Really? A dozen? I'll have to dig that out and take another look - I didn't notice that many before.

Thank you.

To be more specific, of the effects classified as of the "coins across" approach, there are:

seven from Mr Tango, six Assembly/Matrix and nine Flights -- plus eight Transportations

several of the C/S and Coin Box effects can be considered "coins across" as well.

OK, I see why I missed them. IMO you are mixing grapes and kumquats! I have never considered coin box, Matrix or assembly, or C/S routines as Coins Across.

Thanks!

Just got mine today . I also fist saw it on the WPR. I'd like to get that book Mr Tango mentioned in the video too. I'm thinking there's more than one TUC for that coins across he did. But great coin. I have the half dollar one. Can't wait ot go home ( At work now) and check out the DVD that came with it and work on some stuff. I can see the similarities between this and the split coin. both are great Smile

ChristianMagician,

I'd like to know if it requires two TUCs. Tell us about the DVD when you get a chance to look at it.

I have had this problem, occasionally ($0.50 and C/S, but not with my Morgan TUC). Interestingly, letting the gaff rest for a while seems to make it harder to open and frequent use seems to make it work easier. Also, the type of m****t makes a difference. Older TUC's use square and newer ones use round. The round works easier. Depending on where you are buying the TUC from, some dealers are still selling old stock.

In addition, Mr. Tango has indicated that the strength of the m****t is somewhat adjustable by adding a layer or two of tape over the Teflon as needed (on the m****t only).

I realize this is quite a long thread now but there are a number of pearls of wisdom among the postings on previous pages which address these and other issues which are pretty helpful. You will be rewarded for taking the time to slog through.

About the question if I use more than one TUC in my coin across the answer is NO. I use only ONE gaffed coin and 3 regular coins.
Next week I'll get back to work in the new DVD

I have the quarter, half, Eisenhower and Morgan TUC and never have a "Sticking" problem

like any gaff using a "Sh**l it may need adjustment -- and the old "silk" method is great.

Individual adjustment with tape or other method may be required depending on Effect.

The more than 70 Effects in "T.U.C. Appreciation" have different requirement for "looseness" of release/split- and choice of the various Split Methods (some not on the Tango DVD's)

..................................
I have never used more than one TUC for any Effect, but have used multiple TUC's for the Switch-in/out Methods for transition to other effects. For example, if performing a Chink-a-Tango routine with a TUC as F*r** coin, you might Ditch as spectators handle the table coins -- then Load in another TUC for a later effect.

Thus, a second TUC is never required but might be useful.

Mr. Tango's famous Flurry ending uses additonal TUC's -- easy to do since the extras for a "bonded stack" for a Load.

Is the TUC appreciation document worth buying even without own a TUC. I was thinking it might give me some ideas for using the hopping halves set I've just ordered. I could then just reengineer the method

"T.U.C. Appreciation" is a 358 page book with more than 70 Effects and dozens of Sleights and Moves than can be used in any coin or small object approach. Some of the Effects could be done with an ExpSh**l or Spl**C**n. Plus lots of theory on creativity and presentation. Other Effects/Moves are for Switch-In or Out a gaffed coin that could apply to anything. While some can be done only with the TUC -- they might indeed fuel your own creativity, which is why I wrote the book.

There is a DownLoad version available that everyone's pocket book can justify. Check lulu.com

My TUC just arrived today. Wow, what a brilliant gimmick. This is the best coin gimmick ever. It is well worth the price. You can do everything you do with a shell, but only better. I don't agree with WPR that it is "examinable" but because you can flip it over like a regular coin, there is no reason for people to feel like they have to examine it in their hands anyway. It is extremely clean.

I am very, very impressed. This should be in every coin workers toolkit.
