It is quite good, and especially if you are looking for a great routine using a flipper coin.

A couple of the phases were printed in Power's book, "Power Plays."

Here is a link to a discussion about it on the Café:

Yeah, the forum link that RevJohn posted has the info you seek.

It is worth the money.

I was looking at this yesterday, and was wondering how well this would work with a non-Schoolcraft flipper. I'm concern about setting my flipper so many times in front of an audience.

Flip M Out is a great routine! I've only played with it though. Never really put in the time it deserves. It does have a few BOLD moves, but it would have fooled the hell outta me if I had not read the description and saw it performed. ON the other hand, Eric Jones has an incredible looking routine in his lecture notes that is somewhat similar. but VERY different...if that makes sense at all. I saw Eric's live at a lecture and it's crazy! The man has some of the best sleight of hand I've ever seen.

The first two moves in Jaxon's routine(coin across in the spectators hands and then a penetration) are things of beauty! the third move requires strong misdirection which I am not good at. I am having a hard time following Eric's lecture notes without actually having seen the peformances. Wish he would post some performances so I would have a better idea of what I am supposed to be doing. I have been looking at several different routines to try to come up with a solid coin production followed by a 4 coins across effect (which definitely includes Ron's first two phases).

I have seen Ron perform this many, many times. He has used Johnson (or Sasco, can't recall) level an up to Lassen level of flipper coins. People will probbaly not notice anything if you do not call attention to it. He has left the coins on the table for a couple of minutes after performing it, and nobody even grabbed for the coins to examine them.

When you place it in your hand, you don't need to set it immediately. It is easier to set the coin as you are reaching for the next coin. Of course, it has been a long time since I have read through the notes he gave me, so I don't remember the exact sequence of moves, but just remember to not call special attention to that coin itself or when you set it.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Tom

I think I remember reading on another thread that Ron preferred to not use the more expensive gaffs, in case they get dropped.

Meanwhile, I had dug my flipper out, and the band had disintegrated. It was a bit of a chore, pulling the piece out, cleaning it out, and then put it all back together with super glue.

What do you guys think f the method to turn the Flipper coin into a Gravity Flipper?
