I am sorry I am confused here. So Mr JT have you published any of your material ? How come some magicians and a lot of members in the Café make reference to your ideas or creations ? Are you showing it like in lectures or conventions or it is just known by word ?


This is one of those questions that is better sent as a PM instead of side tracking a thread on Lee's Three Stylin product. Will PM in a bit.

Sorry everyone for getting off topic earlier.

Anyway, I think that three stylin is a great routine and should be tried on a lay audience before deciding that it doesn't work. As I said earlier the chips offer some great presentation options.

Black and white T.V. still delivers the picture, but wouldn't you rather watch it with color?

Can we get some reports of how this routine goes over for lay audiences?

Magic w/HART,

Hey, sorry if some of my earlier comments came across as abrasive. I have kind of a sarcastic sense of humor and sometimes have difficulty suppressing it.

The reality of the situation is probably somewhere between our two arguments. The effect will probably slay some people, while others will notice the immobility of the other two chips. I personally think the effect works better with coins, but that's just me.

I think the routine would be better performed with an apple, pear, and orange. Just kidding. LOL, Smile. Cheers,

I should mention that I only perform this at the restaurants/parties for larger groups that are seated at the long tables. I think that this routine(or any 3 fly routine) is good for the longer tables because then EVERYONE can see what is going on. It is not "crotch magic". The other reason I perform it only for the long tables is that in the two restaurants that I work the larger tables are separate from the smaller tables. If I did it at the smaller tables I would have some angles to worry about. Three stylin does not look as magical from the back.*lol*

I use it as an opener because it quickly establishes me as someone worth watching(and I don't believe in opening with cards). I think it is also important to point out that the chips are bigger than Morgans. That and the fact that they are colored makes it very easy for all to see. On that same note, chips(especially the ones Lee provides w/ the routine)are very smooth and move like butter. Morgans, unless prepared well, do not.

This routine plays very well for lay people. I actually had to start letting people examine the chips before and after because they would not believe that they were real!

When you read Three stylin you can tell that Lee has really thought this thing through. He does not only tell you how, he tells you why. His blocking and motivation alone are worth the price of admission. Hope this helps...

Would this effect work for someone with small hands. I have trouble practicing with regular dollars and making it look good because of my small hands. I usually just use half dollars, but I would like to buy three stylin if it would work for me.

I think this routine can work for everyone, the hardest move is a fingerpalm, and even with small hands a fingerpalm should be easy enough.

Jon, that should be etched in stone somewhere in the Magic Castle. We can debate every handling of every effect ever created, but it all comes down to what you said.

Thanks!!

Just curious... is Three Stylin' a SoH only effect using non-gimmicked poker chips? Or are there gimmicked chips involved?

I found it to be surprisingly well thought out. Some may be put off by the red chip factor, but when you actually look at the routine, and work it well and to your own style, it will amaze you how this is actually very cleverly worked around. In the end the illusion truely is the three chips flying one at a time, which is exactly what it should be.
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

I won't forget you Robert.

Lee Asher always has great ideas about timing and misdirection, this is another one of those routines.

I just recieved this the other night and after reading through this booklet, and working through it with chips in hand, I have a couple of thoughts:

1) It always impresses me when one takes the time to list the credits in a Works Cited list in the back. Helpful to see it in that list form, plus it re-enforces what Lee states, "He stands on the shoulders of Giants."

2) The structure of the routine is well thought out. Every chip moves from one hand to the other. Much like Mike Close's Torn and Restored Card, the routining is what makes this effect what it ends up being.

Folks, yes this is a late post -- this is a rockin' effect.
Yes, only the red chip flys, however, this is never called out in
the routine and is never noticed due to the effect's solid construction.
This is a great opener -- about 60 seconds of quick eye-candy.
Best of all, it is neither a card trick nor a coin trick.
