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 and they feel like real shells!

The Street Shells set includes three shells, drawstring bag and the perfect peas (both hard and soft rubber).

"They carry easily with a couple of peas in my jacket pocket, and can work on any surface--even a cocktail bar--without a mat. They look and feel and handle like real shells. They even sound like real shells when they are placed on the wood surface of a bar, or on a marble coffee-table." - Whit Haydn

NOTE: The Street Shells set is intended for those who already know a three shell routine and does not include any instructions. Take a look at the Super Shells book, Bob Kohler's Golden Shells video or Phil Cass' video if you'd like to learn a routine.

A sad day Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 8th, 2014
I own 3 different sets of SC shells. Do to the lose of 1 of my street shells I ordered a replacement set. I was shocked at the poor quality of the new set! The shells had jagged edges from air bubbles in the mold making process. Even at a glance you could see the quality difference of the old and new sets. I spent an hour sanding down the edges of the new set just to make them usable.

I truly hate giving this review The School for Scoundrels products have always Brought me smiles and cash

These plastic replicas of walnut shells are perfect for doing a 3-shell game demo. They are lightweight, apparently indestructible, and after some preparation (sanding), they glide smoothly over any surface. And they handle a soft pea beautifully. I painted mine brown to make them look more realistic, and also to make them easier to grip. Out of the box they are a bit slippery.

Great shells Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 14th, 2011
I learned the shell game from the creator of these shells and just had to get a set of my own. These are the best shells around and the included Perfect Peas are all you will ever need. I even got another set of Perfect Peas since I know I'll eventually lose them all from all the use!

Color of the new ones don't match my old set Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 28th, 2018
I really like the shells handling but the color of these don't match an old set I purchased from Pop Hayden 2 years ago. They are much darker.

Good Quality & Moderately Priced Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 23rd, 2018
These are good shells and should last a long time. My only complaint is that since they are resin cast and not touched up after casting, these are a uniform color throughout, and look very fake. This can be remedied by painting a darker brown into the cracks and crevices and then wiping it off. The underside has a similar problem, but no crevices to accent, so you need to paint the undersides of these shells to resemble the insides of real shells. It's a bit of a pain to do, but worth the effort in my opinion.

In any event, just don't expect these to look like real walnut shells in color and patina. They look plastic. If that's OK with you, they are well worth the money.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 15th, 2011
i have been doing the shell game for 12 years now and is my most requested trick. out of all the shells i have used these are my favorite and will last you a life time. this is my second set only because i lost my first set in the move down here. i would recomend that if you want to learn to be a pro get the scoundrels touch volume 2 dvd. if your a beginner i recomend sal piacente's street monte.

i highly recomend this set

Good shells but inconsistent QC Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 26th, 2021
The first set I purchased has 2 shells that were practically identical and the 3rd shell was different in shape and color, so I returned the set and ordered a replacement.

The replacement set is similar but better. At least they're all the same color this time but one shell is much smaller than the other 2. Maybe it's intentional because you can feel by hand it's smaller, but this is never mentioned anywhere.

The shells work (nice Chanin tilt) and the peas are excellent.

The shells are easy to work with. A bit smaller than I expected but work much better than the Vernet shells. Easy to move around on different surfaces.
