Do you need a gimmicked coin for the coin in bottle?


Heh! Man. I totally forgot to talk about the coin in bottle. The coin in the bottle IS THE SIGNED COIN. No switch, no gimmicked coin. 100% THEIR coin. :)

Don't we know it. ;)

Radar Deck was a little more expensive up here in Canada. ;) Glad to hear it's quite less down there. :)

Yes I think it will take four decks to make up the radar deck.

Bank Night: Not yet but I plan on performing it for a birthday party.
I didnt figure it out while watching it though........may be just me....
IF your friend was aware of the "method" that may have clued him in.
I wasnt thinking about it while watching it however...

wondering where to get cheapest radar?
do the DVD ask you to buy one or they teach how to make one, heard that someone said 4 normal decks needed to make one?
anyone here have made one?

Wherever bicycle decks are sold the cheapest. ;) The DVD tells you how to make one. :)

Osterlind's DVD series is great. Maven's DVD is great too. If you were to get either of these sets now, get Osterlind's.

It's really hard to select the must haves on Osterlind's series. So much material. But it would be a safe bet to say Disk 2 is the first choice. Disk 1 is second choice.

THe other DVDs offer spoon bending, coin through bottle, spoke bending.

Mavens can come later. There's enough material on the set to keep you practicing for awhile anyhow. :)

Can I ask anyone to rate the max maven vids compared to the osterlind in regards to originality of effects? It seems (I don't have either sets yet) that Richard Osterlind has the most original since he teaches the bcs on vid 2, which he must have invented or derived ingeniously from previous memorization systems. I really like max m because of his presentation but I know you can fall in love with a presentation by a master of some good but not so original effect. So, in your opinion, who is more creative in these sets?

Sincerely,
Peter

I would also try Derren Brown if you have a reg 1 player.....Im hoping that his popularity will increase here in the US soon.

No doubt. Browne's style is great.

And a note on the radar deck. I performed a seemingly impromptu radar deck inspired routine last night with a borrowed deck at a christmas party.

It was great. ;)

Yeah still getting use to the radar deck....Ive used it a few times, got 2 out of 3 right last time. I love Osterlind's PCT and have been getting just as good responses as the BCS.

Working non magic related work at a corporation party Saturday. Going to hopefully get to perform....
