I wish I had the money to get a couple more, I can envision a Monte style effect using 3.

I definitely have a hard time fitting more than 4 coins without being noticeable. I believe the tutorial recommends thin objects.



I certainly think it's more suited to notes / billets.

I have tried it with coins yet as that's not what I'm looking at performing with it, but I am going to give a few different coins a whirl in it this week to see if the handling of it can disguise anything noticeable.

Wravyn,

That's exactly what I am getting the second one for. I was going for three but decided that having just the two and having the spectator hold one and I hold one would have a greater effect.

I've been playing around with routines as I've been handling the Quiver (sounds wrong) but like most of my routines they tend to come to me when I'm working on something else. Oh my disorganised creative mind.

Personally I feel that if you bring out one of these as a coin purse it is ignored and not scrutinized as a prop. IF you bring out two or three of these with tabs on them all looking identical you are screaming a gaffed case. You cannot hand these out for examination and while that is fine if you use ONE it is not if you use three. I love the creativity shown by my brothers on this thread, but I urge against this monte approach with this prop. Please don't hate me!

Sometimes if I want to do just a single coin vanish at the end of a coin’s across it would be nice to use my quiver instead of sleight of hand depending on who and how many ppl I am performing for. The problem with quiver is that the leather material is not thick enoughTo hide the shape of my Morgan dollar. Can anyone recommend a different coin purse or similar item to achieve this?

Quiver has now made a l;artge version. This one works to do the hide of a morgan shell or morgan sized coin perfectly. Ellusionist has the new ones. Select QUIVER and now you'll see a dropdown for size. Hope this helps you!

Thank you for that information I appreciate it. Do you know if they made the leather thicker?

Seems same to me on leather thickness but as the purse is taller/wider, toy don't see the coins in it and you sometimes could with the smaller one.

I have both. One can do a lot more with the Quiver, including effects that don't involve coins at all. I use the Traveler just to carry coins around. Maybe I'm not getting enough out of it?

Note to those with smaller hands - the Quiver+ (bigger one) is harder to operate as the squeeze of the opening is larger. I love it as stated above in this thread and I feel safe hiding 2 stacked Morgans and showing both sides of this one where the original smaller quiver was risky. No talking with the big one either

A monte style effect can be routined with just one quiver prop. Use three cups or three pockets or three envelopes, etc. and have your spec guess where the coin or coins are. Smile

Do you guys now if several small coins fit in the Quiver +? Around 15-20 coins, sizes would be like american pennies, quarters and nickels, let's say 15 in one side and three or four on the other. My idea is to take out the 15 coins from the purse, spectators choose a few coins and drop them on the Quiver, then I switch them, the other coins would be on the table during the switch.

That would work with the regular Quiver but would be better with the newer, larger Quiver+.

Good idea!

That setup should work. You would be able to "hide" 15 to 20 coins on one side, but it sounds like with the plan you have that wouldn't matter as you'd pour out the full 15 and are really just doing a switch of 3 or 4. That would work as long as the spec doesn't have an opportunity to hold the Quiver or they might notice something...

I have tried both Quiver and The Traveler- I only got the Traveler out of curiosity when my Quiver got pickpocketed (alongside 5 of my silver Walking Liberties).

I personally would say that the Quiver is better at coin switches and coin vanishes while The Traveler allows you to steal and stash coins better and do final loads. Quiver requires very little sleight of hand to accomplish anything with, while The Traveler requires you to to a metric ton of sleights to accomplish even the simplest effect. Thankfully, The Traveler also includes 3 hours of instructional video- nothing you wouldn't find in Bobo's, but it has good applications.

This said, I loved my Quiver for the 3 months while I had it, but I've had The Traveler for a while hence and have found it much more rewarding IMHO.

Are different and both have their place. They are both exquisite.
