Yo yo yo whats up?
I've been trying to think of an "exciting" way of showing that the 3rd coin (out of 4) has traveled from one hand to the other, because I think it's not as exciting as the other coins (1st coin- they see an empty hand and a second later it has a coin, 2nd coin- they hear the coin go, 3rd- nothing special, 4th- they see the last coin disappear from the hand and join the other 3), but I can't think of anything...
Anyone has any ideas?

Do a knuckle roll with it. That's what I do, anyway.

If you feel the third coin isn't strong, just cut it out and do the routine with 3.

I agree. Plus, It isn't much of a 3 fly if it uses 4 coins. Are you using any gaffs or extras? Play to whatever you are using. I have a video on youtube of my 3 fly where the last coin is a visual coin across.

Where did you get the idea that I'm talking about a 3 fly routine?
I specifically said Coins Across :roll:
I hate 3 fly routines, I think they're too visual, the specs can't focus on both hands at the same time and "digest" what they just saw

I too was wondering why a 3 fly was brought up. I also agree with you on that Daniel... most of them anyway.

Oh lol. When you wrote 3rd coin it through me off lol. Chris Kanner's unicoin is pretty cool. I see where you are coming from though. 3 fly IS a very strange effect. The spectator's often don't get to focus on one place. That is one of the reasons I never use duplicate coins. Without the dup, you often need to do some kind of 2 beat action which gives the spectators enouhg time to either see or hear the first coin and then see or hear the first coin arrive.
