I've heard good things about Metamorphosis Bills by Bob Solari and Atomic Bills. Anyone care to comment on the positives and negatives of Metamorphosis vs Atomic Bills? By desription they seem very similar.

I only have Atomic Bills, I've seen Metamorphosis Bills' demo. Based on the demo I can see the differences:
1. In MB, when one of the bill is taken from spectator's hand, the spect. does not know which one is taken by the magician until it is shown later, in AB the spect. can see which one at the moment it is taken from his palm.
2. AB has a method to ditch the gimmick so you can shown your hand empty, I did not see it in MB demo.

But then again it is only based on the demo, maybe with MB you can do the same thing as AB. One thing for sure MB is cheaper than AB and you can check the demo before buying. Both can be done impromptu.

I'd say, the best seemingly impromptu version is Joshua Jay's "Inflated Transposition". I use it a lot in the context of a longer routine and it is quite effective.

Warren,
Atomic Bills method can be done with any currency, you will get a US bill gimmick but with a little work you can create your own using any currency.

Doug,
Where can I find Joshua Jay's "Inflated Transposition" ? Is it in his book The Magic Atlas? Thanks.

Hey SIX: You're invariably going to need "something" to pull this off - some gimmick or handling. I've had someone perform this on me at the Magic Castle (he used the one Eugene Burger uses - the extra piece) and it was a nice piece of magic. Only one phase,however, but it was nice.

Magicstudent: It's on Vol. 2 of his DVD "Close Up. Up Close." Not sure if it's in the book (I don't have it). When you watch it, it's one of those things you might disregard, but I've had a blast doing it. Plays real nice and the set-up is practical and easy to carry.

I like the handling from Penguin, but recently saw a slightly different take on it by a new member here that I thought was cool. I think it's the first effect on his video.

Penguin's version is using gimmicked bill, easier to handle but you can not use borrowed bill. I will check Joshua Jay's version.

I agree with CasualSoul, the Penguinmagic version is great. I use a two dollar bill as the un-gimmicked bill that ends up in there hand, which draws a lot of attention & meantime allowing me to switch out the other bill so that both can be fully examined in the end.

You can find an excellent version on one of Michael Ammar's tapes. Its on one of of his "Easy to Master Money Miracles" tapes. I'm sure its now on DVD format. I think it made mention by the name of the "Million Dollar Mystery".

Close up: It is on Ammar's Easy To Master Money Miracles volume 2. It is called "Beswitched" and is a version by my friend George Hample. I perform this all the time and think it is one of the better versions because the bills are folded into quarters...and most of the bills are visible and is all self contained.

There is a little give and take...some other versions allow you to borrow the bills which is great, but you then have to fold the bills into 8ths and then add the gimmick. You have to find what works for you.

I carry and use the "beswitched" version off of Ammar's dvd. Works great!! I have never had people worry about the bills being mine. After all they think they have seen both sides of both bills and end up with the one in their hand that they can fully examine.

I believe this is also in the new L&L money magic dvd form their "Worlds Greatest" series.

I like the 1 and 5 transpo that Jay does available on penguin. I do it all the time. It is a work horse. I will check out atomic bills.

Mike Powers has a great routine called "DOUBLE YOUR MONEY" in his book POWER PLAYS.

I don't do all the phases in the routine, but do keep the $5 and $10 in my wallet all the time. This is easy to construct, ever since it has become more difficult in contructing the $5 to $1 bills using the new $5 bills.

I use my $10 and the spectator's $5 bill. I put both bills in his clenched fist and tell him that I will take 1 bill out. Whichever is left in his hand, he can keep. He apparently sees that I take out the $5 bill and gets excited, but then I tell him that you are hallucinating I do the magical wave and change the $5 to my $10 after a "blow". He ends up with his own $5 bill when he opens his hand. You can even have his $5 bill marked before the effect.

Pretty nice impromptu effect that I carry around all the time with other effects, like WONDERLAND DOLLAR and FRAUD.
