Do you mean that if I change from a lower currency bill to a higher one, I have to destroy a bill?
If I do a paper to bill, then I do not need to waste a bill?
Thanks.

You DO NOT HAVE to destroy any bill at all.
Everything is included to make the gimmick.

TWENTY FIVE EUROS? I'll stick with Bill Breaker by Bizzaro and TT transformations.
How many magicians does it take to change a lightbulb? Regardless, for magicians darkness is a time for d'lite.

With Mr. Chatelain not always "what you see is what you get", let's hope this time there are not more surprises.

The demo video shows you exactly what you can do!
Nothing simpler, just fold the ticket 3 times ...

If you're trying to say it's expensive, look at Money by Lloyd Barnes, Extortion by Patrick Kun, Five by Xeon Steel, Devlin Dollar, etc.
That product is not cheap, it's not expensive either, compared to other product of that kind.

You DO need to supply 2 of your own bills, 3 if you want to change to other than $1 to $5.
(Still good though.)

Money Switch – Mickael Chatelain

Product description : We know Mickael Chatelain because of his many gimmicks with cards, he is one of the most prolific creator out there. This time, he tried to change a little bit by creating a trick with money, bills. The idea is very simple, you show a 10€ bill and, within 3 simple moves, you change it to a 20€ bill ! So is there a need for a gimmicked version of this when a tt can do almost the same ? Let’s find out !

Price and where to buy it : This is sold at $29.95 and you can find it in nearly every Murphy's magic « partner » shop !

What you get : You get the usual ziplock bag, which is very common with the newest Mickael’s release. I’m sure he could do a nice little packaging but no, just a ziplock bag and a printed piece of paper to show the trick. Inside, you will find a piece of paper with the link for the explanation video, it’s shot in a very simple way but the instructions are well made so you can build your gimmick easily. The gimmicks are quite well made, nothing to worry about, you get enough gimmick to make 2 main gimmicks. Overall, I’m pretty happy with this, you have to do some Art & Craft but at the end, it’s still very easy to make. The visual of the trick is very impressive. For $30, I would say I’m happy with it.

Teaser : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w4s7ifjKQ1U

The pros and the cons : Here is the core of my review, let's begin with the cons, as I will usually be doing, I prefer to keep the good things for the end.

THE CONS :
– The packaging could have been better, I know it’s not a lot but still, some efforts have to be made.
– The bill is not instantly examinable, you have to switch for another one in order to give it to your spectator.
– The explanation video could have been better too, it’s not much again but when we see other company which are doing incredible work for their video, it’s sad to see other don’t really care about it.
– People can’t be behind you when you do the change.

THE PROS :
– The gimmick is really easy to make, even if you’re not good at Art&Craft, the material provided looks durable. You will be able to make the gimmick in minutes.
– It’s a very visual changing bill routine, the fact that you only do 3 moves during the routine is quite interesting because nothing is hidden or behind your hand at any time.
– You can change bills which are different in size but it must be first a small one then a big one. That’s the fact with the 10€ and 20€. I do think we can change bill of the same size.
– It’s very easy to do, if you can fold a bill, you will be able to do Money Switch in seconds.
– You can change anything into anything, from newspaper, bills, receipt.. Your imagination is the only limit.
– You don’t have to destroy any bill during the making of the gimmick, if you use rubber cement, you will be able to separate the gimmick in order to get back your bills !
– You don’t use a TT in this trick, so your hands are clean but not the bills.
– The reset is quite quick but not instant, you could do it in front of the spectators, if you hide the bill behind your hand.

Overall rating : It’s a good trick, the transformation is very visual, it’s easy to do but I do not think this will replace my change with a TT, mainly because I can borrow and hand out the bill, 3/4 hearts.

As for the difficulty level, if you know how to fold a bill, it shouldn’t be a problem for you, I would say 2/5 stars.

Similar products : The $100 bill change is still the best IMO, in the same “kind” of gimmick, you can check Mark Lavelle Changeling

I can hand mine out and Its completely examinable with barely any thought you can make this a 10 times better version than Nic Einhorns one which I say very loosely but to be fair so does Nic as his in the corner which is as old as the hills ? I love this effect and I think is better than all TT versions as too much folding is involved in those and for that type of version Jay Scott Berrys lightening switch Is the best imho , regards Tarik,😊
