This looks great. Wondering if it comes with all necessary as in video?

His ad copy says that unlike Hundy 500 and Extreme Burn where you have to ‘make it up’, Ten Grand Prix comes gift-wrapped and ready to go right out of the package. He doesn’t remove or give away any of the bills in the trailer, but he also offers ‘Switch Out Packs’ of fake hundo’s so you can switch out the stack so it can be examined or to give away bills from it. They aren’t included with the regular effect. The gimmicked pack included in the effect does come with the paper bill wrappers (blue for the $1’s & yellow for the $100s), but the gimmicked pack of bills is not examinable.

I’m not sure what you think may not be included?
But it is my understanding that it comes ready to go straight out of the package.

Maybe DJT will chime in and confirm or clarify?

I don’t really want to carry around a giant stack of bills and change looks a bit jerky, but looks pretty good.

That’s true about carrying the large stack of bills around. Doesn’t look like they’d fit in most wallets, does it? 😃

Hmm, think about it, the main prop, I was purposely trying not to be too specific.

Well, again, it says ready to go out of the box. Doesn’t mention having to supply anything yourself.
If I got this and found out I even had to supply a single crisp one dollar bill myself I’d demand a refund on principle alone.

OK, I went ahead and got this and I really like it. And I have to admit dooblehorn that I’m still not clear on what you were referring to when you said the “main prop” but I can assure you that every single thing is included and ready to go straight out of the box.

I know many people are going to prefer the old tried and true bill changes such as Extreme Burn and no doubt that those are great. I’m not saying that this is going to replace EB, but there is something about an entire large stack of bills changing that just appeals to me. And I don’t consider this to just be a quick gag type of effect. DJT has put some clever thinking into this and I believe this is much more of a fooler than you might think at first glance.
The bills are very realistic too.

Not cheap but DJT had these custom made and for what all you get plus the gimmick and everything ready to go requiring no A&C on your part, I think it is a very fair price.

Hey gang,

Thanks for the questions. I have been busy making these up to ship out. They are made by hand.. my hands. Ten Grand Prix comes ready to go straight out of the package. You'll want to break it in and practice of course. I carry this in my professional work. I wear a suit jacket and place the stack of bills into one of the inside pockets. You could put a fake hundo or a real hundred dollar bill on the back of the stack to pass out or to lead into another effect. http://djtyler.com/product/ten-grand-prix/ I don't release things that I haven't tried 1000s of times on a real lay audience. http://djtyler.com/product/ten-grand-prix/

This looks very nice but about 8 months ago I quit using PayPal I was wondering if this will be available at Hocus Pocus or some place that accounts are already set up with?

Good magic to all,

How durable are the ringers? How do they feel?

They are surprisingly durable. However this is not something you would hand out. Who in their right mind would hand anyone a supposed stack of $10,000 in hundreds? It makes logical sense to put it away after performing the effect. I do the effect right under peoples noses in broad daylight or in an indoor strolling or stand-up setting. Due to the visual nature of the effect it lends itself well to social media. Plus, the subject of money is always topical.

This trick is exclusive through me and I have no plans currently to alter that business decision. I have got 1000 man hours into this and selling them wholesale or at jobber price is not appealing to me right now.

So if you do not have PayPal then you can pay by Venmo, credit card or check.

Looks great! Would also look good with foreign currency, especially if it changed colours. From fivers to fifties in Canada would go blue to red, but the polymer material would be a challenge to duplicate

This makes me happy you say this, because I know you are as picky as I am, LOL...I like DJT stuff, so may order soon.

Thank you for the kind review.

Doing this with foreign currency has crossed my mind. This effect will not work with most foreign notes due to the paper and different size of denominations.

Most magicians have no idea the expense that I put up front to make this product. For all of the man hours, customization, and hand assembly that goes into making each one of these I should charge $100 for each one.
However I always try to keep my price as low as possible.

I just ordered this as well and I could tell you one thing Jim is a real good guy to talk to and I'm sure I will be ordering more items that peaked my interest on his website.
I will definitely post on here when it comes in and I've had a chance to work with it but I'm pretty excited about this looks great.

Good magic to all,


Eric
