Troy Hooser's Charming Chinese Challenge has become a masterpiece of coin magic. Why? It's extremely visual, totally practical and very easy to do plus it resets instantly. The Charming Chinese Challenge is absolutely the best penetration effect you've ever seen!

The effect is clean and simple: Three Chinese coins are threaded onto a silk ribbon. One by one the coins visually penetrate through the ribbon. You won't believe your eyes as the coins jump both off and on the ribbon. The routine is captured during a live performance.

Designed to be performed in extreme close-up conditions such as walk-around, trade shows or formal environments, Troy's routine will soon become a cornerstone of your repertoire. Even if you're not a heavy coin worker, you'll soon be able to master this fabulous routine. Each part is taught in excruciating detail, nothing is left out.

Originally published in "DesTROYers," this DVD contains much more information along with new handlings never before seen. These additional methods and sequences are well worth the price of admission, but there's a lot more. With contributions from Shoot Ogawa, Apollo and Thomas Wayne, The Charming Chinese Challenge has been taken to a new level.

Please Note: 4 Chinese coins needed to perform

Great effect! Report this review

Effect 3/4 The effect stunned me when i first heard of it. right then and there, i knew i HAD TO HAVE IT! But when i saw it i was like "oh cool" it might have been how boring it was to watch troy perform it with his soft voice that you need to turn up the volume to hear. Its a little dry and you will need to add your own little touches to it. but he performs it with them one by one falling off the ribbon and maybe a line or two. but please dont let this discourage you.

Layout of the DVD 4/4 I rarely see a DVD that is as well layed out as this one. He brings you into the studio of Bob Kohler magic to explain and layout each phase of the routine as well as hardcore handling tips and everything you need to know to perform this like its hot. he starts with the performance, then the introduction to the props and everything, then first second and third explanations, then the other tips and eveything from apollo, shoot, and thomas wayne, who wasnt even in the dvd at all which really dissapointed me.

The Teaching 4/4 Troy Hooser really astonished me with this teaching. Professional, intact, coordinated, perfectly scripted, and he doesent studder or trip over his words or even think about what hes gunna say before he does it. he teaches very good. have you ever seen a performer who teaches something with rope or something and you see all the colors clash and it looks tangled and you cant follow along?? this worried me because i though he wouldnt let me actually view the ribbon or anything. i thought i wouldnt be able to see it. none of this. its actually very clean. theres no odd turning or moving of the ribbon. its all ver straight.

Overall 4/4 This dvd was a good buy for me. Oh and if you buy this dvd, be sure to pick up some chinese coins and maybe a coin purse to carry it in. i actually use washers because my patter requires it. and if you buy the dvd, walmart sells quarter inch silk ribbon and personally cuts it by the yard (which is exactly what you need) for 97 cents. But it was a definet good buy for me and i lok forward to buying destroyers, shellraiser, silver surf and the other things from him. Buy it now!

Worker effect. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 24th, 2016
What I like about the CCC is it is visual, not too difficult to perform and the audience knows what's about to happen yet you make it happen - magically.
You need to supply your own chinese coins and ribbon.
The teaching is top notch plus you get bonus moves from Apollo Robbins and Shoot Ogawa.
This is a good worker effect. Combine it with a magical production of the chinese coins, and a vanish of the chinese coins at the end, and you have a complete close-up act. Highly recommended.

Very elegant. Report this review

Troy Hooser's Charming Chinese Challenge is very elegant looking. The dvd is shot well and he provides plenty of instruction regarding the effect. The only reason I gave it 4 stars had to do with the sound. It is very low at points and you have to strain to hear him.

Outstanding Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 1st, 2017
This video is very good for beginners, like me. I've always loved the Charming Chinese Challenge. Everything happens directly in front of the spectator. and Apollo slight details are very informative. can't wait to amaze people with this piece of Magic. Still have a little bit to come up with my own twist. Practice! Practice! Practice! Thank you Penguin Magic, and Troy Hooser.

Re Apollo variation Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 8th, 2015
This is specifically about the Apollo variation. It is a good trick. But the explanation isn't. The supposedly hidden coin is visible during Apollo's instructions. I also found that I needed a heavier coin than in the Hooser version.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 9th, 2010
I really enjoy this DVD.I feel good about investing in it.I got my money's worth and that is a good feeling

What I like about this trick is no matter what country I happen to be in,I will always be able to find a ribbon and 4 chinese coins

You will be able to do this trick almost surrounded and the audience can inspect everything.This trick does not require you to be highly skill master of slieght of hand

Again I am happy happy I decided.Please don't get this DVD because I want this trick all for myself.Hee hee just kidding

True worker Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 8th, 2010
This routine is a true worker. If you perform strolling magic then you know what I mean. This is a solid multiphase routine that gets more and more impossible. Troy does an excellent job teaching each phase step-by-step. He also offers alternative handlings to other phases. What's also great is that guest contributors offer alternative phases. You will need a ribbon and some chinese coins to perform this, but think of the coins as an investment as they can be used in many other routines.

beautiful routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 9th, 2013
I loved the routine and the teaching. Troy while very dry is thankfully very thorough and teaches every aspect of the routine well. My only problem is that it should have come with the props. Nobody likes to buy a trick that requires them to go shopping before they can practise it.
