(Mods, I was going to post this in the coin section, but then I thought this is more about direction of attention as opposed to strictly coin work - but feel free to move it where you see fit!) So I was checking out the video for Mirage again. I didn't so much like it the first time I watched it, and I went back to it to see again why I didn't like it. Here are my thoughts, take them with a grain of salt. Would this fool a spectators natural thought process? With the French drop, the hand that covers is suspicious because it's the hand that covers the coin. The eye naturally follows that hand - that's why it works -> that hand is clean. With Mirage (Keep in mind, I do not have this, so I don't know exactly where the coin is), the hand that covers is still the hand that suspicion is naturally on. Then at the end, it seems like it can't be shown. Won't this be where all the heat is? In my head, that is the first place people will want to look. Isn't that the equivalent of doing the French drop movement, but actually taking the coin? The psychology of this doesn't make sense to me. But I'm interested from the people who actually have used it, if it works well, and if so, why do you think so? And don't get me wrong, it looks very smooth, and very well done, it just got me thinking about where people look. I'm sure some people will easily be fooled, but someone who is really watching and thinking, I don't know... Others thoughts? Why would this sleight work?
