I bought Way Out XII expecting to be able to do 12 outs without a switch. The switch and switching device are very nice but I seldom, if ever, wear a sport coat. I have no easy way to switch. Therefore it's of little use to me. I thought I was buying, from the video, a way to do 12 outs with no switch.

I'm not happy with my purchase. I've spent a lot of money and didn't get what I expected. How typical of magic products. Over hype...Under deliver.

Is it possible to use the device in a shirt pocket? I'm not suggesting this should suddenly make you happy about it, when clearly you're not, just asking for myself and anyone else who may be interested.

And while I'm in a questioning mood, how robust are the papers, bearing in mind that they will be repeatedly unfolded, refolded and put back in the pocket device. I understand that you get 10 blanks with the Way Out XII, are there instructions to make more? refills? or is it obvious how to create your own once you have them?

Cheers,
Wil.

In my opinion, a shirt pockets would not work. Not deep/large enough and it would be obvious that your shirt pocket contained other materials.

You are a cautious and suspicious bunch. Smile Works in jacket and shirt breast pockets. T-shirt could work if you wear your shirts loose. I know some prefer the fit of a T to be rather tight. That would telegraph that you have something in your pocket.

Tom-

Many thanks as always for your helpful suggestions.

If I may ask, were you involved in this release or do you just have a good knowledge of this?

I still haven't had time to watch the DVD yet but it does look very cool after having seen the WPR.

Making more papers is not a problem. No need to purchase refills. In fact I quit buying anything that requires refills as it can just go away.

Would this work with a kismet envelope?

I own Way Out and saw the demo on WPR. Like others I believe this is an incredibly ingenious device.

But after watching the DVD and WPR I do wonder if this will fly in a close up environment. It has nothing to do with the switch or audience management or the way it is sometimes unfolded. Hard to phrase this without exposing it. Best way I can put it is the edges aren't clean. I see that extra something. And if you watched the DVD, you see it too.

I'd like to hear from someone who performs this close up. Maybe I worry too much. I do plan to make smaller billets, which I believe will help mitigate the issue.

Thanks,

D

I'm also in the camp that may worry too much, because, yes, edges aren't clean. If you are doing magic to someone who is particularly discerning, or who may be extremely observant, the edges may appear be suspicious.

Regards,
Mike

As I accidentally noted, the edge issue is a pretty easy one to deal with - though it is a stretch to call it a problem. After I'd made up my own gimmicks, I happened to pop them into the Way Out book as bookmarks for pages I wanted to return to, and placed the book back onto my shelf. When I returned to them a few days later, they were noticeably flatter, and I think that if you store them in such a way as to keep pressure on them, you'll be fine.

I hope that helps.

Best,

Atlas

The book teaches you how to make the folds, what I need is pointed to where to get the proper blank paper...I am making my own

Let me pose the question this way...What is the best paper to buy to make the Way Out gimmick myself and where can I get it?

It does help. Thanks. I'm going to try to find the time this weekend to hunt up suitable paper stock for this. I still want to make the billets smaller and I'm thinking handwritten words might be better.

Later,

Just received my copy Way Out XII today. Having inspected everything and watched the DVD, I have to say that I'm very impressed. I'm certain that this will work in most conditions with angles not a real problem if you hold it close to your body. I don't realy see the thickness of the paper to be an issue or the switch for that matter. I do agree with Dan that having the papaers hand written is more natural. The DVD doesn't really cover a stage handling if you wanted to use larger papers. This may be explained in the book which I don't have. Perhaps someone can confirm this? Overall there's some really clever thinking here. Good one!
