I also saw Reed and got to talk with him at PCAM, and you guys are right..he's a gentleman and I enjoyed talking magic with him. Turns out we are both bugs on the theory and performance of magic (ala Our Magic)

Anyway, I saw him do the Coin Patriot, and WOW! what a finish. Especially for my American friends!

Now if he could only learn to do that in the shape of a maple leaf...

Well I received the DVD a while ago ( not trying to pick on someone else) and even though I love the slow and deliberate style Reed has, I did not find anything that interest me in Coin Patriot. But that is just me. Even though I can appreciate all the technique and ideas involved inthis kind of effect I do not seem to care. Well maybe next time. I must say that I greatly enjoyed his earlier offerings though. You can't please everybody I guess.... Smile

Curtis,

Re: I refuse to comment until Joe's copy arrives

You can comment away Smile I received my copy today Smile already watched it about six times now. Smile

This is GREAT stuff!!! And Reed is a really cool guy, and with this new dvd he's not only offering some amazing Routines but new ideas in coin magic And don't forget his tips at the end a lot of good info there.

Yves Tourigny
I think you should watch the DVD again and think of the ideas behind the routines, even if you don't care for the routines the ideas and concepts behind them should inspire you. (There's a lot of great ideas and thinking in theses routines) You can add to, take away, and expand on these routines or even apply these ideas to other types of magic (Cards, sponge balls, rope). I know I just got my copy today and it's got me thinking.

I think if we take Curtis's "Palms of Steel" Kainoa's "Coins on edge" And Reeds "Coin Patriot" combine with ideas of the past the possibilities are endless.

Reed thanks for the great routines and ideas. Can't wait to see this stuff live at the COINvention.

Best
Joe

Joe,

I'm glad you feel that Coin Patriot was worth the wait. Now that the boycott is over, I can say this:

I think there was a question regarding whether anyone is using this material. I can tell you that my current opener at the tables is my rehandling of Reed's seven coin production. I produce six silver dollars and a large Japanese coin. I then do "51 coins to pocket" (more on this later) then a HPC routine, and then my new handling of "flying eagles". All of which would not have come about had Reed not started the "heavy metal" craze. The opportunity to break out of the box, and work with more than my usual three coins has been very refreshing.

I have also incorporated parts of "Freedom Flight" into my own Fingertip Coins Across, and I have some very early work on manipulating an image on the mat. It's an 11 coin production, the coins are placed in a pattern, and the pattern magically changes.

Of course, I was around when Reed came up with some of this stuff, so I've had longer to mess with it. All I'm saying is give it a chance, and actually try the material. Soon you'll be carrying around 20 coins wherever you go, just in case someone asks you to do something. Smile

Oh, and Joe, regarding:

"I think if we take Curtis's "Palms of Steel" Kainoa's "Coins on edge" And Reeds "Coin Patriot" combine with ideas of the past the possibilities are endless."

...and if you add a few ideas from Jonathan Townsend, you've pretty much got my lecture notes. I'll post a note when they're available.

Yes can't leave Jonathan Townsend out. The man who started the whole Visible Coins Across (3fly) Craze.

I think you guys should do a huge dvd just on 3fly and it's variations.
Start with Jonathan doing his original handling and end with Reed doing his latest handling from "Coin Patriot" in-between have a few others doing their take on 3fly (Curtis,Kaiona,T.hooser,G.thomas)just to name a few. Not just do the trick and explanations, but with each one discuss the thinking behind it. I know this would make it at least a 2 hour dvd, maybe longer, but it would be one of the best dvd's anyone could buy.

Just send me the FIRST copy Smile

Curtis: are you still planning on doing this?

The Kamlicious one was talking about this almost a year ago....too bad not all of those names are going to be at the Coinvention....

I finally got my DVD-- and Reed's handling of 3-fly is FANTASTIC!!! I love the graceful speed (slowness, really) that he uses. To use an over-used cliché: it is worth the price of the tape! Now, if I could just convince my wife that my spending money on all my DVDs is worth it... *sigh*.

On a side note, can anyone recommend a coin shop in Orange County, CA (Irvine, specifically) that sells worn Barber halves?

thanks,

This has to be one of the longest threads I've seen in a while. To be honest at the beginning I wasn't that interested in buying this DVD but now my interest has been sparked. I’ve just got to see it now. Haha…

Best be quick, Reed will only have a couple more left.

(I'm sure close to a thousand people have bought this by now.)

Frank L., check out your friendly coin dealers in your neck of the woods for worn Barber halves.

On another note, the post office lost my copy (probably one of those days they went "Postal"--no pun intended Smile ). The kind Mr. Reed is sending me another one. Thanks!

Frank L., you should check out E-bay. I found it to be the best resource for getting silver coins. You might have to wait a few days until you see a set that you like, but it will come up eventually.

As far as 3FLY, I think Nate Kranzo's version using 3 different coins ( International 3 Fly ) is the best I've seen. Using different coins was a birilliant idea.

I have Coin Patriot and it proved "Reed is THE MAN".

Hi All.

As many of you know about a month ago my heart stopped and I died. Thank goodness for modern technology. I thank all of you for your words of encouragement and thoughts that have been expressed in e-mail and letter form.

When you die and are brought back to life something happens to you, I can’t explain it, but in my heart and mind feels different about magic. Now it is about the art of making your audience feel, and experience something special. Keep this in mind the material on “The Coin Patriot” is to create a work of art you can not hang on any wall but will last forever on the memory of your minds eye. Sorry if that is too deep but it took me years to put that phrase together, and it describes precisely what magic should be in my opinion. The reality is that all you take with you is what is in your head
Thank you all for your time.

Reed

Man, Mr. Reed I did not know you died. I am glad to see you are doing better now.

“The Coin Patriot” is so awesome. People, get it. That is all I can say.

Wow, I was wondering why I hadn't seen many posts from Reed in a while. Glad to hear your ok Reed. I do know that when you have a close brush with death, it makes you take inventory on the most important things in life. Take care. - Mark

Okay, that was a shock.

Sorry to hear about that, Reed. I'm glad you're okay (I figured you'd just been busy working).

As you say, thank goodness for modern technology.

My best to you and your family.

Cheers,

Cy.
