The Teflon tape lasts a super long time and protects the stickers. It's clean and odor free. You cannot tell which coin it has been applied to. The amount you get will outlive the coins.
I wouldn't mess around with any powders or greasy stuff.
They may work fine but will likely have other disadvantages, such as messiness, frequent applications, affect the printing on the stickers, etc.

I don't tape all of them because I find it advantageous to have a stronger pull for one pair than another in my routine.
But it's up to the user of course. Whatever does the trick so to speak.

I've been playing around with my DFSTC a lot lately, and have put it into a few shows. This is a silent version of the routine I've been performing. Thought I'd share, and would of course be happy to hear some feedback.

At the moment it's the first video in a video gallery section of my website. Hopefully I'll be adding more to this page later, so in case it's not right on top when you click the link, it's titled: "Coins From Nowhere, Once and Again
"

Nice routine short and smooth. You did a great job.
No extra funny looking moves.This is the way a coin routine should be performed.
Keep up the good work. Joe

I am seriously considering getting the Morgan version of this from Joe Mogar. Does anyone have it? Can you comment on the quality? How does this differ from Johnny Wong's Spectacular coin?

Thank you jconstantine. I have been in contact with Joe and I am going to buy this from him as soon as I get the funds together for it. I can see it in my walk around set now.

I just (two weeks ago) got a Double Sided Super Triple Coin set in Morgan dollars from Joe. It is excellent and works perfectly right out of the package.

That's good. I wonder what he's doing differently than Johnny Wong, whose coins are extremely difficult to slide apart.

Its either the magnet strength or placement of them Jim.
But they do slide apart very nicely and still hold togeather well too.

I was very curious about this. Saw it demoed recently at a convention. Looked horrible, nothing like real halves or Chinese coins. Glad I waited.

Pepka, I'm surprised a I owned the original in halves, moved to Morgans and now the Double sided and they are excellent.

If you work very close-up and work slowly with the coins, then they probably will be noticed as not being real. But working say, a 3-Fly routine at maybe four feet away, they look just ifne IMO.

I've purchased STCs from Joe Mogar and Roy Kueppers. To start off, both gaffers have excellent customer service. The quality of the coins themselves are pretty much the same, however, In terms of dollar sized STCs (the ones I got) I am leaning slightly more towards Roy's work. This is mainly because his coins are slightly more thinner when stacked together (not as thin as Johnny Wong's), but also because when his coins slide together, there isn't the little 'sweet spot' where the coins are slightly not aligned due to the magnetics. Also, in terms of the dollar sized STCs, Roy's costs $35 less. But on the other hand, for half dollar ones, Joe's costs $10 less (silver dollars and silver half dollars).

In the end, which gaffer you choose is really up to you. I have many items from Roy, and they are all excellent. I only have Joe's STC, but that is great as well!
