I have used mine twice in a working environment, and have gotten great response. I will be picking up a few more, perhaps the variety bulk-pack, as it gives me a great impromptu magical effect.

Still using this. It's definitely a keeper! Can't wait till the bulk pack comes out!

Has anyone been able to find anything on Dave Devin's "Big 1". I can't find even a reference anywhere. Dave,can you give any info on this, and a head's up when the 'Stretch a Bucks' multi-denominations become available.

I am not familiar with this version, but would like a source for it.

Fulves' Self Working Paper Magic has a way to prepare a regular dollar to truly stretch. I also bought a specially prepared bill (w/a very elaborate set of cuts) that also stretches. Yet, as already noted, these items need to be handled with great care - the tyvex approach seems a good way to go.

You mean it actually stretches? As in the paper is perhaps soaked in some special solution that alters the composition so that it is possible?

I think if they would correct the problem, they might find me more of a willing customer.

The length of the bill actually elongates when pulled, and then contracts when let go of. Its not that the paper itself is stretching, but with the cuts, you could say that the holes are growing in size. Its analogous to a "betcha" where you can cut a postcard size of paper so that you can walk through it, the paper itself doesn't stretch, but it is reoriented/rearranged in a way that makes it seem like that.

In any event, with the method I mentioned, the spectator could see (if close enough) the holes and that the bill was cut.

Understood. So pretty much this method is probably only suited for stage.

I like most that have posted about the stretch a bill can't hardly wait for the "Pro Pack" to come out. To be able to switch out 5 different denominations that everybody uses is exciting. I have the stretch a bill and like others that have posted am amazed at the reaction I receive when I do this. All the hours of practice doing other effects and they want me to keep stretching my money.

I now pause and wait after I stretch the bill to have a lot of fun before going to the next performance. Love doing this effect for waiters and waitresses. They always bring out their co workers to have me show them. Gets a lot of attention from other tables at this point.

Hurry with the Pro Pack Dave. LOL

Your experience parallels mine! It kind of overshadows my other effects. They don't care about my cards they just want me to stretch my bucks!

I too, am waiting for this this new expanded pack be released! It will really open up new world's of possibility!

C'mon, Dave!

My understanding is that they the name will be eliminated from the new batch. Great idea!

I know it's a small detail, but small details count, and I never liked that stamp of his name on the bill.

Actually, because they are so durable (Tyvek) You only really need one of each denomination and you can use that over and over again.

Is this guy using the same dollar we are talking about??? See the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arHq-L86ISc

I would appreciate your thoughts, is this the same bill that's being talked about in this thread? Thanks!

Mike
