On the curling issue can matthew confirm whether it is a generic problem or have I just been unlucky?

I am yet to work mine for peak routines, only card to wallet but my peak section is noticeably curling open at the upper and lower edges. Not drastically, but I wouldn't do a peak effect until I had it addressed as in close up I am sure it would be noticed and questioned. I think a full length ma*****c strip would have been better and done just the job.

Still lovin the wallet on the whole though!! Smile

That is my concern as well It brings heat to the exact area you don't want it. Wax is not strong enough for the curl mine is showing at top and bottom. Does anyone know where self adhesive thin magnetic strip can be bought online?

Guys mine curls too and pm and ill send ya a picture or text me via contact on pm. And believe me I am not a peek kinda guy. This wallet has made me a lot more comfortable doing peeks. As for the area that you don't want being burned. Fellas its not in the spectators mind its just a wallet. Just do it an watch. This Is one of those things that really only effect us cause of who we are. Did this last night to a magi buddy and it floored him. One on one setting.

Thin 6mm strip of magnetic vinyl around the edges, same as SAW. It then closes seamlessly,

:) I had the same issue on my wallet. I only put the strips of magnetic vinyl along the top edges, that way it still opens easily. Nice wallet.

Sounds good. Thanks Sean. Any idea where I can get a small amount rather than a massive roll?

Search eBay for magnetic vinyl. Get adhesive backed. It's cheap.

Now that I have received my wallet and I have put all of my things in it, which amount to 5 credit cards, my license and some business cards in the Mullica, some cash in the right place, and the Mullica back in the wallet and it won't close fully and I am having the aforementioned curling problem. I went on ebay last night and ordered the self adhesive magnetic strips as suggested. Does the wallet close better after it breaks in a bit?

If you used the magnetic strips can you PM me some pictures of how you installed it? I never owned a Stealth Assassin so I don't have that as a reference.

I haven't used the magnetic strips since I suck at that but I have been using it for a few months and it does flatten out a bit.. if I'm not performing I have the wallet in my back hip pocket ctw facing down to kinda spread the stretch. I'm also considering removing the gold edging on the Mullica see what that does but I enjoy the wallet. Never used a stealth so not sure. But I want a wallet that can aide in all.. and now I'm looking at getting in the mark but not sure if it will work with the fourseen.

Good lookin out! Will have to stop by and scoop this up. Although it sounds like a very difficult wallet to use everyday due to the size.

OK so I fixed it. What I did is purchase the Neodymium magnets that they sell at walmart. They come in packs of 4. I put one in each corner of the peak flaps, not easy mind you, but now the curl is gone and I think better even than magnetic tape. I bought two different kinds of that at Walmart too and it didn't work very well.

I am using it as my everyday now. It's not bad. It is slightly thicker than what I was carrying before, a non-gaffed breast pocket wallet. I am carrying this in the breast pocket too. I haven't started practicing yet but I just got the kinks worked out. I was going to order some Bonsalopes but he is out and they seem kind of pricy. I will probably make my own.

Been using mine as an everyday back pocker wallet and I love it. I would love to see the mods you made to yours however Shaun. I wanna thin it out a bit and even though about taking the Mullica out since other then hold my Business cards I havent used the Mullica insert as much as I do the other CTW slot.
