You can load a folded card in the same way as a non folder card. Shouldn't be a problem.

I just got the infinity and like it a lot. as noted above, the DVD might have been excluded by another manufacturer, in favor of a one-page summary of features directing you to your "favorite switch," or whatever. here, though, you get a guided tour of the features and at least one routine per feature.

the primary reason I got it was for a palm-loaded card-to-wallet, and I find it perfect. I vastly prefer the regular-size wallet to the long ones, and it seems to have quite deliberately been designed to throw people off the scent of what's going on, with the entry point and snap to the visible compartment in which the card is found being at the same end. while some might prefer a zipper -- which, concededly, is very compelling -- this is true to the sort of compartment a drivers license or regularly used/flashed ID would be kept in. thus there will be a lot of people connecting to their own experience, which sometimes entails battling against the stickiness of the clear plastic to get the ID in there in the first instance -- the corollary to which is that they dread taking the thing out. that of course fortifies the idea that it's not the sort of thing that could be done quickly, even if the whole thing were wide open. in that the overall aspect is a nondescript and utterly typical black leather wallet, and loading via the back pocket is an option, the performance will be as good as your palm and general presentation. this wallet facilitates both, without encumbrance or distractions. plus it does half-a-dozen other things. they clearly put time and thought into the design. hard to demand more. a thoroughly satisfying purchase, and one of the very few items I've bought when it is brand new.

I have been using the heck out of this wallet and it kills! It is now my everyday wallet as well as a killer 'set' of material. I love the prediction trick with the Koran deck, it absolutely kills. Best wallet I have bought. Card in wallet is great as well and I do it all the time when someone says do a trick. Still performing John Mendoza's Card to Wallet with the Himber / Bombshell wallet in my show though.

So, I'm kind of a returner to magic, and I wanted to get a card to wallet (palm or no palm). After debating between the F1, Infinity, and Super Slim Hip Pocket Mullica I ended up getting the Infinity, partially because I wanted to get into some mentalism. I have to say, I really like the wallet, though I have no points of comparison between the Infinity and different wallets. One thing is .. given all the functionality in the wallet.. I'd like some more routine ideas than just the ones on the DVD. I was thnking of getting Max Maven's Multiplicity as that deals with m******* o**** and that's something the Infinity Wallet offers. Would that be a good choice? I'm also looking for a source of material that shows different ways to use a p**k. I have some ideas.. but the more the merrier. Any good book / DVD concerning peek routines?

Any thoughts you have would be appreciated. I'd like to get the most out of the wallet.

Haven't seen much about this wallet on the Café. I'm wondering if this could replace my JOL plus wallet. I don't use the no-palm function so that isn't a problem. I saw on the Alakazam video that at some have retired their JOLs in favour of the infinity.

Thanks
Sean

I have a hard time to load the card inside the infinity wallet.
The weight of the wallet keeps it sinking into the bottom the pocket, and the guide also slip in before I load the card sometimes.
Any suggestions or someone can share how to prevent these situation?

I'm going to give this a go. I absolutely love my JOL plus, but I would like to have the shogun, indexing and peek as well. Some seem to say the ctw load is a dream to use while others are having problems. Who knows?. Il post my thoughts once I've had a chance to out it to use

Kind regards
Sean

Personally speaking, I prefer the load in the JOL plus wallet. I find wallets that need a slide to be set in advance a bit unreliable due to the slide falling back into the wallet while still in your pocket, or forgetting to set the slide in advance ( I find it very difficult to set the slide while the wallet is already in my pocket, especially if it in in a trouser pocket.)

I do like the amount of stuff I can get into this wallet though. While I do not use the shogun itself I love the small pockets that are tucked away inside it as they are great for keeping the odd bits and bobs in, like a folded card for Paperclipped, or photos ready for Torn To Pieces.

How is this wallet compared to Triple Thread wallet?
I'm interested in buying one wallet but not sure which one.

You can't beat the JOL plus for card to wallet. The best hands down. The strength of the Infinity is in its use as an all rounder

I have just started performing with my Infinity Wallet. Fantastic wallet which gives you everything you need to do a variety of great effects. Prior to this purchase, I have done very little wallet related magic. It is now my everyday wallet and I highly recommend it. The quality is outstanding and the instructional DVD is great!

I too, am looking for some more routines... The DVD was very nice but I remember reading reviews where the saw comes with 2 hours or 2 full DVDs or something like that. I haven't been able to find peek wallet resources specifically, although I know there is some good peek related material by Richard Busch out there (not sure if it concerns wallets). I'm a little intimidated at the thought of reopening the wallet to get the peek. Though Peter does touch on this on the DVD....

When doing the card revelation written on the bill, is this designed to show just 1 bill in the wallet when you open it. Can you get to where you need to be without looking down at the wallet.

The short answer is 'yes.'

That said, I always look at the wallet when I am showing the one bill, as it's perfectly natural (wouldn't you do this if you were checking your wallet's currency contents?) and all the attention is on the wallet/bill.

I'm curious as to why you want to be able to do this without looking.
