THIS LOOKS AWESOME!.......

Just out of interest, how many of you on here can roll a coin down your hand? I've been practicing for months... 5 mins a day.... just cannot make sufficient progress.

Make that about a half hour a day and you'll be in business in no time.

What people need to realize about this is that it's not EASY to do. In fact, this could require months and months of practice before even becoming somewhat proficient.

At first glance I thought this looked great but then I couldn't help having this thought. I hope I am wrong but since you have to adapt this to coins or other similar items I imagine that you wouldn't be able to do this on the fly. I watched the video and thought if you really were in the scenario presented on the video and you did something like this, I think almost automatically everyone would say "that's cool, now do it with my chip". And if you couldn't it would not matter how legit your chip looked even if they found nothing wrong or unusual about it. They would think you have a "special" chip. The thing about coin rolls, chip stacking or other manipulations is they can be done but not by everyone they take practice, dexterity and skill. This looks like that but can only be accomplished by a secret gimmick. Doing a bunch of seemingly impossible stunts and then doing something that requires a gimmick only cheapens the actual skill required to do the previous stunts in my opinion. I hope I am wrong I hope once you have the gimmick you can pick up any relative chip and do this on the fly. But the way the ad copy reads I don't believe so. Screams magic for magicians to me and I am not one to be super critical.

Are you talking about the coin roll or Charlie's new trick?

Isn't this advice true about any magic trick gimmick? So they say do it with my chip. So what. Do what most competent performers do... Move onto another routine.

This is one of those quick interludes. Do it and move on.

Was this covered in Charlie's lecture on penguin back in May.

This does look really nice.

Has anyone asked whether anything needs to be DITCHED at the end?

Here's a little finesse from Bill Malone, that will make sense to those who have the props. Display a few chips in your left hand, and reach over to take one with your right. It's this one in your right that you perform the stunt with.
Daniel Cros and I came up with this when I was contacted to do the Holland Casino commercial and mockumentary.
Chipmaster commercial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wARax5hD3U
Mockumentary Video "The Man Behind the Chip" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kB7bn4R1FA

If anyone is interested, this is just one of those things I often perform in a casual manner. A good way to whet the audience's appetite prior to a gambling demonstration. When I toss it off in a lecture -- with no explanation, of course -- it tends to be the one trick people always ask about. In my Penguin lecture, it was the same thing. When Martin from Bazar de Magia saw me do it in Santiago, he immediately sought to buy the rights. Daniel Cros and I agreed, as we knew he'd do a good job and is a first class producer. Hope you like it. I look forward to seeing people showing off with it.

What does it matter if something has to be ditched, switched, or hidden. The demo video looks pretty good. We're magicians we're supposed to ditch and switch stuff. That's why we're in business. If there was no ditching and / or switching any one could be a magician and we'd be out of business. The world would no longer need us.

I think it looks great. I'll have one.

Penguin has it:

http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S15773

Blurp:

"When you're inches away, the secret of the stunt is impossible to detect. It looks like you're REALLY balancing a chip on the tip of your finger! It looks perfect from all angles and can be done surrounded.

No thumbtip.
No magnets.
No threads.
No skill required

You will also obtain 6 bonuses, including Charlie Frye's step by step explanations of a number of impressive and real poker chip manipulations. Also included is Charlie's version of the classic twirling cigarette paper, "The Paper Propeller."

It's obviously not a TT as it's balanced on the finger!

No skill. Easy to do. Unless they're lyin, don't think so, sounds like it's easy.
