Blackbird (Gimmick and Online Instructions) by Jeff Copeland
"They say there is nothing new under the sun, that all things are just a copy of something rehashed. Not true. BLACKBIRD is fresh, new, innovative and incredibly smart. I wish I had thought of this when I created SILVER DREAM. Welcome to the future of sleeving." -Justin MIller, Reviewer
Jeff Copeland's Blackbird is the quickest, cleanest way to hold-out and produce coins at will. It is the magician's new, ultimate, spy tool that secretly places a coin directly in your palm, on demand. The user can calmly and reliably get extra coins into play with minimal effort and expert timing. At your pace, easily unlock, deploy, and deliver. Simply put, Blackbird delivers coins on demand. It's a sexy, undercover device that gives the user confidence and power to control the production of coins. Building on classic principles of magic, Blackbird reinvents the game on how coins come into play.
Blackbird is a bold new gimmick like nothing else on the market. It empowers you with confidence of years of practiced sleight of hand when coins simply appear without reaching into a pocket, making body steals, or moving hands out of the spectator's view. Easy to operate, Blackbird is at the command of the magician as seen in the demonstration trailer.
Blackbird provides freedom. No longer is there a rush to produce coins, because your coins are secretly and securely hidden until needed. Blackbird was designed to complement the natural movements in many coin routines, so the operation is quick & easy to learn. No ditches. No pockets. With Blackbird, there is no extra prop, clip, string or "sticky stuff" to ditch after production. Blackbird delivers the magician's coins without the need for unpractical performance angles or ever putting hands out of view. It is a true empowerment to classic magic.
Resetting a coin takes 5 seconds. Because of the unique front loading feature, the magician never needs to roll up the sleeve making it ideal for reset between tables in a strolling environment.
