I have a version of the Bill Switch that uses no TT. You can show your hands empty before and after. No misdirection.

Is there already such a switch somewhere?

Yes ... I know of one on the video "Pocket Power" by a Norwegian magician called Jarle Leirpoll.
No TT used clean and well presented.

I saw him do a lecture in Oslo for the Nowegian Magic circle and it was his opening trick.

Just to clarify...are you "freely" showing your hands empty (front and back, between the fingers) as in the TT versions?

Many people (including Larry Jennings and John Lovick) have published handlings of no-gaff bill switches. Whether or not your handling is exactly the same or an improvement, I can't say without seeing it, but the principle has been around for ages--longer than the switches WITH the TT.

Look for Lovick's book on the bill switch. It should be coming out in the near future.

I have my own handling, that meets the criteria. It's actually easier to do than one that requires a tip. When done correctly, the audience should be convinced that only one bill was used.

I believe there was a switch by Hiro Sakai printed up either in Genii or Magic about a year ago that uses a paperclip that works quite well.

There is an English dealer called Merlins Magic http://www.merlinswakefield.co.uk
and I believe that they sell the manuscript for a version with no TT but I am not sure what it is called. check out the website and see if you can find it.
