As many magicians know, coin gaffs can take traditional coin magic to extreme levels, yet they traditionally come with a hefty price tag. Mark Southworth took the best of the best in coin gaffs and infused them into a custom set of poker chips for a fraction of the cost. Sucker Punch is more than just a high quality yet inexpensive alternative to traditional coin gaffs. Within this single box is a sleek and elegant fourteen-piece poker chip set that empowers you to create an endless array of miracles like you would with any of those four hundred dollar sets of coin gaffs. Vanishes, productions, color changes, transpositions, and penetrations, just about any trick you've ever wanted to perform with coins, are all within the fistful of impossibilities that you can perform with Sucker Punch!

Sucker Punch boldly solves a problem that has plagued copper and silver coin routines - contrast. Compared to their coin counterparts, the marked contrast and larger size of the red and blue poker chips is far more striking and visible to larger audiences, making this the perfect tool for any magician looking to hit an audience hard with copper and silver coin magic.

And just to get you started, Eric Jones offers his coin mastery to teach you six uber-visual yet practical effects that you can perform with the Sucker Punch set. Eric guides you through the nuances and intricacies of Sucker Punch in an hour long detailed online instruction. Whether you're a first time novice or well-versed master, Eric Jones will inspire you to take the work included with Sucker Punch and combine it with routines that you may already perform to make this all your own.

Sucker Punch includes:

  • 3 Fly - A classic 3 fly routine
  • Sun & Moon - A copper/silver coin routine adapted for the Sucker Punch set
  • Circular Change - A simple yet beautiful color change
  • In the Hands Change - A poker chip transposition that happens in the spectator's hand
  • Trinity - A very clean production and vanish of three poker chips
  • Through - A poker chip through glass penetration that you have to see to believe
  • Fourteen-piece poker chip set - you'll have to find this one out for yourself!
No matter your skill level, you'll be sure to catch them off-guard with Sucker Punch!

"The poker chip through table is real magic."
- Akira Fuji

"Sucker Punch is a real world answer for those who want to perform gaffed coin magic for a fraction of the cost of traditional coin sets."
- Eric Jones

I was super excited for this trick as soon as I saw the trailer and bought it right away. It got here yesterday and I've been playing with these chips almost nonstop since. I will preface the negative section of this review by saying that I have had a total blast playing with these, there are just a few flaws that makes this product middle of the road to me.

Right away, these look great but once I got them out of the package they straight up FEEL cheap, and like out of a magic kit. They look much better than they handle. They're plastic and the colored "faces" are stickers on them with a matte finish (Any part of the chip with color or white is a sticker - it's literally the whole surface). So, you could replace the sticker with your own if you wanted, but I feel like this design is not good for those of us who want just the red and blue faces included. Not only for quality reasons, but in a moment I will say that I found the stickers so far to actually HURT the set's functionality. BUT, this set is only $40. I didn't expect it to be super high quality - you get what you pay for.

First off, one of my gaffs had very bad quality control and stands out from the other chips: My red s***l's sticker is a much more deep and colorful red than my other red chips, meaning that when it's in play with the red ones, you can tell one of them is off. For this reason, I will probably never use it. The s***ls are also obnoxiously thick and big compared to a coin one would be. It makes sense because this is a plastic chip set but I honestly don't know if I'll use these s***ls ever.

The star gimmick of this set are your s***t coins. The s***t coins you get are capable of awesome visuals, color changes, productions and vanishes... But, unfortunately, mine sometimes are a huge hassle to use, because the matte stickers provide enough friction that sometimes they won't.... Do what they do... (without revealing too much.) They get "stuck" a lot right in the middle of a routine.

Eric's teaching is awesome. Zero complaints. Some beautiful routines in here that I will apply with my nice real coin gaffs. He is so creative and awesome to have in the commercial coin magic community.

This set is a great set if you want to at least get some exposure to using some coin gaffs without spending the hundreds of dollars that real ones cost, while also learning some fun applications. I'd argue that this set doesn't do s***ls justice, but if you wanted to play around with one without spending a ton of money this lets you do that. I am most likely to use these for color changing coin style routines if I'm doing a gambling themed event, and besides that I will just use real coins as usual. The shininess, thickness/weight, handling, smoothness, and audio sounds coins produce are better in every single way than these chips. The one thing these chips have as an advantage over regular coins, besides a gambling theme if you want that and the low cost, is the color contrast between red and blue that copper and silver can't even capture.

All in all, a very fun set to play with - just be aware that these are not very high quality at all and routines that require a lot of friction of the coins, like 3 fly routines, are rough because of the matte stickers.

