Okay fellas, I'm going to invent a quick subjective "awesomeness of the effect" rating chart of 1-10.
Anything below a 5 is not a good investment. A "10" would be a magic effect worth mortgaging the house...or at least pawning your car title for :).

Billoon is, in the eyes of this novice (who has thousands of dollars worth of magic much of which is beyond my ability to learn or perform well due to time constraints and a snail's pace learning curve at times), a great bargain. The effect isn't draw dropping but it is eye-brow raising. I gave it 5 stars because of the value received for the money spent. Billoon is a Solid 7.

Experienced magicians probably already know the effect like the back of their hand but I had never seen this before until Matt demonstrated it in the Penguin trailer. After seeing the effect it only took me .00017 seconds (Data of Star Trek's processing speed) to conclude that this was definitely worth _ dollars to learn.

I just watched the download and am very happy to have learned something neat and new that is very performable: even I can do it. Matt is as good a teacher as Loki or Oz and was fun to watch.

To watch a great magician spend 20 minutes teaching a good effect is worth the money and then some.

That first sentence described me to the t. Lol. I've got thousands worth and time constraints to learn them all. I think I'll give this one a shot then. I like simple impressive easy tricks, cause don't have time to learn difficult ones since I do this as a hobby and not a profession.

I do this as a hobby as well. I love effects like this that are relatively easy to learn but still look amazing. I perform many effects in my collection of over 20 (hundreds of dollars) tricks mainly to my students. I'm a school counselor so the kids love this stuff. This is a great effect for any age level to enjoy.
