H Rick,

There are LOADS of 3 Fly routines out there with either a shell or a flipper. As everyone has mentioned you could go with Troy's DVD's or books as he has a couple of different routines published with a flipper. Also the European Champion of Magic 2007 Will Houston has a great Flipper 3 Fly in his lecture notes. There are many 3 Fly's with a shell including a excellent version by Reed McClintock which I think was called scream fly and was published on one of his DVD's I will check and get back to you.

FInally I have an ebook being released next week through http://www.worldmagicshop.co,uk. On there I have put my professional 3 Fly which is VERY easy and uses a flipper and a shell. It has solved the final coin problem (IMO) as once the first coin has jumped across the hands never come near each other again. This means it eliminates the whole "Would you like to see the coin go the fast way or the slow way" patter line. There are another 6 or 7 routines in the ebook as well and it should be REALLY cool. I will put an annoucement out about the book next week when it is available.

Thanks again

Craig

if you can do the Allen Shaw production from Buckley's book and the dr roberts move from Bobo's you are all set for a VERY clean looking no-touch handling of the trick.

and yes you can substitute the Bertini EG production when you get that down. Smile

Garrett THomas has a great 3fly that is "no touch" using a shell and a flipper, though I definitely don't think I'd call it easy.

I second the recommendation of Reed McClintock's routine. In addition, both Mike Eaton and Robert Moreland have good routines in their lecture notes. One uses a shell and the other a flipper.

Has anyone had the chance to view Darrell's 3 Fly DVD ? I don't do well with notes. I have a shell that I use, and a DVD that was given to me but it really dosn't explain the moves in datail.

Do not check out 'Trick With 3 Coins' by Geoff Latta. It's really bad and on-one else but me should do it. Smile

Why must you use a flipper or shell ????? I can't recommend Eric Jone's
"Mirage Et Trois" enough its a DVD and he goes through everything in great detail.
The great thing is you can take any one of the three phases and use them on there own so really its three routines in one.

Dave Neighbors has a fairly easy three-fly using Todd Lassen's Cerberus that I like.

I agree. And the advantages are: The coins can be examined, no need to worry about breaking any, and they cost less.

Wes65,

Are you asking about the disadvantages to MY routine or to that of using a Flipper coin and shell in a 3 fly routine. I Honestly would suggest AGAINST using the flipper coin and shell as a combination fora three fly routine. With the exception of Garrett Thomas' version, you NEED both hands to close the flipper while handling the shell.

I would highly suggest using a shell in a visible coins across(3fly), but my question is why? Sure you can use the shell to get really clean displays, but thisis usually only maximized for the second coins travel, and really isn't useful for any other phases. Might as well use one extra coin.

No, I was not referring to your routine at all.....only pointing out that there are advantages and disadvantages both ways you go. I very seldom use any gaffs at all. The only gaffs I own in the dollars size coins I normally use are a shell and the Cerberus. Using the Cerberus I can hand the coins out before and after and do a three fly with out the hands ever coming near each other.....

What I was implying with my post was that no one should close his or her mind to the use of gaffs.....use what ever it takes to make the routine the best it can be.
