Some are really good, some aren't. I like their Flipper Coins, but hate most of their Shells. Their Two Copper/Silver in Quarter size is good, but their Hopping Half is really sad. It's a crapshoot with them, because you never know from one product to another.

I've heard that Tango has really improved and gotten new technology so that there's more precision in the coins. I wouldn't have recommended them before, but I recently got the magnetic flipper and I don't really see how I could possibly improve its quality (One of the extra bands I received made it into a gravity flipper). I'm heard on themagiccafe that the shells are good now, comparable to Johnson (which I would always recommend). If you want to play it safe, go with Johnson.

Both Tango and Sasco products are great value. And their quality has definately improved over the last 5 years.

I personally would not pay top dollar for gaffs because if they're made right the first time, they'll last you forever if they are made well. And all the Tango products I personally own have been excellent. Just wish I didn't have to spend good money for my Canadian gaffs. :(

I have one from Johnson. I'll sell you it for 20. Reason is that it has a date on it, and I'm looking to get the newer style quarter shell
