Same situation here. I have been waiting eight weeks with NO replies.

Simply it is not acceptable way to run a business.

If he is away on tour, he should have set-up an automated response to say so.


I agree. Did he say up front that there could be an indefinite delay in filling orders? If not, touring is no excuse. If he said up front that there could be a long delay, that's another thing.

Just as an observation, as I've never had any dealings with Mark Strivings, but I do know a lot about customer service. If you are selling, performer or not, personal 'challenges' or not, the customer always comes first, always, in the magic fraternity as in retail.


One of the biggest fallacy in the perception of market economy. The company always comes first! No exceptions, none, full stop. But most companies cannot succeed with poor customer service, hence they are trying to keep the customers happy.

With the SUC 2 in the pockets to hold business cards, can a couple of cards (credit/drivers license) or money be placed in one or both the compartments? And will the peek still be accessible?

Thanks.

Yes, Dave, the peek is still available if you decide to put your credit cards in the pockets.

BTW, the peek is the least deceptive use of the wallet's capabilities.

PM me for details and availability.

Getting back to he original question... for what it's worth, I much prefer the original SUC to the SUC II. It's thinner, thus simpler, more elegant, and less suspicious looking. To my mind, it's the ideal business card case for mentalists. I suspect Mark created SUC II for magicians who want to carry around packet tricks! Smile

I've got the SUC II, and I think it's great! I haven't seen the SUC I, so I can't compare it. The "II" doesn't look suspicious to me and leaves me more room either to carry more things or to do additional effects.

For example, I can write a prediction, stick it in the wallet, and then place it on the table (or in the spectator's hand). After the spectator reveals his/her free choice, I can take the correct prediction out of the SUC. Pretty amazing!

Banachek uses it for an effect on his psi series CD set. This could be done with the SUC I as well, but it seems that it's easier with the SUC II because of the extra pocket.

As Samuel said "the peek is the least deceptive of the wallets capabilities".

For new owners:all I can say is think out of the box.

Some very bizarre routines can be done with the SUC.

Sorry Doug, you are wrong, and believe me when I say that I am in a position to know. It was developed for Mentalists.

A little off topic but I think useful for prospective buyers:

In my leather credit card holder at the moment I have a drivers license, 2 credit cards and a slit for a couple of bank notes.

Would the SUC II (just to confirm) be able to hold the above and thus replace my holder?

Note: I don't hold change in my wallet/credit card holder.

Thanks

The SUC 2 has 4 slits in it.2 on each side.It would hold the cards,but when you fold up bank notes to put into a slit it may look over stuffed.
unless it was just 1 or 2 bills max.

Perhaps Lee missed the Smile in my posting.

Mark is a friend and colleague; I know full well the history of the SUC. And there's a good reason why he continues to manufacture and sell the original version, despite having created the SUC II.
