Is is the next big thing in standard gaffs, perhaps as important as the flipper (not as important as the shell, though, of course Smile?
Do you think it will become a fundamental addition to utility coins?

Having watched Split happens its celar this coins capabilities are not yet completely discovered, It offers some of the capabilities of both the shell and the flipper. I think it will become more popular, but whether it becomes as popular as the flipper, only time will tell.

A flipper and a split coin to me are similar but also different. Although with split coin you can show the coins separate, when laid on top of each other they sit at an awkward distance from each other because of the m****ts where as a flipper sits at a normal distance. . The upside to a flipper is also that it nest back very easily with a pop of the hand which is better for vanishes and sorts while you need to manually close a split coin. But, I do say I love my split coin.

Split coin has the advantage of no bands, but agreed does not look as convincing from certain angles.

I have a split £2 coin and am scared of using it because I feel it is so obvious.

There are two types of situations I will use the Split Coin. The first is in a big table situation (such as a gala dinner). As long as you have the flat side of the coin facing the audience you will be fine. You never want to show the coin edge on as this will give the game away. A big table situation allows me to do this with ease. I will also perform it walkaround when people are looking down at my hands from above as this is also an ideal situation.

You do have to be more aware of angles with the Split coin versus the flipper coin but as long as you know this I do not perceive it as a problem. As for which is better I use both coins for different routines. They both have their pros and cons and they can both create the most amazing routines when used properly.
