Hi
Anyone know of good ways of practicing the watch steal without using someone else? (meaning, not practicing on your family or w\e)

Get a dowel rod that's about 1 1/2 in. thick. Mount it at about waist height. Wrap it with dish towels and secure them in place at the thickness you want. This setup will simulate the give you'll find in someone's wrist, while still holding rigid. Makes a great way to practice, but until you're working on people, you won't know if you're using too much pressure, so that's still the best way.

I don't know if you said that on purpose, but just in case... that's what she said!

By the way, that was probably the only thats what she said in the world that was an entire paragraph.

you just gottah go and do it. i practiced it on my mom til she refused to let me anymore. then i practiced a little more on a rolled up towel. however the sleights are not very difficult, get out there and try it on friends and other family, you will learn it faster than you think and then will be ready to add it to your routine!
