Pro Carrier Deluxe Review

Joshua Jay’s Pro Carrier Deluxe is a very practical way to store playing cards, business cards, coins and even rubberbands when you’re at walkaround gigs. You’ve just got to decide how you want to wear it and what to put into it!

The Pro Carrier Deluxe has clip that can latch onto your belt, it’s a very sturdy clip that won’t easily bend or break, but it’s not impossible to knock off with force so please be aware if you’re in a tight spot rubbing shoulders and hips as you move through a crowd.

Personally, I prefer not to wear it on my belt as it’s a bit too bulky for my tastes if you put two belts in it. It would cause a large bulge that just doesn’t look flattering. I would’ve preferred it to be as slim as possible, carrying a deck and maybe some business/gaff cards in the flap slot, but that’s my personal preference. How I do use it as to carry decks, cards and coins in my bag, so when I arrive, it’s easier to load my pockets by taking the props out of the case and putting them onto my person, which does sound backwards given the item but I saw Josh Jay do this when he came to lecture, so I’ve got two Pro Carrier Deluxes which hold different sets of tricks that I can swap in and out based on the gig.

When I did wear it during gigs, I put it on along my back so any bulge would be behind me and not to the sides so when people look at me, I’m still symmetrical in dress. I carried a one trick deck so that if a group wanted to see one more trick, or I wanted to show something special, I’d whip the deck out and blow their minds. I also carried duplicate/gaff cards as a refill for my regular deck so after I use the card up, I can reach back and grab another one.

The Carrier is very well made and will last a long time. The magnetic flap is much better than the original versions Velcro. There aren’t too many other options out in the market, and any that have come out don’t seem to last long but the Pro Carrier Deluxe continues to have runs made every once in a while, so if you’re looking for one, keep your eyes on for them!

I took a 1.5 off my rating as I don't use it as it's designed, which is worn on myself at gigs, but it's a product I like and find uses for in other ways.

Manufacturer's Description:

Way back in 2000, a very young Joshua Jay designed and released the Pro Carrier. It was the first of its kind, in a way: a quality leather case that held a pack of cards, coins, packet tricks, extra cards or items, and displayed your business card. It was and is a wildly popular item among working professionals.

After 16 years, the Pro Carrier is getting its first major update. Fans and users of the Pro Carrier will be delighted with the design improvements. If you've never used the Pro Carrier, this item has the capability to transform your magic! This is not hyperbole. The Pro Carrier is designed to be carried with you at all times, and magicians who integrate the Pro Carrier into their life will ALWAYS have a forty-minute close-up show within arm's reach. Never again kick yourself for not carrying duplicate cards. No more regrets about that shell you wish you had, or the double-facer you forgot to bring. All your signature tricks in one place, always by your side.

Features:

Holds two decks, four half dollars, 4 packet tricks, and business cards
Made of high quality leather
Includes clip for easy attachment to belt or briefcase
Fits in your pocket or stands upright on a table

Design improvements include:

Magnetic flap: this used to be velcro
Iron clamp: so you can flip it to a case or your belt; this used to be looped
Holds TWO decks: this is the biggest design improvement. Joshua decided that having a second deck would be a real asset, whether it be a memorized pack, Phantom Deck, or any other blockbuster ending. Now you can carry BOTH decks with you at all times
