I am still stunned by my T.U.C. "Ike". It goes with me everywhere in a little coin purse with 4 stock "Ikes". It's a marvelous coin-gaff. I feel very Magical using it. I can do 4 effects with it now, perfectly, so I am always ready for a little impromptu coin Magic. It works quite well with a pair of Trabucco holdouts too, after a very small adjustment to the hold-outs (something had to be reversed, but you know what that is if you have a Trabucco set).

Thank you Mr. Tango

Thanks, thanks and more thanks for your words.

Doris, great coincidence, I'm trying a new effect with TUC Morgan and the Invisible Hand of Vernet, it's about a signed coin that disappear and appear inside a fruit.

By the way, I will be giving my lecture of TUC in Mexico November 20 at El Toque Mágico de Dino, in Miami in the IBM ring November 24, in Blackpool in February 20 and Madrid February 23,24,25 and 26.

Bye

Mr. Tango,

I use a Trabucco Hold-out for your T.U.C. coins. It's static, in that it doesn't move. All it requires is a shirt, or a vest, or a jacket. It is a devastating hold-out and has no moving parts at all. I can use it/them wearing just a t-shirt for a top.

I am usually always rigged up with a Vernet Invisible-Hand when I perform, but I use it for other things than coins, mostly.

The only place you can get a set of Trabucco hold outs is from Elmwood Magic, USA. They aren't cheap, but what they can do is priceless!

PM me if you need more information.

I sure would love to see your lectures. Will you be making your lecture notes available? I would really love to buy a set if you do.

I got the Invisible Hand of vernet, it includes an accessory with a magnet. I used this accessory with an Ike TUC and it works perfectly. I can load one TUC and two more coins in this way.

Hi all, I am new to the magic Café and hope I have posted this message in the right place! All I would like to know is what is the difference between T.u.c copper/silver and the normal T.u.c coin? I have bought Tango coins before and have always been impressed with the quality, so no questions needed there! I hope someone can help as I don't know which is best to buy. Thanks, Markythewiz.

The TUC Silver allows from 1 silver coins to end as 2 silver coins, you can do 3 fly, matrix and some other routines where 1 silver become 2 and 2 become 1.

The TUC Copper/Silver, allows from 1 Silver coin to show as 1 Silver and 1 Copper, or 2 silvers (more limited that the above option). The TUC C/S is very useful for transpositions, spellbounds and things like that.

I have both in half dollar size. If you can only buy one, I think the Silver option is the most versatile.

The Trabuccos will hold at least 4-5 coins each easily (individually accessible) and the set is 2 of these hold-outs, for a total of 8 steel or magnet gaffed coins held out. The Invisible hand makes for a great finisher, as it can empty your hand of the last coin(s) in a routine without your having to travel that hand at all. Just activate the Vernet, make a flourish of turning your hand over while doing it and the coin disappears right in front of a spectator's eyes. Then roll your sleeves up. For a lot of switching in and out, the Trabuccos shine, as that is their job. I keep copper coins on one side of me and silver on the other, ready and waiting in a pair of Trabucco hold-outs. That works good for me. Your needs may differ. There's so many wonderful hold-outs available now. Combine them with TopIts and people start to wonder if you're not in league with Satan after all...... ):o)>

Thanks Pablo. That clears things up in my mind. I will take your advice and go for the silver/silver version. Thanks again, all the best, Mark.

Mr. Tango, I love my T.U.C. half and I am ordering a TUC Silver/Copper. Are you considering making a Copper TUC with a Silver insert?

Just Received the Eisenhower Dollar Coin.
Very-very nice. It does replace the sh*** as well as the Fl****r coin.
It will take a little practice to get used to, but once you understand
the mechanics it's a dream to work with.

Will probably go for the Kennedy Half and another Ike.
Once you find a good thing it's always a good idea to have a back-up.
Well Done!!

I would like to say that the TUC has been a great seller in our online store and our local location.

Those that have gotten it, have come back with some really great routines with it.

We have yet to see any with a quality issue - Tango is getting much better at making sure you get top notch props.

I whole-heartedly suggest anyone with a love for coins to snag one of these!

I have both the Half Dollar & Eisenhower Dollar TUC. I love them both! I added a shim expanded shell to the half dollar TUC. I modified the Shell slightly so that it works like 2 TUC in one. I get 3 coins out of 1 for this and you can toss up the coin as well, kind of like a T/T.

Ahhh they are back in stock now. They were sold out for a week till we got more in. Both halves and dollars are in stock now.

I find the half dollar to be my favorite - nice weight, size, and feel.

I'll have to say I was hesitant to by a Tango coin due to all the quality issues that were posted a while ago. There haven't been many lately, so I took the plunge for a silver TUC. Gotta say the quality is very good. I am concerned about the issue sharpace mentions, but agree with lithyem about management.

As someone who hasn't purchased anything in about 10 years, I'm really impressed with the personal involvement of manufacturers like Mr. Tango and even the dealers here on these forums. It used to be that you would buy a mysterious bag and took your chances.
Good to see that customer service has greatly improved. Bravo.

Well I must admit I thought I had an idea about the workings of the TUC and I was a little worried that people may see what was happening or even that if may not work properly and I must say that it's not at all what I thought it was. It's really something new indeed and which works extremely well. I even ordered a second one. Smile

Just a few words though concerning people who said that it would replace their flipper or slippery sam... well I kind of agree for the slippery sam but certainly not for the flipper. TUC is great but Tango's flipper is more visual for vanishes like coins through table routines.

Well done in any case!

Hello friends,

Here a new important TIP TUC

I coming back of my lectures in Mexico and Miami.
In Miami, I gave my lecture in Fantasio's house and he discovered a new very important tip for TUC.
Fantasio had problems to open the coin, so he added a small square of masking tape in the center of the magnet and the coin opened so much better.
Of course the size of the tape must be smaller that the magnet.
Thank you very much my friend Fantasio, your magic continues making miracles.

Thanks to everybody for your reviews, I will try to give all the lectures as I can next year about TUC so if somebody want to book me please let me know.

Bye.

When it doesn't matter to the effect, I have found that placing the Leaf in backwards makes it easier to open quckly, i.e. the Tail slides easier than the Heads and sits a bit higher.
