Over six months in the making, Whit Haydn and Chef Anton have created the perfect shells for any Three Shell Game routine. Including design enhancements and tips from real working pros like Chanin, Eddie Joseph and others, these shells are perfectly weighted and balanced.

The Magnetic Golden Shells are cast in heavy pewter and then heavily plated in 24 karat gold and includes shot glass, drawstring bag and the perfect peas (both hard and soft rubber).

This set of shells looks identical to the normal Golden Shells set, but each shell contains a powerful rare-earth magnet which is molded into the pewter, opening up many new possibilities for three shell routines.

"This set of shells and peas is going to be for the shell game what the Paul Fox cups were for the cups and balls." -Johnny Thompson

Manufacturer Says

From the olden days of carnivals, to city back alleys, to magic shops... the three shell game has fooled them all. We humbly introduce the set of shells that grip perfect and perform with an expert feel. The shells are made in brass then twice gold plated.

What You Get

Comes complete with three magnetic golden shells, peas, drawstring bag, shot glass and instructions.

SFS Golden Shells Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2014
Just a "buyer beware"- the "golden shells" that are furnished with the Sal Piacente video are NOT the same shells as the SFS Golden Shells. That said, the SFS magnetic Golden Shells are a work of art. Any true "shell worker" would be proud to introduce these props to his audience. They handle wonderfully, the magnetic feature gives the magician more performing options. As with any SFS product, this receives my highest recommendation!

A great Start Report this review

I am totally new to the shell game and these are my first shells. THey are on the high side but are beautiful and impressive. I started learning with these and the disk "An Introduction to the Shell Game" from the School of Scoundrels (also sold at Penguin where I bought it). In a short time I was already preforming this (only for entertainment of course) with the basic routine, which is baffling to the unknowing masses.
With the added magnetic set that adds for some real creative possibilities

It ribs me the wrong way Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 14th, 2012
I have to retract something I just wrote in a previous review and that was the price I paid for it I just looked it up and realized I got the set for free with the purchase of Sal Piacente double DVD on the shell game and three card monte. The total price for the DVD's and the shell's were $59.00. The set looks exactly the same as the Magnetic Golden Balls and I'm pretty sure it is. The only thing I didn't like a about were the horizontal lines or ribs which I call on it. I just found it hard to pick them up and get a grip. Other than that and the ridiculous price tag it's great

well made gimmicks for the price Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
You are paying for the quality of the gimmicks, which are well worth the money. They will last a lifetime and are beautifully crafted. however, i am not a big fan of the overall routine as a whole, hence the 3 stars

Great! Report this review

You've always wanted to learn the Cups & Balls but never really had the time? Then get the Golden 3 Shell Game instead! The same idea but much easier to master! However, I recommend you to get some kind of mat for the ultimate magic experience.

Disappointing shells Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 26th, 2005
I was very disappointed with the performance of the shells. The back edge is too flat, which makes the 'move' far too tough. Luckily, I have some plastic shells at home, which do a far better job.

The good news is the dvds that come with it. Whilst Piacente is clearly a twit, there is enough advice on the two dvds to make up a good few routines for the shells and monte alone.

very good trick Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 28th, 2005
This is a very good trick, and a good way to fool people. The reason I gave it 4 stars is that you have to practice to make sure the audience doesn't see you picking up the pea. All in all, it is a very good trick.

expensive....... Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 17th, 2005
I have the Golden Shells and the Perfect Shells.

The Golden Shells are a good collectible, but performance wise, not that great. they are slippery. If you are a fan of the 3 shell game then get these ones. Also, the Golden Shells are harder to perform on a slick surface, unlike the perfect shells which can be performed on slick surfaces. I would say save 40 bucks and get the perfect shells!

I liked the shells. People are amazed. You can be very clever and do whatever you want with them. People who see the trick are completly amazed. My only gripe is that it is a bit expensive for what it is. Though it is the perfect set up for the game( great shells and nice peas) It would be a better choice for you to buy the combo with 3 card monte(sal picante, 3 shells(sal picante) and 3 golden shells and peas by penguin. Great product though, I am satisfied.
