This is a strong effect, and will find a home in my working repertoire if I can work out one issue....

These are indeed real leather wallets as the advert states but I did not initially believe this to be the case. they are made of pressed and processed leather and as such are very slick on the outside surface. To me the effect relies strongly on the ability to open each successive wallet easily and cleanly without fumbling around.

Out of the box they are very stiff and the leather requires some breaking in to make it soft which I have done. I have also used the baby powder on the flaps as suggested on the dvd but still have difficulty smoothly opening them. To me it is more an issue of how slippery the leather on the outside is. It feels almost oily and my fingertips cannot often find purchase on the leather.

All of the above being said the effect floors them when I can get the wallets open cleanly. They are easy to load and clever. I use them as a finale to a signed bent coin routine. If I can work out a way to make the leather less slippery against my fingers the nest of wallets will find a permanent home. If not.... bottom of the drawer.

try applying a small amount of octo Palm to your fingers.

You need to work the wallets over and over again to loosen up the stiff leather. I'd rather practice the trick a few hundred times with a lifetime quality product than have a cheap plastic prop that is immediately easy to work with but then falls apart in a few months. Great, great product.

I too had a little difficulty opening my new wallets, but came to a different conclusion. This only adds to the effect, from the audience's perspective. If you're struggling a bit to get the object out, how the hell did you get it in?
