PROS

I think this is the best bill change of all! It is completely gimmickless, and if you think that must make it much more difficult to perform, you might want to think again.

The effect is beautiful. Clearly Kyle has put a lot of thought into this. Not only is it gimmickless, the but setup and handling have been worked out in such a way that it is pretty easy handling and requires the simplest of sleights. This is not a knuckle buster.

The instruction is top notch. Kyle teaches several ways to handle this. Frankly, IMO, just go with the initial handling he teaches. It is brilliant, well thought out, to the point, and works tremendously well. I would really suggest you focus on just two sections of the DVD: The original handling and the ditching of the dollar bills so you end clean with just four one hundred dollar bills.

In addition to the moves, he teaches how to carry the bills, how to get in and out of the effect, and a creative way to both store and disguise bills using a receipt. The idea is tremendous. It is obvious Kyle is a working magician and it is also obvious this is a working routine. He has worked through every move to get the most magic out of the most streamlined of moves.

The effect is very true to the ad copy. If you liked the trailer, you are going to love this. The moves aren’t difficult, every single bill can be examined if you so choose, and he teaches how to end clean. Oh, it takes just a couple minutes to set up, a few seconds to reset, and it can be done completely surrounded.

What more can you ask for?

CONS

I can’t think of any. Well, if you use four hundred dollar bills, you are going to have to carry 404 bucks with you and resist the temptation to not spend them.

Creator Kyle Littleton takes you through every step of the process. The routine is easy to learn, easy to perform, and imminently practical, since it uses just eight normal bills. It's possibly even stronger than gimmicked versions as the bills can be examined before and after, and the change looks just as magical!
