I am glad that people think enough of
Explosion to talk about it. I appreciate the positive comments and I am glad that people look at it from both sides. It is not for everyone. Thank goodness. Dean Dill

Which of Dean Dill's Close Up mats will fit the final 16 coin display? I'm thinking of getting the Ultimate Close Up pad. Will that be good enough? And is Mr. Dill ever planning to make the instructions for the effect on DVD? It will be a long time till I'll able to save up, but just wondering.

Dean Dill also teaches an 9 coin version of explosion which utilizes fewer gaffed coins (and the gaffed coins are ones that you probably already have). It is an amazing routine.

If in L.A. area, this Sunday Dill will be demming at the Dealer Day evenet at the Magic Castle. As will Joe Stevens, Mark Burger and George Robinson.

Hi folks,

Still amazed that folks are NOT applying Dean's method for explosion to other tricks like the Cylinder and Coins, Coins Across, Coins Through Table etc.

How about the classical "Free and Unlimited Coinage" trick done using modern technology?

As a silly person, I keep thinking about a five coin repeat where a magician sets up to do a great four coin trick but keeps on winding up with five coins.

It's temping to fork over a paycheck for the item.

Jon,

I'm still amazed that everytime a "new" (well, new last year) thing hits the market it's capable of inspiring such blind consumer loyalty... as long as the right name is attached to it. I don't think one pay check is enough... it should cost more.

RE: "Which of Dean Dill's Close Up mats will fit the final 16 coin display? I'm thinking of getting the Ultimate Close Up pad."

I also wonder which Dill mat I need for this. I mean, 16 coins is quite a few, and only a genuine Dill mat would be suitable... right? Also, which Dill shoes and socks should I be wearing when performing it? So many questions... hopefully there's a DVD on the market to tell me exactly what to do... ugh Smile

Sorry for the sarcastic rant. Next time I'll pause for a moment and ask myself... "What would Dean do?".

Mike it's okay. Not going to get sarcastic about brand / name stuff here.
IMHO the item has much more extensive use than the production sequence at the end of a chink-a-chink routine.

Imagine a Sorcerer's Apprentice type presentation for a coin assembly using "real" magic cards or a "borrowed wand". And then coins keep appearing! That could be funny!

As to using a special closeup pad... I've stated my position on that matter over twenty years ago and have not changed my opinion. Simply not my style to isolate the magic from the audience in that way.

Effect, yes. That particularly empty handed clean looking version... not really. Even dove steals would not give you exactly that look.

I tell you guys something if you are a working performer, this effect is like gold, I performed it for a group of people last weekend and it absolutely killed them!

One of the best investments I have made in a lonnnnggg time.

Thanks Dean for putting out such a great effect.
Oh, by the way, price it for $2,000.00. It is way worth it!!!

I am a working performer... that's why I can't afford it Smile Actually, I've spent a lot of time and money in pursuit of those items that I think or thought at the time I needed. I sometimes wonder if my bar act and books bring in enough to cover the expenses... but that's a question for a different forum. I can definitely understand the excitement of finding an item that fills a gap or answers a question that's been bothering you. So if this product gives you that special feeling... I say go for it!

If you are a working performer, then why would the price bother you?

It sounds nice, and I wouldn't mind getting one at some point. The purse palm as I am aware can be learned on Cultural Exchange 1 by Shoot Ogawa.

The purse palm taught on the CX DVD's (if you are referring to the "Apollo Palm")is completely different than the front finger hold used for assembly work. They aren't interchangeable.

Jon, are you saying you don't use or advocate a close-up mat?
Also regaridng 'Explosion' for those who have and perform the effect, do you not find that due to the startling appearance of an extra 12 coins, people want to check the coins out?

All I'm suggesting is that you CAN work without apparent "special" magician stuff.

I had the feeling there would be a "can I see those" moment at the end of the routine and I don't like producign things only to put them away after all that magical energy was expended. Such is why I not buy the thing. It would be so cool to do it with chocolate coins and give them out at the end.

I tend to agree Jon. That's why I tried to bridge the gap between special magician stuff and every day stuff by using a smily face mouse pad as my close up pad. It seems to blend in almost anywhere in this digital age... and a big yellow smily face is also good for a disarming chuckle or two from the spect's.
