Yes, as basically the concept is not bad. Although I could make it up for myself, I found it very cheap in France (EUR 29,00) and ordered it. Seems not to be a hit overall... Smile But it is still not with me. Jan

I don't get it your looking at the serial number when the spectator is writting on the pad. I would think later the spectator will say you saw the bill I gave you. Maybe I am missing something here ?

Reminds me of a smaller version of the Platt pad.

I ordered one too, just to see if I use a 2.5"x3"index card...

Why does no one get this?

You switch the bill, write down the serial number and then:
1. Destroy the bill only to find it in an impossible location
2. Have a previously written or "permanent" prediction be shown later to match the serial number
3. Switch the bill and don't actually write down the number but just let them keep it for verification for #2 above
4. Use this to switch the bill, serial number folded inside, hand to someone else as another spectator is directed to write something down on the post it note.
This was just off the top of my head and I don't even do mentalism...

It's probably cos you don't do mentalism...

You don't need this device, just use cassidy/osterlind technique...

... you stick far too much to what you have seen in the trailer... I even don't think of a bill (banknote).... see it as a mere switching device ... which could make sense in the right context... in an action in "transition" (Ascanio)... Smile Jan

Mine's arrived. Thankfully it works for half index card size too...

It's kinda OK! Reminds me of a locking slate...
