The Blurb

Lynx Magic brings you Lynx Wallet, an essential utility prop that takes the classic “named card to envelope” to a whole new level, with the working professional magician in mind.

Inspired by the effect “Bang On” created by Marc Oberon, Gonçalo Gil and João Miranda created Lynx Wallet. Is the only device that allows the magician to remove any freely named card from a single envelope, both from the inside of one wallet, in the most clean conditions.

Imagine showing a wallet containing one envelope with only one playing card inside. Next, the magician can hand the wallet for a spectator to examine and hold until the end. Then an audience member is asked to name any card (no force) and instantly the magician removes the envelope from the wallet, showing that the prediction matches the freely named card.

This amazing prop can be combined with very different routines, both in Close Up or Stage performances.

Lynx Wallet is a premium product that allows you to:
Predict any playing card.
Have any named card to wallet effect with only one wallet involved.
Perform the routine with the wallet in full view since the beginning.
Let you spectators examine both the envelope and the wallet.
Find the spectators card without using any elimination process or magician choice.
Use the wallet for everyday use.
Instant reset.
Predict any card without stooges or pre-show work.
Have a killer magic effect, very easy to perform.

Jheff's Guide

WHAT IT IS:
Gimmick with routine(s) included

HOW ACCURATE OR COMPLETE THE BLURB IS:
It’s mostly accurate.  The line that says that you can “Let you spectators examine both the envelope and the wallet” is just plain wrong though.  The envelope can be examined, but the wallet?  They can look at it quite closely while the performer is holding it, but they cannot hold themselves and examine it.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED THAT YOU NEED OR NEED TO KNOW:
For the effect, which, as you’ll see below, I don’t recommend, there is a one-time set-up.

SUITABLE VENUES:
Close-up, Walkaround

JHEFF’S JUDGMENT:
A cross between Kenton’s KOLOSSAL KILLER and Marc Oberon’s BANG-ON, the effect has some issues which bother me: the envelopes, design of the cards, etc.  However, the Shogun style wallet is very well-made and has a whopping twenty-four pockets, which leads me to highly recommend this product – for the wallet, of course, if you’re looking for a really good hip-style indexing wallet.
