I REALLY like the deck in tha bag routine (linked above), it completely solves the two pocket issue. That is the way I plan on using this. I have cheetah, btw, and it is awesome!

Cheetah it's designed to carry regular Bicycle cards. You can use it with thin cards, but the difference in thickness it's barely noticeable.

Regardless Cheetah it's really thin. In the next routine, you can appreciate it, you can fit Cheetah and a Mullica Wallet in a tight jeans pocket.

Here is the full performance of "Wallet Nightmare":

I've never used an index before, but I bought this and REALLY like it. It's very well made, very easy to use, can be used in separate pockets or both in the same pocket and I expect it to last a long time. I have no idea about Lloyd's yet to be released product or one by Don Wand that was being talked about a while back, but I can't see how you could improve on this!!

Excuse my ignorance, but is Cheetah different from Indexpress 2.0?

Indexpress 2.0 is an index for billets. Basically it's a Q5 for billets made in a high quality material.

Cheetah has an entirely different and new design and it's an index for playing cards.

Received Cheetah today. It's brilliant. Very cleverly made. After 15 mins practice I can get to most cards within a couple of seconds.

I've changed the position of some of the cards so that the order makes intuitive sense to me.

Highly recommended

Approximately September but please use the Dex thread for all Dex discussion as I don't want to distract from Cheetah.

No? I had the impression that you were doing just that.


Agree, it’s terrible business behavior. Smile

Apart from that I would like to exchange some thoughts.
Every once in a while creators and the industry are dashing on one specific topic in magic all at the same time.
Not really good for them but good for us because we can chose the best and most fitting one.

As far as I remember we have already 5 (!) Index systems this year, some of which just got announced and others already released.

Switch One (it’s more than that but you get a good one with it)
Indexed by Mirrah Miracoulous
Indexpress by Vernet (reminded me of T.I.‘s)
Chetah by Berman Dabat and Michel
Dex by Lloyd Barnes and Javier Fuenmayor (announced)
A Pocket Index (unnamed) by Don Wand (meanwhile he chose not to publish it)
.. pretty sure I forgot a few more this year..

I ordered this one and admit my addiction for indexes.
This year is definitely the year of the Index.

Beside optimizations regarding design, durability and quick access: the best and fastest index is the one you are using regularly!

We want to share another routine that you can perform with Cheetah. This routine is ideal for parlor!

Here's the full performance:

Seems like you could combine that with that squishable wallet murphys was selling a few months back and do a longer pickpocket themed routine.

I ordered this, excited by the speed. Haven't received it yet, but is there a dedicated fb group by chance?

There is no dedicated Facebook group.

With Cheetah, we include 2 indexes for 26 cards each and a video download with 4 professional routines (70 minutes duration).

How does this compare to the one pocket INDEXED by Saturn Magic?

With "indexed" you have to riffle the cards.
Here you "take" the named card.
I find them both evenly fast.
With Cheetah the chances of making a mistake, are lesser I think.
On the other side, "indexed" is compacter. (Cheetah are two indexes).
I own "indexed", but I think I will use Cheetah.
To be sure that you have te right card is primordial for me.

Thanks for your thoughts. I’ve been too lazy to put the cards back in indexed after I accidentally pulled them out when I got it…lol…Cheetah sounds cool. Btw with something like Cheetah, could you have other objects in your pocket or does pocket management mean you have to clear it for the system?

I have to say that the demo video is much more impressive than Lloyd’s…less fumbling, faster response.
