this sleight is taught in greg wilson's "on the spot" dvd and possibly in his older 'off the cuff" dvd. i have practiced this move for months and almost no progress has come yet. i am capable of doing many difficult sleights, but this one is really getting to me. anybody here on the forums have this sleight down? if you do not know which sleight i am talking about you can ask. i just don't want to expose the move in the topic.

I'd go to the source and get Dan Sylvester's "Sylvester Pitch 98"

i have the sylvester pitch dvd. It is very good. Greg teaches "pitch number 2" which isn't really the one to use in the context of the misers dream like routine he teaches (but it is the right one for the florida keys). Definatley pick up sylvester pitch 98. It is much better than i expected it to be. Dan really knows what he's talking about and he teaches it extremely well along with the reason why the move works and more than several things to do with it. I could attempt to explain the reason why it works (which helps you make it work once you know it) but it would take way to much time and you're much better off getting the dvd. Good luck.

One way I practiced the pitch is with my eyes closed. It helps you stay focused without relying on seight.

I started with one half of the move, the other hand just going through the motions. Then practiced the other half, again the other hand just went through the motions. Finally put them together with some balled up napkins(light weight & slow moving). It took me a while but I finally got it down.

It is so unique it is hard to describe without giving away the secret. The effect is catching coins in the air on a continuous basis.

A shuttle pass kinda thing, or at least it looks like it.

Is that the one?

its not really a shuttle pass. its more of a flying changeover.
