Hello everybody.
on a magic store they are offering a euro scotch and soda set with a magnetic lock and the normal lock (where you need the bang ring to unlock the 2 halfs). I would like to know what you recommend more.

It depends on what you're doing with it. If you're working restaurants, I'd recommend the Magnetic, due to the reset. It's silent, but it also isn't as inspectable. What you gain in reset, you lose in examinability. If you're doing this for your friends, go with the classic version.

Yes that's what I also thaught about. since I am a pupil and people in school as well as friends extremlx burning my hands since they know I am doing magic, they always want to examin it and so on. and I thought with the normal version where you need the bang ring it might be more examinable.
but I also don't know how strong the magnetic lock is I am very unsure. maybe it is strong enough that it can be given out for examination.
is it complicated to unlock it via bang ring? because if it takes only a few seconds then it might work in a restaurant too.

The Bang Ring is easy enough to use, but in restaurants you will draw attention to yourself for banging something. The Magnetic Lock is fairly strong on the Johnson coins, but still isn't completely examinable.

I just did a little searching, and can't find a magnetic S&S. I've never handled one. I've had several bang ring models over the years, and the magnetic sounds like it could be interesting.

Or would this be something to just buy a spearate Magnetic shell/magnetic insert?

They're not as nice as the classic. The insert slides around. Like I said, you gain something in reset, but lose something in examinability.

"Coin Unique" maybe what you want if you are thinking of getting a magnetic set. It uses a half dollar and a quarter. I have handed out mine numerous times and not once has anyone caught on.

What is coin unique?
how much does a bang ring costs about?

@mercury: a german extremely overpriced magic store sells s&s with magnetic locks. in general I don't buy from such stores because I find it unbelievable how they can think they can make such prices. but since this particular shop is the only one who has a euro s&s set and it is ok.
example for a rididculus price: 2 euro folding coin: 89 euro haha.

If you go to Google and search for Coin Unique, it will bring up a few sites that describe and sell the effect.

Scotch and soda is something I purchased as a teenager.
Paid about thirty bucks for it then.
Probably my favorite coin trick for over thirty years.
Still works like a charm.
