Hello I am thinking about getting a poachers pouch (theambitiouscard.com) it is $149 US... is it worth it? ( I don't make a large amount of money)
I see a lot of good reviews about Franks stuff and it looks like it will suit my needs well, My main considerations are

1. will it fit everything I need?
2. how long will it last?
3. how easy is it to use?
4. how well does the drawstring work and would it be worth it to pay the extra $10 (US) for the flap?
Please respond. (especially Paddy or anyone who has done business with Frank before)

Cirkus :)

Although I helped with some of the design and dimensions of this particular pouch, I've found it to be less than useful. This was the "first draft" of Frank's pouches and they've improved since then.

Of course it depends on what you want to do with it. It does not work as well for Cups and Balls as I expected. For a storage pouch, it works great. It was designed to be able to wear two side by side, and although I have two of them, I've never personally used them that way.

It turns out the Cellini or the lighter weight parlor pouch are the better choice.

Thank you for the reply. I have thought about the street pouch also (it looks almost exactly like the Cellini pouch but is $100 cheaper) but it did not have a drawstring, does the parlor pouch have a drawstring or flap? should I just get the buskers bag?
I also want to know if ether of these books is worth it...
1. "To Lure With Spectacle" by Jimmy talksalot.
2. Krowd keeping by Gazzo.

You'll have to ask Frank about those details. I only directly know about the Poacher's and Cellini pouches.

I have the street pouch, its great in my opinion, holds a large softball and 6 tennis balls with room to spare, also there are extra pockets for cards or a jumbo coin, on the side you can place a tt or a wand.

To wear it you simple tie it around your back.

The Jimmy pouch you need to wear on a belt.
