I agree Dan has a nice flipper routine, however, it's based on the Schoolcraft flipper. The routine won't work wih the regular flipper. Unless your referring to a different video than coinman walking.

I do She Fly (with a Porper chip flipper). Effect: Place a chip or coin on back of a spectator's hand (lady is best). Ask her to toss it into the air, turn hand over and catch it.

Good, now lets see if you can do it with two. (Set flipper and fp fair chip).

Place flipper on her hand. She tosses the two (?) chips/coins up and catches ONE.

One had vanished and you bring it out from behind her ear. Or wherever suits you.

Werner G Seitz (RIP) had a wonderful stand up coins through the table. He posted a link to a video somewhere on this site. If I recall correctly the flipper was used under the table and then he did a sort of shuttle pass with it above the table.

It also had a backfire which I think comes from Mike Gallo. I've seen or read seen instructions for the backfire somewhere but can't remember where.

I'm especially interested in this as I'm am looking to get my first flipper. I was under the impression that for most flipper coins--other than the new and relatively expensive gravity flippers--that you couldn't just lay them out on a hand or flat surface as two coins and have them lay there. My understanding the gaff will immediately closeup on itself because of the elastic tension. Frankly, I'd much prefer the coin to stay open sitting on the table, but I didn't think that would work with a normal flipper coin. I'm assuming it would work with a gravity flipper--although if the tension is too low, perhaps it might not close all the way when flipping it in the air. Sure wish there was a magic store close by with everything in stock to look at and hold!

Am I missing something in terms of the physics of flippers?

I don't know that much about the varous flippers, but you can email Jamie Schoolcraft or Dean Dill and they will give you a straight answer.

Why I do SHE FLY with poker chips is that if the flipper is dropped it will not become bent or damaged... but with a coin it CAN GET DAMAGED if dropped.

BooRadley,

The gravity style flippers have 3 characteristics not typical with the standard flippers:

1. They open via gravity. Simply pick the coin up by its edges and the insert will fall out (much like un-shelling a coin).
2. Once open it will remain open under its own weight laying flat on a hand or table. (This however can be adjusted by using different weight rubber bands or multiple bands to increase tension to make it "act" like a standard "springy" flipper.)
3. It has no visible rubber band groove in the edge of the insert.

Even though the gravity type flippers can remain open under their own weight, they will flip shut and remained shut if tossed into the air or from hand to hand.

In fact I use this characteristic in one of my routines on my [url=http://www.coinvanish.com/cmw.html]Coin Man Walking DVD[/url] referenced above (thanks for the plug guys.)

If you watch he demo clip for the DVD by clicking [url=http://home.comcast.net/~storage74/cmw.mov]HERE[/url]. In the middle of the video where the narrator says "Coin Man Walking is a training DVD that stresses the training" you can see how fast the coin will shut as I toss it into her hand.

As you can also see on the demo clip, the DVD also includes a full discussion of the Schoolcraft flipper coin with Jamie. All the attributes I describe above are featured, and demonstrated. The only feature that has since been added that I did not cover on the DVD is that all of the Schoolcraft flippers are made with steel cores now so they will adhere to magnets for ditching/holding, etc.

Ron Jaxon gave me my first experience with a flipper around 1991-92 at the first Abbott's convention I had attended. I didn't know anyone at the convention, so I mostly stood around and observed. I happened to get too close to the action at the VFW and became a volunteer. He did a coins across routine in my hands and completely knocked me out. I had not heard of a flipper coin at the time. That moment was a special feeling for me to have been able to experience "real" magic. And that memory is still vivid in my mind. I could walk past Ron now, and he would have no idea who I was or how powerful that moment was to me. That moment has always motivated me to try and leave that same impression on people who watch me perform. I strive to create that type of memorable experience with the spectators I encounter. Thanks, Ron for that moment and the inspiration.

Some would not like to promote that they are using a flipper in a recorded performance...although I do agree with you, I'd like to see some routines with shells and flippers so we know what effects are possible in the hands of experts. I'm a hack, but I do know some of my work has mystified laymen when using a shell. I'd like to add the flipper and make some "real" magic.

