Ordered this today from penguin. Looks great. The price point is just right in my opinion. Iím sure the gimmick is well made and I can already tell I will use this often in my bar work. Itís a perfect visual, quick effect bar patrons and many others love. Thanks Nicholas. Canít wait to start performing this.

This does look really good and I truly love a lot of Lawrence's products and his thinking behind them. Maybe I should buy myself a Christmas 🎄 present!

Nicholas's won't release it unless it's a top shelf method. This is one of his best.

Is it just me or does the moment of the restoration, the toss looks off. It's like you are going to toss the bill from hand to hand but changes your mind last second and doesn't toss it?! For some reason, it just looks off to me.

The last restoration in the demo is done with one hand, no tossing. So you can chose not to toss it if you don't want to.

Itís not for everybody, I learned long ago you canít please everyone. Keep in mind this is a manually powered gimmick and that allows you to get creative on how you handle the tear and restoration. I didnít teach this but for the more mysterious handling you can just wave your had past the tear.. just another alternative handling.

Nicolas, thank you for participating here and giving us color on what looks fantastic. V generous of you. Itís on my short list.
If you donít mind me asking, when you give the specs the g*****k and show itís fully restored do you have to take it back relatively quickly? Could they figure this out if they examined this for more than a few seconds?
Thanks and good luck with this effect.

I am pretty sure you don't hand the bill over to the spec with the g*&&^ck attached, I believe it is removed first and p*&^#d after the restoration.

I skimmed through the video last night, RNK is correct. The sneaky stuff is removed and the bill is clean when handed to the spectator.

How intensive would this be to make to gimmick in plastic polymer Canadian bills?

Itís made from movie money but I donít think a wallet would put much stress on it. On the other hand not difficult to make your own once you have the instructions

Agree
"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

Yes, this can be made with a real bill. It's detailed in the video how to make it.

I ordered this yesterday, and I watched the video. Looks like a totally solid method, and a clever, practical handling. I think I prefer the alternate restore, which looks even more magical to me. Bravo, Nicholas.

I am, however, pretty disappointed that it comes made up with a fake bill. It hasn't arrived yet, so I can't tell how well the fake bills will match real ones, but I would really much prefer to do it with real bills. I would have gladly paid the extra few bucks to cover authentic materials. It will be a shame if this cut corner is what keeps people from performing a gem of an effect.

I don't like the idea of having to clean up after right away, so I'm holding off on this for now.
But, I agree it is weird about the gimmick and the materials reportedly used on it. I wonder if the one in the trailer is the one they're selling, or if the one in the trailer is one made with real materials?

If it doesn't look close, and it's a night/day difference then they're really selling just a template at this point for you to update on your own.

Anybody already have it, and have thoughts on how closely it matches, or doesn't?
