Real Secrets: New Products Listed

Postby Evan Shuster » November 21st, 2012, 8:57 pm

Calling all members:
The Real Secrets team has just added six new items to their products page, including one very limited item (all the more limited, due to my recent purchase :) ).

Members should log in to check it out.

It should be pointed out that all the new products except one are refills for earlier tricks in the series. The one new item is limited to 12 pieces (well, perhaps less by now): Weber's Wallet, which I displayed in a "More Genii Speaks" video some months ago. So get your butt over there if you're a member and you want one.

When I still had access to their site I found it amusing that the refills cost more than the original item. I know; I am a cynic. Sorry.

The wallet sounds cool.

None of the refills cost more than the monthly prorated cost of the subscription.

The first refills offered cost $20. If that is no longer the case, then fine.

Richard

Do you remember which month your video column showed Weber's Wallet.

I cannot find any information on this item. Even the Real Secrets website lists it with no description. Weird... $160 to find out what it is?

They've kept exactly what it does really quiet. I cannot say what it does (and I don't on the Genii Speaks video--I just hold it up and blabber for a moment or two).

I think it's certainly worth the money. Weber does an absolute miracle trick with it (and it will do lots of other stuff as well). It comes with 3 routines.

But, what it is NOT, is a card to wallet. It doesn't do that trick.

Thank you Richard.

Based on your recommendation, I feel more confortable taking the plunge (I'm a sucker for this type of marketing).

You "cannot say what it does". Is this because it is meant to be a kept a secret just like all of the Real Secrets items?

I assume that you now have 2 Weber Wallets? The one you showed on your video column and the one you just ordered?

You mention that "Weber does an absolute miracle trick with it". Is that routine included as one of the 3 routine?

Thank you.

No, I only have one, which I bought at Magic-Con at some point.

I can't say what it does because I can't say what it does.

Yes, the great trick is included among the three routines.

IMHO, it's really not much of a risk to purchase the wallet.

One, it's received strong recommendations of people I trust.

Two, the secondary market for Weber's stuff is so robust, you'd have no trouble selling it off.

Hopefully, those who purchase the wallet will protect their investment and keep it tight.

You will not be sorry for buying this. However, you might be, if you don't.

It does good tricks, and like anything Weber has put it, it's also a good investment.

Received my Weber's Wallet the other day. Everyone is right. You will not be sorry for buying it. My surprise came when Real Secrets threw in two additional gifts. These guys (gals?) are a class act.

Okay, now I'm curious... I received my wallet, and couldn't be happier, but what are the gifts you are referring to?

I don't think they're allowed to say what the gifts are on a public forum. Discuss privately via pm and email.

Is there a performance-only of Weber's Wallet online?

I don't think so. Most people seem pretty happy with it, so it's just a leap of faith.

I received mine today and I am happy I took the chance on it, thanks to Richard's stamp of approval. One of the routines appears to be killer and direct. I can't wait to try it out.

I was pleasantly surprised that they included more than was promised.

Real Secrets is hit and miss but overall its been a lot of fun.
