I am looking for the best peek device. My criteria is the easiest load of card, and the most effortless peek.

The three devices I'm considering are the SUC, the Stealth Wallet, and the Ultimate Caper Case.

Any insight would be appreciated.

SUC.

It is low tech, easy to use and looks very nice.
- and the peek option is just a minor part of what you can use it for.

Stealth, because you can go out and purchase it now!

Its also a wallet, not just a card holder, works well as an everday wallet for cash and cards etc.

The SUC is the best option. IMO.

There are several threads about peek cases out there but perhaps the question exposes the real problem. Dyl suggests that problem in his post above. Mark Striving's SUC is not being made right now and who knows when or if it will be. There are references in threads to Dr. Jaks wallets, etc., but where can you find them unless you happen upon a used one? I don't believe Piatt is making cases anymore (please correct me if I am wrong). Jerry O'Connell makes a Himber style wallet with a peek feature. I believe Robert Cassidy has a non-leather case on his website about which little has been written. Evildan is reputed to do excellent work on custom wallets but he indicates there is a waiting list. So, as far as I know, if you want instant gratification you are pretty much restricted to the Stealth, Mind Spy, or one of the other devices working on other principles such as the Thought Transmitter. Are there any other viable choices out there that I am missing? If so, I am sure others might be interested in knowing about them.

I have discovered that the himber wallet can do everything you can ever ask from it. which my book details. Apart from that SUC's are good, and so is stealth wallets.

Thanks for the responses.


The ultimate caper case (Piatt) is advertised at:
http://www.stevensmagic.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=5333

and the SUC not the sucII is advertised at:
http://www.1magicshop.com/product_info.php/products_id/186

So I am assuming these are in stock, but you never know until you actually order.

I'm not sure how the caper case works to get the peek, but it can be but in the specs hand after the card is loaded. The SUC can't, but the peak is easier and it's can do more things.

The Stealth requires you open the wallet again for the peek.

I've read a few posts where the SUC was a little tricky getting the card in the right slot.

oh well. It's great to have a site that offers so much information to make a educated decision.

Ok, scratch 1magicshop from the list. Not an option.

Opening the Stealth wallet a second time for the peek is not a problem. Simply start to describe the picture, word, etc. and then suddenly "realize" that it might be better to duplicate their thought on your own blank card.

Pit Boss,

Thank you! That's a fabulous idea. It makes a real big difference.

I wonder if there are any other ideas or resources to best utilize Stealth?

Rockbrunnen-

Check out "Hollywood or Bust" by Colin Miller at the Underground Collective (http://www.underground-collective.co.uk). It stuns people!

Bob,

Can you tell me how “Hollywood or Bust” compares with “Sensory Projection”, also about movies, and also by the Underground Collective?

Thank you, Bob.

I have just read the "Hollywood or Bust" in "The Cheetah's Handbook".

What a concept!

Using the Stealth instead of CT, I have a good reason to open the Stealth a secon time for the peek. That's goooooood.

I can't compare "Hollywood or Bust" with "Sensory Projection" because I'm not familiar with "Sensory Projection". "Hollywood or Bust" is a mindreading routine with a movie theme. The Underground Collective is a fine resource and I've gotten very good things there.

the SUC CAN be put into the specs outstretched palm after the card has been loaded, its a matter of having the balls to do so, try it on yourself and you cannot tell by touch alone.

Hollywood or Bust is included in both the stealth and mindspy instructions.

It's something you use to peek written information.

Yes I believe Peter did a Hollywood or Bust routine on the online demo if I'm not mistaken. I did order a stealth so I'm waiting for it's arrival.

Stealth's great but I was recently introduced to the Zing wallet. Nice wallet, well made but a bit expensive I hear.
