Got this email today (just a link to the blog post) and this looks like it potentially be a pretty hard pill to swallow for many coin magicians as well as future ones. https://coolotis.wordpress.com/2018/12/0......tuesday/

I am glad he is not going "Full Retirement" and am also hopeful that (as he states in the blog) he may come back to a decent percentage of what he does now in the future if and when the need hits him. I totally respect where he is coming from though but I also feel that "The Best of the Best" is going to fade out eventually. Happily, he will be keeping his shell set lines running and might even get time to produce a "New Gaff" that "Dave" (I am 99.99% sure he means our own David Neighbors) Smile has come up with and they have discussed at length according to the blog.

Let's wish him well and hope or the best in the future. I for one, feel his contributions have made the "magic world" a better place over the years.

I have a few of his gaffs but I am soooo glad now that I finally jumped on a "Card Genii" that I have wanted for years (but never caught him with any on hand) not long ago instead of waiting for him to make another run. It is the Lassen item "I" treasure the most in my arsenal.

I don't think it's all doom and gloom... I read it as he's just not taking any more CUSTOM orders... that he'll continue to make runs of different things as he as been doing all along.

On the Card Genii -- I was thinking about getting one of those, but lately I've been toying with making magnetic cards and I've read that high heat can "kill" neodymium magnets.

I am glad for you as well, but I don't think you have to worry too much. I think he will be making more triple threats and posting them on his website, just no custom orders.

He isn't quitting or anything. He I was just meaning that eventually, there will be less "Master Craftsmen" to make the high quality many of us are used to. I guess in a world of "Instagram magic" and all this quick flashy stuff, you don't need high quality gaffs. The "pros" out there will be the ones who miss the high end stuff.

As I live in the UK it's not quite as simple as just popping on to Todd's website to purchase his products especially when it states on his website to contact him first so obviously I'm just glad this announcement was made after my order had been sent but either way that's good news for those that like to purchase quality gaffs from Todd Smile
