Hey Steve,
I agree with Eric, try to stay within your budget, work with the coins you are comfortable with...once your gigs pay enough to upgrade then go for either the Schoolcraft or Lassen stuff....just remember you get what you pay for..
hope that helps..

Recently bought my first Schoolcraft flipper half, and finally realized I've been wasting my money on other products until now.

Just been in the other direction: I bought the Tango pro flipper, and although it's absolutely fine and will do the job, it's made me appreciate that the Schoolcraft is still a different league.

It's hard to spin a story around a modern quarter but very easy to spin a story around a walking liberty half dollar. Be creative...do a little research...entertain!

I have to disagree I have several effects that use quarters in fact almost all of them do and I have no troubles spinning a story around what I'm doing.

For me I like to do something that appears to be impromptu. I can borrow four quarters anywhere I can draw a crowed and do several effects with them. I am switching in and out several gaffs but the audience doesn't know that and in the end I give them their quarters back and it is that much more magical.

Maybe its because I only perform with things that seems normal. I would never pull out a silk or a spongeball, but I don't see anything wrong with doing so either. Every performer has his own style and if that style is quarters I say go forth and entertain someone.

BTW I think a flipper is a good gaff to have in your arsenal and for your first one I would go with one that is different on each side.
