I was actually considering purchasing another wallet from alakazam, namely the Infinity Wallet, but after reading this and seeing the video...

I think I'll just save my money.

Rather give my money to people of Scam School would use them to buy a stock of 3000 rubber dinosaurs.

I'll stick with Tony Miller's wallets. He knows more about wallets than anyone on the planet. The only negative for Tony is that they are priced too low. Check out is new "Modifier".

I personally believe that the world of magic is divided into two groups, one is for professionals and serious students, who want to follow the traditional values and codes with respect and love for the art, the other is the world of kids stuff, stuff like Brian Brushwood and Chriss Angel, whose aesthetic is aimed to impress teenagers who in turn want to learn instantly tricks to impress friends at school and girls and parents...a cancer, in my opinion

The aestethic of Rogue Wallet, with the BB initials on (Once the men used to craft their own initials on personal items...) is clearly an example. Who's got an adult taste would like to appreciate such a thing ?!??!?! .

Talk about suspicious looking. lol
I love the new creative artwork on most of the 'collectable' decks being offered today, but I cringe when I see a youngster
doing 5 minutes of card juggling before getting down to business with a black deck adorned with dayglow pips.

Sorry but I did not get the point.

I love some new creative designs too, absolutely, but the aesthethic of certain products, such as this, remind me of popstar's merchandasing, with their name printed on etc.., like a Justin Bieber's bag or a Miley Cyrus keyring (i don't know if those items actually exists, just making examples...)
It also seem to me that the attitude of Brushwood-like people is "popstarism" (and business), not magic professionalism.
Just my personal opinion.
Personally I am not into card juggling but I see a lot on young magicians which are very very good and creative, they respect magic ethic/codes too, some others no.
I recently watched on you tube some clips from a convention called "Cardistry" (if I rememeber well) where some 15 - 16 years old kids made some really impressive card juggling...

Anyway,
I use the Infinity wallet since it came out, as everyday wallet an as a performance wallet (i use only one 2 functions) and I always felt cool with it, no one never suspected anything,
Thank you Peter Nardi and to everyone who has contributed to make the world aware of the working of the wallet and, much worse, the meanings of our terminology .

I'm not really sure what the issue is, really. I learned my first tricks from Brian Brushwood and have spent way more money in the magic industry since, than I have to show for it.
To the point that he is exposing things, he is really consistent with giving credit and getting permission. He has had folks like Daniel Garcia, David Rangel, Michael Ammar, and many others on his show. They aren't exposing, they're teaching. I understand why exposing and teaching the invisible deck to laypeople really sucks, particularly as it has almost a million views. But generally speaking, most of the tricks are properly identified in history. Another issue is that beginner magicians in my generation aren't going to spend money in the industry until we are actually hooked on performance. The real problem online are the Evan Era types, who just straight up buy props and expose their secrets for views.

Here's a video on Brian's thoughts on teaching magic on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwQJXgQaHiM

Is there anything different in the Rogues Wallet and The Infinity Wallet?

Somebody commented earlier that they are EXACTLY the same in their working.
