It has been discussed at a number of places in this forum (try a search). I have used it and recommend it (I'd go for the SUC II case).

For a detailed description visit Here!
and look at "items to buy".

I agree. Go for SUC II. Carry your business cards and credit cards in it-- actually use it day-to-day. You are always good to go for super simple impromptu mind-reading. I was fortunate to have a good magician friend dissuade from Thought Transmitter and pursue SUC II.

Good Luck.

I certainly agree with all about SUC; I've recommended it several times on this board.

My preference, however (along with several others I know), is for the original SUC (Mark sells both). It's thinner, less complicated, and more like a simple, duo-fold card case.

This is one of the very best 'wallets' you can use and it is only limited by your imagination.

Like Doug, the original SUC is exactly that - original. Version 2 has a few extra bells and whistles, but doesn't look as good.

It is sort of "different strokes for different folks". SUC II can do more but the original SUC works very well for what it was intended to do. Sometimes more is not better, but that's in the eyes of the beholder.

Hi,

Buy the wallet now... I like SUC1. While you are at it, ask Mark about the book he wrote that details effects to be done with it. It includes photoready items that are great!

Not really what it was meant for, But I wanted to do a card to wallet and carry the wallet in my front trouser pocket. with SUC2 which is the model I have and I assume it will also work with Suc1, provided you can Murcury fold (or similar) the case is perfect. I usually have a couple of elastic bands around it too.

I recently bought this after reading the many recommendations by people in this forum as well as other places where trusted opinions exist.

Just got mine the other day and I am very happy with the product and very excited to add a new level to my more intimate sets.

I don't think you will be let down.

Perhaps an alternate to this would be a peek, something along the lines of a peek found in peek performances.

This seems to make more sense, why would you have someone put something back into your wallet?

the wallet doesn’t seem to make sense, anyone else have this view?

Well, I just got mine, and, honestly, I think it's great. I don't currently plan to put anything IN the wallet, but plan to use it to apparently remove my prediction FROM the wallet. There are so many other uses of this utility item.

I hand the case to the volunteer and ask him to open it and to remove the Borders Book store gift card in the left hand pocket. It's not really a wallet. It's a post-it note pad holder (that's my way of using it). Without saying a word about examining the case, the participant has had the opportunity to freely handle the case and to remove the gift card from a pocket. He is then instructed to write his information on the label affixed to reverse side of the card while the performer's back is turned. This, the performer explains is two-fold. It causes the spectator's conscious mind to focus on what he wrote and the fact that he wrote it will prevent the volunteer from changing his mind later, making the performer look foolish.

As the performer replaces the card in the pocket of the case he notes that this will further isolate the volunteer's information preventing anyone, most of all you, from seeing it. You then allow the hot half to drop down, where the left fingers begin to bring it up until it's back to back with the right hand half. which holds the post-it note pad. During this innocent maneuver you have been able to gllmpse the information written on a label affixed to the back of the plastic gift card.

The performer proceeds to write his impression of the volunteer's thought on the top sheet of the post-it note pad without allowing anyone to see what he has written. The volunteer is asked to reveal his secret thought. The performer pull off the top sheet of the pad and sticks it to his forehead. "That's exactly what I had in mind, too!" the performer states as everyone stares at the spectator's thought on the page stuck to the performer's forehead. Yep! It gets a laugh... but they're also baffled.

I then remove the gift card (the store will program the card for the amount of the gift, preferably $20) and hand it to the volunteer as a reward for their participation. As Carl B. would say, "Every move, a picture!"

I have searched all over for a utility wallet or like device and the SUC has won hands down. I can't say enough about this great item... or can I? Get one!
