Here in Canada, they are thinking of making future bills using plastic (like Australia). Ahh! EB 3.0 Richard? Extreme Burn 3.0: Plastic Money?

I appreciate on the dvd the workshop on paper and magazine clips. It gives precious advice on the setup of the gimmick in this context.

Wow! I was speaking to my wife, and told her about it. To my surprise she already knew about the government going with plastc money here in Canada. I really need to talk with her more. (lol) She's been to Australia a few times and explained to me what their money is like, so I'm not too worried about the plastic money keeping me from performing EB.

I would be a bit worried, it is a lot more difficult. Not impossible by anymeans but a lot harder. so much so that ive never seen an australian magician perform EB. I performed it for a little bit but in the end it got too anoying. I just went back to a normal billswitch.

We'd still be able to perform blank pieces of paper/magazine clippings/blank cheques into cheques. Maybe even use my idea I had with Hand Out 500 and change Canadian Tire money. There's always a solution. I sure won't be dropping EB just because I can't use my money with it anymore. It's just too visual and impressive.

Well, there's an idea for a thread - effects with plastic bills. I suspect one day most of the World's currencies will be plastic (if not the dreaded credit card!)
Good job I'm a pirate, I can use "old" money without arousing suspicion!!

It looks like right now it's just the $10's and $20's, so changing $5's to $50's will still be okay.

I also hear the Lonnies and Toonies are going to have a dramatic change to them as well. I was close to buying a ROY KUEPPERS Jumbo Canadian Loonie, but I will be holding off on that now.

Hey Potty. Do you use the 8 Reale coins?
Saw some molds for them down in the Keys and wondered at the possibilities.

Even when Canada changes to plastic money, I assume American currency is common enough that you could use it instead, or am I incorrect?

American money is not common enough in Canada. It could be used I suppose. I use half Kennedy's for my coin routines, and don't get questioned a lot about why I use them. I don't think anyone would suspect American money being gimmicked, and would probally work.

I guess using American currency can actually have its benefits:

1- You explain that from time to time, when you're short on money, you exchange your Canadian currency for American bills.

2- Why? Because American bills are made of a different paper with special properties. Perform your routine. You then explain that once you've transformed them, you exchange them back for Canadian bills and you've made a nice profit.

3- It would allow you to use all of the changes from the dvd's

4- It would give you an out when someone asks you to change their bills (you can't because it only works with American bills).

You could even say you were just in the States a couple days ago and you still have some American bills you haven't exchanged yet because you're going back there soon. Then go into how lucky they are to catch you with American money on you because you can show them something very special about American bills because of the special paper they are made with. Perform your routine.

Another reason for using American bills would be to mention that you make even more money doing it with American bills since their dollar is higher.

Take out some pieces of paper as you talk about how you're going to the States in a couple days and that you haven't gotten the time to go exchange your money yet. You could also mention that you don't trust them with exchanging your bills and so you like to take care of it yourself. Perform your routine.

All in all, it might be better to use American bills. Many ways to justify having them and using them. I would still prefer being able to use Canadian bills though.

Yes you can change the bills and immediately hand them out, exactly as in Hand Out 500. The advantage of handing out the bills with Hand Out 500 is that the gimmick is smaller therefore your angles are better.

What is "plastic" currency?


Mickey, if you read the start of the thread, Australia now has plastic currency. Canada may be switching too. Supposedly it makes extreme burn much more difficult.

I bought extreme burn 2.0 from magic pro shop. WooO! Finally

I've been wanting extreme burn since before christmas last year. Heard good things about it, and I've even had people ask me "Can you turn my $1 into $100's?", now I can! Haha. So I bought 2.0. So you have to build the gimmick right, yet it comes with it? Is it hard to build? Going to do some digging here..hope it isn't too difficult

It comes with a gimmick, and you have to build the other gimmick. There are two gimmicks in EB. It`s easy to construct the gimmick.

Great! Sounds good. I have a few tricks where the gimmick takes forever to build, or you have to be extremely accurate. I've heard with the gimmick here you have to take your time to build it nice, otherwise spectators can see it. Is this true? Extreme Burn 2.0 shipped out today. I chose free shipping.

Hi Strange Tasting Fish Sticks,

You do need to take your time building the gimmick and you do need to be accurate. However, it really isn't that difficult to make (nor does it take too long). Just take your time and follow the instructions on the DVD... you'll be fine.

Regards, Steve

Great, I can't wait! Thanks! There's too many tricks I have where making the gimmick is a pain, I never do some of them.

It's not hard to build the gimmick, but the more time and care you put into it will result in a better outcome. Putting the gimmick together with accuracy is important. The more accurate, the better the gimmick. It's well worth it.

The gimmick is dead easy to build.

I think this is the definitive take on Pat page's effect. The Underground change looks like real magic. Your wrist just makes a motion and the bills change. I don't see any other effect out there that does it as well as Richard's Extreme Burn 2.0.

The Underground Change is also found in his original version. For those of you that don't know. The Underground handling makes for a great multiple bill change!

I should be receiving it soon, hopefully. Can't wait. Great to hear the gimmick is easy to build. There's no bank near me, such as my bank company, I was thinking I could go to safeway or walmart and ask if they have some crisp bills. I'm assuming its best to use crisp new bills? Most likely I would get 4 $1's, and 4 5$s. How many bills are you supposed to use in EB? 4 or 5?

Thanks again

For those of you who are worried about building the gimmick---I did it. And please trust me when I tell you if I can do it so can you. I have searched high and low for someone who is, shall we say, more "gimmick building challenged" than me. As of this writing I have found noone. So I hope this helps.


Good magic to all,


Eric

I gave up on it.It's a bit problematic with our currency.
Slow Burn works really well with Aussie currency,though.
This is in my wallet ready to go at all times.The wallet also keeps the notes flat.

Great, having problems with the gimmick. Looks easy to do on video but this is a mess. Looks like I'm short one bill even though I have a total of 6 $5's and 5 $1's. The gimmick looks horrible despite me putting it together as accurate as possible. I can't even seem to build it correctly, and it is obviously shoddy. This is a nightmare. I guess I'll just stick with pontas vanish, I didn't think it would be this difficult. Seems I'm going to have to scrape the bills pretty hard, just for this to work. Sigh
