Here's a few things other reviews should mention.
The $5 to $1 transpo is a great way to
get a reaction. It's essentially Scotch and Soda with bills instead of coins. However, unlike Scotch
and Soda, you have to get that bill back before they inspect it, and you better hope it's sitting
just right when they open their hands. To me any magic trick where you have to snatch things out of
their hands before they can look at it automatically loses points. And that's the trick with the
most selling points.
The rest of the tricks are fairly classic past a certain point, and
basically anyone who's ever watched a "how-to" on magic is going to know what's going on and at best
you just have to hope (or ensure based on skill I suppose) they aren't paying attention to EXTREMELY
obvious things that we're taught to look for first.
So for $25 you're getting one trick
that you have to hope the audience doesn't immediately inspect your prop (like I would), and several
tricks that are honestly just borderline joyless ice breakers because you know where it's going as
soon as you see them start the presentation. If you mark a bill, everyone knows you're going to
vanish it and make it reappear, and this is what I'd call the "cheap ass generic" version of how-to
and the presentation, or maybe "1st grader's intro to magic".
If you're just starting out,
this is as good as any.
If you're like me and prefer a trick where you can just stand
there and let them baffle themselves until they give up, you might find yourself a bit disappointed
with how much you just spent on it.

Jay is one of the best instructors I have found in my budding career as a late in life magician
(starting at age 62).
Heck, Jay's transformation of a 2$ bill into 2 x 1$ bills (and vice
versa) is worth it all. That trick alone keeps amazing everyone. I'm even working on versions with
foreign currency (one in Italian, one in Hungarian). I've got a 2000 Lire note turning into two 1000
lire notes and am working on patter (in Italian) about how difficult it used to be to get change in
Italian stores! "Non possiamo darti alcun resto dai tuoi soldi!" Poof. Here's a couple of 1000 lire
For the record, Italian Lire have long been replaced by the Euro, but you can
get older bank notes pretty cheaply on eBay. I'm waiting on my Hungarian forints.
Jay Noblezada has become a "Gold Seal" for me, on everything he publishes; because he always brings
guaranteed SOLID content!
He doesn't spend on a bunch of "theory" to muddy the waters. You get
everything, EXACT techniques & routining. Gets your marching orders and Then GO! PERFORM! ENJOY IT!
These are Classic, Time Tested, Everyone Should be doing...WELL! And this shows you how to do
HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Very well produced with clear instruction. All of the effects are good but the $5 and $1 Transpo is
worth the price of admission alone. I will definitely be performing that one on a regular basis.
Comes highly recommended.
With a plethora of magic books and dvds to choose from theses days sometimes its hard to know what
is truly worth your time, energy, and money. This dvd is the most comprehensive learning on the
subject of bill magic I've ever seen. Not just a few, but every single trick is STRONG and sensible.
Jay teaches in a very detailed and easy to understand way. Honestly, if you fancy yourself a
magician, you NEED these effects. Everyone likes money and you wont find better material. Jay
Noblezada does it again.
I am from Sweden and we use a different currency(crowns). The big problem is that almost every trick
is made for the US Dollar($).
I can't believe I had this DVD sitting in my box of tricks I ordered back in Dec. 2013. I ordered a
number of tricks months ago, all except for Money are cards tricks. I realized, I'm getting bored
and want to learn something new. I never touched Money because the visual effect were so powerful
that I figured learning these tricks would be very difficult. Last night, I decided to open the
case, pop the DVD in and watch. Let me tell you if I only had known how easy it would to perform
these tricks this would have been the first within my order to open.
5 in 1 - Although you
will have to prepare the gimmick yourself, you lose nothing in the end (watch the DVD and you'll see
what I mean. $2 Window - OMG!!! After seeing how easy it is to prepare and perform this trick, I
was filled with AWE!!! This trick is off the hook!!!! Again, u make the gimmick, but nothing it
won't cost you end the end. (I'm heading to the bank in the morning to get my props!!). Alpha Cash
- Another easy gimmick to make and perform. Awesome, Awesome trick Visually. Jay's tutorial on how
to construct the gimmicks and use them are clear, concise and easy to follow. These tricks are as
visually stunning as Daniel Garcia's GREED, but with to exceptions. They are easier to construct.
Everything redeemable, and easier to perform in my opinion. Don't get me wrong GREED is awesome,
but requires much practice. I'm not saying these tricks one require practice but they are very
clean and better angle proof.
Some good tricks here and ways to build creative gimmics. Really good build change in here.
I really enjoyed watching "MONEY" by Jay Noblazada. I really enjoy how in-depth Jay goes in
explaining how to setup the gimmicks as well as how to preform the trick. My favorite trick in the
video is the five and one transpo. You leave all of the spectators with their jaw almost touching
the floor. It is definitely a mindblower and when perfected is a great addition to a magic routine.
All of the other tricks are great as well. The fact that this video also includes 15 other magic
tricks makes it a steal. I recommend MONEY to anyone that loves to use money in their magic routine.
