I just wanted to know how the Tango brand trick measures up to the quality of others, and make sure it is better that Sasco.

Tango's coins are alright, but they don't compare to Johnson coins.

My coin magic is really taking off now and I want to invest in some folding coins, shell coins, expanded shell coins, double sided (I've got a half dollar/english penny already which is great), chinese coins, pretty much a lot of gimmicked coins. Which brand do you suggest I get? I want something that doesn't look cheap and will last a long time. I also don't want an expanded shell that costs $120... What do you all suggest?

Johnsons are the best, but they're like 50 bucks.

Magic has always been expensive so I'll save up. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. I would rather pay $50 than $25.

Actually, I think they're around $35. But Johnson's are realy nice! I have a Sterling, which are okay, but I'd recommend the Johnson.

I did a search and didn't find any expanded shells by Johnson. Only Tango and Sasco. Do they go by another name? Or is it Expanded Quarter/Half Dollar by Johnson? I didn't find any of those

I don't think Penguin carries Johnson products, you'll probably have to go to Johnson's website... the name of which escapes me at the moment.

I looked on the site and did some research. I think I'm going to save up for a Kuepper.