Some think the use of these props cheapens the routine. I for one don't care HOW you did it as much as HOW WELL you did it and mystified me. I understand pure digital manipulation is an artform--and I appreciate it--but a whole lot of normal folks outside the magic community don't care if a prop was used. They just remember being entertained.

What they have in common is that you can show one coin as two or two as one.

However, the shell coin allows you to completely seperate the two coins. Also a shell can be used over multiple coins. You cannot do either with a flipper.

A shell is usually easier to seperate from a coin.

A flipper is harder to open and usually requires a flicking motion, unless it is one of the new gravity types.

Benefits of a flipper are that two coins become one without any moves - you can toss the two coins, and instantly they become one. You can also toss a flipper from hand to hand as one coin, a shell would fly off of a coin, unless it was shimmed over a magnetic coin.

Personally, I think a shell is way more versatile, though when you need two coins to become one by tossing them, or dropping them, a flipper cannot be beat.

I just watched the clip mentioned by Casual Soul. Pretty routine. Interesting choice for accompanying music, though. I wonder if he directs his corporate clients to view that clip, unless his corporate clients are rap record labels. Hey, I think Frank Zappa's song "Billy the Mountain" is a really cool song, but I certainly wouldn't use it as background music for a magic clip. That could be a new technique for mis-direction. Right at the critical moment when the "dirty work" is about to happen...throw out an F-bomb, that would shake 'em up. I wonder if Mr. Vernon ever consider that technique???

So far none of my clients have seen any of my work on the web, that I'm aware of....

This video clip was actually circulated among a small group of "like-minded" individuals in the magic community and the music was merely a joke. I was purposely added as an inside joke. Everytime I watch it, I roll on the floor laughing....lol

I love finding out things like that. Makes me feel like I've done something right once or twice. :) Be sure to go to the Abbotts get together again and come say hello to me.

Eric:
Nice coin routine on that video. I have something I've been cooking up for a while now that would make a great ending to that routine. Let me know if you're interested and I'll send you the info.

I've tried for some time to make a video of my flipper coin routine. The problem is it's hard to get the full effect on video. It's much better experienced live. The first two phases of the routine I do are in Mike Powers new book Power Plays. He didn't include my last two phases. He feels that the first two phases are so strong that nothing can top it. I agree to some point but I still perform my last two phases. The phases go as follows:

[b]Phase 1[/b]Spectator shakes 4 coins between their cupped hand. One coin vanishes and appears in magicians hand.

[b]Phase 2[/b]Magician holds one coin under the table. The spectator drops 3 coins on the tabletop. one coin goes through the table.

[b]Phase 3[/b]One coin vanishes from spectators hand and makes a surprise appearance on the table next to the other two.

[b]Phase 4[/b]Last coin travels from magicians hand and makes a surprise appearance in the spectators hand. The spectator now has all 4 coins.

I love the routine because each phase happens in the spectators hands and none of the phases can be explain with logical thinking (meaning they have no idea a gimmick is being used). Many magicians wouldn't place a gimmick in a spectators hand but after years of performing this routine I've come up with many subtleties to prevent them from discovering it.

If I where asked to perform one close up routine to someone this would be the one I'd do. Not much can top it in my opinion. Of course, you have to know how to present it as always.

I'll try to make a video of it.

Jeez Ron...I sort of like to see that one. I know video may not be the best experience for it...but I'm really interested in some flipper routines. I also like to get full details. You said part of it was published...is it available anywhere else. I really like effects that take place or use the audience hands. Having 4 coins turn into three in a spectator's hands is just too cool for school!

I think you should market it!

Ron Jaxon,

In leu of a video, is the full four-phase routine written up anywhere? Perhaps lecture notes?

I have the Power's book, and while I can understand his enthusiasm over the first two phases of your routine, it would seem that a four-coin routine, logically, would need to be a four-phase routine.

The first two phases are great, and I'm sure the last two are as well. And ending with all four coins in the spectator's hand is the way it should be.
Message: Posted by: jolyonjenkins (Jun 26, 2006 03:27AM)
Ron - do you use just one flipper and no other gimmicks?
Message: Posted by: Jaxon (Jun 27, 2006 02:34PM)
Yes, it only uses one flipper coin and no other gimmicks.

