One pouch coming up, Danny.

By the way, thanks to Harry Murphy, we also now have a pattern to make a "Stubby" version of the pouch. This is for buskers that are long everywhere except their arms.

Holds just as much but is a couple inches shorter.
I will probably re-do how the belt loops work but I have photos.

I got one of these new pouches this past week and put it to work, after 8 or 10 shows I've decided, this is the best pouch I have ever owned. The design and the layout are perfect for the street worker. There is a place for everything including your money! In this price range there is nothing that even compares.

This pouch is just a bit smaller than the pouch I was using and for me that is a bonus. In my cups routine I use four objects and a coconut. This pouch holds them easily and if I wanted to go to six baseball sized objects and a coconut it would be a snap. The shape of the bottom of the bag holds the top open wide without any forward sag so that loading feels positive and sure fire. It also keeps the bag looking empty without the need for super stiff leather in the front and soft in the back. Frank has made a really nice design shift from what others are doing and I think it works great.

The pockets will hold at your fingertips, coins, silks, cards, thumbtips, balls, rope, cash, you name it. It is obvious that this pouch was designed by a guy who works outside a lot. Frank has thought of everything and at the price of only $199.00 these things are a steal. Bring your pouch and your table and you are ready to work. This one bag is laid out to hold your entire street show.

Really, this is the only pouch you will ever see me using. I can not say enough good things about it.

Best,

Dan-

I agree with Danny. I asked Frank to make me a brown version and latter asked him to modify it slightly to better fit my needs. Basically I asked him to take the “lip” or “apron” off (that two plus inch bit above the pouch at the rear that the belt is threaded through). That raised the bottom of the pouch two inches and better fit my short stature). Thus the “Stubby” was born. It has the same interior space but rides higher (see it on Franks website).

The thing is built to take the rigors of working.

I have been using it for two weeks now and must say that it is the best pouch I’ve used (and I’ve made, bought, and used a number of pouches over the decades). I even use it to carry the act even when I don’t perform the Cups & Balls. Danny has already mentioned the capacity and Frank shows one fully loaded on his website, I’ll add that I carried a small Babcock Die Box, a Riser Ultimate (tall) Chop Cup) with two baseballs and baseball size, hollow, stainless steel juggling ball for final loads), a wand, four large scarves (also custom made for me by Frank), ten feet of rope, and a thumb tip with room to spare.

This past weekend I left the Chop Cup and loads at home and put in a set of four 10-inch rings. I was working a festival and decided to forgo a table. The pouch carried everything I needed well organized and ready to go.

In all it is a well made, durable, and useful accessory. I consider it a best buy!

Having made and/or helped made pouches of another variety, I'd like to say this pouch is far better than anything I ever worked on. I had a customer call and ask to see a pouch one time, and he was from out of town. Not too far away, so I drove to his town with the pouch and a couple of items he had asked me to bring. We had dinner and he looked over all the items I brought. He picked up the pouch I brought and said "Wow, this would be a great pouch if it had a place for cards, maybe a couple of decks, a place to keep some props, and a few more pockets".

While having dinner with him and talking I learned he was a full time working magician who did parties, schools, festivals, and corporate events. He worked 5-7 days a week every week. He handed me the pouch back and said "No thanks, it's not practical for anyone who works like I do".

Then Frank came out with this pouch and offered it to us to sell to our customers as well. When the first batch arrived, I realized that this was the exact pouch the guy had described even before it was designed. Frank's captured what people want in a pouch.

We are thrilled with this pouch and thrilled that we have partnered with Frank to make it available. It's just so much more than a "circle show pouch". It's a true workers pouch.

Thanks Frank-
Steve

Frank Pouch is very nice I have them in stock as well.

In my mind it is a very different beast all together, I would describe it as a versatile pouch. Yes you can do C&B with it.

It is horses for causes; Gazzo pouch that he made for me is with dought to me the finest Pouch on the market. It has traditional charm that fits well with the image of traditional street magician. Image is every thing so they say. If you want to capture the charm of a gypsy like performer, all say do a medieval Victorian gigs as well as street performing then Gazzo pouch is ideal.

On the other hand if you want a versatile pouch that is far modern looking in its stile then Franks pouch is ideal. If you want a pouch to do close up gigs as well with then this pouch could be ideal.

To compare them to each other all any other pouches is a bit like trying to compare to old girl friends, it does not help any one and could be misleading.

You know how it is, she loves me, she love me not, she love me, she loves not, she is in bed with who?

You need to work out what you want to do and then suck it and see.

I tried sucking it but didn't start seeing anything, It just tasted like leather.
Can't deny that its a fine peice of workmanship though, and it holds everything I need it to with ease. I can't fault it at all, Thanks Frank
I was put on this earth to do a great many things..... I'm now so far behind that I don't think I'm ever going to die!

Magnus, your pouch is on its way. It went out a couple days ago.

The other item you ordered from me I didn't even know existed. I got one myself to check out and it's great. I think I will be using this all the time. You will like it.

Hey folks:

I received Frank's new pouch just before embarking on a three month engagement as a street entertainer for Mackinaw Crossings, northern Michigan's premiere shopping destination.

I must say, for a first-time busker, and probably for anyone else, this is an excellent pouch. If I add up all the magic I have in there together, I'd probably have close to 90 minutes.

Please enjoy these photos of me performing with it.

As Homer Simpson might say: "Nine thumbs up!"


Nice pictures. I liked the captions as well. BTW, the fuzzy orange hat was better... more room for money!

They are now all sold.
A new batch has been ordered and is probably 2 weeks away.
Hopefully less.

We've got two black one's left of Frank's if anyone's looking for one in the meantime.

Don't forget, it takes a little while to get a batch of these made, and Christmas isn't far away. If you're planning on asking for one for Christmas, I'd recommend starting to snatch them up. It'll be early-mid November before the next batch is in, so if they all go, it may not be time to have another batch done before Christmas. Only Frank knows that answer, but it's something to consider if you're planning on one for Christmas.

Snatching them up is a good idea. If magicpitch has some left I think they might still be giving away the gazzo DVD with them for free. that's a great deal.

Yes Frank that's correct, we're still throwing in a free Gazzo on Tour DVD set, and if you order it from this batch, we'll throw in a set of soccer balls to use in the cups and balls.

Kind regards-
Steve

Got one of Frank's pouches in brown this past Thursday and gave it a christening while away this past weekend. This pouch has everything I could ask for! Aside from darn good looking it's a functional dream. The thick main pouch leather combined with the soft leather outer pouch makes this baby almost stealth on the big loads. The way all the small inner and outer pockets are designed, you know this pouch was designed with one heck of a lot of working knowledge. For the price Frank's pouch goes for, Xmas came early for me! Thanks Frank.

Frank, did you ever get the back fixed? I had a hard time getting the right stuff, but I think I got it now....
