I was recentley looking through The Phoenix issue number 52 and came across the "Free" French Drop contributed by Walter Gibson. This sleight seems the same as Skinners Spider Grip move, at least in theory.
In the Phoenix it states that "Walter Gibson dug this one out of a dusty grave. Whose it is we don't know but in its place it's a honey."
Am I missing something or are these two sleights one in the same.
