Today we wanted to talk to you about a very deceptive move that is known as The Retention Vanish, an elegant coin sleight that has stood the test of time…
…and there’s a good reason why:
- It’s extremely fooling if performed correctly.
- It can be done with a borrowed coin anytime and anywhere.
- It’s highly regarded as the most visual, simple and astonishing coin vanish in the world!
The retention vanish is literally a retention of vision coin vanish. This means the eye actually retains an image of the coin in the hand for a moment after the coin has been removed.
Now, if you’ve never actually seen the classic retention vanish before, then there’s no one better than coin master, David Roth perform and teach it to you…
Retention by David Roth is is a very short download, just 2 minutes , that does exactly as promises:
It teaches the exact handling for the classic retention and demonstrates it impeccably well (all for less then £5)!
This technique is a wonderful classic and is the EXACT same video content as released on Stars of Magic (If you already have the original material, you definitely won’t need this).
The wonderful thing about the retention vanish is that you can not only use this alongside other vanishes but once you master the fundamental routine (taught by David Roth) you can start learning more and more advanced routines, such as Optical by Danny Goldsmith.
Optical teaches three impossibly visual vanishes and explains the neuroscience that causes someone to see an object in your hand when it’s not actually there in the process.
What You’ll Learn:
- Flip Flop Vanish: A casual toss vanish that truly looks like the coin is being thrown into your hand. You’ll learn two variations of this visually deceptive move. The technique is surprisingly simple for how good it looks, making this an accessible move for all skill levels.
- The Ember Vanish: This is easily one of the most visual coin vanishes you’ll ever learn. Performed from the magician’s point of view, with the spectator looking over your shoulder, they’ll swear they see that coin firmly in your hand before it vanishes!
- DG Vanish: Danny’s signature retention vanish taught in precise detail. After years of working closely with his students and refining his teaching to help them get the best results, Danny has discovered new drills and exercises that offer you everything you need to truly master this technique. Even if you’ve learned this move through previous projects, these extra exercises are guaranteed to be a valuable resource in making your DG retention as clean and visual as possible.
+ Manipulating Light: Danny breaks down the neurological principle that causes your spectator to see a coin between your fingers even after it’s already left your hand. Knowing how to use this glitch in the brain is a superpower that every magician should know how to harness. Danny will teach you multiple exercises and drills too fast track your progress and master this technique. Learn how to apply this principle to techniques you’re already using and make your magic more deceptive and visual!
Throughout this project you’ll learn new ways to simplify your practice routines and develop your dexterity quicker and with more proficiency.
