A question for all the TUC owners, do you find any discrepancy in coin thickness less noticible with a thinner coin gaff (such as an English penny or quarter gaff)? Which currencies do you think are more deceptive, if any?

Reasonable question. My general answer would be that the spectator's attention should be on you rather that the coin -- that the object you hold is not "deceptive" or "magic" in its own right. The object is just a device for making magic visible. A gaffed object like the TUC allows you do execute sleights without the hundred hours of practice required with no gaff. You create and direct the environment in which magic can happen -- and a spectator should only notice what you give them permission to notice.

Right ... that is an ideal. You have a practical problem and concern.

Many of the effects in "TUC Appreciation" could have a problem with coin thickness creating suspicion. I did not include several effects because of this potential problem, e.g. ones in which the spectator handles the "leaf."

In all of the responses and emails I have received about the 60+ effects in the book no one has ever shared an "oops moment" in which a spectator questioned the thickness or "unnaturalness" of the TUC. This doesn't mean it neve rhappened -- only that it didn't matter to the impact of the effect.

If you think it is a problem that anxiety will be communicated to the audience. So, perhaps you should only do TUC effects in which the Leaf is never seen close up -- until you gain confidence.

Personally, the only problem I have ever had with the thickness is the different sound it makes.

I only use the TUC in effects where I hold the coins up vertically. I never use it in situations where it would be lying flat on a close-up mat or in someone's hand. Looks fine vertically!

Thank you.

and I have performed this hundreds of times for spectators.

I have no doubt that the spectator's attention could be directed in a way to discourage suspicion of the gaff. That said, I was curious if owners of multiple TUC coins found certain currencies more deceptive than others? I've never seen a TUC but I imagine the thickness would be more noticible on a thicker coin.

Sounds like the short answer so far is "no" or "it doesn't matter".

I use Morgan Dollar for coin across and never I receive any bad opinion about it, it depends how you use the coin. Anyway I think the half dollar size is the better if you are worry for that.
About DVD I will send the first pack this friday to US so next week the DVD will be there

Like mr tango said probaley the half dollar.
when I do the coins across routien.i think the
spectators eyes are on the count of the coins
more than the look of them.i have done this hundreds
of times.and not yet have I been called on the look
of the inner coin.

Mr. Tango,

What will the new quarter-penny TUC coin do? Will it instantly produce a penny out of a quarter and look like scotch and soda? What will the effect be? Thank you.
