I have a lot of tangos coins and are generally happy with them. they work as they should without problems except my my scotch and soda. will the little coin does not lock himself into the big, the turns around and falls out. and it makes the set unusable as scotch and soda. Fortunately, I use rarely gimmick coins, so it's not a big problem for me. and I can always use the bigger as a shell ...
I think it is because it is a special (Danish) coin, as they are not normal. it is a lot less than half a dollar, so it may be why there are problems with it. (I think)

have actually just ordered another tango coin I am looking to get in the mail tomorrow ...

Tango Coins are JUST FINE when used in the hands of a skilled entertainer who really knows how to do coin magic.

I applaud Mr. Tango for being of service to the Magic Community....we need more firms like Tango Magic out there providing a modern line of great new utility coins at a fair price for the magic community and I completely support Tango Magic and sincerely hope we all do for their effort, innovation, and investment.

Good job, Tango.

(btw......this was NOT a paid enodorsement!...I just really mean what I say as a Magican who belives in supporting good guys in magic equipment enterpreneurism)

I noticed that Tango sells a magnetic quarter shell.

Does anyone know if the magnetic shell adds too much height to the shell OR should I stick with a regular expanded shell ?

If both fit a standard quarter the same.... I might as well as get the magnetic, just in case I need it.

Thoughts ?

---------------------------------

Magnetic shell or Steel shell ?

Many and most shells that are called "Magnetic" as just STEEL shells, that STICK to a magnet.
A STEEL shell does not add much, if any height.
A real "Magnetic" shell, I don't know if they make magnets that THIN.

When did that happen? A coin or shell is "shimmed" so as to be attracted to a magnet.

I would hope that the term "magnetic" means just that. Unless you mean a Chinese knockoff in which case it might mean tacky tape Smile

The TUC might be considered to have a magnetic shell but requires a thin shim Leaf.

but, our language is being corrupted all of the time, and Mr Tango's English is not perfect. Best write and check.

That's what I meant.
The SHELL is attracted . .to . . a magnet, rather than BEING "Magnetic".
A "Steel shell"/ or "steel shimmed" . . it sticks . . TO . . a magnet, rather than BEING magnetic itself.
