Hey guys,
this may sound like a really dumb question to some, but what is 'flipstick' magic?

Well to start, the 'flip' is part of a guy's name. It's a move from is act 'Duo' and it uses a wand or stick.

First time I saw this, FLIP had long hair and a beard and fooled Jay Marshall and I badly. It was in Amsterdam and we thought it was a mechanical item with a holdout. If you check Harry's fine write up, you will see it is pure sleight-of-hand.

The so call flip-stick move is used to vanish and reappear an object like a wand, pen, ..., visually from your finger tips.

As mentioned, you can get a routine from Tarbell V7 p221, there is a video of Cyrill, on youtube, doing a combination of flipstick(for wand) & striking vanish (for a ring), he has nicely knitted together a series of moves for a short routing. Also, Penguin Magic gave a short explanation of the move in with the Hot Rod pen.

As Pete indicated, it does look good.

On the DVD 'Extreme Korn' by Chris Korn there is a routine called 'Double crossed'.
This routine uses Flipstick moves with pens.

Paul Gertner had a great close up routine set to a poem with a color change at the end using a full size wand.Cordially,Howard

Shoot Ogawa has some great work on Flip Stick stuff
God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.

I first started doing Flipstick when I read about Cellini's work with it in a book by Frank Garcia.

If I depended on the first performances that I saw of it, I would have sworn off trying it. Most magicians, who try it, do it badly.

I second the voucher for Shoot Ogawa... Saw some of his wand routine last night, first hand AND boy, let me tell you.... Can't wait to get the proper resource material to start practicing it like that....

Cheers,

Kostya Kimlat has a very funny use for the flipstick move in the second volume of the Cheetah's Handbook, called "Wings."

Now, if only I could get my hands on volume one...

I found it, of all places, on the World's Greatest Magic Sponge Balls DVD. Frank Balzerak uses it in his bar magic sponge ball routine called the Gobefores, and he teaches the Flipstick vanish (very briefly) at the end of the explanation of the routine. I'd like to get a more in-depth resource when I decide to learn the vanish though...

I like Jim Cellini's version. His move is only slightly different but, to me, it creates a better illusion.

Best regards,

What I suggest is to learn and study the basic concept... THEN WORK OUT YOUR OWN ROUTINE/HANDLING and EFFECT. Try different objects, different reasons.

Once mastered, this becomes a very versatile move IMO. Really opens lots of doors.

Hobson Live has a short routine. More like a move or two but nice.

Where can I find Jim Cellini's work on the flipstick moves? DVDs or books?

Thanks!
