In my opinion, there is little point to being eternally proficient and ready to perform hundreds of tricks unless it is to stroke one's ego at magic conventions and club meetings.
There's a famous story about David Devant. If you are not familiar with Devant, he was probably the most revered magician of his day. A young magician told Devant that he knew 200 tricks and then asked Devant how many he knew. Devant stated he only knew 8 tricks. The point that Devant was attempting to make was that its not the number of tricks you KNOW that count, but the quality of tricks you know.
Best opinion so far.
I know quite a lot actually. From books, DVDs, forums or friends. BUT I only perform some that I'm familiar or you can say they've been built into me. My best one is the legendary ACR then finished by CTW. It is simply beautiful and you can have any patter you want.
Also, you end up clean and there is nothing to hide even if you use special wallet.
I perhaps only perform between 6 to 8, non-gimmick. Gimmicked? A LOT hahaha but I don't do them often as I sometimes feel annoyed bring the necessary gaff items. However, with UCCU, it is a great utility for card effects.
