Mario Lopez is one of the recent big surprises of the world of magic. He won the second prize in Micro Magic at the most recent FISM -- his magic is original, simple, different, and fresh.

Chinese Tweezers is one of his creations, the kind of magic that can only come from a brilliant mind.

Imagine poking a pair of tweezers down through the small hole in the center of a Chinese coin, and upon pulling the tweezers back up through the hole, a large Eisenhower Dollar appears on the tip of the tweezers. Amazingly visual!! The effect can be repeated numerous times with the same audience, becoming more magical each time! This looks incredible! There are other ways to make the dollar appear - your imagination is the limit!

Now you can perform this beautiful and incredible magical routine. See what all the excitement is about! The set includes all the necessities: coins, tweezers, and a link with video instructions in both English and Spanish.

For the price of this effect, I was expecting to receive cleverly gaffed coins.

There is nothing gimmicked in this trick, it's just pure sleight of hand!

Why Tango has it's name on this effect is puzzling since there is nothing gaffed about the coins you receive.

This should have been a $10 download with coins that you already have in your possession.

Very dishonest and misleading!

poor quality Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 28th, 2017
Excellent trick. This is my first Tango product and was very disappointed in the Tango quality. Way overpriced for the poor quality Chinese coin and cheap flimsy tweezers. I substitute the flimsy tweezers with a sturdier brand and substituted the poor coin with a genuine old Chinese coin. Probably will not buy another Tango product.

Misleading at best Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 16th, 2017
I wish the other review here had been up when I bought this- I am disappoint. Tango stuff is usually quality, except for one folding coin I got without the cuts....Mr. Tango took it at a lecture, supposedly to send me a new one....no luck. Then this- I am willing to pay extremely high prices for Tango because of the quality of their gimmicked coins. Examined this set of coins carefully to see what the gimmick was- I was shocked that this is not only lacking any Tango product, it's shockingly low quality- discolored coins, and no actual Tango product. Trying to make it work as shown (can't download the video either, just watch on line) and no luck. Very sad product.

very overpriced Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 16th, 2017
This is a great trick. I gave it three stars because it is way overpriced. The three dollar coins are real, however, the Tango Chinese coin is very poorly made, has no weight to it and the brass coating over what I believe to be zinc has flaked off. Very cheap and ugly coin. Also comes with a very cheap .87cent pair of flimsy tweezers.

Chinese tweezers Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 10th, 2017
First of all I think the demo is misleading just a bit.I was under the impression there was a gimmick ed set of coins and or tweezers,why else would Tango put out and SELL NORMAL COINS AND A NORMAL SET OF TWEEZERS. With that being set your buying a nice original coin routine that looks amazing.
The video could have been a little more in depth but this is more for an advance coin magician.Heavy on the sleights but very doable with some practice.Not verified because I bought this at a local magic shop in Phoenix.
Happy Conjuring!

Now I know why.

Pretty pleased Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 22nd, 2017
I'm having a hard time understanding the negative reviews. The only part I can agree with is the price, but not by much, honestly.

When I first saw Mario perform this, i was intrigued to learn more about it. About the time this was released, I found the reference he refers to in the download.....and I still purchased his effect.

It is sleight of hand. Not difficult, but not easy. It's not self working and you are not buying gimmicks.
What you are purchasing is knowledge and a solid routine to get you started.

The dollar coins I received must be better quality than everyone else's because they are in regular circulation condition. No different than you'd receive from any other source....which is surprising considering Tango's reputation when it comes to their ungimmicked coins still looking off.

The Chinese coin....is of quality that I expected going in. Not great, but usable. The tweezers, they are what they are. Mini grooming tweezers.

While I'm not a big fan of the props Tango produces, the teachings are pretty solid.

Since this is ungimmed, swapping the included materials for your own shouldn't be a problem.

If you're looking for a gimmicked version, there is one. It's much larger, and cost much much more than what you're paying for here.
You can't please everyone, but I hope this helps.

Brilliant effect, Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 8th, 2018
I really like this trick and I got it to work perfectly once or twice cold without any practice. I would have given it 5 stars but I suspect that even with lots of practice it is a trick that could foul up now and then. Also the tweezers supplied are a bit too small so I might buy my own.
Nevertheless the return for effort is really high for this effect so it will stay on my desk until I can do it as perfectly as possible, then I know I will be doing it everywhere I go.
