This is a good trick, however, the instructions in making the gimmick are difficult to follow. I
suggest you use some mock-up of paper to figure out the construction rather than trying it with

Poorly done instructions for making the gimmick. Trick may be cool, but it takes a Martha Stewart
talent to make it.

Okay effect and original construction. But after the effect then what and how do you frame it.
Interesting but I will be doing other bill penetrations. But if it fits your style it can be a hip
pocket ready effect.
Hello I made the gimmick and it works great. But why is it called illegal? Does anybody know?
I like it a lot, looks difficult to assemble but it is worth it for the effect
I love this effect. It is my go to effect. It never fails to amaze but Ravi's instruction is
terrible. I learned the most from Dee's video his handling is better and is instruction his better.
Over all amazing effect ADD TO CART!
You have to do a change if you want the bill to be examined ...
After a 30 year "pause" in magic I have found Illegal to be a great reentrance to doing closeup.
The instruction on creating and performing are easy to follow even for this 70 year old! It does
require effort (practice!) to become smooth in presentation, but, what effect doesn't. Get it, you
will love it and use it!
Great money effect for under $20. Yes it takes $8 cash to make gimmick, but well worth it.
Truth? ILLEGAL doesn't need a review. What you see is simply what you get & it's simply good... For
that quick to the point surprise it's great... All I'd suggest, respectfully, is that the trick is
so easy to do, don't overplay it or yourself.
Some might jeer thinking 'but I can't hand
out the same bill'. Geez, if you work play and enjoy what you do all us close up guys -and gals-
will have a zillion ways to overcome. A bit of the original thinking takes over and things usually
go from good to great.
Heck, it's a small price for a solid fun piece, that's simple to
throw together, easy to remember that will be with you forever.
One thing needs
mentioning. Steve Dusheck did what appeared to be exactly the same trick in the early 80's without
the bill change ending. I saw him do it again at a large classic upstate N.Y Convention... I'm not
saying ones ripping another, just giving credit to one of the best original creators of our time!
