Would be nice to hear from all the Nexus users, that now have got one to see if it is all they expected.

There's one very negative review about the quality over at Penguin Magic:

No disrespect to Murphys but this is not the 1st thing they have cut corners on when it comes to quilty. They also had an amazing fire wallet by Theatre magic that I had to send back they were made so cheap the leather was peeling and cracking, back in the day it was made of good quality leather then they had it made it was shocking, in the end, they stopped doing them it was the best fire wallet ever IMO, Now the Nexus-like I said from day one, and many on here would not listen. Like I said there will be more much more, Nexus wants to be recalled back before it's far too late.

You can't really extrapolate much from a single review - there happens to be a 5 Star review as well so why ignore that?

I have yet to receive mine - a hold up in delivery at Vanishing Inc it seems - but I hope to have it by the end of the week and I'll give my honest opinion on it.

Great point David. I am excited to hear your thoughts on it! Thank you!

No this is different. When you go to Pro Mystic you will know what I am talking about. It is $$$$, maybe a little cheaper than mind buster but more compact.

I am going to look into this, if it's that's good I will get one of these. After all, money is for enjoying we cant take it with us when we are gone.

It's here Gaz https://labcomagic.com/product/mindbuster-pocket-pro/

Thinking about the Nexus and all the other peeks it may be best just to pay once and buy this what's money for if not to enjoy. Sold out in all colors wow.

Ok well I have something pretty much identical from labco, bought pretty much the range from the larger size down to pretty much this.
It’s great for pre show but sometimes it can let you down if the spectator hesitates with the pen and also relies on a specific pen.
Sorens customer service is top notch but I have found over the years relying on electronics is not no where near even 90% fail safe for peeks imho Gaz 😊

The pen problem is solved by Pro Mystic. It is cheaper than the mind buster and is much reliable. Smile

Nexus seems to have a lot of great features, and as such the wallet could be the only wallet to carry around. However - will wait until it's produced in real leather. At that price the wallet should last you a lifetime. BTW, that the card is difficult to get out of the zipper compartment is just a plus - it makes it all the more amazing that it could get in there Smile

Viper II is my preferred option for a peek wallet.
Parapad my preferred option for a peek device.
Otherwise a billet switch or a center-tear is my favorite methods for a peek - and they cost nothing but a piece of paper.

I just want to point that if you're looking for the BEST Card to envelope you have to search the one that makes Hernan Macagno: Is like the JOL, but more modern, and (I think) more thought of. Nothing is without thought.

If you're interested I might help you to find it (it's sold mostly in Spain)

Gather round children, I've finally received my Nexus from Vanishing Inc.

First impressions. It's as well made as any other wallet I've come across. I've had a few from a magic wallet dealer that couldn't stand to being used as an everyday carry and they were leather - I'd say the quality is certainly above that and if I hadn't known it wasn't leather I probably wouldn't have thought twice.

Someone mentioned the pockets being too tight - for what, exactly? I can easily get two or three bank cards in each pocket. Absolutely no issue.

The card to wallet function works like a dream. I've gimmicked one of my bank cards as suggested by Javier and it works like a charm. Smooth load. Without a slider card in, the chosen card comes out really easily. With a slider it's a little more tricky but a bit of practice and thought and there's absolutely no issue.

The zipper is fine - wax it and it's smooth as you need.

The peek is great - I love the subtle convincer of it supposedly being in the same pocket as your ID.

I've tried it with the clip on and I actually think I prefer it with the clip off and storing my blank cards in one of the pockets. However it's an option.

The ID card transformation is not something I've checked out because it's not something that interests me particularly so I can't comment.

The only question now is longevity and I'm happy to keep reporting as I carry this around and see what abuse it can take in a fat man's pocket!

Awesome feedback David. I have had this for 2 weeks so far and it's been working smooth as my EDC as well as performing magic. And yes, the quality is great as well as the CTW load.

Glad that someone here likes it apart from me. Smile

Yay!

I agree, Stealth is top-notch, and been around a long time. Do you know the cards from the Shadow wallet, fit the Stealth index very nicely? Also my Nexus, after a very short period has split at the top corner and stitching has all come away poor quality, and it does not fit a Bonsalope. As always great review. Smile

Sorry but an overwhelming number of bad reviews has me thinking this is a nice idea made like a cheap piece of c%#p disguised as “animal friendly”. This is one of the few wallets I’m passing on. Hope they rework it one day because I like it a lot in theory, but at this price (honestly I wouldn’t consider paying more then $30 as it stands if that) I’m taking a pass.

You're in luck. For just $22.50 you can pick up The Edge Wallet by TCC over at Penguin Magic right now.

In another magic forum, someone pointed out that it has a lot of features similar to the Nexus. It's also artificial leather, and comes with a peek, zippered pocket, card to wallet/envelope, and video tutorial (not 4 hours, mind you).

I don't have either the Nexus or The Edge, so I can't personally compare them. But for well under $30, perhaps that's a better option, at a more appropriate price point?
