Topic: Best f*****g half dollar ---Opinion needed please
Message: Posted by: Richard Lucas (Aug 7, 2006 12:50AM)
I recently bought one of the new style f*****g halves where the edges are untouched, but now the c**s are showing. I wish they had used 2 bands instead of 1 or I had a way of tightening.

In any case who makes the best?

I am not referring to the coin that is spelled using 2 p's. This coin is used for Coin to Bottle, I use an old Coke bottle, newer versions use a corked bottle, etc. Tango makes the newer coin that I have, but I am wondering if there is source for higher quality. Of course any coins of this style will begin to show their "secret" with use because of the edges rubbing against each other causing them (the edges) to curl over thus revealing the j***ts.

Schoolcraft is working on this but it is not ready at present.

Should I just go with the Tango coin?

I keep forgetting what the F*****g Half stands for after an older conversation we had here. It seems a little profane at first. I have one Tango Coin. It's a Flipper and is great quality. I'd recommend them to others, but I do know that Johnson's coins, while a little more expensive, are guaranteed for life, which is a big advantage to other companies. Really, depending on what you're using it for, I don't think the slight difference in quality is that important. In Ammar's Coin in Bottle routine, they never see the gaff, so even a worn down coin would work perfectly.

I use a johnson's and have never had a problem with either Coin in the Bottle or David Roth's Coins through the table routines.
Handling it during the routine is of utmost imortance ...I used to use a sasco and never got caught with it. I bought the johnson's as a treat to myself not because the sasco had worn out or anything like that.

A F***ing coin is just a means to an end ...why worry so much about it?? You must have a tough audience.

Our internal system of f*****g coin is of our invention. We do not use the standard gimmick we use e****** t***** much more resistant.

Hello Marcelo! Welcome to the Café! What if the thread wears out or breaks? Is there a way to fix it? I was always unsure for purchasing these coins because of this reason, but they look so good :D
And are these coins 2 or 3 f***ed?

If you have patience you will change the elastic. I'ts very important when the elastic cut you must to get the rest slowly with a wire, to be able to get to take out all the elastic. The problem happen when a rest of elastic is inside the coin.
