The Con By Lloyd Barnes

This is a very clever little bit that I can see playing quite good. The video is very straightforward on explaining how to make the gimmick from things you have at home.

The basic effect is that a coin is vanished & made to visually reappear in the clear window of your wallet.

The wallet Lloyd uses in the video has a large clear ID window, I don't know if this is a feature of European wallets? Most wallets I have seen have a much narrower ID window.

I do not see this being a problem, you can adjust accordingly. That being said, with a window in your wallet & items that you have already(if you don't have the items required, I would be shocked. And if you don't have the items needed, you can get them anywhere(but, I'm almost positive you have them).

Putting this together should take less than 10 minutes & you should be happily playing with it.

No routines or sleights are taught, it is simply the construction of the gimmick & the basic handling. It is left up to the viewer to decide what to do with it.

This will make your wallet in to a coin bag of sorts,it's nice to be able to gimmick your wallet to do this.

The video is very raw & theres no fancy camera work or cheesy special effects & blaring weird music....just a guy explaining how to make the gimmick.

I definitely like this

It's rather inexpensive & I think that people will come up with some cool ideas for it(perhaps those purchase it will share what they come up with).

Well worth your consideration.

I picked this up as well, it's a very cool idea that you can play around with immediately!

One thing to the guys that produced it - I would definitely recommend putting in some performances or ideas of the effects you can use with it. The demo has a couple of ideas, but the actual video just covers the making and use of the gimmick.

For the price though, this is a very cool idea, and the download, while a bit basic in terms of production, is clear and easy to follow.

Go for it! It costs only slightly more than a pint of beer.
