After a few weeks with Quiver, and also talking with a friend who has one, we are both finding that coins tend to not always pour out when the purse is opened and tipped. It seems to be a tight fit (I am using 2 half-dollars on either side). Sometimes they come out, sometimes I have to reach in. Not a big deal, but turning the purse upside-down and dumping a few coins onto the hand also helps sell that it is empty. Anybody else having this issue? Solutions? (I have tried a grip that in no way touches the tab, but still find the coins get caught in the bottom).
Magic is where dreams become reality and reality becomes a dream.

I am using Canadian Loonies and have the same sort of problem. Not a big deal but I would also be interested in hearing any solutions.

Hmm I don't have the problems you guys are mentioning. This said, mine is a VDR, not Quiver. I don't think there should be any difference : it's the same product. I think VDR is just the old name of Quiver. This is worth mentioning however.

After working with it, I have found that if I open it farther and rattle the coins inside before I tip over then I don't have any stick. This is a very nice product and happy with the purchase.

If you are using billets can it be examined?

Just got my Quiver today (yea, I know, late to the party), I'm having difficulty opening the 'hidden' side one handed. If I transfer the purse from my left hand to my right and open it I can easily do either side as needed, but one-handed as shown in the video just doesn't work for me, or it looks so fiddly that something is obviously going on. Granted I've only been playing with it for an hour or so, but just can't get it. Is it the newness, or am I handling it wrong?

I had problems at first.
Took me 3-4 days messing with it.
Finally “got it”.

Now I have no issues.
This is one that just takes experimentation and you will get it.

Keep trying

I have very dry hands and sometimes this causes a problem as does palming and card and coin stuff.

Just have to learn how to do the same stuff with dry hand disability. I guess it's not the worst affliction.

I'm considering buying this. Is there a FB page created for users of it?

I had this gem when it very first came out and purchased it direct from Kelvin but this is the first I've heard of a FB page do you have a link or do we just put Quiver in the FB search ?

This is one of the best things to come out in a long time in fact I think its that good I've just ordered a second one Smile

Thanks for the informative review Alex. Does anyone know a place to buy Quiver in the US? It seems like an amazing effect. Everywhere I've checked seems to be sold out. Thanks very much in advance.

Hocus Pocus shows that they have them in stock, but I have purchased items from them in the past where they claimed in stock but after paying they told me the items were back ordered. So try asking them first.

Another thing to do is search for VDR Wallet. It's the old name but the same wallet. I bought my from a European page but that may be a bit expensive in shipping..

How much luck have people had using this like a mystery box? I love the ability to show the purse empty, but do you feel like it raises to much suspicion?
