* 5 Killer coin effects!
* Honed to perfection over thousands of real world performances!
* Super visual
* Easy to master!
* Not one coin gimmick in sight!
* Guaranteed crowd pleasers
* Super Bonus Section


Alakazam are proud to present one of the UKfs finest magicians, a professional of almost 30 years,
a trailblazer of the corporate and close up world... Rajan with his debut DVD Ag47

This DVD covers 5 of Rajans top set working coin effects. Effects that Rajan performs on a daily basis and has done for over 20 years! Join Rajan as he teaches you every routine in great detail.

PLUCKED
A visually pleasing and fun to do bare hand production of 3 Silver Coins which seem to literarily materialise in and out of existence. Pure bubble gum for the eyes!

SIMPLIFLY
Distilled, triple filtered and so smooth! Absolute Magic!
This is possibly the clearest, purest and simplest of 3 flys.
Simplified so that anyone can do it, yet sophisticated to allow for your personality and presentation to shine through.

HS3
High Speed Three - eA fast but noisy departuref.
Like a high speed train, you hear it, you see it... but just for a second, then itfs gone,
3 silver coins drop from one hand to the other - you hear them, you see them - but just for a second... then theyfre gone!

SILVERWHERE
A diabolical, no lapping, no shell, no Han Ping Chien, no extra coins, coins thruf table with a great kicker endingc that you can do standing up.
The perfect silverware for the top table.

FRYING TIME
You will fry their brains with this brilliant Coins Across routine into the spectators hands, with the final coin appearing under their watch.
Lots of business, gags and lines that will leave them screaming! Rajan performs this in every close-up gig he does. So will you!

Very interested. Would love to here some reviews -- especially on what "easy to master" means.

Maybe a full performance of the BEST trick would be helpful, because the trailer didn't blow me away.

I don't mean to be a downer, but I didn't think too much of the vanish techniques at 1:21:

It looks exactly what it is...the coins are being retained in the right hand.

Please, a full performance to prove me wrong?

Hi Zombie,

Thanks for your post. I'm sure reviews will appear soon. Anyone interested in learning workable (real world) coin routines will love this DVD.

As I've mentioned before the aim of our trailers is not to fool magicians in to buying. It's to give an outline of effects. Sure I can work out methods for most things I see in trailers. But I'm a magician, and would expect to. What most pros look for in a trailer, is "will that sort of effect work for me"?

Best regards

Peter

Actually, most Pro's don't buy new magic. They may say nice things out of professional courtesy, but they don't change their act every 10 minutes like we hobbyists do ( and we are the backbone of the magic retail world ).

I wasn't looking to "be fooled". I was looking for something that had a "wow" factor and I didn't see it in that "designed for working pro's" trailer.

I'm with Zombie on this one...this certainly didn't have a wow factor. Also Peter Nardi, what does "Easy to Master" mean?

Link doesn't seem to work -- for me anyway. Also, Peter if possible can you give us some thought on difficulty level -- i.e. if you can do a decent FD and RV you should be fine etc.

Thanks

P.S. (FWIW ESPerfect best trick I have ever bought)

Sorry, try this http://youtu.be/qBCu7K7ya80

As with most effects practice will be required but a basic knowledge of coin work is all you need to start running with these effects.

In my view, the Simplify routine looks utterly unoriginal, and this makes me wonder why a magician would release a trick so derivative of pre-existing work by others.

It's just a basic Three Fly sequence, as explored by numerous magicians since Chris Kenner popularized the effect. It includes Geoff Latta's "French Pop" vanish, as in Chris Kenner's routine. Simplify has, however, added some big flaws, including lots of hand contact and no clean shows.

I'm sorry to be so blunt, but I'm baffled as to why this effect was thought worthy of putting out on a DVD, and I wonder if the rest of the material is of similar quality.

Cheers,
Jerry

Just going from the previews I gotta agree with jerdunn. Nothing looks special here. Not terrible, just not special.

Hmmm. I think Peter's point stands, re laymen vs magicians. If it is correct that these routines are not knuckle-busters and are all un-gaffed, then this might well be good for pros who want to learn some more, effective coin work.

My coin work is gaffed to buggery, therefore my 3-fly looks super clean, but I don't think the average spectator would notice that much. Maybe we are being too sophisticated to give this it's due? There is no doubt he is a very effective magician.

That could be called "Chimpanzee 3 Fly" because those strange hand/arm actions make it look like the motions of our closest living relatives, if they performed coin magic.

My own sources from beyond say.............

The purchase of Ag47 By Rajan is the best way to throw away $40 if you want to learn poor technique
