For the price of this effect, I was expecting to receive cleverly gaffed coins.
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.
should have been a $10 download with coins that you already have in your possession.
dishonest and misleading!

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.

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.

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.

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
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.

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

I usually read the reviews before I make a purchase.
Now I know why.

Maybe the worst trick of 2017! Way too difficult and overpriced.

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.
