Café Members,

If you would be so kind, please share your picks regarding a good bill to impossible location routine. Preferably one that resets easily or instantly. Thank you for your time.

Regards,
Nate

Thanks for the recommendations. I will look into these.

I know it's not a bank note, but card to wallet is on my set list. Any recommendations for bill to pen type routines, etc? The only ones that I have heard of are Cramped by Richard Sanders and Sharp Money by Ben Williams. Has anyone used these table hopping and how did it go?

Regards,
Nate

Ben Williams seems to be a real nice guy and a creator of very strong effects indeed, but for me, I would choose Cramped as being easier, less 'finicky' and more 'bullet proof'. I think (especially with a bit of 'mental programming' after) the spectator would remember a simillar impact as well..

This is just my opinion, others may disagree (I own both effects).

PS Also check out John Carey's BTB (bill to box) on the excellent 'Hndle with Carey' DVD, or Chris Congrieve's 'Well Lit' (card or bill to lighter) as a simple, instant reset effect

If your looking for a bill to pen type routine it doesn't get any better than Richard Sanders effect Cramped Smile

The number of lemons depends on the venue and whether or not someone tries to do it at EVERY table, which would be an odd choice. However, I've frequently done Bill to Lemon table-hopping and averaged around nine lemons in an evening. They're tax-deductible, you know.

While there are members who have far more experience with this effect category than I do, one version which has served me well for a number of perfomances is Anywhere Bill 2 by Ken Driscoll. You have one "move" at the very beginning, but even before your audience knows the effect has begun, the dirty work is done. After that it's pure performance. There are more involved and probably more impressive routines out there, but for less than $10, you can't go wrong. I recommend it. BTW: It plays exactly as described. Check it out:

One routine that I recall, from the early Magic Menu days, is a routine that I believe was Jim Sisti's. It involved a bill switch and the bill ends up changing places with another bill in a change purse. The bill that is supposed to appear in the purse could be signed. It used a T.T., although many magicians won't need one to achieve the effect. The reset would be quick.

I do Chop at my restaurant residency, I don't do it at every table for obvious reasons but I probably do it 5-7 times in 2 hours.
Reset is very quick.

Dan Harlan has got a bill to pen on his Premium Blend DVD set which is also featured on the Minotaur - The Final issue, I think it might be called Bill-Ink but I might be wrong.

Transmutation. I wouldn't have remembered, but recently was browsing thru Year 1.
