Has anyone seen this effect or had a chance to play with it pre-release? Just out from Jota. It looks clean and pretty versatile.

I had seen it a couple days ago. Looks to be a pretty useful effect. But you could probably construct something similar at home for similar results.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

Thank you. I haven’t seen it live, but that was what I was inclined to think.

A switch very similar to this, but no gimmick, is given in Paul Harris' AOA.

A problem of doing such a switch is that you need to make sure your bill and the specs have roughly the same level of wear/wrinkles. I got busted for this, once.

This is just a copy of an old card effect that uses a special wallet.

Nothing new, but I don't care for this handling, as shown in the demo video. Why would you the performer hold the wallet, while the spectator marks the post it.

Here is a copy of the original wallet version from the 1970's. Can't buy from them, as this is the Jobber/wholesale only company.

I agree with Bill, it tends to feel awkward for someone else to be holding an object that someone else is to sign, or just taking the bill and then giving it back..

Howsomeever, I don't think that aspect of the handling is necessary to the trick(meaning there are other ways to motivate the motions). It would probably be better to have a different motivation for taking the bill, and then giving it back to them (to sign or not, to write the SN or not)
