I use a flat 2" diam x 0.5" thick neodymium magnet from Wonder magnet:

It's powerful and fits well in your hand, so you can put the proper
spin on it for the magnet drop.

Wolfgang is right. I believe the phrase "Most powerful magnet..." was
used in reference to Nd magnets in general. The "Giant Neo" that
has is 7/8" x 1", and it sounds like people doing this demo are using
flatter disc shape. Right?
