I have a quick question before I shell out 36 dollars, is the gimmick a fl***er coin? You can pm me if needed. I just want to know because I already have a schoolcraft gravity and if it uses the same gaff I will just buy the used set.

Thank you,
Jordan

Actually it's by Mike Gallo, and no, it's not a fl****r coin. Visualize the name with the possible gimmick and you'll probably come up with what it is. Ammar has a version of Aldo's on one of his ETMCM videos, called sparky? jumpy? jimmy? - can't quite remember the name. It's a good video, and once you've seen the work, you can probably adapt other gimmicks to the routines.

Hi, Doug!

Is your memory not as snappy as it used to be?

Jordan, I'm with the grasshopper on this one. (Grasshopper, when you can snatch the stone from my hand...) The gimmick in Siamese coins is simple and elegant and allows for a lot of really cool stuff, some of which you could do with your flipper coin. But the package comes with a booklet and vid with a ton of routines by a master coin magician, Mike Gallo. While you may be able to come up with the gimmick on your own, I seriously doubt you'll be able to come up with the sheer volume of high-quality routines that come with the gimmick! There's some absolutely wonderful stuff here!

Thought I would throw in 2 English pennies on this. I don't think the point of the product value really has much to do with the gimmick, although it is nice to have off the bat, and it is well made. Once you know what it is, you could likely make one yourself. The point is, that Gallo has come up with some very clever handlings and routines for this thing, and you can see that much thought went into it. Now the value of that is, of course, subjective. That part might hold your interest! To me, that's the whole product.

Odd perspective if you ask me... I'd consider that money a bargain for what comes FROM that purchase, the right to go and ask Mr. Gallo for help as you explore the item and work toward routines that will serve your performing needs.

It's not just a trick but a, dare I say, gimmick that has many possibilities. And yes it would play well on TV. Not only fools the eyes but the ears as well.

FWIW

Cheers! Smile
