Which Curtis Kam DVD would you recommend more: Silverado or Fists of Fury?
I want to download one of them from Penguin but I don't have time to watch it too much (I'm home like once every 3 weeks) so the one I download will keep me busy for a few moneys
Which one should I get first?
Thanks.

Are you up for the challenge lol. His material is ver difficult. I would tell you to just pick up his lecture note special (4 books for $60). I don't own fists of fury yet but I have heard how hard it is. SIlverado was fairly easy for me (except sandwich move athon lol) I enjoyed silverado. A lot of really intersting stuff in there. Yea I think silverado would be a good choice for you.

silverado is more do-able. Fists of fury is freckin hard stuff. So i guess, in a sense, fists of fury would keep you "busy" longer cuzz its harder and will take more practice. But silverado I think would be better. The stuff is just a little easier and so its more fun to work on. Plus there is a super long kicka$$ card routine at the end.

Hard\easy isn't a factor for me
This is the situation I'm in: almost every day I secure places for a few hours (it can be an hour, it can also be eight hours...) and I've got nothing to do other than practicing coin magic (If I get caught reading\listening to music\etc. I will probably not be allowed to come home for at least a month) so even if the material is really difficult, I'll keep practicing it until I get it because I simply don't have anything else to do
So what do you say about Fists Of Fury now?

I say get Kam's books lol. I could say without hesitation that almost 75% of Curtis' stuff that he has put on DVD is published by him elsewhere. Through and Through was partialy published in Mr.Eclectic but with a different context (I beleive he removed some of the pocket penetrations). Almost the entire Cashablanca DVD is scattered throughout his books. Even the pocketbook goes over some of the finer points of his routines from his videos and other books. Kam is, how you would say, the coin Sankey. Not too much is really exclusive lol.

Getting the books will cost me too much money and I won't have time to read them anyway, I'm asking about the DVDs

Well then fists of fury could be good. But you need more [edited] that you probably don't have to do some of the stuff in there. But i do remember it being more fun to watch and work on. And now that i think about it you gimmicks for some of the silverado stuff too. Get fists of fury.

Now i have to know. What is the "situation" that you are in where you don't get to come home for weeks at a time and if you get caught READING you don't get to go home for a month? Freaking combat hardening training or something?

darn I can't decide which download to get
Fists of Fury has other magicians that I want to see, so I'm leaning more toward that DVD, but you're saying that it has a lot of gimmicked stuff in it, and I don't have or planning on buying any coin gimmicks so then Silverado will be better for me...
I think I'll go with FOF anyway though, 'cause it has a lot of sleights that I really want to learn, and also I didn't see any videos of stuff that's on Silverado so I'm afraid of being disappointed

My situation: I'm in the army, securing weird and boring places because I'm not experienced enough to do the interesting stuff yet

FREKIN CALLED IT!!!!!!!!! Man i should be a frekin detective. Chalk another one up for "THE DEDUCER". Yea get fists of fury. There are at least three or four routines you can do without gaffs. Kainoa's repeat coins from nostril is really great and fun and gaffless. And you can do a version of international dissolve with just three half dollars or sheckles or whatever you're using. When do you leave. I wanna make that video that i promised you then forgot about before you go :lol: i'll make it tommorow.
