I love this!

Mind Reading is Big over here due to the Deren Brown Show on TV. I've been looking for a way to do some "Mentalist" type stuff in my walkabout act. After much searching I have bought and started using Peter Nardi's Stealth Wallet. As I understand it, The Stealth Wallet grew out of the development of the Mindspy Wallet. Stealth is smaller, and less versatile, but perfect for my needs. I use it to do the old Picture Duplicating effect. ie. The subject draws a picture on the back of my business card, the card is put safely out of sight, and I get them to visualise the picture in front of them, I draw it. Ta DAhh!

Though of course, many different effects can be done with this prop.

Main points in it's favour.

1/ Totally versatile, It can be used with numbers, pictures names etc, not just numbers, and can be drawn anywhere on the card.

2/ It puts my business card in their hand!

3/ No real angle problems, I have no qualms about doing it in a standard, walkabout situation.

4/ Simple method, and as far as I can see so far, foolproof with nothing to wear out.

5/ I can carry odd effects and cash in the wallet, ie Colour Monte etc.

6/ The Wallet is small, fits in my trouser pocket. I love my Mullica Wallet and use it at every gig, but this I can carry everwhere on nights at the Pub etc. (Looks like my normal wallet, instead of a "Magic Wallet")

7/ Works in all lighting conditions

Did I mention I LOVE this.

Great Review!

I also have the Stealth Wallet, and while at first I really didn't like it, it has grown on me... especially with the reactions it gets!

At the moment I am performing the effect where a spectator writes down the name of a movie they have seen recently (on the back of my business card), and the card is safely locked away out of sight. I then get the spectator to write down the name of the lead actor/actress in the movie. The spectator holds onto this card.

So long as you know your movies, you can divine the lead actor/actress from the film name (which you know), so while the revelation of the movie name is great; the reactions when I divine the name of the lead actor/actress is huge!

Do not under-estimate how powerful this effect is, and how versitile the wallet is. And although a little pricey, I think if you want a walkaround, carry anywhere miracle, this is hard to beat.

Hi,

Glad to hear you like the Stealth Wallet. I have been using the prototype to this wallet for almost 2 years and I can not count the amount of re-booking this little wallet has got me!

The Hollywood Or Bust routine was by a good friend of mine Colin Miller and was invented for the Mind Spy wallet but it also works very well with stealth. The Original routine was as follows: your spectator writes the name of a movie star (which is peeked and then you guess the movie your spectator is thinking of). This is the routine I perform to date and the reactions are incredible but don't take my word for it, try it!.

I hope you have fun with it!

Can someone compare/contrast the Stealth Wallet with SUC? If I have SUC, what do I gain with Stealth?

Thank you.

Paradise,

I too am interested in a comparison between the Stelth and MindSpy wallets.

I have tried to get to the Magicbunny URL (magicbunny.com?) and all I found was a page to pay for and download games. I tried to get to the talkmagic URL (talkmagic.com?) and all I got was to be redirected to a guy in the Orient that has a cartoon amine web page (which, he announces he has just closed down).

Does magicbunny and talkmagic have different URLs than I have been trying?

Thanks for the info.

Mike

Stealth is great for everyday use as it fits in your back pocket. The Mind Spy is a larger inside jacket pocket type wallet.

Just a question, can the peek be done surrounded?

I have never had a problem with the peek. If I am surrounded I just ask a question at the dirty moment.

Thanks for the reply, Peter. One more thing, can the wallet be casually handled by an audience member?

I fully echo all the comments of praise.

A fantastic wallet, which looks classy and not once has it ever been suspected by anyone I've used it with that I was taking a look! As long as you can sell the reason why they are writing it down and placing it in the wallet you won't have a problem!

i too purchased this after a friend performed it on me! Yes do a great delivery of divining the drawing or movie. I use a Derren style approach and i also used a technique when someone asked me to show them it again but to a friend i held there pulse then went fishing - blew them both away with the right presentation this wallet makes you seem amazing.

If your not hot on your movies a way round this is to say "okay that charactor is for you to focus on performing in that role in the movie ok, the movies what im after here"; this helps you get round any arkward moments Smile
