FreaKey (DVD And Props) Review

At this point, FreaKey is sort of old news. It has been on the market for a number of years, it's not being actively advertised, and you may have to search for a copy if you really want one. Or, as happened to me, you might luck upon one that's much less expensive than its $95 list price.

FreaKey pretty much exceeded my expectations in every way. The quality of the props and gimmick is impressive, and it's easy to understand why Wilson opens the DVD with a tour of how they're manufactured. The combination of seeing the process and feeling the quality in your own hands justifies the price. Yes, even full price.

Especially when you factor in the DVD. It's nicely produced, easy to watch, and includes many tips and alternative routines. It's the latter that really sold me on this product. I'm not a big fan of Wilson's monte-like "confuse and prove the audience wrong" framework for this, but the routines cooked up (and fully explained by Wilson) by Max Maven, Michael Weber, and Paul Harris offer much more appealing approaches.

I'm not going to try to sell you on the notion that a copper-silver routine makes more sense with keys than it does with coins. This either appeals to you, or it doesn't. My message here is that you shouldn't be put off by the high price tag. FreaKey is a quality product.
