Looking at getting one of these, and would like some input regarding pros & cons of each: skill level requirements, simplicity, angles, etc.
Thank you in advance for your help! Smile

I have extreme burn 2.0 , it works very good but only for US dollars.
The skill level is not difficult but you have to practice it.
The angle is good .

Extreme Burn 2 gives many different ways of doing the change. With some of them angles are a problem but with others it's all but angle proof. It's not hard to do at all but as the previous poster stated it requires practice to make it smooth. It gets great reactions from laymen & you can spend a few of the bills after the change if you like. The only problem I have with it at all is you can't really carry the bills in a hip pocket wallet for long without messing up the gimmick.

EB 2 can be done with any currency provided the currency can be folded in half, and they are the same size, and the colors of the edges are close.
As far as I know, those are the only 3 limitations.

Hope it's not too late to pitch in my opinion--I just recently made the transition from Hundy 500 to Extreme Burn and I am never going back. I would fumble a lot with the Hundy gimmick, and the transformation is so much cleaner and more visual with Extreme Burn--it's given me the confidence to use this trick daily.

I noticed that after carrying my EB2 in my wallet after about a month, that the outline of the gimmick could be clearly seen. I'm not sure how one would fix this issue other than not carrying it in ones wallet. thoughts?

Hey lunatik, I wouldn't worry about it too much. They shouldn't have much time looking at it anyway. You should be fine. Don't run when no one is chasing; we all get magician's guilt!

I agree with Jeff.
In the instructions, it says to not apply rubber cement near the outline of the gimmick. This way, you have an air cushion around the gimmick and the outline is not noticeable.

Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pXpxc--2sdI Hundy.... EB is a legit addition to the plot but it seems to me more like WE notice it a lot more than Laymen.

Hey all, IMO, EB 2.0 is the way to go. I like Greg Wilson and Richard Sanders. Greg more, hands down BUT the EB is way better. I started with Hundy, then EB the EB 2.0. In fact, I just used my EB gimmick to pay for some beer and vokda at the grocery store and blew the clerks out of the water.

You can remake the bills if they start to show too much. It's not big deal and doesn't cost you anything more then a few pennies of rubber cement since you recycle the old bills.

There a way more changes and they are more visual in EB then with Hundy.

EB 2.0 all the way.
This is the one effect that lives in my wallet.

EB 2 seems to work with UK 10 pounds bills and 5 euro bills, anyone has experienced?

never tried it. Are 5 euro notes and 10 pound now the same size?

I've never used EB 2 as Scottish bank notes are all different sizes and borders are different colours.

Hm 10 pound:142mm x 75mm , 5 euro: 120 × 62. Big difference if you ask me.

But some are very close indeed and more or less same colortype.
For instance 10 pound 142 x 75 and 50 euro 140 × 77 that may work and both are orangy brown.

Will look into this, thanks for the tip.
