New from Leo Smetser, looks like a nice mix of effects. I love Leo’s stuff always too quality.

Love everything Leo puts out. Zero magic drawer junk, all workers. This really is a whole act in one package.

Well I Inquired about this, and asked when it will be available and heard nothing. I don't do preorder.

I believe Alakazam will have it next week. I hope this is stainless steel like his other props. I imagine the shells will be easy to use due to the flat sides

I have Giovanni Livera's Rope, Nut & Knot. I need more practice but it's a beautiful routine. Giovanni performing it:

Seems pretty pricey for what you get.

The price isn't just for the props...give it some thought.

With you 100% +. You are getting super high quality props (Leo's always are) as well as well taught and thought out routines that have been honed in the real world by a working pro the caliber of Leo. A set of "shells and peas" (looks like the rounded lock nuts in the box). A set of "ring on string along the lines of charming Chinese challenge (the removable nuts and string) and a very nice looking "bill tube?" the bolt itself. I am guessing here but from the trailer and the pics I would bet this is along the lines of what all is here. Easily a full (and easily resettable walkaround act for table hopping) or a very clean act for close up or parlor that could easily kill 15 - 30 mins depending on presentation. Worth every penny to me. I own his "Bell Cups" and his "Workers Shell and Pea set" (the one with the mini hard hats in the lunch bucket). I have his coffee cup chop cup/ball set too and I look forward to not only this but his whiteboard disc monte too in the future.

But heck, even just for the props alone it seems to me like a steal for the price.
The money that actually ends up in Leo's bank account doesn't seem like it would be enough to make it worth his while for all the thought, creativity, and work that must have gone into this.

I know, it’s Totally Nuts, isn’t it? Smile

Leo is an idea machine, a hard worker and a selfmade man. And he always puts quality first! Leo breathes magic. He's unique and he's a great person. And probably most important for most of the people who don't know him: his tools are absolutely excellent! Leo's version of the Lippincott box (called 'The Vault') is one of the best props I own. Now eagerly waiting for 'Totally Nuts' to arrive. Smile Cheers, Luc.

Yes, I also really love my Vault, it's one of those things I'd have a real hard time parting with.

Can somebody that has got this tell me if it comes with the small pad that they write their names on. I guessing apart from the size there is nothing special about it but the paper seems quite thick maybe to help with the l••d.
Thanks in advance 😀

The add does say:"Leo’s Totally Nuts is a precision made set which comes with everything you need to perform the entire act." - It would be a shame if not.

I have since found out that it doesn’t. I know it’s a small point but it would have been nice if they had included a couple. It couldn’t have cost much.

Hi Daren I know it’s not a big deal and will probably end up using it with a bill switch anyway. I ordered today so looking forward to seeing this 😀

I have recently received this and this is a thing of beauty!! In my opinion this is Leo’s best release, it is a whole act in itself if you wanted to do all phases it would prob last 6-7 mins or so, or you could do just certain parts of it it is very modular! There is a full performance demo online so I won’t describe the effect as you can see for yourself. I will say this though I was worried this would be quite heavy but surprisingly this is very light! Get it while you can
