I love the effect. But at $20 (which honestly is kinda high for what it is), a few things to know
before you purchase it that the video doesn't seem to mention.
The gimmick isn't exactly
original and it'll cost about $6 additional to make,so be ready to hit a dollar store.
need BIG hands to get the most out of this effect. Mine are average size so I can't hide 50
individual bills like he implies doing up close. I can get maybe $20 so far before angles turn into
You'll need to practice the handling A LOT if you're new to this sort of effect.
The "sleights" as we'll call them need some muscle memory if you want it to look good and not blow
Last but not least, this is a good one to surprise people with if you're not up
for being inspected yet. If you use his presentation and tell them it's coming they'll be looking,
and I'm not ready for that. I've only done it once for an audience (so far), but I deliberately
ordered $6 of drinks and counted out 5 singles just like he did, acted exasperated for a moment, and
then turned it into about $15 without saying a word between reaching in my pocket and producing the
effect. Plenty enough to astound a barkeep that didn't see it coming.
Do what is best for your size hands and Start with fewer bills like, 3 or 4. 20 is impressive, but if you can do 20, I’m also willing to bet you could do 25-30. But do what is comfortable to you. My problem with these style money tricks is I can never find a reason to do them, they just don’t fit my style, but I do like it and think Karl did an excellent job with this take.
