The Shift or Switch
Kozlowski Versus Rain
On the downside, Rain’s bill switch requires some preparation ahead of time and you won’t be able to use a borrowed bill. Also, you won't be able to repeat the effect to turn the changed bill back into the previous one. Advantage, Kozlowski.
The Kozlowski switch lets you almost freely show your hands while the Rain method here doesn’t allow you to freely show one hand. Most who perform the bill switch without the usual gimmick that’s integral to the Kozlowski switch will tell you that this is not a problem. And Rain offers good handling that minimizes the problems of showing the hands empty. Advantage, neither.
There’s a bonus effect that applies the method to a decent torn and restored card routine. While there are lots of methods to perform a T&R card, this one, which uses the PK ring, allows for a very open hand position.
In “Bill Shift,” Randi Rain offers a workable bill switch. However, for those who already have a favorite method, be it classic Kozloski or any other, the method here doesn’t have enough advantages to make one want to convert. But if you already own a PK ring and don’t currently perform a bill switch, you may find this DVD worth a look.
