Okay here is the first look at my modified handling of Three Stylin. It's still a work in progress, I need to slow down the second coin jump and work my patter a bit more to help "pace" the routine better. You should get the idea.http://vimeo.com/8453545
You should get the idea. I talked to Lee Asher about it and he gave me a few pieces of advice and passed on a hot tip that Allen Ackerman thought up. His opinion is that the Gimmick just isn't necessary for the laity. After working with it I tend to agree. It complicates the handling enough that you really need to weight the benefits vs the extra work required to get it to work smoothly. When I am out in public I still fall back on the basic routine.
I enjoyed that alot!
I was sucked into the patter and the motivation behind the effect. You seem to already know what to work on, so that's not as important to restate. I also do my coin and 3fly effects with poker chips more often now. Keep working on it, it has a ton of potential.
Also, if you don't mind, I would love use your line as to why your are using chips, as it seemed perfect.
All the best,
