Good routine Report this review

This is a fun little routine that will teach you a couple of basic coin sleights. There are no gimmicks involved. You're just doing a palms and switches.
The second switch is probably the move that will take the most practice, in order to get the proper timing down. It's not very difficult, but you need to be able to do it very smoothly in order for the illusion to work.
You also end reasonably clean, because when the spectator discovers that both holes are now in one washer, all the initial heat will be on the washers. This gives you plenty of misdirection to dump the one you're holding.
Besides this basic routine, there is also an extended routine that includes more transformations and introduces some more handling elements. This is also good stuff and well-taught. Once you've got the basic routine down, definitely move on to this one.
Something that doesn't use the same old cards and coins. Report this review

This is actually the second time I purchased "Holy Moly." I carried the first set around in my pocket for about a year before one of the washers was lost. (And to prevent this from happening again, I also purchased Joshua Jay's "Pro Carrier" in the same order, to store these washers along with my gaffed coins.)
I like that the magic happens in the spectators hands, and I love that spectator can examine the washers to look for moving holes or any other trickery.
In my next order, I plan to purhase Sankey's "Holy Stretch," which adds one more magical moment to this effect. For the price, I wish that Holy Stretch was included with Holy Moly. But I wouldn't go as far as saying it's overpriced. As an item's value is whatever somebody willingly pay for it, and I'm willing to pay for both pieces.
best sankey product ever Report this review

This has to be one of the GREATEST sankey products ever. Not only is it practical, but it packs so flat and plays incredibly big. I performed this at school on a live show and got the best reactions and it totally made my reputation.
The gimmicks you get are not normal washers, the holes are smaller than a normal washer. But with that aside, they still hide underneith your fingers very well when you do the spellbound. THe effect is straight forward and simple. SO I highly suggest buying the DVD. It's full of great bits to use and you learn a lot of really nice stuff. Plus it's pretty cheap for what you are paying for. BUY NOW!!!!

This is my favorite pocket trick ever! Two normal washers, one in their hand, one in yours. Visually pull the hole of yours and make it travel to theirs.
The holes are real and not some fancy, expensive, moving hole gimmick, just regular washers. The best part of this routine is that it's organic, visual and surprisingly, EASY!
It's a true laymen killer (not literally). And for this price, come on! Just get it.

I've gotten so many great reactions for this effect! I busk on the street and this effect has gotten me ten dollar drops in my hat. It's AWESOME! The only down fall is, it's angle sensitive. You can do this with two or three people facing you and it can't be done in the round. I still say buy thiss effect if you're a strolling magician. I do my act on the street and wait for most of the crowed to leave and there's people sometimes that wanna see more, then i pull this effect out. I've gotten two drops in my hat from the same person because of this effect. Add to your cart!!
Easy and people love it. Report this review

This is another Sankey effect that I've recently picked up and I loved it when I saw it. I wondered how many slights were being used, what advanced crazy move Jay had to use to pull it all off, and then I popped in the DVD....
Brilliant set up, and performance. This routine is a lot of fun and simple enough for a beginner magician like myself to perform. Pick it up. It's a blast.
Great routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 8th, 2012
I really like this as a replacement for copper silver routines. It is excellent in that it can be performed totally impromptu when someone asks you to do magic. You can have them in your pocket and say "I don't have anything with me, I just came from the hardware store to pick up some nuts and bolts... well, let me see what I have..." You pull out the washers and the routines ae endless. I would have liked a bit more comprehensive number of moved (Like Greg Wilson does in "ring leader"), but I still gave it five stars because you can take the moves he teaches and come up with a wide variety of stories and routines. Thank you.

This is my favorite non-coin coin effect. of the simple handling and the advanced handling I only use the advanced. The simple handling feels like it is over before it begins and with something like a moving hole, there needs to be a bit more build-up. Jay Sankey does an excellent job teaching each trick step-by-step. For beginner coin magicians the advanced handling will take a little work, but once you have it down you will have a portable routine ready to go. For strolling magicians there is the bonus of instant reset.

great strolling trick Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This is a great bit for strolling acts. As with all presentations, you will need to practice the moves, patter, and presentation. You can easily adapt the moves and ideas to other presentations. Beginers could pick this up with a few days of practice.