A bit dissapointed Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 14th, 2016
Great instruction video by Eric. I was disappointed that the chips are lightweight plastic with stickers. The stickers were a big surprise and disappointment. I was an early adopter so I wasn't aware. The stickers also interfere with the operation of some of the chips. After a few weeks of practice, I'm still not confident enough to even work these for family as a gimmick failure is very likely. There are some "fixes" but I'm not willing to throw any more money to make my purchase work. This is on it's way to the bottom drawer. I'm not sure this version of the product was ready for sale.

Great teaching, mediocre quality Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 14th, 2016
Fantastic idea. Poor execution. Chips are cheap plactic. Very light. Stickers are misaligned on some. Split chips stop sliding after moderate practice. Teaching video is exceptional. Now they need a professionally made set of chips to go with it.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 31st, 2016
Sucker punch is really really awesome.First off all I want to thank Eric Jones and Mark Southworth.Great job guys.

With sucker punch, there is no limit to what you will do.Just imagine and do it.Just like coin magic.Everything you need is in this box.I've been working magic for many years.Sucker punch is one of my favorites.

The price of this trick is very low.Really high quality material.But be careful, do not use wet or sweaty hands.If you do this, your chips are ruined.

Instruction video is very nice.Eric teaches us very good routines and you create a lot of routines.There is no limit.

There is nothing much to say.I love it.I recommend everyone.Everything is perfect.Just buy it.
You will not regret.

Has it's uses but disappointing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 29th, 2017
I have never given a bad review here but this time I feel I need to let others know what to possible expect. These are not real poker chips so they lack that feel. They are plastic with stickers.
This could be useful for effects with the classic coin gimmick since it is much cheaper and does work well. The problem is the second gimmick which is a harder to find gimmick in real coins. The tricks explained are using this other gimmick also. I found it hard to maneuver and did not work in a way that enabled me to do the effects explained.
You may have more success with it than I did but I have not found a way to use it properly yet.

Decent, but could be better Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 17th, 2017
Let me start by saying the stickers don't bother me and extra stickers are included. Also, saying the fact that the chips feel "cheap" is not fair. For $40 and the amount of gaffs you get (4) the price is very fair. My biggest complaint is that the split chips simply do not work after moderate practice. They are now working due to the fact I added a small amount of scotch tape in the center of all of them. However, this should have been tested and been a non issue prior to distributing the set.

Overall I do like the set and I have enjoyed messing around with it and fooling my wife and friends. I would recommend this set to those looking to get into coin magic or those looking for a different item to use than coins.

Barely passable Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 9th, 2017
They look nice but cannot be relied on for public performance. They are more like an introductory set to see if you enjoy these type of gimmicks. For example, the s***t coins are difficult to operate but a lot of fun when they do work and capable of wonderful effects. I would love a pro set of these, but I've also read too many bad reviews of much more expensive sets

Pretty SWEET set! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 28th, 2016
These are some pretty sweet little chips, they allow so many different possibilities for coin work, and a great set for someone who doesn't have $100's for some Morgan Silver dollars gaffs or who just enjoys coin work!

There is so many effects out there already that these chips can accomplish, and these are all in ONE SET!

I like to start a routine by making it appear( Card2Phone has the Red Chip) from my phone, or using a coin appearance I learned from some Eric Jones material. Then go into the Trinity routine from this and end clean with the classic Raven.

Add. To. Cart.
Hell add 2 so you will always have these badboys!!!

Great set for the price Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 12th, 2017
I love this set. However, the only thing keeping it from being 5 stars for me is that my s***t chips have become very hard to work after just a few hours of handling. 3 fly is nearly impossible with my set because they won't work into an upward slide without showing. It's as if the stickers have lost some grip and become smoother with minimal handling though they don't actually feel different to the touch. I'm not sure if the extra set of stickers in the box would make them any easier to work or not.

Second edition Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 12th, 2017
When I preordered the set in December, I saw scary reviews of a set where the stickers were bad, the sets were defective and other horrific things. The slogan 'you get what you paid for' kept popping up as well.

I never had this first edition, but with the second edition, I can tell you that these comments mean nothing anymore. The stickers feel great. Even if you mess them up, sucker punch comes with two sets of stickers( eight stickers, four blue and four red). I also love how there is no way that one color is better than the other. Both the colours have the same gimmicks and come in the same quantity.

Overall, I was amazed by how good these chips were and I would highly recommend them to anyone who cannot afford to pay for insanely high priced coin gaffs. I couldn't, but now I doing coin magic all the time. One thing's for sure- you can always catch them off guard, with sucker punch!
