Pre-ordered this quite sometime back... still waiting for the pics at least.
With all those who've seen it raving about it... it should be worth the wait.

So forget the shipping date issue...

Why is this now listed for $100 on the Outlaw Effects website? I think I remember seeing the pre-order price go away and be replaced with $125 for a brief period. Why the reduction?

Because the shipping was pushed back about 10 days. When the wallets come in again it goes back to $125

Here's the skinny boys, and it was a black day at Outlaw about a week ago.

About 7 days ago the box of Diablos came in from my manufacturer. It's a small company overseas that makes some of the most famous wallets in magic (including the Magnum and Hideout)

The Diablo has some very precise gaffs in it.

When I took out the first wallet and tried it, there was something wrong. One of the gaffs was literally only 5 millimeters off, but it caused the "action" to be a little harder than it should be.

It was still workable, and in fact Ran Pink has been using one for over a week while he routines some ideas.

The wallet worked, but it would take a little practice and a bit of a learning curve.

That was not acceptable

It had to work like a hot knife through butter, like the prototype I approved.

The manufacturer made a gaff off by 5 millimeters and I will not ship them like that.

I tossed 80 wallets out, period.

I could have shipped them.

I'm a bit stressed just from waiting for the original shipment to get here, you can not imagine how I felt when I new I could not ship the wallets when they arrived last week.

I'm loyal to the manufacturer and as soon as he learned that his workers had blown the gaff they started on a new run.

The run will be here in about a week.

It was very hard not to ship these because they do work, just not as easily as they should.

I just didn't want even a single buyer saying "it takes some practice and then you get used to it".

It is as easy as putting the card in the pocket, and that's the one I'm going ta ship.

Much respect to Rick for not shipping it till it's right. I'm more than happy to wait a little longer for something that works like it should.
Every problem contains the seeds of its own solution. Unfortunately every problem also contains the seeds of an infinite number of non-solutions, so that first part really isn't super helpful.

Rick, I don't think anyone would be upset with this news, Outlaw has set a level for grat service and perfect products, if anything people should salute your level of product quality, another words don't mind the wait at all thanks

*sigh*... as said before, patience is not one of my most developed talents... but I highly respect your quality focussed business conduct.

I've been considering a wallet like this for more than a couple of years and am very pleased to wait for a correctly functioning model. Having been burned on more than one occasion partly by my own eagerness and partly by dealer greed I lean a little too far toward the skeptical side when it comes to magic business ethics.

The obvious answer to the following question is "...if you are purchasing one of these then you should already know what to do with it..." , and I pretty much do --- but not being the most creative guy in the world my preference is to purchase well thought out routines and then tweak them over time to suit my presentational style (or lack of such). Does Outlaw Effects publish routines with their wallets and/or can those in the know recommend good sources for routines utilizing a wallet like Opus Diablo? My hope would be to use this wallet in such a way that it is hardly remembered as being part of the routine. I have the first set of Osterlind DVDs but not Banacheck.

Best wishes to Outlaw Effects for success with this and other endeavors.
