This might be an issue. The wallet is really really large. Personally I can’t imagine using such a wallet as my every day wallet. Probably I will use it as something where I carry some cards or whatever. I think I will find a good solution for this. The brainwave itself is clean. But I find it very pricey for what it does - even though the quality is nice. I will give you some more about this after playing around with it for a while.

So, what should I say about this? I am still a bit unsure: I like the Brainwave method that I can do with this wallet and I will definitely use this. The quality is good and it does what it has promised quite well. But boy, is this large. It's 15.5 cm folded up. I can't imagine using this as something I will carry around with me on a daily basis. I don't even have pockets where this might fit into. But I wouldn't say that it screams magic prop though - If I say to someone that's my wallet where I carry some cards or whatever this might work very well I guess.

You are not limited to some sort of Brainwace effect of course as you have an I***x which makes this a great tool. I haven't had this type of wallet, so I am fine with it - but it's pricey though in my opinion. You can use this as a peek wallet as well, but I wouldn't recommend buying it on that purpose because there are way better wallets for this on the market.

So, yeah. It's fine. I will use it. But nothing groundbreaking for me though. If you like what you see in the trailer and you have some money that needs to be spend: Go for it. If not, don't.


Sorry if this isn't what you expected me to say, but it's kind of difficult. If you have any questions, feel free to pm me.

Daniel, appreciate your review of this wallet. I like wallets a lot and have quite a few and was very interested in this one. However, what I saw on the sale video I can currently do with one or most of my other wallets very well. I did not see the "gotta" have this effect. And, for a good multi-out wallet I use the Heirloom Wallet - though I am not sure if it is even available anymore. So, again, thanks for the valuable information.

I only own several peek wallets like Alias, Razor, Viper etc and not the wallets mentioned in the ad copy (like LePaul), so I can’t really say if the method here is something completely new. You have a well hidden i***x for the Brainwave effect though.

Absolutely (though I think spectators don't care). I've seen plenty of young people, my mid-twenties son-in-law included, who carry wallets even bigger than this.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Size of the wallet is a personal choice--this type of wallet is designed to be kept in the breast pocket of a sportjacket.

The wallet has a lot more built into it than has been mentioned here.

Just got this- very clever, very practical, I actually like the size (and I’m 24- have used JOL at gigs for years). Not an everyday carry- this is a gigging wallet.

Instructions are terrible, wallet make is wonderful but the ... ma***** will fall out- beware. Load to wallet needs to be reworked- but not hard.

All in all, as someone who designs and builds magic wallets, I’m happy with this as it proposes something ACTUALLY NEW.

Wallet design is very nice- though the infinite credit card pockets could have been converted into a space for a lovely out to lunch pocket. Oh well!
