|I'm a big fan of Jeff Kaylor. I was really flipped out when his TKO hit the market a couple of years ago.
With this new product, he has raised the bar once again.
But let me start with the two things I didn't like about the product. First, the title printed on the packaging is grammatically incorrect. It should be Spectator's (singular possessive) not Spectators. Michael Ammar, of all people, should have caught this.
Second, I don't think the title does it justice. I'm guessing this was a marketing choice and probably very effective for that purpose. But the card-to-wallet effect, while great, is just the tip of the iceberg.
Like TKO, this is really a utility prop — and a very clever one. Basically it's a card holdout that can be used while wearing an short-sleeved, un-tucked, button-down shirt. You can ditch and steal quite a large stack of cards. For that matter, it doesn't even need to be used for playing cards. Hell, this could be quite the tool for the creative mentalist.
The manufacturing is top-notch, as is the material on the DVD.
And if you already have TKO, I would still suggest getting this one. They're different enough that you'll want to have both on hand.
