do you take off your rings when working with coins?... or do you modify your routine to work around them?

Specifically focused towards... the wedding ring. I don't really like taking it off.

I especially have a hard time doing the coin roll (over the knuckles).. the ring just wont grip.

Anyone use it to their advantage?

I leave my rings on, but it takes practice to avoid getting an unwanted "clink" sound at times, but then it just seems to work. Your hands just do what they have to do without you even having to think about it. I don't know whether it's better to leave them on so your hands look more normal, or take them off so you don't have more metal flashing around. Maybe in a way it can draw attention away from what you're doing, which could be good or bad. But you could use a coin against ring clink sound to your advantage. :idea:

I don't take mine off. I havn't had to much trouble with keeping it on. As for the coin roll, I am right handed and do my coin rolls on that hand. I don't do the rolls on my left hand or on both hands at the same time. Well, I have done it before, but I would say that 99% of the time I only use my right hand.

I too am loathe to take off my wedding ring (particularly when my wife catches me :shock: ), but it is very difficult to work with a wedding ring on.

Several of you have already mentioned problems with the coin roll, but here are a few others:

1. Finger palm
2. Bobo Switch
3. Full back palm
4. Tenkai (Goshman) pinch
5. Shuttle pass
6. French Drop

And those are just the ones that immediately pop to mind. Sure you might be able to rework your routine or change the handling of your sleights to work around it, but why run when you aren't being chased?

my friend did a coin through table to me, and used his ring to hit the table to make it sound as if it was still on top. It was really effective, so incorporating rings can be useful at times 8)
