Retention Vanish

Discussion in 'Magic Forum' started by holo, Oct 7, 2008.

  1. Hey Everybody,

    I was just wondering what all of your favorite retention vanishes are and where you learned them?

  2. what is that ?
  3. coin vanish.
  4. Justin Miller's in "Silver Dream" is a nice variation. (

    There's some classics in "In the Beginning There Were Coins" by Jay Noblezada (

    best of luck,
  5. the one taught on is the one I use the most.
  6. I do a variation on this as well.
  7. I made my own, it's probably been made before so I won't be publishing.
  8. Wow man you don't know what a retention vanish is?? :p
  9. Revolutionary Coin Magic

    I like Jay Sankeys variation on David Roths retention that was originally taught is Revolutionary Coin Magic.There is a cool upside-down retention in there to that looks super sweet.i would definitely recommend that DVD to anyone who wants to know some seriously sweet coin magic!!;)

  10. Just publish it man, you know you want some extra cash. I'm really excited to hear about this new release.
  11. I just use the classic one by David Roth, but I agree with Greg Wilson when he says that the position of the fingers is not natural. The illusion is so convincing though, it is worth justifying with patter.

    I have actually justed switched to the variation retention pass by rubinstein. It is a lot more natural for me.

    Alright, i changed my mind. I am relearning all my retention passes because I need to find one that works best for me. the rubinsteing variation pass doesnt really give me that much of a retention so I am gonna experiment with some. Any recommendations?

    Here's one please let me know thoughts on practicality. It is original. Very original. So please don't attempt to reverse engineer okay? If you do you have no respect.
  14. I didn't really see it going into the hand, but on the other hand, i didnt see you steal it out. good job, but this is more of a standard vanish rather than a retention pass.
  15. I guess you're right, it's more of a standard vanish. Maybe with better timing it could work out more as a retention possibly. Thanks.
  16. Do you mind if I pm you with my theory on the method. I obviously wont post it here.
  17. Alright, you guys probably think I am crazy but I changed my mind again. I am doing the retention vanish used by David Stone. Its the classic Roth one, but he has obviously added some finesse. I was doing the rubinstein variation pass, but after showing it to some people, it was more of a casual false transfer (which I use the fingertip retention for) rather than a full out retention like the stone one.
  18. No I don't mind. It was kind of a joke to say how original it is considering everything out there. But thanks for asking!
  19. Louis,

    A Renention Vanish is a sleight in coin magic where the coin appears to be openly place into your hand, you close it, and it vanishes
  20. I really, really like Apollo Robbins' Wither Vanish. It can be found in Cultural Xchange v. 1, by him and Shoot Ogawa.
