I'll keep working on my rendition of Color Triumphant. I think Dingle had a great routine. I still perform it, exactly as written up in "Dingle's Deceptions". I just like to experiment with old ideas. Many magicians have color-changing endings they do. I've seen a very popular British magician . . . Michael Vincent . . . do a very clever handling of the Dingle routine. He's a full-time pro, sort of like you.
I hope you might consider expanding your view of what's available within the Triumph arena.
I used to do color triumph and roll over aces - Cervon's routine and I worked out my own roll over aces but instead of rolling the deck over I used a cutting technique - Cutting to the aces - then spread the piles and did the royal flush ending.
However today I would not choose to do this kind of a trick just because it doesn't fit into the way I like to work.

It's all about getting better.
Thanks for your feedback and understanding Glenn. I'm glad we can have these nearly adult conversations!!!
I agree I learned a lot working on the two routines that I just mentioned as I did with the triumph shuffle. First culling - then stacking - then cull stacking on the fly - then from a slug - then cull stacking from a slug up to eight cards.
And I must say the techniques have been worth the road trip to work out and learn.
Cheers and Merry Christmas!
