FYI - I now have toy frogs available on my website. They are the exact variety I used on my Brainstorm DVDs. (These are the toy frogs only - not the gimmicked cards).

Thanks! I believe the wallet I use is the Keith Bennett Hip Wallet.

Some defining elements are the brass tips on the corners (not to be confused with Mark Mason's wallet) and the unique button clasp on the outside. This may help you identify the exact wallet I use.
I don't have a direct link, but I suppose you can just google it.

I did a google but it seemed that the Keith Bennet Hip Wallet was discontinued. Anyone knows what would be a close fit? Thanks.


For a similar wallet that John used, The Ultra Slim Wallet comes close. But, the wallet doesn't matter. With John's routine and built in misdirection, any of the popular card to wallet could be used.

You are right, MagicChris. If you know palming and uses the misdirection that he provides, I think any wallet will do. I was lucky enough to have a Café member sold me one in mint condition at a very reasonable price. It's slim and fits nicely into any jean pocket. So now I have the discontinued Keith Bennett's wallet with brass tips to my wallet collection. Smile

There's something about those wallets with the gilt metal corners that catch the eye!!!

I should add that the KB Wallet still has a superior design. While the Royal Magic Wallet is the closest alternative I've found, you have to be careful when removing the card or else the secret slot might be seen. Just a word of warning.

I have the KB wallet. It's Keith Bennett's wallet and I truly think the design is a lot better than other slim wallets out there. The hip KB wallet is very easy to load and the card stays secure in the slot.

I like John's Lost & Found and I thinked this effect is killer. My favourites are Palm Reader, Double Monte, Tidal Wave Aces and etc, I like and really satisfied his 2 volumes of DVDs and I use 80% of his materials in my act.

I am thinking he is copying David Regal with his whooping noises. I am finding it annoying.

He is all shouting and making all a loud noise.

When I am doing some magics then I am saying a patter but is not shouting and spoiling it when the magic moment is happening.

When there is a noise and shouting when there is magic moment then you are thinking it is clever but not the audience and they think you are trying harder by making noise because the magics is not very good.

But John is good magic so does not need to be shouting and making these sounds. Maybe be leaving it to David Regal to be making loud noises instead and not copy him maybe.

I am helpings John by saying to not be making so many noises. Maybe he is thinking I am helping him by saying this.

I just watched John Guastaferro's Brainstorm again. No, John is not shouting at all - I can't imagine that John can be perceived as shouting or making funny noises. He's one of the very mild manner magicians I've seen. On a few effects, John gets a little excited and he has his own brand of conveying his magic and excitment. I think his exhilaration is refreshing and infectious.

juan king, if you want to see loud, you ought to watch the CEO of comedy magic - Bill Malone (no pun intended) - very contagious indeed.

I have been seeing this Bill Malone and he is very shouting! and is very funny.

I don't think I am meaning John is shouting like loudly (a problems with my language), I mean he is making this funny noise when a magic is happening.

I have also seen that Reed McClintock and Gary Kurtz are saying "oooooh" in the sames way when a magics is happening. Have a look and you will be seeing what I mean.
