I wouldn't say the TUC is my favorite -- I just started creating new effects using it and can't stop.

My hidden favorite is the Birch Stack -- something I discovered by accident (1934) and am now modernizing for new eBook.

Basically an intertwined use of a exp [ and a Hooked Coin - now a magnetic one. No, the Hooker is never in the [ -- it is matter of controlled timing
that allows for some unique effects and amazing old ones.

I know that the TUC coin helps you instantly produce a second coin from the original coin, but is the Quarter-Penny where you can produce a penny instantly from a quarter? (looks like scotch and soda?) Thanks...

Torn between two Lassen sets that I got last year. The UWC set is versatile and a work of art. But I also love the Cerebus set. His combo sets are amazing.

I have three Johnson Exp ['s. A Quarter, a Kennedy Half Dollar, and an Ike Dollar. Absolutely the best coin gaffs I have! I also have two C/S coins in Kennedy Half/English Penny.

I also have a unique coin. A quarter version of FUSION, by Dr. Michael Rubinstein. I love it! Very, very unusual...

My favourite gaffed coin still has to be my folding coin, or maybe I should say coins - as I have them in most sizes of U.K. Currency; ready to switch in for any value of borrowed coin handed to me.

Whilst I adore coin magic in most of it's forms (although I still dislike the generally confusing plot of 3Fly) there isn't a coin trick that I have EVER performed that registers so well with laymen as 'Coin in Bottle'.

To my mind, passing a borrowed coin into a borrowed glass bottle held by a spectator, then just as easily taking it out again (a point most magicians overlook, so they lose a major part of the plot in my view) is as close to REAL magic as you can possibly get. Add in some sleeving and you've got an ultra-clean effect that sits up there in the miracle class. Smile

Hey, guys! A very generous and kind Café member here, sent me his Kennedy Half Dollar FUSION coin! The DVD came with it. After watching it, I realized I had come up with my own handling back when I got my quarter version. Using the Half, I use MB's "Crimp Switch", and it works great! One of the best kept secrets in gaffed coins! Smile

I love my sh*%l. Like Cnd Andrew said - Such a versitile thing. £2 version. I am learning a beautiful coins across routine from Kieron Johnson. He does this SO elegantly... I however have a way to go yet and must stop spending the regular £2 coins!

Coin Unique, £1 and penny version. Use this for coin to mouth sucked thru arm which I learned from the mighty Tokyo, from Lombok Indonesia.

I use a split £2 for a story about the banks and (of course) for bag4life. The coin is not the best match as the writing on the side does not join together perfectly but thankfully I have never been called on it. I always keep a regular close by to switch out with when the heat is on the bag...

All the best,

Colin

I get the most use out of my X-sh*l. But I just started playing around with the TUC, and it's amazing some of the effects you can come up with. Especially using both in tandem.

Bowers I have a T.U.C in a Half Dollar that I really would like to get into using but always revert to my s***l as I just know the handling inside out and very confident with it, I really want to try something new and I can see the impact and possibilitys this T.U.C coin could have! Do you have Mr Tango's new T.U.C DVD ?

get "T.U.C. Appreciation" with more than 60 effects -- the key Tango ones plus many not on his DVD and some contributed by notable magicians. This was written to inspire magicians like yourself to create your own effects and modifications, so there is philosophy, history and theory as well. Available in many formats from LuLu.com

Sponge King I do have the new dvd.
It has quite a few routiens on it.
and Mr Tango shows how he handles
and opens the Tuc for himself.
It is worth the twenty four dollars.
