If you have any of Reed McClintock's knucklebusters series of books then you know how challenging
some of his material can be. This DVD is no exception. If you aren't an advanced coin magician then
pass this up. If you are though then you should definitely put this in your wish list. I can't do
the 13 coin matrix. It is super hard! I do perform international 3 fly though and it is an excellent
routine. Watching Reed perform these routines is also a treat and helps you get a feel for the

I bought this DVD from a blizzard deal, selling the DVD at 10 dollars. If you are buying it from
this deal, it is more then worth the purchase.
You will find four tricks, two visual coins
across routines (3 fly), one multi coin production/matrix, and a take on a Daryl trick, called knee
neck and elbow.
13 coin matrix- A fabulous looking, but difficult multi coin production
vanish and matrix sequence ending with a jumbo coin production. You must be able to classic palm
multiple coins. It will take practice, but it is well worth it.
knee, neck, elbow- I did
not enjoy this trick. The presentation is a little weird and it is not that powerful.
Scream Fly- A nice touch on three fly. I do not perform this one, but it was nice to hear Reed's
theory behind the effect.
International three fly- Three fly, but with coins of different
appearance (copper silver brass, pennie kennedy and chinese). I perform this and the effect is very
open to a creative presentation.
Some Knucklebusting going on, overall a good purchase,
but a little bit more bang for buck would be nice

The audio is terrible at times, which, of course hinders the explanation, but the effects are
dynamite and well worth the time taken to learn the sleights and perfect a smooth performance. Reed
McClintic is a capable teacher, repeating
moves to help us learn his wondrous routines.
