I'm gonna take the plunge later and see what it's like, hopefully not as bad as change but we'll see.....

Just watched the trailer. What's the point of that effect? It's insane.. It's bad.. Perhaps if you have another video for me to see? So I can change my mind. Please..

P.S. This is the link http://www.ellusionist.com/iris-by-lloyd-barnes.html


I think you are just looking at this effect all wrong...tilt your screen by 20° and it will change to a much better effect. Smile

You're a brave man, Kieran. I'll be curious to hear what you have to say.

Clearly the Change debacle had an effect on them, since the ad copy clearly states it is not the same gimmick. I hope that phrase is in all of their future releases.

Really looking forward to hands on reviews of this. Maybe this could turn into something you could combine into a longer bill and card routine with multiple phases. I'm going to be hugely optimistic, but also wait for other people to spend their hard earned bucks on it before I inevitably become intoxicated and buy it late at night.

I don't see the issue here. It isn't the same gimmick. This is what it is - I just don't know how an audience would react to this ?

To be fair, although it's spoilt by Lloyd having his paws cover the card in the most obvious way near the beginning and the somewhat ham-fisted switch, visually it looks okay.

Of course that's on camera and is no guarantee of what it looks like for real.

If somehow he can move the bill while the bill passing through the card-- even a couple millimeters is enough. Or, holding the bill and the card with one hand and flap the bill to show that the bill passing through the card. Then I'm sold. IMO, that'd be the biggest flaw of the effect. It's not very impressive to me. Just like a rough idea put into a product.

I went to purchase this but the international postage is $7.95 with a 6-8 week wait, f###k that!! With the gimmick being "light" and if it is "flat" like I think it is then why can't they do a flat pack free postage like penguin....

Penguin can ship flat packs for free , I wonder why they can't ...

Wow, pretty harsh criticism. I understand coming right off of Change that people will be super critical because a lot of people feel they got burned; but some comments are just mean.



Maybe if E would have bucked up and admitted their mistakes and not criticized others so arrogantly these comments would not have been so mean.


I Have to give Lloyd Barnes credit though for standing behind his own product and really uploading some real life performance videos after all the criticism.

I was not happy with my change gimmick and I think it is way too impractical for most environments but I respect him for backing up all his claims about the product by uploading a real life performance video.

Although I didn't jump on the bash Change bandwagon, I'd love to see the additional live performance videos. Where are they posted, if you don't mind me asking?
It's amazing, people will criticize you for "biting the hand that feeds you," while they're busy praising the hand that beats them.

Here it is! https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CuImhGEAsnk

Shall we back on the Iris trick now, please Smile Anybody else care to take it and review it? I still stand on my opinion that this trick lacks on depth. It's just still too rough. Maybe a new video live footage or new angle of trailer could change my mind on this trick?

Thank you for the live video performance. This one is much more better than the trailer video. Especially the pull down motion. A few millisecond slower than what I saw in the trailer, making it more convincing. I think for a bar performance where's the lighting is a bit dim this is quite flashy and quick opener effect where after you finish you've got borrowed money on your hand and you can continue to your next performance. Nice one!
