I had and used the original too! And always enjoyed performing the routine with it! However it has been sitting in my drawer for years now and the thought of getting a new (and possibly improved version) is pretty exciting!

James (can't recall his last name) has worked with the family to keep things going with (at least some of) Ray's products. So you can still get this....

I actually like the Carlyle wallet better, and after watching the referenced PropDog video, I think I'm just going to get another one of those as a(nother) backup...

I don't have V2, but from what I understand, the big difference between V1 & V2 was that in V1, you handed the wallet to the participant, and they wrote on a post it note, closed the wallet and handed it back to you. It was a unique wallet compared to other peek wallets in that way. Then, along came V2, which was more like a standard peek wallet in that you had the participant write on a business card and then placed it inside the wallet. I always loved V1 because it was organic to have the Post It note inside.

This V3 version looks like it's more an updated version of V2. Too bad, because I like the Post It note feature. I have a few of the Carlyle ones as back ups and will continue to use them.


I don’t think the Carlyle Wallet is available anymore since Mr Carlyle has passed.

Sorry I can’t compare it to V1 and V2 but I have had it for a couple days and I absolutely love this thing. The only thing I will say is the What you don’t want to be visible is visible especially when there’s writing. I have fixed this by doubling up on the black tint. I had some from a different wallet. Otherwise it’s amazing. Even though it’s visible. It really doesn’t matter. But the way that it comes there’s no way you can leave it on the table outside in front of someone face up without them seeing clearly right through it. Then again you were just turn it over anyway. So that’s my one issue. I also had to cut a few things to make it look right. But that could just be my OCD LOL. Overall I’m in love with this wallet. I’m so use to having to tweak everything I buy these days that I didn’t mind doing it.

You can easily cut a piece of clear plastic and double it up as mentioned above or spray it with a black Matt spray and put that film in as well . I have made adjustments and changed bulbs batteries and lights on lots of these over the years and although you shouldn’t W have to there will be a way of making it perfect imo . Currently I use the mastermind version of this where the peek area is large and lighting is fantastic but the leather / faux material is very weak and even an elastic band keeping being dragged off it frays the material immediately . So if I buy this V3 it would only be if the leather / quality is strong . Can anyone tell me how durable they think that aspect of this is ? Thanks for any help Gaz 😊

I think www.PropDog.co.uk covered this. It isn't leather and is cheap material.

To be fair, I've had cheap plastic card wallets and they have lasted okay.

But if you are looking for quality, look elsewhere.

I don’t mind if it’s out and out plastic although would prefer leather it’s generally just the fake leather looking ones that seem to fall to pieces quickly Gaz 😊

So yes I agree with the card wallet type like the original V1 TT was , they do tend to last but look just cheap

Oh yeah, I remember that issue with the single layer. It used to be doubled, and perfectly fine. Then one day, they stopped having two. Seems like a very bizarre change, as the secret then becomes obvious.

On a lark, I ordered a new Mastermind Wallet from Amazon. After weather delays it arrived today.

The leather on the Mastermind I received is a bit more supple. I like it. They've also made a change to the activation button. It is now easier activate, and you're less likely to miss the sweet spot. I took the red plastic out of my TT Pro and put it into my older Mastermind - works great!

I like a leather version in principle also but my first impression was that I find the transparent plastic window quite suspicious
and that this is not the case with the original TT#1 by its design for me. I therefore still tend to favor TT#1 and reactivate TT#1
with fresh batteries.

My business cards are black with my details in white print so I have a clear plastic card that I had made in their with my white printed details on it so hence it just looks like I have my standard black business card in the slot . Nothing suspicious at all for me now and the peek is perfect for my set up Gaz 😊 ps that it’s in the mastermind but I assuming the V3 still has the same size clear window on it like the original TT etc . Can anyone advise on this please , best wishes Gaz 😊

So, which is better? The TT Pro V3, or the Mastermind Wallet?
It's all in the reflexes.
