If you are looking for a stunning and easy-to-do bill change effect, you might want to check out Extreme Burn 2.0 by Richard Sanders. This is one of the most visual and versatile bill change systems ever created, and it has been improved with a new locking mechanism that makes it smoother, easier and more powerful than ever.
In this article, I will give you an overview of what Extreme Burn 2.0 is, how it works, what you get when you order it, and some tips and tricks to make the most out of it.
What is Extreme Burn 2.0
Extreme Burn 2.0 is a gimmicked set of bills that allows you to visually change them from one denomination to another, with no cover, no folding, no funny moves. You can show four or five bills cleanly, one at a time, on both sides, lay them flat in your hand, and with a simple shake or snap, they instantly change into different bills.
You can change any currency into any other currency, or even into other objects like lottery tickets, business cards, coupons, etc. The possibilities are endless. You can also perform multiple changes in a row, creating a stunning visual display of magic.
The best part is that the gimmick does most of the work for you, so you can focus on your presentation and audience reaction. The bills are also completely examinable at the end of the effect, and you can even spend them if you want.
How does it work
Extreme Burn 2.0 works with a clever combination of technique and gimmick. The technique is based on the classic Pat Page's Easy Money principle, but with some refinements and variations by Richard Sanders and other magicians. The gimmick is a specially designed set of bills that are attached together with a hidden locking system that allows you to switch them easily and securely.
The locking system is the main improvement of Extreme Burn 2.0 over the previous version. It was developed by Justin Tocko and Justin Alan, and it makes the handling much smoother and easier. You don't have to worry about the bills coming apart or getting stuck together. You can also adjust the tension of the lock to your preference.
The gimmick is very well made and durable. It comes with four US $1 bills and four $100 bills, but you can customize it with any bills or objects of your choice. You will also get access to an online video tutorial that teaches you how to make the gimmick, how to perform the effect, and how to do 10 different changes.

How to make the most out of it

Choose your bills wisely. You can use any currency or object that fits in your gimmick, but make sure they are visually different and contrast well with each other. For example, changing from US $1 bills to $100 bills is very effective because they have different colors and sizes.
