Hello all,
I had alook around on this thread and could not find any answers so....
This is what it's supposed to look like,
I borrow two fives, rip them in half and supply the assistants with half of there bill.
These are the paramaters
-close up or parlour trick
-No thumbtip allowed
-both bills are torn together at the same time
-The halfs they acutaly recieved are extras already palmed in my right hand before I begin

This is the problem;
I'm looking for a method that looks good up close. It's just the handling of the tear and immediatly handing out two halfs. I know John Carney has an excellent switch, but it is for one bill and would not work here I believe. Can anyone tell me where I can find a good handling for this move?

Harry Andersons buffolo Bill Routine would work, the switch If I remember right is straight out of Bo Bo coin magic.

Check out Michael Ammar's "Bill to Nut" on Easy to Master Money Miracle vol. 3 or his Easy to Master Lecture notes. I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but he tears two bills and gives each assistant half of their bill, and there's no need for extra bills.

You got something against TT? heh.

You could just do a false transfer, and go in your pocket for an invisivle wand while you ditch the pieces of the $5 bill.
An amatuer practices untill he gets it right, a professinal practices untill he can't get it wrong.

Don't wait for oppurtunity to knock, throw open the door, grab it by the throat and drag it inside kicking and screaming.

Magically yours

Nothing against a thumbtip, it's just that I will be using one later- as soon as I hand back the 2 half bills I slip the preloaded thumbtip on.
Harry Anderson's handling is out of BoBo's? I don't remember any bill switches in that book - I will look for it though.

I need to do it visibly before them so a false transfer and a ditch would not work. The spectators need to get the palmed half bills back, not there own.

Thanks all, any more tips?

It may not be in Bobos but it is in Harrys book, the switch is bold yet easy and very very very deceptive. Plus his buffolo bill routine is great.

You may find it in Harry Andersons' book.
