NOT HANDS-FREE!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 26th, 2017
I am getting this product 1 * because it is not described accurately in the description. I already own the first tarantula. I purchased tarantula 2 because it was described as "hands-free". It works very well and is made of good material but they should not have to lie to you in order to sell their product. It is NOT hands-free. Tarantula to is exactly the same size and shape as the first tarantula. You hold it in your hand exactly the same way as you do with first tarantula.

Tarantula 1.5 Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 26th, 2017
I love the spider Pen Pro and liked the first tarantula.

This new one have some good updates but when you open the box it looks like the old one.
When you look closely you see indeed minor changes. Overall the gimmick seems to be as fragile as before and that is a big no for an update 7 years later ! Shame !!!!!! Shame !!!! Shame !!!!!!!
The DVD is not a DVD any more but a link to a video (that you cannot download). And it's a remake of the first one. Nearly the same effects and tips. Mesika even take the bonus PK touches effect from the Spider Pen Pro DVD and bring it to this new video. Shame !!! Shame !! Shame !!!

But...
The rechargeable battery is good (hopefully). A little afraid for the battery live after months, we will see....
The soul technology is nearly the same as the SPP (10s vs 30s) and about the same power (bill but not bicycle card for the magnetic bill effect).
The lock button is a great idea. It's like having a simple IT at the desire lenght in seconds.

To sum up, I'm quite disappointed even if I think I'll use this new gimmick a lot (because it's the only one of that kind on the market).

Hope that helps!

Exeeded my Expectations Report this review

Absolutely great. I've only played around with it for a day and I've come up with so much things you can do with this. You can perform the floating bill on the same day you receive your Tarantula 2 because it's just so easy yet so astonishing. But other tricks do require some practice. Although Yigal gives you a generous amount of IT and wax, I'd still recommend getting extra wax and Spider Thread along with this because in a week you'll need to buy it anyway. Here are the links for the products mentioned above:

Mesika Wax - http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/1976
Spider Thread - http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/1973

I'm very statisfied with the product. I have never done anything with IT reels until now. This is perfect for hobbyists and professionals. Highly recommend this.

Tarantula II, Great Improvements! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 25th, 2017
I'm a semi-pro magician, but I don't do too much IT work. That is, until now! Every once in a while I'll use the UFO Whirling Card, and then I once tried a BOSS ITR and quickly got rid of it. Then, I saw the trailer for Tarantula II!!! It looked amazing! I pre-ordered it back in April 2017 and I just received it yesterday! There is no DVD, but it comes with an online video link and code. I immediately watched it before I handled the gimmick. The video does a decent job explaining things, although I wish there was more content and better video angles as to see the handling of the gimmick during performance better. It's about 30 min long.

As far as the gimmick goes, it is very well made and I love that it has a rechargeable battery! The motor is completely silent and does not vibrate! If I hadn't been told, I would have never thought there was a motor in there!

Once I took it out of the box, I couldn't believe how easy it was to use! I think I might even buy a second one just to have! I will definitely be adding Tarantula II to my close-up gigs and I even have some ideas on how I could use it for stage performances! Tarantula 2.0 is a must if you're actively performing!

Definitely an improvement Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 10th, 2017
I have waited to write a review until I had a chance to use it for an extended period of time. This is definitely an improvement from the original Tarantula. The hands free method is tremendous. It allows you to end very very clean. I have no idea what some reviews are talking about when they mention there is no hands free method - there most definitely is. Many times I place the Tarantula in my pocket after setup and walk around ready to go and float a ring.

I didn't think it could get better... but it did!!! Report this review

I like many other magicians have attempted to stay distant from levetation materail and then I saw the spider pen and fell in love with it. For a long time it became my primary go to pocket filler before I would walk out the door. And then my mind got blown by discovering the Trantula 2. Things that I have applied to the spider pen just became so much easier to handle with its update control factors. And being able to be more direct with the fingertips. This is the new pocket filler and it takes up less space! Imagine that you can do things that magicians are aldready doing but better and you can pick it up faster then what's you would have many years ago. Plus with the USB charging capability there is no reason to be intimidated ever again. This is the best product of its kind, I know better to say that it can't get any better because I'm positive Yigal will keep working on it. But if there is any would recommend to any magician that's wants that "wow" moment this is it.

I received this today and am currently waiting for the unit to charge but I enjoyed watching the video instructions and will be spending the next few days playing with it.

Stunning! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 15th, 2017
I did buy it off a dealer near me( shipping is lower this way) and it arrived a few days ago.

So: 1 Star for an honest trailer, everything promised can be kept

1 Star for the strong thread, its really pwerful
2 Stars for the invisibility: Damn, this is incredible. I was IN BRIGHT SUNLIGHT with my fiance, she knew there was athread and could not see it. The Sun was hitting me from the front- nothing. If it is coming from your sides, someone could see it( well it is like this with any thread but since when is it possible to perform in direct sunlight?

1 Star for the improvements: Soul Tech is very useful, intuitive and the new design allows me to fit it to my fingers so I can hold my Hand like a Jedi while it is invisible to people behind me.

So it is five stars.

Sidenote: I wasn't really buying Mesikas products anymore since his lopps were worse with every "improvement" and his spiderpens were lower quality than a chinese 5 $ ripoff, breaking after getting them out of the box, basically. This was a last shot and it hit!
Also I own Fearson's Cobra and in my opinion it is the best reel in existence, no reel can do what it can do, but regarding something easy to handle i thing the tarantula2 reigns surpreme. It might have less adaptability or usage( timers, remote control, gravity switch, programmed activation and so on) but its way smaller and fits on one finger without needing a thumb tip. SO the Cobra will be used onstage by me and tarantula 2 while doing wlak arounds. I would definitely recommend it.