I feel the same way. I mean Mike Powers has a great point about the first to phases being so strong that not much can fallow them. But I like the flow of the entire routine. It falls in the flow that I think all magic routines should have. A powerful opening. An entertaining middle (The surprise appearance get's great reactions) and a shocking finish.

I think the coins appearing in their hand is a shocking finish after you've been making them vanish from their hand. So it kind of reverses and I also agree that the fact that all the coins are in the spectators hand at the end is a very clean way to finish. Then I add the jumbo coin for a real kicker.

I was planning on waiting until my DVD is finished but it looks like it'll take a lot longer then I had hoped. I'm still aiming to have it ready by the time for the Abbotts get-together in August but we'll see.

So I took my written instructions and made them into an E-book. I'm not placing any link on my site to it right now. I'll just link to it from here (Don't want the entire worlds performing it yet.. :)).

Anyone who knows how the flipper coin works will understand basically what happens just by the description of the effect, but the most important thing in this E-book are the subtleties and presentation tips. During this routine you're placing a gimmick coin in your spectators hand and seemingly giving them control of the situation. Because of this a lot can go wrong if you don't know these subtleties. They casually encourage them to not only do what you need them to do but more importantly for them to not do what you don't want them to do. So I hope the information I put in this E-book will allow you to avoid those things that can go wrong. It took me about 15 years of mistakes to work them out.

Anyway, here's the link to more information and where to get the E-book. My friend said I'm stupid for putting this price on it but I feel it's fair since you'd have to pay for a flipper coin too.

I first saw routines with the flipper by Troy Houser (sp). After being blown away by his stuf I learned that others had "discovered" it simaltaneausly, that is, years before and a few since.

A new gimmick only alters the current effects and methods a tiny bit, but after a while, once it becomes old, and new again, entirely new effects are created and methods exploited. It's pretty cool.

That will end today because tomorrow I'm releasing it on my site and the price will go up to $15. So if you've been thinking about getting the E-book and want to save that $5 you should pick it up today.

I love the flipper half. Once you get comfortable with the handleing and flick,you can mix it up with real coins to really confuse the spectator. Everytime it becomes one, you can say things like,No, you weren't paying attention its over here .It really screws with peoples heads. I might have to get the gravity coin and give that one a try. Just carrying it around and fooling with these,really gets the creative juices flowing. Lots of fun.
Message: Posted by: GWSchott (Nov 10, 2006 09:43PM)
Shortly after getting my Johnson flipper I swapped out the stock r***er b**d for one of lighter weight. The result? A flipper that opens easily without the need for any 'flicking' motion and one that lays flat without snapping shut. For me it works much, much better this way and is a thousand times easier to handle. The thing I like about the Johnson is that it's a nice combination of quality and price. It's the one I use when I'm working over hard ground, or doing a routine that could cause possible damage to the gimmick. Even though the $30 I paid for it wasn't cheap, it's cheap enough where I won't cry my eyes out if I drop it on the ground, which is exactly what I'd do if I ever dropped my Schoolcraft flipper!

I've seen a very nice flipper coin-trick by Joshua Jay where he let 3 coins disappear

"This capture was done 1966, after I received the Flipper Coin that Eddy Taytelbaum custommade for me, using an old Danish DKK 2."

I recently purchased a Lassen Triple Threat coin gaff and David Neighbors has kindly added me to a list to purchase the book by Mark Tams on the topic when it comes out. I recently also purchased and am awaiting the arrival of a Lassen Morgan Magnetic Gravity Flipper and am wondering if Mr. Tam’s book will contain instructions/routines for which the Magnetic Gravity Flipper can also be used? I would appreciate any suggestions of videos or dvd tutorials which I could access or purchase for my Magnetic Gravity Flipper. I am a relative newcomer to coin magic. Thank you.
Eric.

Dean Dill (Flip It) and Craig Petty (Flipped Out) have DVDs that focus specifically on the flipper, and Eric Jones has a lot of work on it as well.
