Actually he did handle the bills more freely you weren't just imagining it. Also the transition between denominations was cleaner so my guess is Richards devised a way to hand them out after the change. I love EB1 and I love Hand Out 500 I'll use both since the visuals are different on both so I don't see the problem with owning each of them. Looks great Richard!

Vorezo it is stronger to change money into larger money but there is a solution to where it isn't as expensive. If you have to make it a little less strong, then so be it.

I do, although my concern with the effect goes even further. I have EB and have not used it, because I just can not make any sense of it. I know magicians do weird things with strange objects, but turning something into real money and not distributing it to your faithful audience seems at the very least a little miserly. Turning it back into what it was before- are you a stupid magician, or just being mean?? I can't get past that...

Hello,

read your post on why you don't do EB. it's such a beautiful effect, it's been around for so long and used with great effect by patrick page and other pro's all up until now that there must be a way you can find to present it and be happy with it.

would this help make some sort of sense for you?

I take out old 'collectors' uncirculated canadian bills to show them how they've increased in value by ten fold....literally.... (then I flick and they visually change into new $10 bills).

however, once money has been alterted (magically) in this manner, in the wrong hands, they may inadvertantly be changed back to it's first state (the old collector's $1's) while you are paying at a cash register (then I flick and they visually change back into $1 old style bills - like cinderella does at the stroke of midnight) - which could land you in jail.

I can't take that liability and I'd never wish that on any poor soul - so I make it a point never to hand them out. I just change the bills myself when I am in need.

it conveys that you are not a stupid magician because you are able to do it yourself and use the money but explains why you don't hand them out and what the extreme consequenses are if you did hand them "altertered" bills out.

you could use this explaination for regular $1 USD bills and changing them to $10's or $20's or $100's. the same applies - you could go to jail trying to pass $1's as $100 dollar bills.

with the above explaination (which I don't even go so far to explain) this is just as strange a thing for any magician to do as all his other effects. it's on even level playing ground now.

so go out and start doing Extreme Burn!!! no more exuses!!!

Have fun with it! Hope this helps you try it out! it's Fun!

Richard doesn't release poor effects. The video on this looked cleaner and more magical than EB. Just that little bit extra that elevated it.

Miserly? Do you give your coins away at the end of your miser's dream routine?

Turning them back is not a problem, you just need the patter. I do it and stick the money in my pocket. They know what they saw, and it is over. It is a mini stage illusion. After the effect on stage the performer doesn't invite them up to inspect the props. It just happens, they (hopefully) are amazed in what they saw, and you move on.

How about starting with 100s changing to 1's and presenting it as the most useless magical ability ever. At lease no one will be lining up to have you change their money which always seems to be the punchline of this trick

I was in your camp, which is why I really like Steve Haynes's "Handout 500."

Xcath1-

Along your line of thought, I have considered starting with the larger bills, for example 20's, then borrowing one from a spec, adding it to the stack, then changing them all to ones. Could be good comedy, right up until you get punched. Just gotta have a way of getting that 20 back to the spec before he socks you...

bugjack-

Stopping short of exposure, can you explain how Handout 500 avoids the problems at issue?

Thanks,

Jim

Well, you can distribute the bills if you want. Or, on another level, dropping them to the table or handing them out to show them as singular provides a more satisfying concluding beat than changing them back. In my opinion, at least.

Hi Everyone,
Does anyone know when Extreme Burn 2.0 is due to be released? Am trying to decide between getting EB (looks like a better change in the demo) or Handout500 (nice to be able to hand out bills and thinner) and hoping the introduction of EB2 will tip the decision one way or the other!
Thanks, Simon

Am I correct in assuming that Handout is examinable and EB is not?

You can not hand out all of the bills from EB as the gimmick is integral to one of the bills. This is what allows the switch back to the original denomination.

I have Extreme Burn, but didn't get an email from him about Extreme Burn 2. Has anyone heard anything else from Richard?

Can't wait to see the details so I can decide if it is worth it. Anyone who bought David Regal's Sudden Deck, and Sudden Deck 2.0 knows that a good trick can always be improved upon.


Agreed, but if the creators would work in all those improvements in the initial release of the effect, it would save many of us lots of dough, and of course, the creators of said effects would not have the fun and profit of selling us the effect two or three times.

I love my original EB, but it will take some substantial changes from Richard before I decide to shell out more bucks. After, all the multiplying money thing is only an illusion so I'm not getting any richer by performing the effect or by purchasing. (But Richard is!)

Now if the illusion was real, that would be cool, because I could afford to buy all the improvements they put out.

All that aside, I have to admit, the changes on that video looked pretty eye popping.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.
