    note: not all these tricks are in my routine, but I can do them all which was the question he was asking
     
  4. Ya i agree with filth. Thats way to many tricks to have in a repetiore. Mine consists of:

    Biddle Trick
    Sloppy Shuffle Triumph
    Various Sandwich Effects
    5-Card Stud
    Beneath the Surface
    Commercial
    Continuous Force
     
  5. I think the point of having a list called your best should have just a handful of the tricks that you use the most. I think that's more than all the tricks I actually use.
    Top 5
    Double lift reveal
    Stigmata
    Control
    Thread
    Invisible Deal
     
  6. Those are the effects I use almost daily if not daily once - twice a week. I try to practice each effect I know once a day. So I dont think it is too many effects If I use them you know what I mean.
     
  7. How is the Shape Shifter a trick?

    -Doug
     
  8. I don't see his list is too many, being an amateur.

    The reason some magicians settle for few effects because they found out by performing that they do certain tricks, so they settle on these, this come from extensive experience ( 10+ years ).

    Mike Skinner had a HUGE repertoire, he performed em all perfectly. Marlo performed all his stuff too, and he's an amateur but performs alot.

    The reason amateurs tend to learn alot of tricks is because they usually perform for the same audinece unless they have performing opportunities, which are no way near a pro who constantly performs for a newer audience, hence even a large repetoir is not needed.

    I don't think Darwin Ortiz didn't perform all HIS tricks in his 3 books, not to mention other magician's effects.

    Cheers,
     
  9. Outstanding triumph by Jennings, my own no palm card to pocket, Eddie's Dunberry
     
  10. if you do it with a bluff pass it works great
     
  11. sinful shapeshifter could be a trick using a tilt then do the shapeshift change thats what id do and it kills
     
  12. i use
    5speed
    biddle
    ACR
    distortion
    gaff tricks
    2 card monte
    card to mouth
    invisible palm(both original and my own variation)
    um those r the ones i use about every week and i also do little quick tricks
     
  13. angle zero

    gaff tricks
    king rising
    sitting meditation levitation (my creation)
    Clash signed card thru bottle (my creation)
    card thru box
    factory sealed
    Hand to mouth ( i perform this at least once a day)

    that's pretty much what i NORMAlly do.
     
  14. SIgh. The lists for you guys is huge. I bet half of those aren't performed as well as they should be.

    For me, I stand alongside:

    Ramjollock by Benjamin Earl

    -Thought of Card to pocket by Benjamin Earl;

    -Election by Eric Ross;

    -Kiss Transpo by Wayne Houchin I believe;

    -Cheating at GIN. not really an effect, but a practise of card manipulation nonetheless (as long as you're not caught, which will then lead to a practise of picking up your teeth from the floor);

    -and last but not least, my own LIT type effect. Very simple.

    Gustav
     
  15. hmmm these are probably the most common ones that i use on a day to day basis...

    ACR
    Sandwich routine (my own...somewhat)
    Jokers wild(basically just 2 color changes in a good presentation)
    Signature Transpo (also my own)
    Biddle trick (not all the time, but its a good 'go-to' trick)
    Chicago Opener
     
  16. any rubberband magic / coin, ramjollok, pseudo brainwave in the right situation, biddle trick, a sandwich effect, thought of card in pocket. depends on the situation.

    I used to have more but I had to drop them as i've found this is limit if I want to be able to perform them all perfectly, any more and some of them start to get a bit sloppy.
     
  20. I usually have a handful of tricks as my main arsenal and change it up periodically.

    Right now I am mainly performing/perfecting:

    - Thread
    - Fraud
    - Redline
    - Lit
    - Tivo 2.0
    - Twisted by Daniel Garcia
    - Clutch
