[b]Real Pen-etration by Alan Rorrison[/b]
This is Alan Rorrisonís impromptu bill penetration effect and itís really good. Interestingly enough, not much has been said about it on the Cafť which surprises me as so many people seem to be looking for astonishing impromptu effects. If youíre looking for a really strong, completely impromptu bill penetration, you should definitely check it out.
When I first saw Alanís demo for Misleading Mislead, he did it as the traditional Mislead two phase effect. While I really liked Misleading Mislead, the first phase completely fried me. He simply folded the bill, put the pen between the folds, bent down the front of the bill to show that the pen was really in there and then proceeded to very cleanly push it right through the center of the bill, leaving it completely unharmed. It just looked so clean.
I finally got around to purchasing the effect. It works how you might think it works but the subtleties are what make it so good. The effect is very simple and completely impromptu. The handling does require some finesse but once you get it down, youíve got a very nice little miracle on your hands.
While I like other versions of impromptu pen through dollar, what I really like about this one is that there are no extra folds or unnecessary moves. You simply fold the bill and stick the pen through it. You canít get more direct than that. The only downside is that it cannot be done completely surrounded.
As a bonus, Alan teaches you another variation that, as he says, gives the effect a second phase of Mislead feel. Itís not the second phase (thatís Misleading Mislead) but it is a really interesting and different take on the effect.
The instructional download costs $9.00 and is available at http://www.alanrorrison.tk. It runs about 7 minutes.
BTW, Alan is a great guy and a pleasure to do business with.
