This opinion , I respect by the way , does not give any explanations why it would be a disappointement.What are the facts or arguments.NONE.

So much is possible with it that sometimes it's all Dr.X needs. Well the wallet and my super-amazing mental manipulating powers duh! Buy one or be crushed under the feet of the mentalists in the know. The Outlaw wallet was a HUGE disappointment.

Hi Pete!

All Hail Dr.X
Your Momma Does!

Here is the review I posted on the MAGIC Café on January 2006.I give FACTS .

I repeat the the outlaw wallet is just AWESOME!!!!


"I received my OUTLAW wallet today.Great product.

First comment : great service and very good communication with the guys who created this wallet.


I read the positive comments from Tony Razzano in another thread. I mostly agree with him that it is a very good peek wallet reasonably priced.The construction is pretty good also.


I will not repeat all the things you can do with this wallet since Mr Razzano already clearly exposed these
facts.

The main purpose of the wallet is the peek though.This is a very CLEAN peek. I own a SUC ( Sight Unseen Case from Strivings , a Stealth Wallet from Peter Nardi , a Thought Transmitter from Cornelius , a Brain Scan Wallet from John T. Sheets and an Insight wallet from Larry Becker . I like wallets , I know .So I can compare.

The peek with the Outlaw is simple , direct and do not involve opening the wallet again after the card was put in. You can ask the spectator to hold the wallet in his closed hands while you read his thoughts.
You can not really do that with a SUC for instance.

The Stealth and Insight wallets involve opening the wallet again before the peek.

The Thought Transmitter does not really look like a real everyday wallet and depends on a little something you need to replace sometimes.The light conditions is also an issue with this wallet.

The Brain Scan wallet is also pretty ingenious but not as direct as the Outlaw. First you fold and place the card in the outside pocket.Then you reopen to take a small post-it note. Yes you have a good justification and less suspicious reason to reopen the wallet.But with the Outlaw you do not even have to bother with justifications.


With the outlaw you place apparently the business card ( with the spectator's design) in between 2 other cards already in the wallet and close it.Done. You can read or duplicate immediatly.


All in all you can not go wrong with this wallet.


A downside : no routines explained in the instructions.If you are new in the peek wallet market it is a problem.For instance the SUC from Strivings came with a 20 pages instruction booklet with several routines.I think that the Outlaw team is already working on this right now.


Hope it could help . "

As do I. The Outlaw is an excellent peek an pocket/swami wallet.

Doctor X, have you seen the Outlaw? The only way I can see you being disapointed was if you missed all of the advertisment and reviews and thought that the Outlaw was pocket wallet sized instead of business card sized.

I have played with four or five wallets and have always sold them. The Outlaw is the only one that I have kept and actually use. It is in my pocket right as we speak, or type. I love it!!

The Stealth Assassin is the best in my view for the simple reason it is the most versatile, also one of the peeks does NOT require the wallet to be opened. When you watch the Assassin dvds the timing of when the wallet is opened is totally logical and never remembered by the audience.

I wouldn't bother with the Thought Transmitter, it is clever but it just doesn't look like anything you could actually buy or would want to have on you.

The Outlaw wallet is a good working peek wallet but really doesn't have any benefit over the Assassin apart from being cheaper. I used mine for a few weeks and went back to the Assassin purely on the basis that the AUDIENCE really didn't acknowledge any difference whether I opened the wallet or not so for me having all of the options of the Assassin out did the Outlaw.

All in all I think you need to work with what you are comfortable with, the Outlaw certainly suits some as does the Assassin.. One mans peek wallet is another mans ebay item..

I like the Stealth Assassin, a lot. I'm not crazy about having to open up the wallet for the p**k, but it is, as others have noted, well justified. Plus it has the SUC principle. It also looks like a real wallet (if a semi-unconventional one), and I use it as my everyday wallet. Toss in the billet index and, all in all, this is a superb utility device.

Does anyone know if either the Vendetta wallet or the Zingg wallet will be available again or where I can get one? I have not been able to locate any of these and have been looking for quite a while. Please help!

I realize that this is an old thread that has been resurrected, but it should be moved to Inner Thoughts as the title of the thread itself amounts to exposure. I guess we weren't as strict about that seven years ago.

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.


Never really understood the need for a p**k wallet when a b*****t s****h or p**k achieves the same result without the need to carry an extra prop.

I have the sa-wallet. It's great. PM me if you want to read the whole title, because I'm not going to spoil it in an open thread. It's a great investment and a great prop to use.

I started to get all worked up thinking the Great Evil Dan was making wallets again. Thanks Bob for pointing out that this was an old thread. I can return to only hoping that he starts making wallets again............

"Never really understood the need for a p**k wallet when a b*****t s****h or p**k achieves the same result without the need to carry an extra prop."

This is a subject that has been discussed widely on the Café. It all comes down to the situation/environment, and personal opinion, The argument could go on forever really. In the end, the question raised could be why have them wri*e anything at all?

I agree that this should be moved as well.

The irony here is that everyone is using asterisks, as in p**k, when the device and the word "peek" are openly used in the title of this publicly accessible thread.

Great Observation Bob... I wonder why people wonder if your using something to makes us wonder.

If you are familiar with Annemann you wouldn't need any special anything. You would just do that thing and know all things.

Like Colin Mcleod tweeted this week or twatted because he already tweeted it. Smile "Improve or master the classics, instead of looking for something new" (I do paraphrase), which is a bad version of something old.

Best to all of you. Give someone the best part of there day every time you meet them.

I have bought and tested many different types of these wallets. Many friends have asked me for my opinion as I use them in real performance conditions on a regular basis. The answer is simple. There are many great wallets with different options. What is best is the one you will use in your performances. It is a personal preference and can not be simply answered here. Buy the top ones listed here one at a time. If you don't like it, sell it in the for sale section and move on to another one until you find the one that works best for you. It may not even be a wallet! Docc Hilford has a great simple method with just a stack of business cards.
