An innovative utility device Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 5th, 2013
Let's get one thing straight. "Scratch," by Chad Long is a utility device, not an effect in itself, meaning that there is no such trick as "Scrach." This is a good thing, though, as it leaves creative performers with a lot more flexibility.
Like any good utility device, it comes with some suggested applications. My favorite is "Chicago Scratch," Long's version of the Chicago Opener. The DVD is of decent quality and it doesn't drag on and on. I also like that the three suggested applications are unique, with different moves and presentations, not just three variations of the same thing.
Finally, it's always a plus when refills are offered at a reasonable price, as in this case. Although, the original comes with enough devices for nearly 100 performances, so it will be a while before I need to pick up a refill pack.
Unexpected magic Report this review

I really like scratch. It's good because it gives the bill switch/change a reason for happening and it's your bill so why would you want to change it back. Another thing I've learned is that if presented right people don't see it coming because everything is motivated. The really nice is that your completely clean before anyone knows something is going to happen. I personally don't preform the other tricks on the DVD but that doesn't demenish their strength. This trick has lots of possibilities.
Easy to do: fantastic reactions! Report this review

Watch the trailer. See those reactions? You get those with Scratch. The DVD is great and Chad even teaches Juan Tamariz 's Crossing the Gaze switch from his book, Five Points In Magic.
You even learn a deadly mentalism trick that you WILL DO!

With just the tricks on the DVD, you have some GREAT tricks that are just wonderful. There is some really great and devious ideas here.
But for the more enthused, a little determination will get you some really great effects, with this little utility gimmick.
It's just clever, and if you like the idea of scratch cards used to magical effect, this is just for you.
The spectator scratches the scratch pad, and then some magic happens. In their hands.
And it's awesome!
Very Good. Report this review

This has to be my favorite money trick right now. I perform the scratch off bill just like he does and I love to see the participants eyes light when they notice the change. Just a nice medium strength trick good for all ages to perform to. An all around every day all day in your pro sets or other IT'S ALL GOOD trick. I highly recommend. Oh, the kids loved it. You should have heard them react yell.
Simplicity is best.. Report this review

We sometimes forget that some of the really simple tricks get huge reactions. Scratch is one of those. Keep it in your pocket...And, yes, have extras made up in a packet...you're going to use them.
DVD teaches you this routine plus a few others. Teaching is clear and thorough. It's really that easy to perform and the responses are huge since the bill can be examined, both at the beginning and at the end. Don't worry...you finish clean. One minor slight is required that anyone/everyone can do.
FYI, you do get 100 gimmicks which you will probably use rather quickly (Yes, you will do it that often...) and although PM sells refills, they always seem to be "out of stock". Thus, you can get 'em on Ebay for under $5.00 for an additional 100. I've ordered many more...
In closing, it's a very easy and fun trick that can be performed anywhere...no angle worries and finishes clean. Add to cart...

Like my American Express Card, I never leave home without it. There's more than one effect but the one I love is the lottery bill effect.
There's hardly a day that goes by that I don't show the effect to someone. It's the sort of trick that you can have ready for the inevitable question, "You're a magician, show me a trick."
I don't "sell" it as a trick but as a way to make a little extra money with the instant lottery.

I first saw Chad at a workshop that David Sandy put on years back and he was the highlight for me even that I had never heard of him before. I have been doing red hot mama for years but scratch is so good I think I will be replacing it for scratch. I like at the end you have a nice giveaway and this trick is soooooo easy and it makes you look like a pro with cards. Thanks Chad for helping me add another great piece of magic to my close up set.
