Where do you buy the following tricks-

CoinOne
CoinTwo
3 Fly

-Which one of these is the best? are they practical?

I mainly do tablework, and walk around

Homer Liwag's site is the best place to buy his videos. There are a lot of Three Fly routines. I think the best to start with is Crowded Coins by R. Paul Wilson. You can buy it at RPaulWilson.com as a PDF. I'd recommend that one, because it teaches his extra phase, is a full routine of a production, Coins Across, and vanish, and has a lot of theory.

homer says in the postcard that cointwo was never ment to be a professional work course routine. If you are a beginner or even someone who has some of the basics down only, i dont reccomend any of homers stuff. his stuff is too darn hard. but once you get it down, its good and you know some more stuff. so if you want a challenge, get coin two or coin one. they are the same pretty much in goodness. I use an impromptu version of coin one. i think coin two is a bit dry though. if you type in coin magic on youtube, you will find a clip of homer performing cointwo. and there is a great review of it.

*CoinOne is a VERY visual 4 coins across, but it's gaffed and I heard it's very difficult, but all coin magic is difficult so... :wink:
I personally prefer David Roth's Winged Silver, because it uses no gaffs and your spectators will remember exactly what they'll remember if you perform CoinOne: the magician go 4 coins from his left hand to his right hand without moving his hands.
*CoinTwo is a 3 coin flurry.
I've seen better flurries out there... with basic knowledge of coin magic you could construct your own 3 coin flurry.
If you still want a gaffed 3 coins flurry, I'd go with Troy Hooser's ExTroydinary, it's the best 3 coins flurry I've seen.
*3 Fly is 3 coins across at fingertips and at eye level (so the spectators see you, and not just your hands...)
there are a lot of different versions of the 3 fly routine, I only know Chris Kenner's 3 fly (from his book Totally Out Of Control), it uses an extra coin but no gimmicks, it's a pretty good.
Overall I think 3 Fly routines are TOO visual, to the point where it's kinda confusing to watch for laymen.
I prefer an impromptu, slow, 3 coins across that is easy to follow and leaves you with nothing to ditch (3/4 Across by Greg Wilson, Mr Clean Coins Across by Jay Sankey, Jet Coin by Fujii Akira, and more)

Hope that helped

hehe. just wondering. is this the same Dan Tong that has the Dan Tong holdout on the market?? im saving for it. it seems like something i can hold all my jumbo coins in. Im going to try a matrix with a four coin explosion in the ending. Well enjoy yourself here at penguin. as for chris' book, you technically get 2 books. out of control and totally out of control. but there are like 50 tricks in each. ive seen the book in person. its like an encyclopedia. its tall, wide, and fat (thats what she said) Im going to try to get that. maybe i will get some mnms

He's a close up magician (restaurants and things). I've only ever seen a little bit of his stuff but I love his performing persona. Like he said, he is on a few dvd's and one of the reel magic quarterly's (doing his chop cup routine). You can probably see a couple of vids on youtube.
