I bought this tape a few years ago when it came out. I did not care for anything on it even though the reviews were good.

Koslowski's $100 bill switch orginally came with instructions to do the switch without the gimmick.

I will have to look at the tape again and see why I did not care for it.

Leirpolls Bill Switch is Koslowski's $100 Bill Switch as he mentions on his tape "Pocket Power". As a matter of fact they may be the same, as it has been some years since I have read the original manuscript.

After reviewing the tape again, I would say that it is the same bill switch without the TT, as mentioned previously, this is discribed in the original manuscript.

Personally, I do not find anything that interesting on the tape, as I originally purchased it for the toilet paper to egg idea. Not very powerful. Then his idea for liquid in newspaper. His idea of using shoe leather waterproofing liquid, I did not care for either.

I would have to say to save your money on this tape. There are some tips for beginners in magic that may be of interest.

Slightly off topic, but I have his Pocket Power book and I really enjoyed the stuff on misdirection. (One of my many weaknesses.)

As far as the bill change is concerned, I don't normally carry my TT around so it's nice for an imprompto bill change.

So how did the 'showdown' go?

Anyone ever do the Jennings' Bill Switch from [i]The Classic Magic of Larry Jennings[/i]? No TT used and it's quite practical. I hardly ever see anyone mention it anywhere.

When I developed my switch, I used Roger Klause's fold. I also used the Leirpoll handling to show me that a type of equipment was needed to convincingly show the hands empty. Since the equipment used in his routine wasn't natural for me to do, I developed my own. I've been doing my handling since the mid-90s and it has served me well, even when spectators burn my hands.

The Leirpoll Switch is good to start with, as is the Roger Klause switch (from Ammar's Encore 3), that uses a tip. Then you can distill the best features from the switches and develop your own.
