You will not be disappointed.
After much soul searching about a signature, I decided not to have one.

Well, I today received the TUC. Frankly spoken, I am kind of disappointed because

1. the gimmick is way too big -
Well, I think, it is not worth the 80 euros - or do I have a broken one.
Normally I am very satisfied with the quality of the cheaper coins, like copper brass, or scotch soda - but THAT is really disappointing...

HaraldM, there has to be something wrong with your coin. I have 2 TUCs one on Kennedy and one on C/S, and neither one has a problem

The gimmick is a little large to allow the effect to work. When I show the coin, it looks like a regular coin.

I suggest to contact Mr Tango directly and discuss with him the problems with the coin.

Sorry about your experience, it is a nice gimmick

Does anyone know if it is possible to get the half dollar version with a 2001 date on ?

I have contacted a few suppliers and they all seem to be 2009 date on the half dollars. I am in UK but happy to use oversees suppliers.

Thanks
JD

JD, contact Mr Tango directly here at the Café and ask him about the dates.
Both of my coins are 2009

Hi JD,

We use new coins to make our products. But, if you send me the coins we can make T.U.C with any coin.

Dear Harald,

I sent a pm to solve your problem.

We could make TUC in gold dollar, but is this coin available for the current use in USA ?

I think what Ian is speaking of is the new "gold" colored dollar coin. They are available in the US. You don't see them too often, unless you ask for them at a bank.

As I recall, they are larger than a quarter, but smaller than a half dollar.

Sammy


Mr. Tango, indeed Sammy is right. The current series of US dollar coins are the "President's series" they are gold in color and about the size of a US quarter. In fact I believe the "President's series" dollar coins are based on the popularity of the quarter dollar "state and territory series". All of that is just detail.

My point is that while I love working with the current TUC, some would be less suspicious of the coins themselves if they were based in current issue coins. Half dollars are currently the largest physical coins in current circulation but, they are pretty uncommon. The next largest are the gold-toned dollars. However, I suspect that they may be too small to adapt to the TUC design.

Just thinking out loud here...

I just received it, I found the gimmick is too thin, spectators will very easy find out the difference.

In my opinion - the gimmick is only too thin if you don't manage it properly. When fully assembled the gaff is a dead ringer for a normal coin - when in use, sure you don't have every angle available but I bet you don't show a spectator the back side of a shell or the edges of a C/S, etc. The gaff is what it is and you use it as creatively as you can. Ever use a slippery sam shell? That's a bit thin too huh? With proper misdirection, timing and routining you could pass off a dinner plate as a Morgan and nobody would suspect it. Just my 2 cents.

I just received my custom Morgan TUC today from Mr Tango. I must say I am extremely pleased with the quality of the product. When assembled - you simply cannot tell the gaff from the real coin, the tolerances are that tight. I think this is a fantastic addition an arsenal of gaffed coins - lots of potential and a unique execution. My compliments! -Michael

I received my "IKE" dollar T.U.C. last week. This changes everything for me. I can finally do some routines using full sized dollar coins. I can't classic palm a dollar sized coin at all, so I decided to just stick with half dollar sized coins. With the "IKE" T.U.C. I am able to do a few minor sleights and then unleash the T.U.C. on the spec.(s). The results I am getting are wonderful. This is the first time of my being able to use silver dollar sized coins and I am delighted. It works really well in my RNT2 dollar-sized Okito box, No one has any idea at all that the T.U.C. isn't a regular coin. I use it to vanish one coin, every time I fill the Okito box with what I haven't sleighted away. If you have a T.U.C., you will understand what I mean. It works perfectly.

Mr. Tango also sent me a companion gaff for the half-dollar sized T.U.C. coins that I have. He made me a special copper/copper T.U.C. for me and provided this new gaff for it as a "Beta" test. When he releases this new gaff, coin Magic will be changed. It's really that good. I can't say what it is yet. You'll have to wait for Mr. Tango to let this new gaff become available. It makes the T.U.C. even more devastating. It rocks!

I've had the new Tango coin rattle for just over a month now and am using it everyday I perform. It is totally fantastic.

Now we wait for the Tangopedia, Mr. Tango's encyclopedia of gaffed coin Magic. It's going to be wonderful to have all that information in just one place. I've already got my order in for one of them and a few more of his other gaffed coins too. His new Tango made Chinese style coins are wonderful. I am ordering an expanded shell in Chinese style because of the quality of his new Chinese coins.

Today I put together my TUC copper and silver, TUC half dollar and TUC penny and for the magnet effect it works as a stack of coins. So, I palmed the 3 TUCs and I made appear three coins first and them I duplicated the coins, totaly I made appear 6 coins. I'm wondering if I would have 8 TUC palm, 4 in every hand, I could make appear 16 coins. Wow, It would be fantastic.
Mr. Tango, could you make a special price for 8 identical TUCs ?

Can split coin routines be done with TUC?

I think you can do all the split routines with TUC, because you can duplicate your coin when you want. Better that split because TUC can be show it very clear.

Thanks Desmond,

I have just tried with 8 TUC Morgan and I made the best coin production that I could ever imagine. I took 4 in any hand and it happens.

I will send a pm, thanks for the idea.

I got 4 Ike TUC to make a multiplying coins and "this is incredible". I can make the explotion or the coin bomber effect and show the coins super clear for his edges.
Somebody say that it's an inteligent coin and I'm thinking that's true, when the 4 coins are together they works like a stack to be palm very easy and when I want they separete really easy.

Thanks once again Tango.

I'm curious - I have three TUCs and you cannot place one on top of the other because of the magnetic fields repelling each other. E.g., if you lay one down on a table and then try to place another on top the second TUC will at first try to hover about 1/2" over it and then it gets pushed off to the side quickly. You can invert one and they will attract each other, but that can only occur with two - any more and they are pushing each other away, fairly strong.

I can't see palming a stack of these. Won't work here.

Thank you.

Hello Jim,

Actually, we discovered that stack option one week ago and for this reason we are trying to make the coins with the same magnet polarity. It's a new thing with TUC I didn't notice about it.

I have been playing around with the TUC for about 2 weeks now and after a first shock (I thought I received a broken one) it turned out to be a real high quality gimmick.

I always used Mr. Tango's Scotch and Soda and thought that it would be quite better to let the vanished coin re-appear easily and with the TUC this problem is now really solved. I only needed about 5 to 10 minutes to learn the movement, which by the way is very well explained on the fabulous DVD, so that now a lot of tricks are possible - not only those showed in the trailer but many more.

So, I just want to congratulate Mr. Tango to this product and by the way: I have never met someone in the cyberspace before that so much worries about the customers! Very very recommendable!

Mr. Tango,
My T.U.C. arrived today..1964 Kennedy Half...WOW....I cannot put it down....I cannot say enough about the quality of my coin...Thank you for the most gracious and finest customer service someone could ask for. If you work with gaffed coins, you could certainly benefit from a T.U.C. in your repertoire.

I must also add, as "HS" posted....I just want to congratulate Mr. Tango on this product and I too, have never met someone previously in the cyberspace that demonstrates such world-class customer service! I too, do HIGHLY recommend Mr. Tango to others!
