Horrible Dispenser, Good Thread Report this review

Like I said, Horrible Dispenser, Good Thread. The dispenser is worse than dollar store quality, it is totally useless. On the bright side, the elastic is wound around a long, cylindrical spool, which is miles ahead of the "legacy thread" bobbin! Bang a nail into a board, pull out the cylinder, drop it on the nail, and you have a dandy dispenser, even when the elastic breaks (inevitable, eh).
It does the job, but not as well as PET2.0 Report this review

For making my own Loops, this stuff can't compare to the strength, stretch and invisibility of PET2.0.
Don't get me wrong, this is good stuff, but you're on the right site to buy better so I feel I should steer you in the direction of a better product.
Great Product! Report this review

I had purchased this spool of thread for the specific goal of performing in front of 600 people at my school talent show. The performance went awesome, and I used this thread to replicate the "ghost touch" hypnosis effect seen many times by today's magicians. Here are the pros and cons of the Mesika Elastics
Pros: Durable and VERY elastic. These things are exceptionally stretchy. If you are in the right environment, they are also invisible.
Cons: Exceedingly difficult to prepare. If you are wearing light clothes or have glaring lights in the environment, the thread can be detected. Out of the 600 people that saw the trick, I think two or three suspected the method. Also, if the mere idea of invisible thread is implanted in the spectators mind, they will immediately recognize the character of the motion of the object you are manipulating and the trick will be foiled.
How to remedy the Cons:
Watch a youtube tutorial on how to make a loop before you even open your package.
You are the performer! Manipulate your stage, change your clothes, position the spectators! It wont be easy or go perfectly but if you control your environment you will perform better.
And think creatively. If you make a dollar bill move by jerking your hand back, every non-monkey spectator will deduce there is some sort of string attached to your hand!
GREAT FOR MAKING LOOPS Report this review

Great for making loops. Get yourself 2 of them, with the Million Dollar Knot and Loops Volume 1&2.............. OMG best combination ever. Treat yourself and save money.

I think the product is great however it should come with instructions on tying the knot. Very difficult to work with. By the time you experiment and get it worked out you waste a fair amount of thread. Still struggeling to get it. Next time I am just buying the loops. Also can't get on the discussion forum for this product even though I am signed in. Some support would be good.

This stuff can be hard to work with, but worth the work... get Million Dollar Knot as well and you will have the best thread with a great knot for loops. Better way to go than always buying loops.

Mesika is selling his thread for loops disguised as a dental floss dispenser?! Awesome! I found the knot for the loops on youtube and was able to get more loops for less money. So if you are in to loops buy this and save money!
excellent Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 28th, 2014
I received my product very quickly and immediately tried tying a few loops. They came out perfect the thread is quite strong and has a good stretch to it. Have already used it in a few of tricks and people respond very well. As long as you keep it taut it is very difficult to see even when people are standing all around you. Very Satisfied. Thank You.
