Hi,
I'm planning to buy a new wallet to perform CTW, but I'm not sure which one to buy between the Triple Threat, Real man or Infinity Wallet. I'm interested in these ones because I like bifold wallets.

I'm planning to use the wallet as a "normal" wallet or everyday wallet, so the quality of the material is important to me and also the aspect (it has to look like a normal wallet). I know that the Triple Threat is a non-palm wallet, and the Real man wallet and Infinity Wallet are palm wallets but I don't care very much about that, I'm more interested in the aspect and quality. So, I'd like to know which one is the best, and which one you recommend.

Thanks

I don't have Triple threat or infinity so I cannot give them any comments.
I have hip pocket Mullica, real man, and royal card to wallet.

I used Real man wallet as my everyday wallet and it looks really like a everyday wallet.
The leather is nice and durable and the gimmick is hard to find by laymen.
Especially the price is reasonable.
If you wanna buy a not-too-expensive CTW and good quality, real man, and royal card to wallet is my recommandation.

I think Triple threat is killer. I used one for three years but changed over to JOL billfold style.

Triple threat is best used when you hang it out of the pocket and slide the palmed card in sideways, really well made wallet.

My only problem with the Real Man's Wallet is that I find it very difficult to perform CTW as the move is very hard to perform with the sl****.

I've gone through a few wallets but the Triple Threat is my favorite I've owned. I don't carry a wallet every day (prefer a money clip) but when I do walk around gigs, the TTW is the one I take with me.

I've been using the Triple Threat as my everyday wallet for about 5 years now, and it's still in great condition, so that tells you something.

Here is my clumsy routine using Triple Threat. I'm not a pro magician, only a hobbyist with limited skills and resources. So the routine speaks for itself to show the versatility of the wallet.

Comments and opinions are welcome, just please be subtle with me Smile

I use this wallet for my everyday wallet. So it's good and convincing fact if one day you want to do a CTW for your co-workers as they've seen your wallet for a hundreds of times Smile

Hope it helps.

It'll be easier if you put a card (I use my ID) as a guide when you push the card in.
Maybe you can try it.

Accidently found this video.

I own all 3 wallets and I use my Triple Threat as my everyday wallet. I don't like the Real Man's wallet at all. The leather feels very cheap, almost like plastic. The load can also be a bit tight. The Infinity Wallet uses the same load as the Real Man's but the Infinity load is much smoother.

The quality of the Triple Threat and Infinity are both top notch. It comes down to whether you want the no palm option (Triple Threat) or the slide load (Infinity). The Infinity also offers a nice peek, shogun, and index.

Thanks everyone for the responses, I think I'm going to buy the Triple Threat wallet.

Sabitu, I'd like to know why you use the Triple Threat and not the Infinity, I'm just wondering.

I have the infinity wallet and use it as an everyday wallet, it so looks like one and has everything I need and more
Also you have a great peak and a great index system, many outs
It's worth watching the video on alakazam

I used a Triple Threat for about three years. Great wallet. Stayed in really good condition. I've been using a Real Man's for two years. Again, great condition.

I have never had a problem with the Real Man's load. I use a plastic credit card-type thing as a slide.

I use the Triple Threat as my everyday wallet because it's less bulky then the Infinity (I don't use the business card wallet included with the Triple Threat). I haven't had the Infinity that long so I'm sure I'll start using it more once I get comfortable with the slide load.

I don't use the business card wallet either. I palm the card and leave the wallet hanging out of my pocket.

That's exactly how I load the card. You can also insert a business card into the billfold on the Triple Threat and get a closed wallet p--k of the information. This is what I do instead of using the business card wallet for p--ks.

That's a brilliant idea! I think I might try it with an old Student ID of mine. Thanks Smile .

I have a whole lot of CTW wallets, including Tony's Triple Threat and also his Hip Pocket Bombshell. The Triple Threat wallet is one of the best, if not the best, no-palm CTW wallets on the market. I don’t have the Real Man's wallet though I do have Tony's Modifier which allows you to make almost any regular wallet into a CTW wallet with a loading very similar to Real Man's. I don’t have any problems loading the Modifier though it is tough to get the loaded card out of the compartment! I haven't tried the Infinity yet.

JCheng, it depends on how you are most comfortable loading the wallet. Are you OK with palming a card? A lot simpler than it seems if you haven't. If you prefer a No-palm wallet definitely get the Triple Threat. You can't go wrong with it.
