Solari's Wallet Review

Simple, straightforward, and strong. That is Solari's wallet. Using any shuffled deck, with Solari's Wallet, you can easily predict any card that the spectator will cut to in an easy to execute way.

Here you have the spectator shuffle a deck of cards to their heart's content and cut it anywhere they wish. Show the wallet and that it contains only one face down card. Then mark the cut with the wallet and show the other half of the deck by fanning the cards to show that they are all different. The performer then lifts the wallet and reveals the cut to card. Then, the face-down card is removed from the wallet and it matches, exactly. If you are cutting with a red backed deck, you should have a blue backed card in the wallet.

The Solari Wallet is a faux-alligator skin bi fold leather "wallet" that is customized to allow you to predict any card. The wallet has some white stitching and metal clipped corners, but it does not look like an expensive wallet. When closed, the wallet measures 3 inches by 4 and a half inches. It cannot be used as a real wallet because it it really just a fancy card holder. When opened, there are two transparent plastic pockets inside the wallet.

This trick can be reset in a second, if you have a moment of privacy. Any card can be predicted, but you need to be prepared for it, which is easy, and if you are only just a kid hobbyist you are already prepared. I can't say more without revealing the secret to the trick.

The instructions consist of one page of typed text which is easy to follow. The other side of the page has a hand-drawn picture of how the gimmicked wallet works. The ad copy is accurate and the promotional video, performed by Bob Solari, is exactly what you get.

This is ultimately affordable and worthwhile.

Suggestions from the Reviewer

If you don't want to use a duplicate card for the prediction revelation, you could always write a note and insert it under the plastic.

Manufacturer's Description:

Deception SO SIMPLE it fools magicians!

Show a genuine leather wallet with one face-down prediction card inside. Set the wallet aside and introduce a deck of cards. A spectator shuffles the cards and cuts them into two piles. The wallet is placed on top of one pile to mark where the deck has been cut. The other pile is turned face-up to show all the cards to be different. The card that was cut to is now revealed for the first time. The wallet is then opened and a single card is removed.

Note:The effect is very easy to do and involves absolutely no sleight of hand. The wallet is made from genuine leather. Remember, the cards are shuffled and cut by the spectator. Playing cards NOT INCLUDED, please use your own Bicycle deck.
