Have you seen Nathan Krano's video of this? He can get 3 spins. I have heard stories of people cracking their floors with the coin slipping out of place.

It's a near-mythical coin flourish found in the Art of Astonishment books (Hint: Volume 1). Look it up.

As far as a video goes, I found the Kranzo clip in a single Google search. I mean, c'mon... how much effort did you put into looking?

From just dropping it on the floor or what? If the coin is shooting out like a bullet, they're probably squeezing way too hard. Gentle pulsing... more about timing and precision than strength.

I assume that is what they were doing lol. It sounds a little unrealistic yet realistic in the same way. I want to try this. Any specific coin recomendations?

Watching the video has peeked my interest. Now I want to try it. :lol: It does not look hard, but looks can be decieving.

And same as the Caff, found it in one search.

Agreed...

...but after hearing about it (here a few days ago), I couldn't help but try it ^_^ Using my Walkers, the best I could get was two complete revolutions. It's kinda cool when it works, but even then it's pretty much a waste of time...

I disagree. It's a flourish. It's jst a little thing to do while going through the presentation for a coin routine.
