Topic: Daytona Magic's coin sets

Who makes Daytona Magic's coin sets? My local magic shop only stocks Daytona coin sets. I've asked him if he can get me a C/S/B set but I guess, Daytona is my only choice (I have a gift certificate from my local magic shop). How is the quality of their coin sets?

I believe this is the set. Unfortunately, I do not know how good or bad it is.

By the looks of it I think its not very good. Just my idea.

Daytona gets their coins from Sasco. They put the Daytona label on it but it is Sasco. Sasco quality is ok but not as good as Tango or Jonhson. If you want a CSB get Johnson.

Thanks for the clarification on the manufacturer. They don't even put a Daytona label on them. All of the coin sets I've seen have a generic packaging insert with a sticker that tells you what the effect is - no manufacturuer information.

I did buy a couple Tango coins this month but I can't buy a Tango or Johnson because I need to use up a gift certificate from my local brick and mortar shop. Whatever my local shop sells is all that I can get at the moment.

Support your local magic shop. They are dropping like flies. Internet is putting them out of business. Nothing like going to a magic shop and hanging out with other Magicians and learning new magic. We have only 1 Magic Shop in Tampa and I hang out there every Saturday. Lots of Magicians come in and share their stuff.

Hope you find something good from yours.

Cheers

This is so Sad but true. I have friend in peobody mass that owns Dimonds magic shop and he's lucky enough to have a large internet store as well as his shop. But most small shops are doing just as you say DROPPING LIKE FLIES. And this economy don't help at all. Best of luck with the shop TC. Say hi to the guys for me. Hopefully I will get down your way after the holidays. Cheers Pal.

Daytona Magic is a brick and mortar shop, I went there when I was working at a local motorcycle shop, nice shop.

I have the S/C transpo and it looks great.

I agree with TC on this. I have bought most of my magic stuff from the only magic shop I know of in Arizona. I don't hang out there because I've never seen anyone around. I'm afraid for his shop. I wish there was an easier way to support the little guys, but only the loyal customers save them.

Anyway, I would support your local magic shop as much as possible. If he doesn't or can't get what you want, then look online. I wonder why they can't order in Johnson C/S/B?

[/quote] I beg to differ. They make their own coins on Connie Hayden's old equipment that they procured years ago. Connie Hayden was one of the first to make gaffed coins way back in the day.

I have a Gin & Tonic coin set from Daytona Magic (their brand) and it is of good quality. When the gaff is nested you can't tell the difference between the gaff and the real two pence because the tolerance is tight...

Cardamagically,
