So this effect is great! It really is (Even though I have given it 4 stars) we can get to that in a bit.
Pros - IT'S A UTILITY.... What do I mean by that well technically you can make more than just a bill vanish....
Pro #2 Its not as loud as people under me have made it seem...
Pro#3 Extremely easy to "assemble"
Cons - THE "Gimmicks" are items you could pickup from the store very very easily thus the price is unnecessary...
Con #2 I don't even use this for the bill vanish... Instead I use it as a pen switch you'll understand after you buy it
So now the question falls on do you buy it and the simple answer is yes.. Just be aware that if you're in a room where you can literally hear pen drop don't do this but otherwise its not as loud as other people make It out to be.. Also what you get is also somewhat of a help. However I still do believe they could've made this 10$ and not shipped anything to you because then there is like a 17$ fee extra for the gimmicks and shipping. But I personally believe you should buy this.. You'll probably use it for something else though...
This is an incredible effect. As with most of Ben Williams' products, this is a quite genius method, but it will take a bit of practice. The gimmick itself is quite good at accomplishing the trick, however, I find it to be a little more noisy than necessary. If the gimmick operated silently, this would be a five-star product. But considering the price and the amount of instruction included in the tutorials, I can't complain and would recommend this to walk-around or party magicians.
Here it goes.
I'll start it off by saying this is a great effect. The method is nice, it is well put together and the instructions are well in depth and clear. You receive everything you need (although everything you need is very easy to find items you could get yourself at a local Walmart/Target). I definitely respect the work Ben put into this routine. It's clever, organic and a worker. If you get creative you can really adapt this to make it your own and even play around with other methods for it using the same ideas behind bens method. I say that because as soon as I seen the method my mind got flooded with other other ideas as well.
Although this is a great effect, I don't see myself using it anymore. I have done it in the real world, but came to conclusion that it just doesn't fit my personal style. Once again that doesn't mean this isn't great.. it's just not for me. The way I perform and the way my timing is just doesn't match the routine how I want it to.
Hence the reason why I still give this 5 stars. It deserves it no doubt.
Thanks to Ben and Team E for making this available. Great job again.
