What Do you guys like better? Heiny 500 or Hundy 500?

The effect is exactly the same but i think the handling is different. IM a big Gregory Wilson fan but wanted to hear what everyone has to say about both.
Which is easier to do . Do they both use gimmicks? Which do you recommend? If you have both do you use one more than the other?

The gimmicks are identical. The difference is in the handling. I can't say much without risking exposure, but you can see the difference in video clips on the web. I have both and personally, I like the Heiny handling better.

I've been wondering about this effect too. I know that the gimmick is the same but is that true of the set up as well? In other words, could I perform Heiny 500 for one person, put it back in my pocket, then take it out again for another spectator and perform Hundy 500? Or would I need to fumble around with the bills to switch between the handlings?

Heiny 500, Slow Burn, and Hundy 500 all use the same gimmick. Those are the most common variations on Pat Page's EZ Money. I have all three.

Hundy 500 explains how to make the gimmick very clear. The routine itself is not my favorite. There is a video in the Penguin Theater of someone performing it very nicely.

Heiny 500 uses the exact same gimmick as Hundy 500. The gimmick is explained rather fast, and is more difficult to understand. The handling, though, is the best I've seen. The bills visually change, and when they flip over, the spectators are astounded. Buy this, if any.

Slow Burn is also great. It's very visual, but a little angley. Some magicians do not like this because of the count on this switch. I perform this with Heiny 500, when I turn the 100s back to 1s. It's visual and great.

To answer the question above, yes you can alternate between handlings. Perform Hundy 500, and then move to the next table and perform Heiny 500, and then move to the next table and perform Slow Burn. It works that way. The set-up and reset for all of the versions is the same.

There is another version I know of called Handy 500. It can be found in Juan's 100 Dollar Bill Switch DVD as a bonus. It's by Dan White, who is the guy featured in Theory11's Digital Dissolve DVD. His handling is very good and visual. The spectator holds the bills, and you wave your hand over them and they changed. It's good, but not the one I perfrom.

I recently ordered Paper to Money Plus which I believe to be another version of this. I saw a demo on Reel Magic Quarterly Volume 3. I might review it when it comes.

Pat Page created this as EZ Money. I have never seen this, but some people argue that it is still the best version. Fred Kaps also came out with Flash Cash.

I am just letting you know all of your choices, not just Hundy 500 and Heiny 500. Hope I could help.

Jeff

Seriously, no it doesn't come with money of any kind.

Out of curiosity, is the Extreme Burn gimmick the same as the other two (minus the little extra thing that ships with the DVD)?

I've been performing Extreme Burn using two of the included switches, but can see how other techniques might be used with the gimmick.

Why do all of the names sound similar (Heiny, Hundy, Handy)? Is this a tribute to the original creator or something?

Not really. The originator was Patrick Page.

"Hundy" because it's used with Hundreds
"Heiny" because it was created by Karl Hein.

I don't know about "Handy" unless it's simply another variation of Hundy.

Handy500 is done in the spectator's hands.
