Maybe it's just me but the effect doesn't look very magical to my eyes. Instead it looks incredibly mechanical! To "produce" the coins he stacks them strangely in his hand and drops them 1 at at time on the mat. It just strikes me wrong in the manner that he produces 3, then picks up 2 to stack oddly together to produce a 3rd and so on. I showed this video to my younger sister (she's 11) and she said it looks like he's taking the coins apart when he picks them back up and moves them around. She does not know what a [ is btw. Having the trinity and dream coin sets I'd have to say stay away from this - In my opinion it screams gimmicky and you'd be hard pressed to wow somebody for more than a few moments. Sorry guys - just my opinion.

Agreed. That is exactly what I thought as well. However, I almost wonder if he has a presentational hook to justify stacking the coins before the production.

Otherwise, love the graceful hands work.

If he slowed down a little it would be nice .....Angles are a problem with this I have watched him at work watch the angles!

I performer the same effect with TUC and this is pure magic. Because I produce 4 coins first, I show the coins for both sides and I duplicate the coins, when I make appear the second coin from the TUC I show this coin for both faces too. When I put the TUC together they works as a stack and when I want they can be separate very easy. Now, I have 4 Ike TUC, so I can make appear 8 coins, I'm thinking to get 4 more so I will be able to produce 16 coins.

I saw this at MagicLive and Johnny was selling this effect for $80 off retail. Didn't buy it at the time but now I'm second guessing myself. Anyone know where I can get this at a discounted price?

It's been a while since anybodies posted on here and I just felt like saying that the cheapest place I've seen this set is on Penguin where I bought it for $300 which was a steal and I can't wait to get this set because it looks amazing and even my parents who are my most critical audience thought it was amazing what they saw.

Also I was taking a look at the description and how it can do over 50 effects with it and I was wondering, do you know if the stuff his other coin sets can do you can do with this one? It's certainly feasible since it says it's capable of doing at least 50 effects with it but I'm not sure. Hope to hear from somebody soon.

Sincerely,

Matthew

I have the coin bomber set.. and it is absolutly amazing !!!
From close up..it is not detectable.. The Wong demo clip can be closer and with better definition.. and it would still be undectecable..

Wow - that is magical, Joe! Who's that? Cyril?

Was that done with Johnny Wong's Coin Bomber? Had to be over a hundred coins by the time he finished!

Thanks!

I am happy with my Coin Bomber. It is the same as the Trinity Coin you just get 4 of the Trinity Coins with the coin bomber. I have emailed Johnny Wong several times and he always gets right back to me.

Cardcltr. Try cleaning the inside of the edge. There's probably some
sticky gunk in there. I had the same problem with my magnetic flipper coin.

Hopefully you DO realize he asked that question almost two years ago...

Johnny's coins are a thing of beauty and having purchased 4 sets, when Trinity first came out, as back-up etc. I discovered that the "endless" appearance of coins was a matter how many sets one cares to have in play, given one's skill. I recommend Bo Bo's work for creatively extrapolating on the one-ahead principle here applied to, of all things, coins. Wong's coin's are a brilliant invention!
All the same, viewed in the video, as Wong carries on with the stack & release process, the audience sees the coins appear (one by one) as it were, but despite Johnny's double-handed dextrous coin-roll, his pushing the coins together comes across in a rather unnatural manner (like he's making a sandwich). This stands out when you compare it all to the more natural way he handles the the coins before that odd pressing together of coins.
I start in a Down's position, with 2 sets of coins in each hand & the coin(s) come down from a chest-high position & a little closer to the body, before going to the mat & on to the multiplying revelations. Then, while attending to somewhat more sensitive angles as challenged by the audience's viewpoint, I place each coin down in a progressive spiral geometry (hypno-coil) layout. The pattern used is helpful to holding the attention of many members of the audience.

I would be remiss if I didn't leave some magical bread-crumbs for those who care to watch the Master himself in action. T. Nelson Downs in his element.

If you will allow a side-note to a new-bee - I have discovered that in terms of a 'performance' schedule; I work once a month to keep my interest in magic alive. Having done shows to make sure I stay in the loop, I got tired of my own work, no matter the applause. Wong's coins are a combination of some skill and more importantly how fresh one feels when performing. Indeed, the world loves to be fooled!
