Well that's pretty much it...

What is your favourite coins across with a shell and why that one?

You could include your thoughts on best coins through table with shell as well...

Thank you

I still think David Roth's Shelled Coins Across is the best you'll find.

Coin One by Homer Liwag, it looks like real magic.

If you read an essay from David Regal's book "Approaching Magic" you would completely change your mind about that and you would agree with exodus. Only those who own the book will know what I'm talking about.

Which Essay? I got the book yesterday and read all of them 1st thing.

EDIT: If you're talking visual magic, I think you miss the point. The point isn't that visual is NEVER better, the point is that visual doesn't HAVE to be better. Either one of those routines is magical and will get an incredible reaction if performed right.

I don't think the visual aspect is the problem. The problem is the magic factor. No one cares that coins can jump from your RIGHT hand to YOUR left hand. The magic is when they not only see it happen, but FEEL it happen. Anything that can be done in the spectators hands, in my opinion, should be done in the specs hand. I have my personal handling of CoinONE that I never perform for laypeople because Roth's is stronger for them.

Yeah, that's the one. I'm sorry but David Regal distorts my view on reality sometimes.

I love practicing CoinOne. I love the knacky production so being able to do it makes me feel so happy.

But I agree with the people above that Roth's version is by far the best as well as the most simple.

I like both the coin one vid and Roths I feel that the alt. handle of coin one where you do the last coin in the spec. hands almost identical to Roths version is really good. What is hard with the coin one is the angles it has to be done low but other than that its great when you get a chance to do it. Just my thought Sean.

Just want to point out that Daniel Garcia has also a great version of coins across with a shell done in spectators hands, and the climax is that the last coin visually transforms into a ring that has been in the spectator's hand the entire time
