I love this trick and it plays well. The problem that I'm having that is actually starting to hurt the performance is the way I carry the bills. I figured that a money clip seemed perfectly logical until the bills became a bit too creased and would interupt the displays and moves. I like to carry this trick on me because it's perfect if someone just wants to see a trick. But, this seems to be a problem for me. How does everyone carry their bills? Wallet? Money clip? Loose in the pocket?

I find that it screws the bills up (folding, etc.) when I carry it in my wallet, but it works out just fine carrying it around in my back pocket. I guess it gives the effect that it comes from my wallet while keeping the folds crisp.

I always carry it in a money clip, I have never had a problem.

I keep mine in my Real Man's Wallet (Steve Draun) along with other real money. No problems with the gimmick.

I also use a money clip and have no problems but the tension on my clip is soft. I can see how a very tight clip would be a problem. One suggestion is go to a magnetic clip but being careful how you place the EB money in the clip.

An off topic note, but don't get it wet! I got my wallet wet and a few days later the gimmick was rusting through the bill! Easy clean up and made a new one.

I carry mine in a money clip. But it's a leather clip with magnets in each side. Holds everything just right.

I carry mine in a metal tension clip and have no problems with it.

Sorry if this seems silly, but I'd say don't clip it by the folded edge, clip it my the loose edges. That way the clip won't further damage the bills at the crease.

I took 4 playing cards and glued 2 pair together with a small magnet between each. I then hinged them at the bottom with tape so it forms into a large money clip. It holds it very well and protects almost all of it.

Does anyone have a suggestion for making the hundy 500 gimmick if you are left handed?

Careful with carrying the EB gimmick around. I had mine in my wallet and it must have fallen out one day, because right now I am $126 poorer...

The same way as if you were right handed. The gimick is made in such a way that it should work from either hand.

I carry the Extreme Burn stash in my jacket pocket, but I have also carried it in the back pocket of my jeans. I think both of those were fine -- in fact, I think keeping it my jeans for a while helped make it a bit softer and more natural-looking.

However, I accidentally spilled coffee on it, and it hasn't quite been the same since. I'll probably remake it soon. (Really want to use 20s but still can't quite afford it.)

I use Tony Millers Modifier Wallet as a money clip and have Extreme Burn in it and carry it in my side pocket. I can do a a card to wallet routine and then pull Extreme Burn out and go right into that.

In my regular wallet I carry 3D Cash. In a strolling situation, after doing Extreme Burn a number of times and being asked to do it one more time, I pull out 3D cash instead and go from $1s to $10s to $100s. For those that had just seen Extreme Burn, this kicks them in the head and catches them completely off guard.

In the back of a checkbook inside a jacket is the only way to go for me! I do EB with $606.00, so I can't take any chances with losing it! Plus the book keeps them perfect!

I would however, like to eventually have a one stop shop for all my paper money gimmicks. When I say all, I have about 10 that I do, and would like them to be easily obtainable. Any recommendations out there?

PS. To hold some gaffed coins wouldn't hurt as well...

Another idea - one of those plastic wallets usually used for packet tricks.

It's cheap, protects the EB setup, and fits fine in your back pocket, etc.

I just carry mine folded in my Jardonet fire wallet on the side opposite the fire. It works just fine. I have been carrying it this way for over 9 months. I use this as my everyday wallet. I even set the wallet on fire while extreme burn is in the wallet (and all my other cash, credit cards, etc.)! The only issue I had was setting the wallet on fire in a windy situation. It did sear the ends of the EB hundreds that were stowed in the wallet. No big deal. Just changed them out at the bank. I do replace the bill that covers the special part every 3 or 4 months, just to keep things fresh.

I keep it basic and ready to use. I carry it in my shirt breast pocket. It's always ready to go, reach in and take it out. Nobody has ever questioned why I carry money in my shirt pocket.
