I think we need more information to assist here.

There are many ways of doing 3Fly or any coins across with a magnetic gaff such as the TUC.

or, do you mean that all the coins must be magnetic or shimmed to stick to a magnet?

Different techniques for all three approaches. Three magnetic coins would be difficult to handle predictably.

Since 3Fly can be done with no gaffs, what different result are you trying for by using a gaff, especially one with magnetic properties?

Maybe this should be moved to Secret Sessions.

A Café member created Phlye Coins which manages that objective. The demo video is online. If you like it say hi to Chaistain Criswell.
...to all the coins I've dropped here

A flipper and shell combo with 1 extra normal coin; joe mogar has a wonderful version with magnetic coins, and a triple split coin can be used very cleanly and beautifully

While 3 fly can be done without gimmicks- if we have the opportunity to utilize a gimmick that the audience will never know is there to make out magic cleaner, then why not.. Right?

With that being said- I’ve owned so so many 3 fly routines over the years- but have stuck with “Superfly” made by Jamie Schoolcraft as my daily driver.

It checks the “magnetic” box on your list. It’s gimmicked, but still a neat tightly packed routine. Simple.

Man dj, I have often wondered what happened to this young lady...She was quite exceptional. I loved all her work, she really was quite prodigy when she first came on the scene here, many years back now. I hope she is still doing some magic, as she was as good anyone IMHO. Smile

And iamone, you're right, 3 Fly doesn't necessitate gimmicks, Kenner's original take is still just as good as anything. And even the goal of using gaffs is to still make it appear that they are all regular coins. That said, there are many gaffed versions of the trick that are quite good, and nowadays Ive seen some TSC's 3 Flys hat are quite good, the Vegas Dream Coins is a good, affordable, very doable example. Doesn't use half dollars, but is at least
50 cents better with the dollar coins. Smile

Wound up watching this a few more times, just so magical to experience and think about. Smile Ella is quite wonderful to watch, and I have to say that not many can do coin magic any better than her...she is just elegant and amazing to see perform. If you wonder how good coin magic (or any magic) is done so effectively, just watch her and learn. Smile I wonder if she is still even doing magic? One can only hope so for magic's sake.

Dang. I remember when I first saw Ella perform way back when. I recall because I decided to give up coin magic cause I'd never be that good.

I have always been bothered by all the hand touching and repositioning of the coins.

So, I developed a method in which the hands NEVER touch at all, and the hands are shown flat and clean at every phase.

Yes, it is published. No, I will not post a video. Anyone interested can contact me eversway.com
