I just saw this adverstised on Hocus-Pocus site. I was wondering if anyone knew if this is anyway different than the one by Mr. Eugene Burger called "The Last Dollar." The effect seems exactly the same but perhaps uses a different methodology.

Is the methodology used (without disclosing it)is the same, better or worse tha nthe mehtod used in Mr. Burger's "Last Dollar" effect.

Thank you very much.

This sounds similar to the Burger effect.

It is also more expensive.

John,

Thank you very much for your posting. If possible, could you kindly briefly state in what manner it is different, without revealing the methodolgy. I will be ordering it as this type of effect is probably one of the strongest close-up magic effects that you can do with a spectator using borrowed money. I look forward in obtaining your effect.

Thank you again for your comment and courtesy.

Michael

This reads a lot like the $1 and $5 transposition trick that has been around forever. Unfortunately since the $5 bill was changed it is no longer possible. This states other bills can be used, but $30? That is a bit steep.....reviews, comments?
Pay it forward and remember karma will take it from there

Hello Michael,
Thanks for your interest. It is difficult to answer your question without revealing too much. It happens just like it reads. You begin & end totally clean, you can use barrowed, unprepared bills, & they "magically" transpose. It's easy to perform, & I have fooled allot of magicians with this, many that are in the know of other methods. The gimmick is different than any other gimmick on the market, & it is made of the finest materials available. It's one of those effects that I carry in my wallet all the time. It's something that you can do anytime & anywhere, seemingly without any "props", just the two barrowed bills.
I think you'll agree once you see it live, that it's a "keeper"! I hope this helps!

John,

Thank you very much for your additional comments and explanation. Your routine and gimmick certainly are different than the other methods currently on the market. Your effect sounds like a real winner. Like Isaid earlier, I believe this effect is the strongest type of effect you can perform at a moment's notice with a spectator. I really look forward in receiving it. I am sure it will be a great addition to my repertoire, and I will be carrying this one around all the time.

Best regards,


Michael

This sounds incredible. I will be placing my order when I return from vacation and will post a review once I get a chance to work with it for a while.

There are only a couple of effects that I carry constantly with me. One is Sheets' Quantum Bender and the other is Atomic Bills. True, I wrote up both effects for the directions, and took the photos for the Atomic Bills... but I don't get any percentage on either. I'm more interested in having great stuff to perform. Both of these methods, while similar to some standard routines out there, advance the method significantly.

Is there a demo vid for the "Atomic Bills"?

The effect sounds very similar to Eugene's Last Dollar, except that the gimmick may have been slightly better modified.

No video at this time, sorry. The handling & gimmick are different. This approach took care of all the "problems" that I found with other routines. This routine & handling is logical, smooth, & clean, with no worries. I hope this helps.

Thank you, John.

Considering the above three factors, I will be placing my order on Monday.

With kind regards,

Sounds kind of like Bob King's " Rate of Exchange " effect that I had years ago.

The have been a lot of different bill transpo routines and methods.
They probably all sound about the same when described.
We'll just have to wait until someone can review this and compare it to the others.

I like this effect. I like ie a lot. It is the best bill transposition I have seen. It is not difficult to do. You can do it with borrowed bills, start & end clean, & gives the appearance of being impromtu_(if you have the gimmick you can do it any time) What more can you ask for. Mr. Sheets has given us a tool for a reputation making effect.
Thanks!
To answer a question, yes,you could work the routine so that the bills could be signed

Yup... the bills could definitely be signed... in fact that's a great idea... and provides some great opportunities for misdirection, if you think you need it (I don't think you do.).
