I love doing bill switch/changes effects but I'm always not to confident with the angles even if you pull it in, what if your completely surrounded?

Extreme Burn (with $20's) works well in the cashier line -- if your total is over $5. Smile

Extreme Burn is one of my favorites.
I keep it in my Fire wallet all the time along with Power Ball 60 and Wallet Transformer and a few other things that don't bulk up my wallet.

I posted “More On Mismade Bill” this month on the Perverse Magic thread of the Genii Forum.

The switch I suggest may be useful to some at appropriate times.

Does anyone have footage of them doing the bill switch completely surrounded? I would love to see.

It is always a treat for anyone, even if they see behind the scenes. I always have to remind myself only about 15% of the population has ever scene magic live and in person. I probably off on percentage but it is very low. It is always a pleasure for real fans of magic.

Great job I will try to get a video of me doing TT change.

Thanks man I would love to see someone surrounded. Because when I'm preforming I'm surrounded almost 360 degrees.

Does anybody do the bill switch with Jay Scott Berry's cloaking device instead of a TT? It seems like the CD is more convincing than TT for this particular effect.

To answer your question, learnt is more common in Britain and learned is more common in America. Both are correct.

I wish I had the guts to make more mistakes. I would be a lot better magician by this point. You are going to get caught sooner or later, may as well learn from it sooner.


Thanks for clearing that up.
I've seen it spelled both ways.

I had a cashier take a crisp £1 note recently (they went out of circulation in 1984 and she was born in 1997!) When asked why she accepted it she explained that she thought they were a new fangled thing and that she thought they were a great idea!

My 20 yr.old son and his friends were sitting around, and I levitated a plastic cup between my hands on my thumb. (The old kids trick. lol.) While the girls all oooh'd and aaww'd, my son's buddy was seated to my right and could see the whole thing. I kind of glanced over at him, and to his credit, he just sat there smiling and shaking his head like I was an idiot lol. but he never said a word.
I was impressed that at his young age, he was wise enough to allow others to enjoy it without feeling the need to shout something out.

There is a technique described for surrounded with the TT, the tt is held in deep finger palm in left hand which is also shaking the bills for the change to happen. it s a quick jerk and can t be perceived

Mr. Nielsen, 100 percent true. The bill switch with a Sanada is much cleaner and there are fewer folds and way better angles than with a
TT. It is also much simpler to perform. It is time for the magic fraternity to catch up with a more practical and magical Bill Switch, IMHO.

This topic reminded me of a time that a very similar thing happened to me. I was performing, didn't have my hands in close enough evidently and when I was done, I saw some guys behind me smiling and about to divulge. I sort of played it off with a smile and a finger on my lips, and as far as I recall, they didn't reveal too much. If you aren't so eager to keep them quiet, but instead lowkey, the people who saw how it was done will sort of understand the position they are in.

I've never tried a Bill Switch with a Sanada. It seems like the pocket load would be a bit too big for me, and that it might be too awkward. Something to consider though.

It is possible to show both sides of the bill and the hands empty, without using a gimmick. For over a decade, well-read magicians assumed I used a TT, when I wasn't. You do have to make sure you have their full attention at the critical points.

For performing surrounded, I'd use something like the "Crossing the Gaze".
