Here's the down low. I've gone through a couple of different IET (invisible elastic thread) such as
Silk Worm Thread (CLEAR) and Infinity Thread V3 - and I have to say of all the kinds of IET that I
have tried, PET 2.0 is the best in many areas:
-It's strong (Strong enough to lift a metal
fork or glasses without breaking)
-It's VERY invisible. Not shiny like other threads. More of a
flat black which is really nice.
-You get a TON of it.
-It's great for making loops with.
You can keep a loop made out of PET 2.0 on your wrist the entire day while using throughout the day
- and as long as you yourself don't break it by lifting something too heavy for it; the loop will be
able to be used for many days without even removing the loop.
Enough about the tread, let's
get on to the Million Dollar Knot. The Million Dollar Knot is basically a method for tying your own
loops instead of buying them pre-made. By making your own loops you can save a ton of money because
pre-made loops are pretty expensive. The method taught in the ID (Instant Download) is kind of
confusing and hard to follow, especially if it's your first time working with IET. You're gonna have
to watch the video a couple of times to get it down.
But don't despair! If you are not
satisfied with the method taught in the ID, in the Penguins Only forum, Penguin Member - CaptainQ
has posted a sticky containing a much simpler method which I and many other members have found to be
much easier than the one supplied by Penguin. It's fast, easy, and makes good strong loops!
The effects taught in the ID are really cool! They are:
-Haunted Deck: A really simple
haunted pack which freaks the daylights out of people! Uses a normal pack of cards.
Fork: Make a fork crawl on the floor by using your PK powers! Really cool and simple.
Glass: A rising card effect which happens in a cup and you can be a foot away when it happens! Very
cool and easy.
-Fork From Glass: Hand your spectator a cup with a fork in it. The fork slowly
rises out of the cup and falls onto the floor. It all happens in their hands, and you can be like a
foot away when it happens! Really cool and totally examinable.
-The Pen: Make a pen fall off the
table. Not so cool, but not too bad either.
Overall, I highly recommend this product to
anyone looking to get into loops. The thread is really good quality and even if you don't like the
method taught in the ID, you always have a second choice in the PO Forums. My only complaint other
than the method, is that you have to be REALLY careful with the thread because it's very easy to
loose the end of the thread on the spool if you're not careful. But this is true with all other IET
on spools. You just have to be careful when taking thread off the spool, that's all.
gave 4 Stars because I wasn't so fond of the method taught in the ID, but other than that - I highly
recommend this product!
