Tarantula 1.5 Report this review

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!

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 2 Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 29th, 2017
I am having to fix this device and his over simplistic video does not come close in fixing this reel.

1. Trying to locate the end of the thread is problematic and
2. How to the thread the spool through the slots is not clear at all from his video

As it stands, I have his device sitting on my desk ( not working) and I am upset over this.

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!

Tarantula 2 Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 27th, 2017
I really like the product, and it can do everything like in the demo video. I especially like the hands free method. Making a ring float and moving around with my hands completely free? Amazing! Just please don't forget to unwind the thread (like I did) after you preform hovering ring or lifesaver. Your thread will break like crazy if you spin the ring at the same direction all the time and don't unwind the thread.
I had some issues when the thread got broken and I couldn't find the beginnning. Yigal teaches you how to deal with that problem but still, it makes you loose thread.
If you are a beginner at ITR I highly recommend to get some extra ITR, because I spent mine when the thread broke about 8 times.
I think that tarantula should include at least 2 extra spools with it. But the thread should not break so much when you get more comfortable with it.

Tarantula 2 is awesome!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 16th, 2017
The release took a while but the wait was worth it!! I really liked Tarantula 2 and it is everything I was expecting. There isn't a DVD but a link to see the explanations. The effects are well explained by Yigal and I think that they are clear enough for those who have some experience working with IT. The IT is surprisingly thin and strong and difficult to see, of course in the good conditions (like every IT).
The battery duration is good, and a charging cable is included in the box. I don't know if it's normal but my battery moves a little bit, like if it wasn't glued enough but well thats not a big issue but I though relevant to mention.
If the IT breaks is really easy to put it back.
Talking about the "hands free" is doable but there is a small issue that I'll explained bellow.

So why 4 stars? Well there are a few factors:
- The motor is fast enough but not that strong, you can lift a bill but not a bicycle card.
- You canot download the tutorial from Yigal's website
- These two first factors are important but "I can live with that" I put 4 stars essentially because of the "lock button". I don't know if I am the only one to have some problems whit it. In my opinion, the "lock button" is not actually a "lock button" since you have to keep pressing with the finger all the time to lock the IT, giving the hand an unnatural look, since you need a lot of strength to do it!! So I use other ways to lock the IT with my fingers to prevent that.
That of course is a problem for the hands free part because once you are in your set up and you put the device in (secret part) as explained "there is not a hand there to lock the IT" so the object must be heavy enough to prevent the IT to return to the device. So there is a small problem while levitating light objects with the hands free configuration.

Besides this last point, Tarantula 2 is perfect, is a practical device to work with IT, I loved it and I think that is absolutely worth it.

I totally recommend this product to those who have some experience and love working with IT. It is practical as well for beginners but i recommend first to get used to classic IT work to avoid breaking the IT with the Tarantula 2 and buying a lot of spools :P

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.
