Just received my latest gaff from Tango, a Copper Silver Mexican Transposition and the quality is great.

I have many Tango products and all work very well.
Today I bought TUC and I'm impressed, this is THE GAFFED COIN, is a brilliant idea. The DVD is really good with very clear explanations. Some effects are classic and some others new, and many of the classic effects have excellent improvements as the Matrix Reverse and the coins to glass.

I just got one and a few other items from Tango too. I'll review the rattle in a day or so. I really, really like it! I've already rigged mine to work with short-sleeve shirts (or T-Shirts for you guys).

I have a tango folding coin, the coin is very shiny and at certain angles I can see the seams very easily, this is my first folding coin, and was just wondering if the seams will become less noticible as the coin becomes less shiny?

The only Tango product I have is the TUC and I am quite pleased with it. As arrived it needed a bit of adjustment but Mr. Tango responded right away with the adjustment instructions when I emailed him.

As for the folding coin, I assume its a profile cut? I don't have a Tango but I have one I bought years ago and its pretty much invisible. Keep in mind that your audiance is NOT going to be handling it and staring closely at it for seams. They have no reason to look for that unless they already know how it works or you are putting WAY too much heat on the coin. After it comes back out of the bottle you should switch it right away anyway so you can hand it back out for examination.
It is always darkest just before you are eaten by a grue.

Thanks,

It isn't a prpfile cut, even though they will never get a good look at it I would like to have the seams as invisible as possible, do you know if un-shining the coin will help conceal the seams?

I think that there isn't a problem. The people never can't see the cut if you use the coin well.

I think a profile cut is the best. If you do the coin bite, IMHO it is the only way to go.
I have two older Johnson sets, so I am able to bite the piece off, then take the piece out of my mouth, put it back into my mouth, and spit it back onto the coin. I wouldn't consider doing this with a set that wasn't a profile cut.

I have had no problems at all or issues with Tango. I personally (my opinion) find many of their products better than Johnson. You obviously can't compare them with Lassen or Schoolcraft, but I believe most of their products work well for working magicians.
The magic is not in our sleights and illusions, but instead in our ability to bring love and joy.

Maybe someone could give me some advice. I have a Tango Kennedy Flipper and I am having trouble getting any amount of use out of it before I have to re-assemble the whole thing. When I use Super-glue I thing it eats away at the r***** ***d . So I tried double stick tape but apparently it is not holding well enough to keep the r****** ***d from slipping off.

That is a very generous offer Mr. Tango. Thank you. I am not that familiar with this coin (at least not yet) There may not be anything wrong with the coin other than operator error.

Mr Tango,

I like your coins, and I like the way you do business.
I love TUC!
After much soul searching about a signature, I decided not to have one.

How are the Tango coins? I never really did much in the way of coin magic however, I was looking at getting a few gimmicks like an expanded shell, flipper, and a shim. I am stuck between johnson coins and tango. Thoughts? The good, the bad, and the ugly... what do people think?

Johnson coins are excellent, but lately I have been buying a lot of Tango coins. I think their quality is now on a par with Johnson and the price is right. I have not been disappointed by any of the Tango gaffed coins.

I just picked up an old Tango Vanishing Quarter Pull. Since it can vanish other coins as well it will greatly expand my use of "borrowed coins" -- including swapping out my Quarter TUC.

The key to all of Mr. Tango's special coins is versatility and apparent simplicity.

I have purchased several coins from Tango.... All special order'64 Kennedy Halves.... two hooked halves, a magnetic copper/silver set, a steel core half, a magnetic half, a standard copper/silver set, one double faced, one double tails, an internal folder, two copper/silver coins and a TUC. All are great coins.....and the prices were good!

I found Mr. Insua..aka. "Mr. Tango" to be a pleasure to do business with... he is very responsive and very customer service oriented! He responds promptly to your communications and wants you to be satisfied with your purchase(s).... I am!

I just received my Tango C/S silver line coin and I have a coin that slipped when the coins were glued, there are 2 edges that stick out from how the coins slipped, it has sharp edges. about 1/16 inch.
So far my wife and friend both said they can see the error when I'm showing the coin in my palm.

Mr Tango I contacted the seller and they said "No Returns at all" can you help to get this coin fixed or replace it with a coin that is correctly glued and centered? Tahnk You.
