For those of you that have the Ike version, do you feel that it is a good size or too big? I really like Ike coins but I'm worried about the size compared to the Half, Quarter, etc.


I don’t understand what you are asking. Too big? Too big for what? It is the size of a regular US Ike dollar; it is made from a US Ike dollar. Take a regular Ike and perform a few different palms and sleights. If it feels comfortable in your hand then the TUC Ike will too. If not... (Lather, rinse, repeat!)

Really, if you can work with a regular Ike dollar then the TUC Ike will work fine for you, jibz. It can only be too big or small for each individual; no one can tell you how it will fit in your hands.

About TUC sizes, I use Ike dollar for 3 fly coin and coin across, Half dollar for many flipper coin routines and to do the coins thru table. I'm anxious waiting the quarter size to perform the coin to can and to replace the half dollar one in the matrix effects.

JBZ,
I guess the question should be, what coins are you using now with which coins, Ike Dollars or Kennedy Halves?
If you're doing Kennedy Halves now then trying to jump to an Ike????
I would think it all depends on what you're comfortable using right now and what effects you are currently performing?
I personally like the Ike because everybody can see the coins whether doing Street Magic or Stand up...

I use mostly halves, but I really like Ikes. They're not as common, and as you said, are of a good size. I just wanted to see if you guys felt like more sleights were possible with halves due to their size, etc.

The size is not the issue for the TUC. Each size works the same way - very smoth, one handed - no spellbound moves required. The issue of size IMHO relates only to visibility: if you are doing a 3fly, you want people to see the coins from a greater distance, but if you are working at a table, half's are sufficient as Desmond67 says. As to angles, whether you are using a sh**l or TUC, the angles are the same so size would not be an issue there either. As for Matrix routines, I would think the smaller the better (the quarter size TUC seems awsome for that), but since I don't perform any matrix routines I will leave that to someone else for comment.

I currently have a half and a copper/silver TUC and love both. My next purchase will be for a custom Morgan TUC. I agree with all the other posters who have said that Mr. Tango is extremely easy to work with. I have PM'd him twice and he has been very responsive. I just need to take the time to go to my local old coin dealer to select the coins I want to use.

Since the TUC works well in conjunction with other Gaffs, you might get the size for which you already have an EXP S***l, S***t coin, Fl****r, etc. One big advantage of the TUC is being able to handle it as a normal coin. For this reason the Kennedy Half will probably be the most popular version and have the most effects created for it. However, most of the 70+ TUC effects I have reviewed can be performed with any size TUC.

Hi,
I need help!

I have the 2 € coin, and I am not happy!

My coin has small dents on the side.
The coin is very loud at the slightest movement.
Also I can not put the coin from one hand to the other.
I would have to deal with the coin as a raw egg.
Always there is the noise!

Does anyone have an idea?

all the best

Hey Marc,

I also have the €2 TUC. I'm really happy with it. I only received it this week but its such a great gaff that I was practicing a normal matrix routine (normal as in without gaffs/gimmicks) when I realised that one of my coins was the TUC.
As for the coin talking. Like any trick we have to practice in order to make it seemless. You will have to get used to when you need to distract the audience but its not really a problem with TUC routines. Most of the time you are showing the audience that you have two or more coins or your are making coins multiple. Coins normally "talk." You can use it.

Like I said Im really happy with my TUC. Im in Germany and our Mr Tango even supplied me with a specificly german version.

Can anyone compare T.U.C Tango Ultimate Coin and Super Triple Coin by Johnny Wong for me? what is the most different pros and cons between these two? which one is more versatile?

Wong coin is a split coin and a slipery steel shell that you can not show as a regular coin. T.U.C. Is a totaly diferent concept because you can show the coin as a regular coin. By the way if you add a slippery steel shell to a T.U.C you can produce three coins from one

I have developed several routines combining the T.U.C. with other Gaffs like an EXP Sh**l. The difference in what Mr. Tango suggests is that the triple combo can also be tossed about like a normal coin. Also, several TUC can be handled as a single coin for St**ls and D**ches.

It is the most versitile of all of the avialable gaffs I have explored.

That sounds very interesting. I've never used a slippery sam or similar gaff; never seen one for that matter. But I think I am going to... Smile

Thanks!

Jim

Mr. Tango:

Where can I find this? And what is it actually called? On your site I cannot find much at all - search doesn’t work most of the time, and there is no category for coin s other than the specific ones listed on the left. Searching "slippery" brings no results; searching "sh**l" gets only 12 results, and I know you have more than that.

I did find the "Slippery Exp. Sh***" at other magic shops just now but none mention "steel". Is the steel required for magnetic purposes?

Thank you.

Jim
