In no particular order, these all mentalism / mental magic related props serve real well for me:

1. Real Die Recharge (Promystic)
2. NoBrainer - Bill Abbott
3. Turner Watch (Nobody Knows)
4. Flux (Promystic)
5. The Code - Andy Nyman
Most memorable moment - with Maestro Juan Tamariz & Consuelo Lorgia in FISM Busan 2018.

For me it would be the Alakazam Academy with Marc Paul, DMC's and digital force bag. And Minds4 in 2017. A fantastic weekend and hopefully I'll get to minds7

It's got to be the Stealth Assassin Mayfair wallet for me, as well as the 2 DVD's and the Assassin Q&A that it comes with.

For all-purpose use, a Stealth Assassin Wallet. You get the best configuration of any mentalist wallet, with all necessary features: 2 peeks, invisible load, index.

I prefer the brown (Mayfair) version, which seems sturdier than the black one (and costs less, too).

Switchcraft is by far the best purchase I've made since finding my passion for mentalism.

But just a few other purchases off the top of my head that stand out as great in my eyes(in no particular order)...
Christopher Taylor's Penny Dreadful Detective.
Jan Forster's Penguin Live lecture.
Max Maven's Nothing.

Oh yeah, I can't forget The Ostin Clip. I LOVE that little thing, and it gets a lot of use.

My top 5 satisfying purchase, in no particular order:

1) The download versions of the New York Coin Magic Seminar series
2) Airship Magic's Coin Casket (I EDC two of them, not sure why I carry two of them .. waiting for the quarter version to ship)
3) My collection of Penguin Live lectures
4) Tequila Hustler (used it during a job interview... didn't get the job, but the person interviewing me loved the routine .. was during a phone interview)
5) Toss up between the chop cups I bought from Michael K, Donnie @ Rings N Things 2 or my Leo Smetser Mini Harmonica Cup

Any of my coin gaffs that I've bought from Roy, Todd or Jamie.. As well as a set of Walking Liberties I purchased from Jeff Copeland..

Im a hobbyist with aspirations of performing some day (I'm 50 .. been studying magic for 40 years) .. I love books and downloads so my video library is ever-growing..

While everything in my séance show has a special place where my heart used to be, I would have to say that my prize jewel is the L*NA set up books along with the Key Box. For me, this was the one "book test" that positively 'sang' to me. So much so, that I went ahead and sold my copy of MOABT since I knew I would never perform it again.

All books by David Hoy

He could realy read minds and

The Hoy book test is outstanding in my opinion.

And Anemann of course,

Also like the ideas of Tony Shiels and John Riggs

It means he’s the real Slim Shady.
Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)
