From the trailer (https://vimeo.com/330102827), at 02:04, one can clearly see that he reaches into his pockets to palm the folded card, which he then "drops" into an empty bag...

Some questions (in addition to the those already posted):
1. Does the reveal always have to be in mercury fold?
2. Is palming required?

Its awesome how fast one can retrieve the selected card, so that part of the effect is great. However, I feel that the obvious palm and reveal in the "empty" bag diminishes the quality of the overall effect as spectators will go -"hey I saw him reaching into his pockets to take out the card and drop it into the bag" - instead of actually being marvelled by how the magician managed to pull out the selected card in the first place.

3. Therefore my last question is, can the magician just reach into his/her pocket and pull out the selected card without any mercury fold?

Thanks!

The trailer says it “takes virtually no pocket space” but the printed ad copy says (twice) “requires no pocket space.” Curious why, if the ad copy is correct, the qualifier “virtually” used in the video.

Obviously we know what it is. It'll take some space. But sounds and seems like it could be quite a nice advancement.

It's got my attention. So...the question we usually like to ask...

Who's first?

From the video it’s pretty apparent that the effect requires a bit of extra banter and a fair amount of mis-direction.

I’m going to assume that the cards are pre-folded.

Most full deck i*****s will need more than one pocket. Retrieval time isn’t really an issue I have two and it literally takes 3 to 4 seconds, for me to buy this it has to be something totally different which takes up less pocket space. Difficult to see ho as like others I think these are pre folded as in the demo all the cards are like this. Hope I’m proved wrong and it’s a step forward.

Howdy everyone!

I’m replying from my phone, so excuse me if I miss any questions - I’ll get back in here properly from a laptop later this weekend!

I know the no pocket space seems confusing, but this is why I created this gimmick in the first place, I didn’t want even more stuff in my pockets lol

I DO ditch to my pocket (as shown in the trailer) - this isn’t essential, just my preference for a quick reset, should I need to whilst strolling (I use this on stage, in parlour and close up)

The cards are prefolded, you choose which cards you want to use - I usually just use old deck cards, and refill from burn packs!

Clothing requirements - this works in pretty much anything apart from a onsie!

The most accurate way to describe the gimmick is that is a none intrusive wearable Smile

I purchased RFA Productions' Miller Index some years ago. Requires (2) It's advertised as the size of a playing card. Maybe I shouldn't have posted this and don't mean to talk about a different product (sort of) I'm just trying to justify, as everyone else here, the claims and ease of use.
I may ?, if it is significantly different than what I already have.

This does look good though. So a while back, I thought about eliminating a color. This way, now 26 cards. At that point and even prefolded, if you use 4 pockets, it’s is minimal pocket space, 6-7 ♥️ ♦️ In each pocket.

Or to save on pocket space further...

you could still give them a free choice and only need the space for one card, if you get a 52 pocket jacket

Hey guys,
I do understand the confusion. You are all familiar with in***es that go in the pockets.
This is different, it’s a one unit device that goes on you comfortably, and it’s always there whenever you need it.
Think of a gadgety wearable that is hidden so clothing style is not an issue here.

Best regards,
Titanas

Don't bother with the ebay listing. It is the wrong price. You will get an email saying they made a "mistake" and then offer a $5.00 discount off regular price.

And who hasn't? "Here you go, Mom!"

If this ind** has to be stuffed down your pants or inside your shirt, I don't think this is an advancement.

The Q Ind** (Quantum Connection) fits a complete deck into your two front jeans pockets without a "bulge" Smile Retrieval time: about 3-4 seconds. So Skynet would have to beat that for me.

Dean Dill had a version that required another rather large item in play. His strategy for misdirection was excellent. He had the spectator DRAW his card on a sheet of paper, and everyone watched that while you retrieved the folded card from his setup.

I hope Skynet turns out to be an improvement over the already excellent Q Ind**.

Cheers,
Jerry
