This is one of the best DVDs on coins avaliable, Reed's moves are flawless and the beautiful part is that he does not uses any gaffs. His 13 coin matrix will blow any one away.

I had the pleasure of meeting Reed at the Magic Castle several months ago. Not only is he a wonderful magician, but also a wonderful person.

This video might be in VHS, but I'm not sure.
VINNY

Nevertheless, the material rocks. I suggested you get a VCR that handles VHS and DVD.

Vinny,

How is the material on this DVD compare with David Stone's material? Which one is better?

I like David Stone's routine and his routine blew me away and I have never seen Reed's performance.

How does his skill compare with David Stone?

Hengky,
It's like comparing apples and oranges. Both are wonderful coin mechanics.
I recommend Stone's DVDs as well as Reed's;
I really could not choose which one is better, What I like is that no gaffs are used and all the effects are inpromptu. that's all I can say . Both Stone and Reed are recommended in my opinion.

I am glad to hear that he is not using gaffs to do the 3 fly routines listed in the contents. I was reluctent to but the DVD until two of you mentioned the effects are gaffless. I was worried these were more of the "flipper/shell" type variations. Thank you guys!

I think they meant that the trick with all of the coins the 13 coin trick is gaffless. I hate to be the one to tell you that the Regular three fly and elbow knee and neck use a shell. However it is used in a very unassuming manner. The international three fly does not use a shell or flipper. It does make use of a gimmick that most coin guys have but very rarely use.
This trick has gotten alot opositive reactions from magicians all over the world not to mention my audiances that are not magicians.
The international three fly structure is so thought out that the audiance will in there mind come to the conclusion that you must use six coins but then it is completely impossible because thay clearly only see three at all times. All that are ever seen openly is three coins. This is a stone cold fooler. I have made a real lating impression with people with this effect.
Just a few cents worth and wanted to clarify for you.
I will say in all of my material you will NEVER find any flipper coin work. Because I will never ever ever use the gaff.

Reed, don't you ever have problems classic palming soft coins due to the worn edges? It seems they'd be hard to control.

I used to have problems in the beginning. I just continued to use them and gradually I got more and more proficiant with them. I also learned to control them. I do put a bit of a mill on them and here is how. I use my closet door track. I put a coin in the track and put a heavy duty file top of the coin and roll the coin with the file back and forth a few times. This gives a little bit of an edge, without hurting or distorting the coin at all.
I hope that tip helps.
cheers

Reed,

Do you go for silver halves in the form of Kennedys or walking liberties? And why do you pick the coins you do (liberties or Kennedys)?

I love to use the barbar halves. They are thinner than most halves allowing for more to be hld out. They look magical, they are very soft and I just feel very comfortable with them. I like the visual appeal to them as far as the style and essence they fit me for some reason. I just always liked them so I worked out the control. Smile

Thanks, Reed. Is there any particular reason why you will never use a flipper coin?

Best regards,

I am probably the only guy in the world who after careful study and more hours than I care to think about, wasted on this partricular gimmick. I feel it is a prop that I have enough in the construction of the routines that I do, that I need to think about when entertaining. I do not want to think about or better yet say worry about a gimmick as un-reliable as the flipper coin. if it is to loose, if its to tight, if it is about to break or worse yet, break in the middle of a routine and ruin the magic. It is to tempermental, and I just don't want to have those worries when I am performing for a paying audience.
I know there are lots of guys that are very good and very talented that use this particular gimmick in their work, I will let them to it. I gave it a good ol college try, and figured a shell works better eliminates all of the worries of a flipper and is far more deceptive than a flipper. I have thought about it and have never been fooled by a flipper coin and I have been fooled with shells even the other day I got fooled by a sneaky shell. For me I will stick with THE SHELL. I gave my flipper coins away and got more shells and have not looked back.
Remember You asked, these are my opinions and I am entitled to them. So anyone looking for a debate about pros and cons will not get it from me. Nor will anyone convert me back to the evil ways of the flipper coin. lol Smile

On the subject of flipper coins, Steve Dusheck came out with a coin gimmick called "Slippery Sam" back in the 70's. It's a shell coin with half the rim cut off. With this gimmick, you can do all the flipper coin effects and a whole lot more. It's one of the best under used coin gimmicks around. Eric DeCamps has a great routine in his "Compositions of Conjuring" lecture notes using this gimmick. BTW, all the material in these lecture notes are "workers". It's the best set of notes I've ever seen published. Todd Lassen could easily make this gimmick. It would be definitely worth your time and money.

I got my flipper from Todd quite sometime ago. Most of my coins are Todds. I love his work.
Pyro, I got that little zinger. I don't think some of the folks got it but I did it was funny, in a quite look in the eyes and a nod sort of way. Smile

Back to plugging Reed:

Just got the DVD yesterday and I had to recover before writing about it. Great material for workers and can be used in almost any close up/stand up situation. Reed has a confidence and panache that is hard to beat among coin magi and his material is a reflection of this ability. A must have for people interested in the direction coin stuff is heading and has been heading during the past few years.

Woo hoo!
