There is so much out there now that was either underground for years or new arrivals, I am not sure what else could be possible. Other than same gaffs different names or different coins. I think (or guess) the next new coin gaff will also be magnetic - that seems to be the recent trend.

Now what I would like to see ( HINT - HINT MR. TANGO ) is a "Super T.U.C." Bigger (exp) S***l, thinner ma****s and 2 inserts. Basically a T.U.C. Inside an exp s***l with a reversed (polar) ma***t in an exp s***l so they all fit together. I see it working as a T.U.C. Triple Threat so to speak. If you are willing to make it, I will be happy to test it for you and come up with some routines for it. :)

Maybe only make it in Morgan, Ike, Walker and clad Kennedy. At first anyway.

Until then I will work on my slight of hand skills with coins and toss a gaff or 10 into the mix for now. I notice we all seem to procrastinate when it comes to new routines, heck, I have expensive gaffs I haven't even used yet or even played around with a routine for them. Just haven't got around to it. Too busy posting and watching Law and Order (an addiction of mine) to watch the many DVD's I need to watch and do more reading. I have nothing but time being disabled but I keep telling myself... I will tomorrow. I have got rid of just about all my magic except cards and coins so I can streamline a little better.

Anyway, Happy and Prosperous New Year to all and ( I look forward to the new gaff Mr Tango :) )

Not to pick on Todd who is echoing a popular thought ...

Fresh - exciting ??? Something deep inside asks why?

The TUC revitalized my interest in coin effects because it allowed my to toss it from hand to hand and allowed for moves I could no longer perform using sleights (crippled hands). In less than 6 months I created more than 40 new effects using this gaff and encouraged a few others to contribute by offering them a free TUC -- with the result of "TUC Appreciation." I have a dozen more effects unpublished ad am creating more for use of the Shim-Slip. The only reason I haven't created more is the lack of feedback on the existing effects -- and a simple mystery ...

Where are all of the other effects created by others using this gaff? Where are the books of new effects using the other popular new gaffs of the last several years (I can't afford them or I would create some there also)

I published that book to serve as an inspiration to others -- to fuel their own creativity. I cannot believe we have more than scratched the surface of possible effects using the existing gaffs.

Why do we need a new gaff? Why do your kids need a new cell phone? Why aren't 40 pairs of shoes enough?

There are answers -- but they have nothing to do with magic!

I think its just we are always looking for something
new fresh revitalizing.even if the old isn't really old.
but your absoulty right funsway.a lot of people are always
looking for that perfect effect-galf and probaley will never
find it.but it is fun looking and dreaming of it.

Some of these people seem to want something so self working, they may has well hire a magician to do it for them. :)
