Agreed. It looks terrific. I wonder how well the gimmick will hold up with repeated use.

Thanks Pegasus, It comes with US $1 Gimmick but can be made up with your currency. I’ve made them In Japanese Yen, British pounds and Mexican Peso’s.. they all worked great. I’d imagine Canadian money would work too, even though they have the window on their bills and un-tearable plastic.. I’d simply make it apart of the presentation.

^^^ the DIY needed for custom bills isn’t that difficult. It’s worth it and will last quite a long time once made up.

Looks similar to Deposit by Marcus Eddy, though Deposit doesn’t allow for examination of the bill by spectators.

I have deposit & for the restoration you have to wave your hand over the torn area. Revamped looks more visual the torn corner seems to just visual jump to the torn area & the bill is restored ! 40.00 though hmmm.....

Indeed. Order with caution. Would love to know how effective this is with Sterling currency in that it’s transparent and very plastic.

I took the bait and will report as soon as it arrives . . . . I have to have more things to do in my mirror and amaze myself during these COVID times . . .

Curious about this one myself wonder if it can be used with extreme burn locked and loaded

If you watch the second trailer you can figure it out (sort of) but honestly still looks great and the method that I am guessing seems quite practical. Look forward to receiving it.

Yes but my speculation is that your one hand will be dirty. Just speculating....

Someone mentioned the price above... “$40 hmmm” .... is that expensive for a handmade prop? Also your’e learning the secret that another human designed. Not Only that, if visually restoring a bill isn’t worth the price but maybe the fact that it’s completely and instantly examined?! This has never been done before and Is what give merit for release.. I think if you believe $40 is expensive for a brand new unseen effect you don’t value magic secrets and the process of creating magic.

So, Let me comment about the quoted comment above. When I said “ The bill you tear is the bill they examine” it’s essentially true.. do I actually tear a bill? No. It’s a pre torn gimmick that blends in with a normal bill, which is then removed effortlessly with nothing sticky ect utilizing my signature dismount , as seen with a few of my pre-existing products. So the bill they see torn in their mind is the bill they examine because it’s the one I was holding (Fake Tear with real torn gimmick) the entire time without ever needed to switch it before the examination. Though, if you wanted you can also borrow a bill and even though you switch and give them back a different bill, and they will have No clue.. this is a very strong route, when you borrow a bill you simply execute an under the wallet switch for your pre-set Revamp bill/gimmick, perform the effect and then give them back an entirely different bill without having to switch it again.. this being very convincing because in their eyes they seen you tear their bill and very cleanly hand it back to them without switching. Yes you’ll need to palm the gimmick which is a little bigger than a mini playing card..

An under used or thought of application with Revamp for the real workers out there: Borrow a Bill from the audience, you already need to switch the bill anyways to maybe match a serial number or something.. so switch for a Revamp setup bill.. Now you can say “I wanna make sure your bill isn’t counterfeit” proceed to tear the bill and before they know it, quick restored the bill... if someone is on the stage or standing close to you casually have them hold on to the bill (Essentially examining) while you fetch your next prop ect.. this is one of those random moments that make you seem just that much more interesting and magical.. as a magician it’s important to take advantage of any situation and also make it more interesting and magical..

Thanks NicholasLawrenceMagic. No need to defend the price. For performers it is fine IMHO. The value to me of this effect is in concert with anything else I will do with a bill. Much better as a "test" to see if the bill is real, and then vanish the entire bill and appear in lemon, or produce the serial number, etc. To that end it is an unbelievable magical moment. Thank you for joining in the convo here.
