Looks like this is now being sold on Greg's website. Anybody have any thought/reviews for this?

Thanks,
RNK

Don't know anything about this aside from what's listed on the product page at the link. But knowing how clever and creative Greg and Karl are (as well as Dave and Anton) I'm sure there are very powerful and workable effects on here. I might have to pick it up and be a guinea pig.

Too bad this release uses the same title as Eliott Bresler's well known, highly praised, ongoing work:

The Billet Work of Elliott J. Bresler[/b]

I've actually been surprised that there hasn't been more use of Hundy 500 / Extreme Burn 2.0 type gimmicks for switching things for mentalism effects. Or maybe there has and I just haven't been aware of it.

People who search Google for Switchcraft and discover Elliott Bresler and his work will realise that occasionally magicians do release their work as a valuable gift to the community as opposed to releasing stuff for a quick profit.

This is a really good D.V.D. Love the effects on it. Very easy to make the gimmick and perform. Glad I bought this.

Too bad Elliott J. Bresler used the same title as John Scarne's effect "Switchcraft".

I thought the same thing. That is some epic work there! Billet switching, bill (note) switching and card deck switching are all must-learn skills to round out your skill set. This release provides another ingenious gimmick for many applications. Bravo!

This looks pretty good,I will wait for some hobbyist reviews to come through before taking the plunge.

Very nice switch device and excellent methods. And as usual it contents lots of good trick and excellent performance from Gregory Wilson.

However it will be hard, if not impossible; to make the gimmick with plastic money. So the Aussie and Canadian properly will miss out.
