Re: Let's discuss the HImber Wallet...

Not a Himber wallet exactly. I use the Bendix Bombshell as my card in wallet as well as a Himber. I have one of the old ones that Abbott's carried many years ago. The instructions have some great ideas, Max Maven has a great routine, maybe 20 or better.

Re: Favorite Coin Routines

Liepzig cigarette paper

This is what I believe to be one of the greatest routines ever conceived. I love the fact that it is done so pin point in your face. I wonder if anyone else does it and do you get "Hey! I wonder what you do with those papers" I perform it all the time and that is all I use the paper for bu...

Re: Big Bang Loading Theory for Chop Cup

The first time I saw Don Alan perform the chop cup I went out and got one myself. I followed along with the tape and did it exactly like Don did. When I first saw that "banging" I thought wow that is fantastic you bang the cup just before you load it. Its these little touches people rememb...
