Which trick with a flipper did you perform first for a real audience.

I never performed with a flipper coin until I created "4 Coins, Your Hands". So that was my first as well.

I never liked flipper coins at all and never planned on using one. I thought the flicking motions needed to open them were not natural looking at all. I rather use a shell to show one coin as two or two as one.

It wasn't until after I got the Schoolcraft flipper almost two years ago that I even had any interest in a flipper. Jamie created a flipper coin that could easily be opened without the flicking motions, and could lay flat. These characteristics enabled me to create the routine.

Coins thru table from Troy Hooser's book. After that, a looooong time nothing, then Dan Watkin's routine mentioned above. Currently in developement a coins to glass routine. Suggestion: apply the gaff to Paul Harris' FreeFlight, interesting enhancement...
Dean Dill has some very promising things to look forward to!

I always perform "Touch of brass" by Troy Hooser.
It is not difficoult to do and very visual.

The New Antinomy Magazine will have a routine with a flipper coin and shell that I came up with a while back called Flash Coins Re-Lit. I've used this as an opener behind the bar, table side, and in walk around situations for some time now. The effect is based on Chad Longs original handling with three unprepared coins. It also has the advantage of allowing the performer to begin AND end clean along with a new move with the flipper coin and shell.....

I worked out a handling of a Visual Coins Across it played real well, and led me to better uses.

I agree with Mr. LeFay. Seen some of Dean's workings at the IBM and looking forward to his release of the material.

If you have a flipper, 4 Coins, Your Hands is the effect to perform. Pure magic!!

Hey Eric,

Was this the routine that you performed for me and Bryan when you came up for the MAES convention??? If so, I just want everyone to know that it is one heck of a routine, it's awesome!

I can not believe no one is mentioning Hooser's routine squeezed away. It is my favorite quick coin routine on the planet. So visual and very good reactions.

(An aside: my cheap Sasco flipper stays open flat on my hand and opens by gravity—it's just a question of how you set the elastic... The insert doesn't have a proper edge, though.)

Josh Jay just lectured for our club. I bought his DVD's Close-up Up Close. He teaches a coin vanish using a flipper coin and a shell which is the best I've seen.
Out of all the magicians I know, you're one of 'em...
