Cultural Exchange vol 1 and 2 both have a great teaching section on the move. Reed McClintock, Michael Rubenstein, and Kainoa Harbottle all use and teach the move on a few videos and books.

Guys on the Coinvention video use it, but don't go into as much detail as Cultural Exchange.

There's only one Coinvention set, so I'll assume you're talking about Cultural Exchange. Apollo's Wither Vanish is the main teaching of the move on the set. I think it's taught in an effect called Trio or something like that. Find a review of the set. They're both worth it to the closeup magician.

Does shoot ogawa teach this grip in "Shoot in Hollywood"? I've heard that Mr. Ogawa has some really great routines in that video and i wondered if i could learn some of those along with the j.w. grip.

He does. Shoot in Hollywood has some really nice material on it. I'm a big fan of Shoot and Apollo, so I loved the CX set. Hollywood has some very visual, difficult magic on it that, in many situations, isn't as handy to know, but fun to practice.

It's rather easy, once you know how to do the Grip. Its pretty much the same as going from classic palm.

No, David Stone doesn't teach the move. I've never seen him use it. As for going from one to the other, I know the Garrett Thomas uses it a lot.

Is Bob Fitch the inventor of the grip? or is Jimmy wilson? I just want to get that clear in case i ever need to mention such person when i credit individual coin moves that make up a routine.

Jimmy Wilson as far as I can tell. I learned it as the Fitch Grip, but more recently I've heard the JW Grip from very knowledgeable people.

Okay, so he uses it, but I don't like the way he used it there.
