Is anyone familiar with the Hopping Half set by Tango? If so, would you recommend it? It's found at:

I wouldn't. One of the gaffs is done really poorly. It involved a cut down coin and the coin is flattened on the sides instead of milled. It looks really bad.

Thanks X. I have some '64 Kennedy coins that I'd like to use rather than halfs, but the gaffs from Schoolcraft and Lassen are out of my range right now, plus I'm not even close enough to needing that quality of gaff yet. So for now, I'll just go with Johnson. Thanks again!

Personally, I don't see the point in buying the Schoolcraft and Lassen gaffs for the standard gaffs. If you want a Shell, Scotch and Soda, standard Flipper, or Copper/Silver and you don't need specific coins, go with Johnson. I've got a Johnson Scotch and Soda, Expanded Shell, Copper/Silver/Brass, and Copper/Silver, all in Walking Liberty. I only have a Schoolcraft Gravity Flipper, and only because Johnson doesn't make a Gravity Flipper. My audience doesn't know that I saved a lot of money. If you're looking for specific coins/dates/variations, custom work is great, but other than that it's a waste. The only people that really care are the ones that know the difference and they don't pay the bills.
