I Can't believe these bad reviews. It is meant to be on the in the middle of a place with no hard surfaces. They say that in the trailer. The people complaining about how you need business cards, you can easily put a gift card in and it will work almost as good.
Pros: Easy to use
Comes with one of the best effects ever
ONLY 70 BUCKS!
Cons : Marker is small and can get lost if not on
You can only put a couple of bills in it
That's all! Good quality product from Ellusionist and I would definitely recommend buying this product.
Ehh... The wallet itself is epic, and so is the effect... but only when it works. I've tried using this effect several times and it usually lets me down. If you really like mentalism, it might be worth the money though
This is a great effect, i really like it and love performing it as no one picks up that its a peek especially on a wallet however there is one draw back and that is were you perform it. You need to make sure you are performing out and about and not somewhere where there is a table otherwise it defeats the purpose of the needing the wallet and a lamen will pick up on that instantly. They will ask why right on the wallet when i can lean on the bench, It just looks to suspicious but otherwise if your doing street magic it is amazing. (one way to get around that however is if they ask that question literally just reply "you need to wallet to lean against so i cannot see what you are writing, if you write on the table i will see the answer haha", they will tell you to turn around!! Reply with " thats my wallet, you look like a nice person but its not an item i want out of my sights") i really do hope that helps a few people as it has gotten me out of a few eerie questions in the past.
I just personally prefer the H-pad as it looks cleaner especially being just a note pad, also its fully customisable and you dont even need to buy the refills as your local news agency should actually sell the paper you need. A wallet like that looks to conspicuous compared to a notepad. But the item is awsome and just depends on your style of magic.
