this move is awesome man!! Are you using a 73cm or what? I've been trying to do it with my 3" acrylic but I just cant pull it off. I can see you fliping your hands over, but I just can't get the rythem of it. Do you have any tips cause that is an amazing illusion that I would love to show off!!

That trick is totally awsome. The description of said trick, however, is less than comprehensible to the n00b, such as my self. Can anyone expound on how, exactly, to do this trick. I am probly too n00by to be even trying but, hey, why the hell not give it a go?

Psh, what I've found is that the easiest trick to learn as a beginner, is the one you're most interested in, it gives you often the hardest part- incentive to learn.

How I went about learning this trick, as with most tricks, was to break it down into parts. First start with the ball on the palm side of your hand, resting on your fingers close to your fingertips. Then, get used to rolling the ball from between your index/middle finger, to inbetween your pinky/ring finger, and back again. From there, once you've gotten familliar with that, take your other hand and place it palm up next to your first hand, so that the pinkies are paralell, and the edge side of your hands are touching. From that, continue to practice rolling back and forth between both sets of Index/middle fingers. This part, (if you didn't know before) Is called the the wave

Next step, is to isolate this wave, so the ball stays in place while your hands move around it. More or less, the key is to move your hands to the right, just as fast as the ball is rolling left, and vice versa. Once you've got that down, you have the isolated wave

Now to turn that into the two-hand cross up isolation, at either end of the isolated wave, (when the ball is resting on your index/middle finger,) take your empty hand, bring it over the ball to the other side, allowing the wrists cross, and you now have two index fingers next to each other. Roll the ball into your crossed hand, stoping between your crossed hand's pinky/ring finger.

If you can do that, in both directions and isolate it, you've got the two-hand crossover isolation.

The last and final step (crucial to learning any move) is practice. Don't be discouraged if you have some initial trouble passing it from index to index, or if it's not completely isolated at first. The more you try and play around with it, the smoother it'll get.

Hope that helped spell things out better!

I know, I felt the same way when I saw this vid. So I just sat there, and watched it, and I focused on the left hand, only the left hand watching it, then when I was sure of it's path, I just watched the right hand.

It seems complicated, but so far this is one of the easiest I have attempted to learn from the 1b thread so far.

I know that isn't very helpful, but that works for me. I isolate a problem in parts, and then I mentally assemble the project.

I showed it to a friend, and when he viewed it the same way, he saw the move as well.

Hope that helps a little.

Oh! that reminds me, I forgot. When practicing this move, it helps to do it in front of a mirror. Because it looks ten times better seeing it streight on, (like in the clip) than from the performers point of view.
