Topic: Put and Take aka Ante-Up Tops
Message: Posted by: jeremysweiss (Dec 9, 2007 09:40PM)
I am looking for a set of put-and-take (aka ante-up) top. I want one that will land on high/low with put/take on a clockwise spin and a second top that looks the exact same and does the same thing, but when spun in the opposite (counterclockwise)directions.....

Oh, and maybe a third matching un-gaffed top.

Any thoughts? Anyone?

Stevens Magic emporium had those awhile back, if memory serves me right.

That's where I got mine. Exactly like you described. One straight top, and two others. One wins CW and loses CCW, the other wins CCW and loses CW.

I eventually sold my set. They might work in the long run if you're patient enough, but I couldn't trust the outcome enough to work it into a magic presentation. They were very finicky on table top type as well. If you have the "wrong" surface (whatever that is, good luck figuring it out) the outcome changes drastically.

I have come upon a pretty reliable set. For magic, they are no good. For percentage play.....
