Bob Cassidy’s Moldavian Switch – A Review

Bob Cassidy

Bob Cassidy’s Moldavian Switch – An Inside Magic ReviewI received the email from Bob announcing he would be selling the secret of the Moldavian Switch to only fifty magicians. I read the description and thought, “hmm, that would be a good thing to learn.” I am currently trying to master the Name/Place Routine featured on Bob’s DVD. On the DVD, he explains a perfect billet switch using a lighter as cover. The move is natural and as he says, “it is not a move at all.”

Well, if Bob doesn’t consider the Lighter Switch to be a move, the Moldavian Switch would have to be even less than not a move. It looks so natural and actually feels kind of neat to do.

I won’t tell you the move or even the set-up for fear of tipping the secret but the following is a true statement: If you can use your fingers to hold a billet, you can do the move. Bob claims that “the ‘Moldavian Switch’ is a technique that effectively removes the ‘difficulty factor’ from billet work.” His claim is accurate.

The cost is considerable. The only other time I’ve paid for a move rather than a whole lecture or routine, was in Vegas. I just re-read that and it sounds bad. I meant, the only time I wasn’t buying a trick and just a move was in Vegas. Still doesn’t sound better. When I was in Vegas, I paid $25.00 to learn how to do Pulp Friction from Lee Asher. I considered that money well spent.

The same applies here. You will pay $35.00 for the move and detailed descriptions of how to accomplish it; tips on using it; variations on the move and Bob’s usual very entertaining writing. You will not receive a routine you can do but if you do any billet work at all, this monograph is a must.

The document comes as a PDF file and according to Bob, has been encoded to ensure that it is not duplicated. The layout is professional, the photographs of the front and back views of the move are clear and very helpful. One of my favorite parts of the monograph is the picture of a tipsy Ted Annemann flashing a billet during a show. I have never seen the picture before but it made me feel good that even the greats in mentalism could have flaws in their presentation.

It could be that all 50 copies are gone by now. This is not for everyone. In fact, it is probably not for every one that performs psychic entertainment, but if you are hard core and need a bullet-proof billet switch, this is for you. $35.00 is a great price for this great concept.

The Moldavian Switch is only offered to magicians and psychic entertainers. If you are interested in the monograph, you can email Bob Cassidy at: bobcassidy@mastermindreader.com
