Hi, I have just brought a magnetic flipper in english 10p version as I was unable to get hold of a UK coin in gravity form. My hands are fairly small so doing vanishes with £2 is often difficalt.
I got a DVD with the coin but it focuses on gravity flipper routines, can anyone suggest any routines for magnetic flippers or any books/DVD's which focus just on the magnetic kind.
Any suggestions would be appreciated

Sorry I can't. I don't even own a magnetic flipper. I can't really even see what benefits it would have to be honest..........(unless you were using in in conjunction with an M5 or some PK effect.

If anyone can prove me wrong, I'd love to hear what they (the benies) are..........

Well, first of all, you can use your magnetic flipper in any routine that calls for a (non-magnetic, traditional) flipper coin. Actually, I have a magnetic flipper and I used to have a magnetic expanded shell... I used to use them both in a little "3 coin" routine (occasionally finishing "clean" with my Raven). You can also use other magnetic coins together with the flipper (the advantage being that you can handle multiple coins as one). As for specific routines that call for a magnetic flipper, I cannot think of any off hand...

Good Luck,

I like to ”play” with magnetic coins – try to figure out some fun tricks/routines. Magnetic flipper can for example be used in “coin thru…” - effects in combination with other coins. As your coin is not a gravity – put it on a magnetic card and it will look like one – show the “coins” to the spectators and tip them into your other hand and go from there………

Have fun.

Hi RJW,
Bob Swadling is selling a magnetic Flipper-Coin and is giving Routines with it. Try to get the small booklet he is giving with the trick from him.

Is there a link to Bob, or an email? Now that you mention it ToHan, I like the idea of a coins thru! I thought that this was actually some kind of flipper that "magnetically closed", but it sounds as if the coin itself just has a neodymium in it or something. I could use that!

Thanks!

How do you open the magnetic flipper? Do you use another magnet to repel it open?

To solve the problem of gravity, take a long balloon and, with small scissors cut small rubber bands. Replace the present rubber band with two or three of these. First you'll be saved if your present rubber band was breaking and, also, the band will be softer making your Flipper almost a gravity one. If this was not sufficient, unmount the insert and file a bevel near the hinging part with a nail file. By pressing there under the (reset) coin, the insert will pop out which is far better than having to give it a shake.

You open the magnetic flipper with an extra magnetic coin.

Thanks Lawrence O for the suggestion. I was just going to try and put one back together to make it “looser” so that it acts like a gravity flipper. Cheers!

Mark Mason is doing a nice presentation of these two coins. Two coins (open magnetic flipper) are shown on a silk held at the corners by two spectators. The performer pinches the center of the silk from underneath and releases it: one of the coins disappears and is brought up from under the silk to be handed out to one spectator who was holding the silk for examination (both performer's hands are seen to be otherwise empty. The other coin is given for examination to the other spectator who was also holding the silk.

Very clean routine.

Paul Diamond had two small books on magneticoins which are fairly ignored by coin workers even though they contain treasures.

The routine described above can be seen performed by Dynamo using a spectator's outstretched T-shirt on his Concrete playground DVD from a couple of years back.

Hello,

Sorry if this is being asked in the wrong place but does a magnetic flipper still use the bands or is it the actual magnets that make it hinge etc? I want a decent (preferably) UK gimmicked coin and was thinking about a magnetic flipper or Buttercoin but I just find the little bands really fiddly.

Where can you get UK magnetic flippers from?

Thanks!

http://www.kbmagic.com/ is a Tango dealer and sells lots of Uk coins. If you want a £2 flipper make sure you get the Gravity Flipper for £40 and not the cheaper standard flipper. I have one and it's pretty good.

I have a nice magnetic flipper coin routine on my DVD, "Uncovered."

The advantage is if, for example, you have a magnet in your rear pants pocket, at the end of the routine when you vanish the nested flipper and shell, the magnetic flipper will trap the shell between it and the magnet in your pocket for a complete vanish.

If you have a shimmed shell, the set will lock enabling you to throw them into a pocket or topit.
