I agree this is one of the best tricks released in a long time.

I used it myself for the first time at a wedding at the weekend and the reactions were brilliant.

I would say this is TV standard magic if there is such a thing, its visual and beyond comprehension.

We have it in stock ready to ship, don't forget to order rubber cement if you don't have any.

Wow then I'm one of the lucky birds Smile ~

Actually I did't use rubber cement though ... I just use glue stick to supplement the rubber cement , turns out it works perfectly . Not sure whether it will still stay together in a long run ... But it saves the drying time ~

I am wondering if anyone is using it in a bill in lemon or impossible location routine? Is that possible?

I just ordered this so I will soon find out if that is at all possible.

Just wondering, does anyone know where to get replacement gimmicks? I know it came with a few, and I've used other brands, but none of them have been as powerful

I sent Marc a PM a few days ago with the same question but he must be busy as he hasn't read it yet.

Hello!

I am in talks with MMS to get a cheap refill pack produced.

I would avoid buying from third parties, as wont be the same, even if they manage to get the same size, and thickness, the strength needs to be just right, otherwise it will either have a really loud click, or it won't connect at all! (also needs to be the perfect weight!)

I literally went through hundreds of them before I found the 'perfect' one!

An effect for the changeling , agreat way to switch notes!
To start the trick have the changeling gimmick in your back trouser pocket.
Take a five pound note for the English version or any lower dominate bill in other currency and ask the spectator to examine it.Take the bill back and ask the spectator if they have a 10 pound note,a higher dominate bill in other currency.Begin to fold the five pound note the same way as the changeling gimmick and ask the spectator to copy you and fold the ten pound note the same way.You take the two notes and begin to mix them around and you tell the spectator that you are going to put one note in your back trouser pocket and the other note in the opposite back trouser pocket,in doing this you pretend to do it behind your back but you really put the two notes in the same back trouser pocket the one opposite the changeling gimmick, making note which one is the five pound and 10 pound.You ask the spectator this is kind of a lucky dip and you ask them to name any back pocket left or right.THIS IS WHERE THE MAGICIAN CHOICE COMES IN.If the changeling gimmick note was in the left back pocket and what ever pocket they choose you would simply say we will forget about the right pocket and concentrate on the note in the left pocket vise versa if it was in the right pocket.
Take the gimmick 10 pound note out of your back pocket which they think is theres and put the note in their hand and let them do the change,the change I prefer and when they open their hand up they will see it has changed into the five pound note.Let the moment sink in and ask them where they think the ten pound note has gone?You simply tell them it has teleported back into your back trouser pocket.This is why it is important to know which note is which when you put the two notes in your back trouser pocket together.Simply take their original ten pound note out of your back pocket and hand it them back.An easy way to do handle this gimmick no fumbling behind the wallet or etc and gets great reactions.

Sounds good! There are plenty of ways to make the routines suit your style!

I now actually 'set' the gimmick after folding it to match the spec's (or after folding it for whatever other reason.)

That way you can casually display both sides of both folded notes before you activate it. I have practiced setting it one handed and can do so with a very small gesture. Feel free to try it out! It is easier than it sounds.

Any updates on the refill pack? I would love to make some more gimmicks.

Have not heard anything yet, I'm afraid! I will try and chase it up and get an answer!

So it's clear that the bill can't be examined closely. Isn't it a problem that you can only flash both sides? If such a miracle happend in my hands, I'd want to have a second look.

Hello, although all the routines taught on the DVD are choreographed in such a way that there is no beat for them to 'examine' the bill - in the several thousands of times I have performed this at gigs and out and about, a total of 4 people have opened the bill straight away. what have they found? Nothing. Granted, I have never had a spec try and pull the bill apart. why would they? It is an every day item to them! Especially when they think it is THEIR money! (they wouldn't try and pull their own ring apart after a ring on string/RF routine!

I don't snatch the bill off them as soon as the change has happened, I merely open and display, let it sink in as to what has happened, after that the other (their) bill has all attention drawn to it. If you feel like running without being chased, you could always switch the gimmick out. That depends on your style though!

If you perform magic to real people, and as routines, you won't have any issue.

Marc did Changeling to me at Blackpool and I freaked out! I also held the gimmicked bill in my hand for probably 3 mins because I was freaking out and I didn't even think of opening the bill. Then Marc took it away from me and opened the rest and I didn't even think about wanting to look at it again because it was already in my hands!

I can't recommend Changeling enough!
