The card is never taken out of sight in this effect Martin . The card goes in the visible clear pocket you turn it over to the show the note underneath and give them everything🙂

The card goes out of sight when you turn the wallet over, no?

Well yeah but it’s not ever out of sight you just turn it over and hand it to them showing them the note . Nothing goes out of sight in the way that you implied . Nothing goes in your pocket either from their perspective and in fact mine goes on a magnet on the outside of my back pocket . It’s very clean imho , but your mileage obviously varies and that’s fair enough too . Best wishes Gaz 🙂

I didn't say anything goes into your pocket. And whichever way you cut it, the card does go out of sight. Maybe that will fly as a mental magic effect for some audiences but it's very poor as a mentalism effect, in my opinion, which is the direction I'm looking at it from. If you're going to predict a card chosen by a spectator I would recommend using a method where you don't take the card from them and put it into a wallet only to take it out again a few seconds later. But everyone has different tastes and I hope you continue to entertain with this. It would be a dull world if we all felt the same about everything.

Regards, Martin

I agree Martin and as I don’t use it as a mentalism effect it works well for me . I basically do magic and sometimes a touch of mental magic . Very best wishes Gaz 🙂

Some interesting viewponts on both sides.
To use this the way it is presented in the demo, yes, it is a cool trick.
One thing that has been overlooked is it is a gimmick... the demo is just one aspect of its' use.
I see it as a tool that presents itself for use in a mental epic style trick. The predictions are all written on the money.

If you re-watch Mr. Mason's routine, spec.'s eyes, once they know there is $$$ involved, they are (ALL) looking down!
Then, the 'WOWS' are heard. Wonderful performance. Smile

I am only a long time hobbyist but this is a great effect for sure,with lockdown have only performed it to family and friends but it goes down really well especially the fact you can change the force 52 times.The reaction I have been getting has been fantastic, family are the worst critics of your magic so if they like it you're onto a winner

Good deal on a great prop.
No wonder it sold out so quickly.
Curious how many they were selling at that price.

Really? Well then who wrote this?

So if I ask you to slide out a card, sight unseen, then I put it in my pocket only to bring it out a few seconds later to prove that it matches my prediction which I take out of my other pocket, you think that is of no consequence?

Martin Pulman did, I pulled him immediately on it at the the time but he forgets what he does say half the time and then he tries to back track lol Gaz 😊

If a new tick is already 40 to 50% off, just how good can it be?

Just received my wallet.

Can anyone provide me the technique to work the wallet "in" so it is not so stiff. I suppose its just cramming stuff in pulling it out, stuff it in, pull it out.... repeat until adequate (i.e. until a poker card can slip in and out easily)?

My non gloss business cards are also not easy to slip out for the billet methods -- I suppose I need to buy glossies!!!

Regards,
Phil

I just force loads of playing cards in all the pockets and leave for 24 hours. Then it’s as smooth as silk Gaz 😊
