Thanks Mark for your feedback on my routine I appreciate it! It is a go to routine now for me and have had an opportunity to show it frequently.

Recently I acquired one of Jake's beautiful little brass billet switch boxes. I like that the look is similar to the brass casket and will be using it at times for a kicker ending to my "Press the Flesh" routine. The billet switch box is seen on the right in the photo below beside my "Press the Flesh" props.

I or the spectator lifts the lid off the box and sees a folded prediction inside. I tell the spectator that I have predicted what the spectator will do the third time we try the exercise. We do the first two phases of my routine and I will point to the billet box periodically and say "remember I already know what your are going to do the third time". Finally after the the third phase the billet box is opened and the spectator unfolds and reads your prediction which of course is correct! Smile

Cheers!

The Press The Flesh routine is the same as the one that was offered for free yesterday. Hopefully I can get a refund

I got my kit. Looks nice but was it supposed to come with instructions or a video link? I haven’t read any of this thread. I got bored one night and ordered because everyone here seems to like it. So I’m not really sure what I bought.

I got mine today also - doesn’t work as described in John's "Press the Flesh" write-up, unfortunately.

Jim,
you didn't even give me any time to check into this, you posted here first then a 1/2 hour later sent me an email which I just read.
I"m looking into this right now. But please before you go posting that something doesn't work, give me a chance to address it.

I immediately started working on this issue this morning. A very simple solution. In the top of the suitcase is a pocket for business cards or credit cards. I placed 4 business cards in the
pouch in the lid and lo and behold the case no longer is free to move inside the suitcase.

In my routine I suggest a Business card kicker so placing a few cards in the pocket is a good idea...Smile

Jim if you have any questions about the routine feel free to PM me.

Thanks for emailing me the instructions Jake.

I fiddled with it and ultimately figured it out on my own. Very clever. Worked perfectly with the 1968 half that came with it. I also tried with two Kreiss halves and three regular halves and all seemed to work great. Definitely not strong enough to be an opener or closer but certainly a good middle routine. Not sure I'll ever use it because I'm so in love with Flux (which also has heads/tails capability) and I have a super strong routine with it. That said, this is certainly a quality product at a great price point.

Hi emyers99 I also use Sixth Sense 3 (predecessor to Flux) and before 2.5 for many years. Still do use it often with a different routine. I have found I am getting a stronger reaction on the heads and tails feature with the routine I put together for the casket than with just the coin alone in the hand. Not sure why to be honest, part I guess it is the premise I am using and the perceived impossibility when adding additional layers to shield the coin.

Cheers,

John

I did the Talbot routine for a few friends who came by and with the business cards in place the effect worked just like it should and floored them.
I found 4 business cards work the best.

For my little briefcase, I added an extra layer of black velvet to the inside bottom by purchasing some self-adhesive black velvet from Amazon and cutting a piece to shape (including rounding the corners). Then I added a little square of black velvet to the underside of the clear plastic snap case (adding the square to the area that is sort of recessed on the bottom). Those two additions keep the clear plastic snap case firmly anchored inside the little briefcase.

My Coin Light from SEO is being delivered today or tomorrow and I look forward to adding that to the routine. Now I'll be rooting for the last step of the routine to end with the spectator placing the coin tails up. Smile
