Topic: NFW and No Joke or ACE?
Message: Posted by: magicwiia (Apr 21, 2019 11:50AM)
I'm trying to decide which to get....NFW which also comes with No Joke or ACE by Richard Sanders. I've read that some think the quality of the gaff in ACE is better.

For those who have worked with all three, which would you suggest I get?

Im not sure of the quality issue you had mentioned but I would bet 90% of the guys are going to say hands down, NFW, including me. 😮😀

This is what I was alluding to. mention is also made that you can get replacement gaffs at a lower price with ACE.

Also, in the thread above it is mentioned that No Joke gets to the same ending in a more direct manner than NFW. That said, they come together when bought at Penguin so one can decide which presentation they prefer.

I just ordered both NFW/No Joke and ACE. When they arrive I'll go through them thoroughly and give my thoughts about them.

There is a video you can access with both NFW/No Joke and with ACE. I prefer the routines, methods, and performances show in ACE better.

In the end, it's the effect I'm looking for and, with me, ACE delivers it better. Having said that your mileage my vary.
