A friend showed it to me. It just rocks. with morgans. It seems impossible that the coin is not in the purse. they show it VERY CLEANLY AND THEIR HANDS EMPTY.
But with no fishy moves, it is gone. ONe of the best things of this type to come along. You wont regret it. skill level low to medium.

Sort of sounds like Toibox for coins.

I received mine in the mail and have been practicing with it.

Very Nice quality leather with wonderful instructions by eric Jones. He is a great teacher.

The only thing I would question is with how long the snap on the flap will last. There is a mechanical life to any type of latch mechanism.

Regardless (for the price), it is well worth it.

If you are already familiar with coin sleights (for example, the various edge/curl grips or palms) then you will be performing with this out of the box. If you are not familiar with coin sleights , then it may take some practice.

As for routines and with what was already mentioned above, think Okito box penetration (for example). You can reveal the penetration in different ways.

With a little creativity, you will have your own routines to perform.

One more thing about FPS vrs PP:
The handling of PP uses clean motivated movements. Nothing suspicious.
As for FPS (and this just my opinion) In watching different product reviewers (as well as the creator), the unload appears to require a movement that would benefit from motivation and/or misdirection. Note: there is a YouTube video with Gregory Wilson performing FPS with a well constructed/scripted routine using good misdirection and justified movements. Based on that video, I may have to pick up the FPS as well. Smile

Someone made the following statement earlier:
“one thing that the FPS coin wallet can do that the PP cannot do………….is secretly add a coin into your hand after dumping a couple from the wallet.

In itself, This is a correct statement being the “subject” of the sentence is “ FPS” and the subject performs the action so to speak.

But I can also say the following about PP as well:
“The performer can secretly add a coin into his hand after dumping coins out of the PP using basic sleight of hand.

Why is this important to know? Because this helps clarify some of the key differences.
- FPS will “secretly hold out the extra coin inside the prop itself” and then the coin can be secretly “unloaded”.
- PP (and any other nongaffed coin purse) requires the performer to use basic sleight of hand to add a coin after dumping coins out of a coin purse.

I hope this helps clarify the differences.
