M Pitcher is correct. It was Becker and Earle who first pioneered the concept of a flip section for a peek. I owned the original Gravity Wallet and then later the Complete Peek Wallet, and was actually surprised that B & E were not credited when the TCPW was released. BTW- I've also viewed the instructions for the Nexus Wallet and can honestly say that the Complete Peek and Gravity closely resemble each other more in terms of method and mechanics than either of them to the Nexus.

I have a series of totally non plastic or leather wallets coming out.

Hello Everyone,

I received the Nexus wallet today and I am pleased with it. Still playing around with it, but some initial thoughts on it:

- Great Peek [Very Deceptive]
- The CTW handling is great
- Also, the quality of the teaching by Javier is superb.

I will be giving it a spin for some street magic this weekend.

No. No.

For the last 50 years we've heard the 5-, 10- and 15- years until we die unless we 'do something' predictions, yet none have come true and the global warmers are still buying 'soon to be under water' ocean front property.

The only 'evidence' for this claptrap was the Euro global warmer getting caught on a hot mike years ago saying global warming was no more than a created issue used to make $$$.

Yup Chessman. First it was global
Cooling then warming then “change” and now we have about 8 years left until death according to scholars like AOC... I think I’ll invest in oil and continue to enjoy my barbaric life Smile
Now, what was the topic of this thread again? Oh yeah..the demand for plastics in magic props. I’m sure it’s a thing and the industry will collapse if we don’t get woke quick!
Leather here please and thank you.

On topic for real though..
I like this p&&k but not the overall wallet personally. I wish my Viper had the same orientation honestly since it’s easier not seeing a reversed image. But even then it’s not a problem by changing the handling a tad.

agree. It's all simply a money trap. a way to tax you for every move you make. all the big mouth posers for climate change fly around in private jets emitting more whatever they say is poison than any of us does in a lifetime.

A friend of mine showed me his Nexus wallet up close. After playing with it my thoughts are that I'm really glad I didn't buy it. I already have better peek wallets - The Alias wallet is a better peek because there is no hand motion. They slide the card into it and you already got the peek. The Viper wallet is also far superior with its versatility. For those who have not seen my Viperous peek (folded card with the Viper wallet) then send me a PM.

Part of the problem is the ridiculous hyperbole that accompanies every release these days. From the bombastic teaser/trailer videos to the "reviewers" constantly squealing about being "blown away" etc. Every average new prop or minor twist on a principle is treated as if it is the Second Coming.

He's not the worst offender but Craig Petty calling this "the best wallet I've ever seen" is the sort of thing that is now happening far too often. I simply don't believe him. He and the other Magic reviewers have become like hosts on the Shopping Channel. We know they don't really believe the stuff they are saying but their livelihoods/egos depend on getting sales, hits, views, so everything has to be hyped up or smashed down to the max. Nothing can just be average, or not bad, or quite good in some areas but lacking in others. No; things have to be "the best ever" or "this sucks!".

Oh for the days when properly qualified people without a financial or "you scratch my back" interest reviewed objectively in the Magic periodicals.

Martin, they are not "reviewers", but "Magic Promoters". There is a huge difference. When a new magic product comes out, we often experience the same thing as investors on the stock market - FOMO (Fear of Missing Out).

Must disagree with you guys. Craig’s channel.is a fantastic resource to the ‘magic community’. He’s honest and open and doesn’t suffer fools gladly.Check out the love and appreciation through all the feedback and comments he receives.However, as Dave implies over at Magic Orthodoxy, don’t take his word for it,...check out everybody else’s reviews, then you can make an informed decision.
As for the Nexus,...I’m a wallet geek and must have 20 of them. It’s by far the best peek (with the most innocent presentation) I’ve used. It’s pricey, not leather, but with all the add ons - the ‘best wallet I’ve ever seen”. But that’s only my opinion!

The moment I saw this thread and the heading 'This is the best wallet I have ever seen' I immediately switched off. I have seen such remarks so many times and, no doubt when the next gimmicked wallet comes out, will do so again.

In making my purchasing decisions I now look beyond the hype and take particular note of the views of those who have actually bought the item and whose views and opinion I trust.

UnbiasedMagicReviews folded business card peek on The Viper is truly outstanding, it wasn’t in the tutorial and what he has come up with is something I don’t believe any other peek wallet can do Gaz 😊 ps I agree with Martin, everything is blown out of proportion in marketing these days there is literally no need to reinvent the wheel imo

On the discussing the f**p method on former wallets, and who did what first and all the usual bla bla...:

In the instruction video for The Nexus Wallet, at 3:51:55 you can hear Javier say (being some kind of credit??? or...:
"...and if you like the method the way The Nexus Wallet peek functions, check out Anthomy Miller's Complete Wallet and Becker and Earl's Gravity Wallet!"

I personally like this wallet peek method better than all the others mentioned in this thread! Yes I have owned most of them and/or at least tried them out!
Great wallet, but it is only MY opinion! Smile

Spectators don’t care what peek you use, many many work flawlessly and we all know that if we are being honest.
Buy them all perform them well and it’s purely down to your own personal preference the spectators don’t give a dam as they don’t know or shouldn’t know anyway.
So so many achieve that goal imho Gaz 😊

Ok so I just got my wallet and as I really love the features. Haven't finished watching all the instructions, but both the peek and ctw features are great. Haven't gotten to the ID transpo part yet so I don't fully understand that part just yet. But the peek and ctw are the main things I bought this for, and am happy with both features.

BUT.. there is one big issue that I'm hoping is just me and noone else has had this problem. But I removed the money clip and went to reverse it, and it's nearly impossible to reinsert it.

Tried prying the clip open a bit so it goes in easier which didn't help. Something is snagging it and I can't tell what it is. I tried to finesse it, being as careful as possible, didn't apply much force and now the opening started to rip.

This is incredibly frustrating. Brand new wallet ripping already.. Anyway like I said I'm hoping it's just mine, and that they aren't all like this. I wouldn't expect that to be the case or else there would be complaints everywhere. But anyone else having this problem as well?

I'm hoping I can get this replaced and the next one is better. Aside from this issue I really do like everything about the wallet and want to use and perform with it.

Hey Jamo, you are not alone. I posted about it earlier, but I fear this may be a potential flaw in the design, as the one I have very much has the possibility to do that. When I went to reverse it, I noticed that the clip was getting caught on a piece of fabric that was sewn into the inside of where that clip is going. It could also get caught on a card if you have one in there, as that is part of a pocket. And if you put some pressure when putting it in, that opening could rip because of the thinner material. Anyway, the solution is to either place your finger in the curve of the clip (the U end) to open it more as you put it in, so it does not catch, or bend it open more so it does not catch. Thank you

Hey Luke thanks for the advice. But man that is disappointing that it's a flaw in the design. That part really should be reinforced. Fortunately mine isn't too badly ripped but I know it won't take much for it to rip further. Wish I had known about this beforehand Smile
