The trailer shows the changes quite clearly:

"JM is the first creator in history, that has taken the concept of the multiple bill change and put it DIRECTLY in the spectators hand! JM is one of the best teachers in magic I have ever seen. And First Hand is the best !@#$%^! bill change on the market..PERIOD!" - Craig Petty - (Wizard product review)

Thanks. Do you think it get more reactions than Extreme Burn?

I've used Pat page's Easy Money, Richard Sanders' Slow Burn, Extreme Burn and the Extreme Burn 2.0. All visual, eye candy magic. First Hand gets superior reactions. Maybe because the magic happens in their hands.

That's my experience.

Anyone had any trouble handing a spectator 4 hundred dollar bills? That would be my only concern.

Re bill magic in 2012:

You've probably already seen this, but Magic Magazine has a series by Greg Wilson called "The Almighty Dollar" where, each month, he presents a different bill effect. Sometimes it's a variation on a well-known effect, like the June issue adding to the presentation of Pat Page's Easy Money-type effect. I'm enjoying the series a lot.

It looks like the series started in the Jan 2012 issue. In that article (a bill switch), he says how, as he gets older, his dry hands can't remove the bill from the "gimmick" without licking the thumb first-). I sympathize.... same problem.

I wouldn't be too surprised to see these articles (and maybe his previous series on coffeebar magic) collected in a book someday; they're pretty good and imaginative.

We've got a great card trick that uses a bill for a color change under test-conditions over at TRCKY.com.

It's called Change 4 A Twenty by Adam Ryan. Check it out here: http://www.trcky.com/catalog/change-4-a-twenty.html

I would think this would cause big problems, the demo has a camera and lights on the people, if you are in a bar with $400, you better have a body guard with you. Then there is the problem, that you actually gave the money to the person. If you put it in their hands, that is viewed as giving them the money.

So don't be surprised if you the showing of this trick costs you 4 large. There is nothing that can make them give the money back to you.

Good visual trick, but there could be a lot of problems doing this as in the demo video. Just sayin.

CINCH was released in 2012 I believe.
I don't own it, but I've heard good things.
I wouldn't buy it, but thought you might be interested.

Thanks guys.

Cinch is very good IMO. It's not a quick-change bill switch but it is very effective. Single bills only.
