I've had the Mesika wallet for about a year and love it. It does require a folded card, but I've grown to actually
prefer it that way. It is my everyday wallet and works great for that also. One last thing, my wife and I were recently in Belgium and it holds Euro's fine also.

Fortunately I have no problems using the Real Man's Wallet with our currency. I've been using it for a few years now and really love it as it's quite uncommon here to have a wallet of the longer variety in the inside jacket pocket. With some thought I believe one can also have the card appear in a small envelope as well. A little tight, but possible perhaps.

The reveal is just great and it's a nice moment when the compartment is popped open and the card is there - pull it out slightly and then let them remove it.

I bought the Royal wallet from Frank when they were still being made. I love this wallet. I have used it as my everyday wallet ever since I got it. Unfortuantely, with summer heat, rainstorms, wear and tear, just like a real wallet, this one is getting a bit limp and tattered. I would love to buy two or three more of these if they were available. They are pretty much perfect for how I like the wallet to be and how I do the effect.

I am interesting in the Hip Pocket Mullica...

Other than it being half the size, what is the other main difference from the standard Mullica Wallet? I am guessing the load works primarily the same way, thus the Mullica name.

Thanks.

I had the same problem and searched and searched to find the right wallet for me, and then finally found what I was looking for, and a friend of mine also loved these wallets. We got the rest of their stock on those wallets, and now we know they don't produce those types of wallets any more, so when my 2 wear out to an unusable condition, I will have to look for another wallet that is smiler or we wear thinking of getting them made!!

Thanks.

Tom.

What is it that you don't like about card-to-wallet wallets?

Personally I don't like a wallet that requires a folded card.
I don't like a wallet that is hard to load without mods.
I don't like a wallet that can't hold currency that is not folded.
(it's ok if the bills fold as the wallet folds up tho)


I agree with all of these points, adding one:
It must be non-leather. That's always been a deal-breaker, so I'm inexperienced with these wallets. I think I would also prefer for the card to come from a zippered compartment.

So far the wallet that seems best to me is the Royal Card to wallet but they are no longer being made, apparently. They load easier then the Draun wallet, they load an unfolded card unlike the Mesika wallet.


Frank - good news - this wallet is BACK! Royal has started making them again. We have a number of them in stock. They are really great CTWs!

Im sure other dealers will stock this fine item as well.

I use a regular wallet with a double back card in it - control card to top, reveal the wallet, peel the card out onto the deck, DL and hand out card.
Noone seems to care that they didn't remove the wallet themselves. And it gives good practice in ditching the gaff card.

Im using the JOC Plus small, it's a very very very very cool wallet!

Just a lil big for a young guy like me, but still I get away with it.

And after, you can contol the DB to the bottom, clip that card to the card next to it at the inside corner with your pinky and spread the cards face up to demonstrate that there wasn't a duplicate (or for the Youtube wise guy who may say, "You used a DB card, man!) Smile

I once took the signed card back, controlled DB to the bottom and said I could make all the cards disappear - turned them over with a paddle-esque move to show all the faces gone, just a full DB deck.

Then said that "it's not really making them disappear though" and switched in the omni deck leaving only signed card on top. I was very proud of myself for that little bit of impromptu. It was probably the best reaction I've ever had.

I hate the wallet I'm using now. There never seems to be enough money in it.

I LOVE the JOL No Palm Wallet. The new one is not made exactly the way mine is (I like the layout of mine better) but it's a great CTW. Is a signed card, loads in a SPLIT SECOND. Almost no skill required. Looks great, and kills them.

In my opinion, an envelop is overkill. YES, it's a GREAT effect with an envelope, but I've never had a lacking reaction without it. Their signed card is still in a zipper compartment in the wallet.

You can find it at http://www.wizardcraft.com/OConnellJOL.htm Go about half way down the page.

Notice on the attached you tube video a few presentations on Card to Wallet.

Interesting thing for me is that Alex Elmsleys which looks like pure sleight of hand looks like the smoother of the lot !!

Favorite Wallet= Yigal and Mesika's. Its the one I have.

I've held and played with multiple wallets. None of them are as sleek and real as Y&Ms. It looks so normal. Its the only wallet I use. Its my actual wallet that I use everyday as well. I can show all the sides. Even the insertion point looks like its part of the wallet. Like that's how its naturally stitched.

Although I VERY rarely put cards back there...I put people's rings back there. It engages the people more because its something that belongs to them. Its a very strong routine and even if I don't want the applause (which I don't) I always get it after I do this effect. Its a perfect closer and you end it with "I now have all your credit cards, thank you. Have a good night"

Persist.
