I used to do a one ahead non gaffed coins across routine (flying coins, Winged silver)but since my stroke it is not looking as clean as it used to...Does any one know of a good gaff (besides a shell)that can help me with this..I am trying it with the flying coins cups,but it doesn't look or feel as strong to me. And I really do not want to do a 3fly effect, as it is MUCH stronger on the table or in a spectators hands...

I hope I msade sense and explained myself well (or well enough)

Are you talking about a C/S type of effect, two different colored coins, for the effect? Some of the split type coins may do the trick. Maybe even a SS. Please give us an idea of the walk-through you're doing, want to do. The solution may be as simple as using a C/S coin.

I developed effects using the "PalmerClip" because of my limited hand mobility. Might wrk for you also.

No gaff -- just a different handling with extraordinary results.

Maybe a "flipper" would do the job! Dan Watkins has a very good routine on his DVD "Coin Man Walking" It's a visual coin across in spect. hands.

Have you looked at the trick in Hoffmann's More Magic? It might be the first of its kind and from what you've expressed it might serve your needs. If you use the flying coins gaff in addition to the approach in the Hoffmann trick... Smile

Obsidian52,
there are only a handful of coin gaffs on the market that are easily activated.
- As you mentioned, the "X-Sh..l" is one of them.
- The standard fl..per requires a quirky motion to open the gaff so I would suggest the gravity fl..per. The downside to the fl..per and gravity fl..per is changing out the band if fine tactile finger movements are a challenge for you.
- The new TUC is very easy to open
- spl.t coins can be easy to open if you use mouse tape or better material.
- you may want to try a magnetic ring with a steel core coin if you are use to the technique of one ahead with an extra coin.

I hope this helps.
