Hi,

I am currently using a bill switch from Darwin's Encyclopedia of tt magic. It's actually the only one I know. I'm just curious if anyone has a better method? As a bartender there is nothing better than having a customer tip you a buck; then changing it to a hundred.

I'd strongly recommend getting "Switch--Unfolding the $100 Bill Change" by John Lovick.

It is as complete a treatise on the effect as can be created, I think. It includes both TT and tipless switches, fascinating history, mis-made and TnR work, as well as many full routines.

It will give you more than enough to find the one that is right for you.

Since you are a bartender, you may want to turn right to Scotty York's "Change For a Twenty" which has wonderful motivation, and gets beyond the "Do you change the bill back or not" debate. You can also find Bill Malone's Bill In Lemon in there as well--easily worth the price of admission.

Check out "Visibill" by Richard Sanders too, it teaches some good varations as well as his Double bill switch...Richard is an excellent teacher and an innovator of the art of magic. https://www.elmwoodmagic.com/?key=1387&nd=showvideo

Another vote for switch and a tipless change. So much cleaner and completely impromptu...

I'll 2nd that...Front Row Sankey begins with a great application of this version...

I use Kevin King's method as well.

I would like to look into other methods but it seems that this one is pretty good.

The first one I learned and the only one I know, now that I think of it, is the one that Jay Sankey teaches in the video very best of JS Vol 2. I think is the universal one isn't it?

I also use the one on Darwin's. Daniel Garcia has one called Twisted and he does it tipless.

I learned the switch from Michael Ammar's fabulous book, "The Magic of Michael Ammar". In his version, the bill NEVER leaves the sight of the spectator, thanks to a clever subtlety as well as making it much easier to open the bill. I see so many bill switches where the bill disappears from view for a few seconds. That just screams "He's doing something". Ammar's book is a SUPER RESOURCE.

I like Jay Scott Berry's version using a cloaking device. If you have a topit, you can toss it in there and show completely empty hands easily.

The two best, I think, are Money Morph (Kevin King) amd Visi-Bill (Richard Sanders). I use them both depending on what the plot of the bill change calls for.

I like Sankey's "$0 Bill Switch". Great reactions.

Appreciate the suggestions given to ChicagoMike's question re the bill switch.

Now I've found out about 11 "best" items in this category. Some posts added a thought on the effect beyond just a name and creator, these are most helpful. As a newbie more explaination as to why a particular effect strikes someone as being the "best" would be appreceiated. (I know, I know, do my own homework. Hey, the Magic Forum is homework)

I've used them all, but if I'm chatting & doing a casual lead-in--and don't have to worry too much about angles--I prefer the Juan Hundred Dollar Bill Switch or Sean Field's Infinity Switch.

Been playing with Lonnie Chevrie's TT bill switch. Liking it too. The folds are a little easier to make with a borrowed bill that hasn't been prefolded yet.

I use Kevin King's,there are a lot of good ones out there. Pick one & learn to do it well. As mentioned the book Switch is a great place to start.

My copy came in the mail today ! I'm excited.
