When you see the demo video, you will certainly be fooled; the effect looks remarkable. It really looks like what it should look like, and that is a good thing.
Now, something I feel you should know going in is that there IS a gimmick involved. The gimmick will require a few minutes of your time to manufacture, but once done, will last a long time. As well, the gimmick is really not what you would expect from a routine such as this, it is completely unorthodox. Some will like the idea, some will no doubt hate it, but Peter has structured the routine to ring the gimmick in and out fairly smoothly. There are certainly better ways than what is taught, but for those that need it here and now, Peter's method is certainly satisfactory.
On the video, Peter does a good job of teaching what is going on. The explanations are clear and concise, and thorough enough to make learning fairly painless. It is obvious that English is a secondary language to Peter, but his command of the language is better than some native English speakers I have met.
There isn't a lot of fluff on the video; Peter gets right down to the brass tacks of the routine, and teaching it to you, so the video is fairly short; under 20 minutes. But, those 20 minutes are spent giving you detailed instruction on the construction and routining of this effect.
All in all, if you are interested in pencil thru bill effects, check this one out.
EFFECT - It is a pencil thru bill, so you know what it looks like. It is, however, angleproof, which is always a plus with these types of effects. 4/5
METHOD - This is an exceptionally clever method. It isn't perfect; I have a few reservations about it, but through several performances, my reservations seem to be unfounded, this simply works. 3/5
TEACHING - Peter is a good teacher, and it really shows on this video. He goes into detail on every aspect of the routine. He does slightly gloss over a switch, but the switch is so simple, it doesn't require a great deal of attention. 4/5
PRODUCTION QUALITY - I was certainly impressed here. Although most of the video is a simple one camera shoot on Peter, the lighting is perfect. As well, through a few portions of the explanation, there is an over the shoulder camera which really helps. There is some great music throughout the video, which never gets intrusive. 5/5
OVERALL - I am sure that many will get this, and discard it immediately. However, those that take the time to assemble it (which only takes a few minutes), and actually TRY it will be rewarded with a unique handling of a classic effect that will fool everybody. Recommended. 4/5
