a nice routine. I remember closing out a house party with Shadow Coins... Yeah. It's a closer, and something that you should practice A LOT before you perform it.

It might be easy for Exodus because he's an advanced coin guy. Quit showing off X!

I would say that Shadow Coins, or any matrix that looks good at all... is going to take practice.

Noblezada? Awesome! The shadow coins is a nice visible plot for a coins across, but most shell tricks are visual. Like anything, you just have to get the knack of the move down and it'll work. It's a cool little routine.

If you are getting that, Gte yourself a backup. Pick up shellraiser and covert coins by Troy Hooser and Charlie Justice. Great work on shells.

The WGM Expanded Shells is a very good DVD. David Roth shows the basics, and has a nice segment on how to care for an Expanded Shell. Garrett Thomas, from Reel Magic Magazine's Try this at Home, has a nice trick.

Highly recommended.

Not to be a buzz kill Magicman but that is against the rules to post links to other magic vendors who sell the same products as penguin.
