jay sankey is more of a card guy though
Sankey is just as much of a coin guy as cards. he is much better with coins in my opinion!
I also love watching Justin Miller do coin magic, I havent really seen much coin stuff tho.
Brad Christian forevaaa!
A few perhaps not mentioned, as I agree with, Kurtz, Stone, Troy Hooser and David Roth..actually, Chris nailed many of them.
Here are a few others that are very good.
Miguel Angel Gea. Great thinking, sick skills, awesome presentation, and a very nice guy. Others don't come even close.
Oh, I don't know how - but I forgot Brian Roberts
Out of ALL coin magicians: T. Nelson Downs (you cant argue with that.)
Out of the coin magicians still alive: David Roth
Homer and Chris of course!What about Williamson,Gertner,Kozak all have been great coin guy's as well.
Ohhhhhhh... Okay, I can't name one...
And more that don't come to mind straight away... I'll review my post later.
I still say Downs, Roth, Ammar, Slydini, and my the man that introduced me to all of it, J.B. Bobo.
All the best,
T. Nelson Downs the King of Coins.
Rune Klan Homer Liwag Chris Kenner and of course David Roth.
PONTA THE SMITH smoothiest ever !!!
And watch other videos
( Homer Liwag, and David Stone of course )
Most people only dream of being that good. So amazing.
Thats a hard question to answer. First of all, its not T nelson downs. He was certainly one of the greatest for everything he did but he couldn't be the best because he was standing on the ground while the rest of us get to stand on his shoulders.
If i'm making a list based on skill, and not (necessarily) entertainment value. The guys who can do crazy stuff that others can't do and the guys who do it the smoothest. The list would go something like this:
Ponta the Smith
Wow im drawing a blank now. But those are a few.
Hmm depends on which genres I'd judge them on.
To me, I would say the best coin magicians are Giacomo Bertini, Kainoa Harbottle and David Roth since I love their techniques and they're the ones who inspired me the most.
But on the other hand, if I'd judge on performance, excluding the ones I've already mentioned, I'd probably add Eric Jones and Michael Rubinstein.
But if I'd stop being an over-analytic ass and get to the point I'd just say Giacomo Bertini.
Haven't been on the coin board in a while.
God I love that video.
i would say eric jones and shot ogawia
ponta the smith
