I been performing this a year before it was on the market. I never had a problem keeping the three keys on key fob. I actually like having all the keys scratched. I never had a problem either with the lighting because they can easily see one key is smoothed and the other rough. My best or favorite thing I like about Freakey is it looks totally impromtu, let's face it how many people actually carry an english penny with them. And the keys are my real house keys , I never leave the house without them.

I was thinking about the scratches and I would hope the scratches are the same on both brass keys?

Anyways, I performed this repeatedly for the first time in my paid gig tonight strolling. Nice indeed. I use it for mentalism and it played very well as a compliment to other effects.

I thought I lost the FOB for a while there, was panicking. I really like the quality of the FOB and so far the spring has not become loose.

Its on to the Hyatt tomorrow night for a group of attorneys:)

Greg Wilson performed this on Reel Magic Quarterly issue 5. It was VERY close-up and looked amazing. I mean, like real magic. I think he should have used that footage when he released it.

I posted this elsewhewre, but here it is again.

After all this time, I'm getting Freakey. It's not that I didn't think it was a good effect ( I love Greg Wilson's magic ), I was just so attached to my c/s coin routine.

I'd take the coins out of a small, leather "purse" ( Ton's Onasaka's is the best ) and tell them I'm a coin collector and just got these form the local coin shop. So, using coins was never an issue.

But, when I saw Greg Wilson perform Freakey on Reel Magic #5, I was sold in getting it. Anyone that doesn't have it, get Reel Magic and watch Greg perform it. The camera is right on his hands and you see an amazing routine.

It is a great effect. Greg does a great job in the dvd explaining every little nuance.

I'm definately interested in purchasing this - I'm watching prices - they seem to have semi-stabilized in the $75-90 range.

Only "complaint" I can imagine is wishing there was one extra key so an exchange could be made at the end and all keys examined simultaneously.

While my paid performances or street performances wouldn't have the problem, I enjoy playing with my friends/family members heads occasionally and they're all too enthusiastic with "lemme see it" requests.

Jimmy, if you order direct through Greg Wilson, you can ask him about the extra key. Greg sells the keys "uncut" so that you can get them cut to match your house key.

I never had any trouble determining which is which as with age the copper tarnishes. I do however need to pull this one back off my shelf as it went there as I was cleaning out one of my jackets. Shame on me…

One of the best $100's you can spend (or less?)... My keys tarnished nicely. I usually have this on my keychain ready to go. Sometimes I forget it's even there, but only for a brief second Smile

For those interested, I asked Greg via email and he said he'll send an extra key to "end clean" with for $10.00 +S&H from his gregorywilsonfx.com - just e-mail him if interested.

Does anyone know where Gregory Wilson has been? I purchased Freakey from him around 3 weeks ago (on August 7th) and, as I mentioned here, he kindly offered to provide an extra key for me.

That being said, it's been quite some time and I haven't got a reply from his emails lately.

Anyone seen/heard from him lately?

Chris, Yep. I was just getting on here to verify that actually. There was an additional email address on the FreaKey website that I sent a msg to and I posted the msg here---Gregory said it was sent out 3 weeks ago; I just never got it. He overnighted me one FedEx. Very nice guy. Very easy to deal with. All is well and I'd have no hesitations about doing business with him again. Thanks for asking.

As for the effect itself, I'll try to make a full review of it later but in short:
Keys look great
It's so easy to do you'll be doing the basic presentation (presuming you have performing experience) by the next day flawlessly. We're talking verge-of-Scotch-And-Soda easy. Of course, you can add moves in and make it look even more convincing but the genious in this effect is how simply it is and how convincing it is, even with just the most basic of presentations.
Lots of extras on the DVD.
WELL worth the money. This is an effect I'll keep in my pocket consistantly from now on because...it's just 3 extra keys you throw on your keychain.
