I searched for existing reviews on this JB Magic product. I was going to add my review, but all I found was several pages of back and forth silliness and semantics, so I decided to just post a review:

"Double Deception" by Bob Swadling released by Mark Mason & JB Magic

I recently had the pleasure of attending a Mark Mason lecture where he showed us this product which features the original Bob swadling magnetic flipper coin set. Mr. Mason purchased the distribution rights from Mr. Swadling. I was unfamiliar with a magnetic flipper coin prior to purchasing this DVD package. I have a fantastic gravity flipper set from Jamie Schoolcraft.

Seeing Mr. Mason perform the coin through silk effect is what prompted me to purchase this effect. I will say this, you cannot do this effect as cleanly and fairly with a gravity flipper. This effect is a a visual masterpiece! The ability to show both hands empty before you reach down and "pluck" one of the coins through the silk, as well as the visual the spectators get when they are looking down at the silk as the coin is pulled through is what makes this effect so special. I highly recommend this DVD set, the visual penetrations possible are just plain eye candy.

On a side not, in speaking to the thread that went back and forth, you CAN open this magnetic flipper without the "key coin" using your fingertips.

Thanks,
Hank

It's a fine product and those who are serious about visual coin magic would to well to explore its possibilities.

BTW the "key coin" handling brings the Swadling Double deception set up for application as a substitute for the folder in the Roth approach to the coins through table or across.
...to all the coins I've dropped here

Troy Hooser has this in his book Destroyers and on video.

The idea of using the gimmick for coins through table is excellent.
