Why do people always single out things & scruntanise every minute detail.

We have all watched the video & was impressed by what Charlie does, that's why we're here.

As for how it works who cares, if you can do that like Charlie, which you can, then it's worth every penny & more !!!

It's not what you get, it's what you do with it.

Too many assumptions, Charlie is a nice guy & credible performer. He is "Awesome" & so is the effect.

Practise is required in what ever you do, to get better.

Things are self-Working.........But YOU have to be there !!

Lets all talk about the effect itself Smile

Great Review

I received this recently, and unfortunately, I was dissapointed as well. I have other Charlie Frye material that I really like. It's understandable that not everything is going to be a home run, and this one just didn't do it for me.

I was hoping it used a different method than I thought it did when I saw the trailer, and I was wrong. It uses exactly what I thought it might. I'm not a magic historian, but I can't imagine this is a new concept. In fact, I'm pretty sure I have another coin effect that uses pretty much the same method, but with two coins instead of a coin and a finger, and as I recall, that effect was less than a quarter of the price.

You have to figure that there is a gimmick involved. I was just hoping the gimmick would have been more clever, perhaps something that could be used with any chip.

I think "Writer" has the best idea to modify this method to be used with something else, like a business card. That was probably the best thing that came out of this purchase for me. I think I'm going to have to think about how I could do something like this with a totally different method.

Sorry, but this effect cost a lot of money for a method that I don't believe is particularly new or unique.

Anyone that has it up for trying it out for soemone in a routine? It looks so good on the demo I'd be surprised if it didn't go over big.

Ummmm..... Maybe because we are tired of wasting money on things that we can't or won't use?

And maybe because we are tired of being lied to?

Just maybe, you know.

Of course, me personally, being the big man that I am, I LOVE wasting my money and I LOVE being lied to.

But that's just me.

Hi Friend

I want to repeat:

That ad is truth NO FALSE FINGER no TT , No magnet - It´s a new principle - No threads. !!!

Thanks

Since you're being so ridiculous about this, answer this simple question:

Do you put -ANYTHING- on the finger?

I don't care WHAT you're calling it so that you can say it's NOT a TT or false finger or whatever else it might NOT be called, I'm simply asking if you put ANYTHING on the finger?


If you want to know how it's done, you might consider buying it.

I liked the way it looked, so that's what I did.


He doesn't want to know how it is done; he only wants to know if he is being lied to. Not an unreasonable request, in my opinion.

Frist off, DO NOT SELL OR TRADE this until you try it for people. Like any juggling, they are impressed, amused and all smiles. For the most part, that's what we try to do with many t pieces of magic: entertain and bring smiles to people.

When I saw the the 'Chip-umentary" I thought Charlie Frye was spinning the chip on his finger as one of his "takes years to learn" juggling moves. That rascal!

http://youtu.be/3kB7bn4R1FA?t=39s

When Charlie said in his Penguin lecture that this will be a trick we could buy, I was surprised because I thought it was a skill I'd never possess. Remember John Cornelius's "coin that falls up"? What problem did 99% of us hobbyists have with it? It wasn't a gimmick and it took A LOT of practice and a real knack to get it down and we were never going to make it look like John did it ( if you did, welcome to the 1% club ).

Fry's Spinning Chip looks as good when I do it as when Charlie does it. And without practice! Now don't get on me about practice because I practice day and night. If you want to spin a chip on your finger with only practice, have fun not accomplishing it;-)

First, the ad:

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

CORRECT on all counts.

"How is it done? We can't say, but you will shocked and surprised!"

I opened the box and....was annoyed. Because everything in the box I already had. One thing I have because of playing music. I also had chips with certain properties because I bought them as key chains from the casino. What I didn't have was the smarts to create this.

I've been faux practicing this with the regular chip. Can't be done, but I just wanted to mess with the Mrs. This morning ...I could spin the chip on my finger. Of course she's such a good heart-ed person she just clapped and said "honey, you can do it". Why spoil it for her?

I learned from Gary Darwin, what seems like 100 years ago, that you practice/perform everywhere. Bank lines, Post Office, restaurants, anywhere. Well this spinning chip is perfect! People's LOVE juggling. Street performers make fortunes doing it. No one ever walks by ignoring them and thinking "that's boring, all he did was practice". They're impressed by the skill. They watch, applaud and tip.

On the DVD Charlie has a nice way of getting into this, but I just take the chip out....try to balance it and go ( your hand provides all the cover in the world ). Spin, toss it in the air and catch it with the other hand and put it away or do a Slydini-ish one "chip" routine.

They included 2 chips. So, the other one is under my lapel. I saw David Roth teach a one coin routine in a lecture many years ago and the coin vanished and was under his lapel. It was such a surprise I put a half dollar under mine.

David's routine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2VhU_F0V2E

Now I've add I added a spinning chip to that routine!

Some mentioned the price. I had all the stuff for this and I wasn't clever enough to create it, so like with most magic, the price, for me, is moot. If I hate something and won't use it, than $1 was too much. If I'll not only use it, but will do it everywhere ( no point in having magic as a hobby and not do that ) then they probably didn't charge enough. Michael Finney paid $100 for his first thumbtip ( a bartender that Mike worked with fooled the bar and Mike with the vanishing cig and Mike BEGGED him to teach it to him;-)


I LOVE this. And people I did it for today loved it. I couldn't ask for anything more from a magic trick.

Well said Zombie!
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

After I watched the dvd I have to say I am disappointed. Disappointed that I didn't think of this that is lol. I will be using a coin instead, as it will be a great end to my coin set routine. I made a coin last night and it works great!!

I LOVE this release. Charlie did it during his Penguin lecture and the room erupted. He's such a talented juggler, we all thought it was skill to make the chip spin on the finger. And that's what people think when you perform this.

For those that never could get the hang of John Cornelius's Coin That Falls Up....the poker chip makes it so easy to do;-)

A very neat trick that looks as good as it does in the demo video. Personally I prefer to load the gimmick with the chip, as opposed to having it already in place, as this feels a lot more natural and means you're free to do other effects before you perform this. If I'm honest for me a couple of factors mean it's not the easiest device to pop in your pocket and carry around and I also have to say I do think it's a little over priced.

As to the thumb tip debate, my opinion is that it isn't a thumb tip but whether it's an entirely new principal might be over selling it a bit. I haven't seen this exact method before but it is very similar to some existing devices and it's not quite as out there as the ad copy may suggest.

Overall it's a great effect with a few minor impracticalities but if you want to spin a poker chip on your finger then this is a great way to do it. There's also some very nice poker chip flourishes demonstrated on the end of the DVD which add to the overall value.

I agree with all the compliments -- a terrific effect. I have an extra set if anyone is interested.

I love Frye's Chip. It's so much fun to do when out and about.
