For a while now, I wanted a great key trick go put on my ring flight (or recently the pro-flite) so I some great effects taking up minimal pocket space or just a anytime/anywhere sorta thing. I've had freakey for a while now and think its great. but recently I saw Craig Petty's keymaster. looks interesting. I saw him explain this on his kidology lecture on wizard tv.

Any thoughts out there on comparison with this and freakey? Any other key-based effects out there worth noting? I've tried to work greg wilson's florida keys but can NEVER get it as smooth as him. (damm Sylvester's pitch.....)

Keymaster is a multi-phase routine using 3 keys (2 gimmicked). You're switching them out via standard coin moves, and it even contains a vanishing keyhole. All the keys can be examined at the end, and the routine is solid. They are made of very high quality brass, and will last a lifetime. For $30 it's a must have.

The other two I'd recommend are:

Flexion by Jon Allen - only $37 but does require buying keys to perform with. They cost about 19 cents each. Buy BRASS ONLY, many of the steel will snap like a twig and/or are hard to bend.

Lockpicks.com has these, which are AWESOME (I bought a thousand):

100 Ilco (IN3) (BRASS) $19.00
100 YALE (Y2) (6-Pin) (BRASS) $19.00

Killer Key by Sankey - very short opener type routine, cute principle. I'd only purchase this one after the other two listed above.

I never liked the looks of SpooKey until it was sent to me by mistake(wrong Bonus item sent) but the more I play around with it the more I like it. It is not as strong as Key Master but I have been working out the kinks to create a routine with Spookey and Keymaster. The best part of Spookey is his section on moves. He teaches a lot of different switches and aquitments that will help any key routine.

I have Flexion on the wishlist.

Thanks guys for all the feedback! I forgot about sankey's killer key. I've tried that also, but haven't tried for ages. I guess just another thing to carry instead of having everything on the key fob.

Thanks akirafist for the feedback. what do you think about freakey? I'll check out flexion

Love it, although mine's looking REALLY worn from constant use. That was a well spent $65.

It's horrible. I'll mail you mine, so I can get rid of it.
