My flipper coin was designed for a coin thru table routine. Sasco makes it. It is a standard band activated flipper. It' difference lies in the fact that it is a double headed coin. When it appears to be two coins, they are each heads up on the table. Sasco is the only place to get one.

I'd say the "advantage" of showing both coins heads up is out-weighed by having to deal with a double-headed coin the rest of the time!

I agree with rutabaga, with the heads/tails flipper the coin can pass as a normal coin much easier...

amen, it will pass under expection. But a head/head or a tails/tails will also have some unique abilities that will allow more impressive routines that use a double facer or a double tails

ANY flipper can be a gravity flipper. You just need the right tension for the band.
I own a Johnson, and a couple Schoolcrafts... Kennedy half, and quarter.
The Johnson is great for practise. If I drop it, it still hurts, but not as bad.

Does anyone have a specific source to get rubber bands to make a gravity flipper out of a Johnson? If you say e-bay, then what size latex rubber bands?
Thanks!

What is the approximate cost of a Lassen half-dollar gravity flipper? Don't suggest I ask Lassen. My understanding is that his coins are VERY expensive and I wouldn't want to embarass him or myself. And is the additional cost worth it?

A uncirculated Walking Liberty Half Dollar Lassen gravity flipper will set you back about $175 + shipping.

How easy is it to change out that band and have it working smooth?

It's not that hard. The fixed part of the flipper is either set to the shell with double sided tape or with a dab of crazy glue. You may have to pry a bit to get this part loose because you'll have to get this out to replace the band.

Hope that helps!

Gravity flipper is the coin where the fold part open itself by gravity force. With the other system called for us FLIP you can open the coin and the coin close itselft too. Depend the routine you can use one of other. We offer all the line in our web site in different model PRO or traditional: https://www.tangomagic.com/home.php?cat=308

It's Tango coins for me, all the way. Amateur/enthusiasts like myself can afford them and learn.

Does anyone out there have the Tango Gravity Flipper half dollar? How is it?

Also, can you access the website in English?

Just picked up my Tango flipper. From my limited knowledge it seems to be fine, although it is not broken in yet and will not lay flat when open. Value wise it seems to be a good choice, and as I learn I may find that I have preferences which the Tango coin can't meet. Then, I'll have to do some research and see about "what's next".

Of course, isn't that always the question with Magicians?

Marion,

Once you get to Tango Magic's site, you can switch to English by selecting "English" in the "IDIOMAS" drop down menu on the right.

I bought one of their kennedy Flipper's. Looks great but real tight and needs to be broken in like mentioned above.

On some websites, I see only "magnetic half-dollar flipper" coins and on others I see "half-dollar flipper." Does the coin act like a magnet, or does it have a steel core and is just attracted to magnets? Is there any advantage or disadvantage to buying a magnetic flipper?
