well, chris kenner's handling (i think his handling is the ORIGINAL handling of this trick) from Out Of This World (book) is not gimmicked and its very visual, its also pretty easy.
there's also a dvd by daryl called 3 fly iii that is supposed to be really good (i dont have it though)

Well, this is by Magic Makers. The coins are not metal, they are plastic. The coins also state, on the back, that they are fake. This is a total rip off of Bob Kohler's effect. For $145, you get absolute garbage.

Daryl's Three Fly III is a wonderful DVD and teaches an awesome three fly with no gimmicks, and it is the one I use. You must supply your own coins. Get Daryl's, you'll like it.

They're not plastic coins. They're replica coins from some country in Asia. The routine, on the other hand, is a total rip off Ultimate Three Fly. He reworked one of the phases, but it's still a rip. As for Three Fly with or without gaffs, gaffs make it much more magical, as it helps eliminate the "Where's the extra coin" theory. As for the expensive sets, my personal handling of Three Fly has gotten a lot of praise from people that have seen the gaffed version and I don't use anything that's too advanced or expensive. There's no need.

I am not 100% sure what the coins are made of, but I have heard they are not metal. There is a long forum on this at the Magic Cafe. I would read it.
