Nice job but I have a couple of things that are pet peeves about magic reviews.

1) Why have music while you are talking? I don't get it.
2) Try to reduce repetition. You talk before the trailer, during the trailer and then after the trailer. In many cases you are repeating yourself.

For fire wallets, I would want to know how easy it is to change the flint, how thick the wallet is once you add a few credit cards, ID, and cash. and how many hours it will work on one fueling. Also is the flint wheel easy to use? Some flint wheels are so small they seem to dig into your finger. The better ones are wide which allows a bigger spark with less effort.

Thanks

Thanks for your input Mike, I really appreciate it! I will definitely implement these things, they make sense! For future reviews I will dig more into the item how you explained. New to the review thing and didn't even think to mention these things, but definitely should have mentioned it.

To answer the questions you have about the wallet though -
Flint is very easy to change out just need a screwdriver to remove spring and replace flint.
Wallet can get pretty thick (depending on how many cards you have in the wallet) and there is 2 metal plates and a low strength magnet to get the fire portion to lock. Without any cards in the wallet it is 7/8" thick.
Flint wheel is an easy strike, I would say it is a little larger than a zippo lighter wheel.

Seriously thank you for commenting!

I appreciate you taking my comments in the way they were intended. I'm curious if there are any people who feel the opposite way I do about music.

Does anyone ever watch a review show and say to themselves "this would be so much better with music in the background"?

I don't too often look at reviews as out of the 10 or 15 minutes the video lasts, they can generally be cut in half. Looked at one the other day and the guy was promoting himself for the first 5 and the next 10 minutes was him just running on repeating himself and such. I thing instead of throwing the companies promo in, have a link for it. Generally I think most have seen the promo/trailer already and want the info on the product. A lot of the background music can be annoying, I didn't think James' was too bad, but it wasn't needed. Even having an outline or list of talking point to follow might be a good idea. YMMV

I don't mind the trailer because it's easy to skip it if you want. Ideally, the reviewer would edit the trailer to cut out the two minutes of leaves blowing down the sidewalk and the alley with graffiti on the walls.

I agree wholeheartedly with your comments about the music. Different people like different types of music so the reviewer might be pleasing a small portion of the audience and annoying the rest! Better to leave out the music altogether.

Thanks for the review James!

Any news on how long the lighter fluid would last in the lighter fluid chamber?

Thanks!

Hi Logan,
Pretty standard as far as the fire wallets go, I fully filled the wallet and lit it a few times, let it sit and the next day it still lit, not a large flame nor would I recommend that because the more fuel you have on the area that flames the longer the material will last because you are burning the fuel and not the material.

Just messing with it as much as I could though I would say it could last you a good amount of time before needing to refill, it really is hard to give a solid answer to it because there are a lot of different variables (ie. how long you leave it lit for, how many times you light, and it might dry up faster if in dryer areas of the world.)

Hope that gave a little clarity even though it wasn't a completely straight answer, but it is hard to say exactly a solid number.

The review was great. The music was not an issue at all. Keep up the great reviews! Smile

Sorry, the review was poor, plus music should never never be played once the person starts doing a review, simple as that. Music on the intro is ok but must stop after who wants to hear a demo when you cant concentrate on what is being said as for the wallets there is no mention of the size the review missed so many things out far to much waffle and talking far to quick, Nice man trying his best but remember all people that do reviews don't mean that there good at it just like any job, plus for me the best wallet fire wallet was by therta magic as for the way it worked with the hinged snap back effect. The thing that let it down was the poor quality of leather that's why they got pulled in the end what people need to understand when making a fire wallet is it needs to be not soft leather but harder leather plus fire-resistant to last leather can still be harder but still be quality plus having had so many wallets soft leather does where much quicker I hope that Theatre magic brings out there wallet again, this time spending more money on it. I would pay £60 -£70 if this was made in a harder leather and more quilty on the production of this better to last than pay less and have to buy another again. Smile

It looks as if the credit card slots are just one piece of leather with some slits cut in it as opposed to individual sleeves. That unfortunately makes this one a pass for me. Any idea when Theater Magic is re-releasing Fire Wallet 2.0? I would buy that again in a heartbeat (I've had two of them) but mine have finally worn out.

Yes was told from the Maker that there looking to Have it remade and new features it was the best fire wallet out there but the leather was very cheap just needs them not to cut corners when remanufacturing Smile
