Obviously, Gregory Wilson's idea about the whole, "Who actually carries these props at any given time" didn't get through to my fellow reviewer, but that's ok, because perhaps it's best they aren't the one performing it. They've already stated they don't do the trick in the first place, so why would they do something similar? If you didn't really do anything with the original, why buy something that's obviously going to be similar? Especially when it SAYS it's a copper/silver routine?
Anyways, the trick is a fantastic one, and with so much going on in the bonus department, well, you really can't go wrong with this. I'd recommend it to anyone who wants a solid take anywhere do anytime routine :) It's quite well made, and I really like how different the keys look. Perfect choice too, because most keys look pretty similar to one another anyways, so genius thinking+Gregory Wilson=EPIC magic stuffs.
I bought this, and am thoroughly satisfied with it. Nuff said. Peace!

In the video with Rick Lax he mentions that this prop is expensive but that it's worth it because you will use it and ...
YOU WILL USE THIS!
I mean come on they're keys! So easy and natural to carry/bring into play! Something this easy to get into deserves to be in your reperoire.
Gregory Wilson has an awesome routine. Get the actions down and perform it.
-Don't use Greg's "because we weren't playing for money" line.
-At the end of the routine after people react say "and I'll take that back as it is my house key."
-About a minute after the routine is over and your simply conversating with your spectator say "that was crazy how I made the gold key appear in your hand!"
-Purchase key-identifier and place them on your freakeys.
To close please know - this is a worker. Get it, perform it, and become awesome.

Excellent but not cheap Report this review

I can understand how some may gripe about the price tag. However, I love this effect. The DVD has alternate effects from other pros (with the keys)- "World's Greatest Magic" style. Great touch. Great tips. Great handlings. Extra points for the assistant in the video. I don't work with coins, let alone obscure coins that I have to store somewhere odd. These keys are the great alternative to similar coin routines.
Hope there's refills of keys only for when I overuse and rub away the plating on these keys. I wouldn't pay this price twice. Though I would consider it once if I were you.
put away your CS coins--get this Report this review

i really like the copper silver trick. it's the greatest thing to get into peoples heads and get them completely confused. i don't carry centavos and English pennies as he mentions in the DVD (are either of them even in circulation?), so i've rarely been able to perform this trick.
the gimmicks, including a key fob, are high quality--he mentions in the DVD that you're not paying for a toy. this will be in my pocket all the time.
the only thing i could even say is the DVD isn't set up to sit and watch all the way through. nearly all the individual segments are only a few minutes long. one of the performance bits shows the spectator very nearly exposing the gimmick, and Greg Wilson is so smooth with audience control, no one notices.
This is a keeper!!!!! Report this review

First of all, this is very usable, and VERY well made!!!!
The sticker idea is genius....BUT I hate the three key version!!!! No good!!!
Make the keys jump,then do it in the spectators hand....switch out the gimmick ed key....DONE!!!!
This is a keeper!!!
Simply awesome! Props and DVD of great quality! Report this review

This is my first review here in PenguinMagic and I'm really excited about FREAKEY.
Besides the props, you get a high quality DVD, full of routines and different handlings of the effect. Several perfomance's styles, several contributors and in depth explanations of every single move.
As of the props, their quality is really top notch!
In regards to the g*******d KEY, you have not to be afraid it may wear out in the long run. As of the other two usual keys which is being provided, they are as well well manufactured.
You simply can't go wrong with FREAKEY in your pockets.
The only thing that I haven't confirmed yet, is the kind of the elegant key fob that comes with the whole package.
Although the the key fob shown on the DVD cover has an arc-shape (and if my memory serves me well, the same shape is shown several times in the DVD) the one I received has a vertical form and shape (it looks like a vertical rectangle).
I don't know if this is the shape of the key fob that comes with the upgrade version. Any help from any of the Penguin staff members would be much appreciated.
IMHO, I like most the one you can see on the DVD cover because it looks more fancy, less bulky and more practical in general.
Unforunately, the one that comes with the DVD looks like a steely rod! But it works perfectly and I think I can live with it!
So, FREAKEY by Greg Wilson is highly recommended!
As of the price, I agree that it could be lower. However
I do not know anything about the first edition of the effect but this second upgraded edition is just awesome.

JUst what Chad Long did with Flash Drives ( making the color changing knives relevant again ) Greg Wilson has done with Freakey.
Today, people don't recognize/relate to Kennedy halves and British pennies. BUT they know keys, because we all carry and use them.
Soem fo the greatest minds in magic worked on the routines ( Max Maven, Paul harris, John Kennedy, etc. ) so you have your pick of instant classics, or make up your own.

Gregory Wilson is one of my favorite performers. I have purchased a lot of his products so I am well aware that they are usually overpriced but I am willing to pay for his unique magic. This was the most overpriced for the least amount of quality. The gimmick key does not match the Duplicate brass key, all of the keys had very sharp burrs on them.the key fob is nice but not Worth $50 as he alleges,you can get better ones on Amazon for eight dollars. penguin said they would replace the brass key but haven't done so as of three weeks.
Great trick - and it's NOT a paddle trick. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 30th, 2014
For some reason I bought this and it sat in a drawer for a year. I ran into it again the other day, pulled it out and started to learn it.
The props are simple but absolutely perfect. And the routine is devilish. There is NO paddle move used (I think there's one in the extras, but it would be stupid, you'd see the serration on the key change) but a set of completely natural, justified moves that seem to keep all sides seen all the time, and some turnovers for if you want to be super scrupulous.
It only gets four stars, because for the price, I'd expect to get at least one ungimmicked key, but preferably one ungimmicked key of each type - so you could hand out a set of three for examination!
The blanks have to cost a dime each in quantity...
Great visual trick! So many routines. Just some minor issues. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 22nd, 2016
Very visual routine. And fun to watch. The video instruction is very good, and there are tons of routines in the DVD. So you can pick what you want and there should be something for everyone. Most of them are good. I'm not so keen on the one routine where the gimmick is deliberately exposed. The main routine you see Wilson do is very good, but I'm a little hesitant about introducing a third key into that routine for various reasons. It loses a star because 1. Way too expensive and no options available for replacement keys in case you damage or lose yours and 2. I did almost lose them, because the keychain broke and I'm not sure why. So that keychain isn't very durable.
