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.

Major Improvements but there are cons. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2019
Tarantula 1:
1.On/ Off Switch
2.Button below battery
3.Cheaply built
4.Battery strength lowers as battery drains
5. Hard to find watch batteries
6. Can not be used like the spider pen pro
7. Hands are required

Tarantula 2:
1.Soul Technology
2."Button"/stopping mechanism above spool
3.Much more durable and fits better
4.Constant Strength from the 1st to the
last second until battery drains
5.Rechargeable
6.Can be used like the spider pen pro
when put in shirt pocket i discovered
this by myself. This is not taught in
the dvd so if you know how the spider
pen pro works use the T2 to ur advantage
7.Optional Hands Free ( not well taught in the dvd) (scroll down)


DVD:
The video is nice but I feel like Yigal rushed through the video and skipping some important steps, luckily for me I owned tarantula 1 so I already knew how to set things up but for people that never owned the 1st one they will get annoyed and frustrated. Yigal does not go over the moving pen in tarantula 2 like he did in tarantula 1. He does go over one way to find the end of the IT if it gets lost but it requires you to waste product.

Reccomendations:
1. I would reccomend NOT to lock the IT onto the bottom of the spool because there is a 10 second timer for the soul technology. If the the IT is pulled all the way out and the timer shuts off you will not be able tl reactivate the pull because it can not be pulled out any longer and you will need to manuallly respool what is already out (I learned the hard way). Instead just use the locking mechanism/ button that i mentioned earlier which replaced the on/ off switch from tarantula1.

2. If the IT breaks and is sucked in just take out the spool and blow and twist it until the IT pops out ( try at different angles)

3. For the hands free method hook it up to the object then drop the tarantula2 in pocket. Hook the IT that is protruding from ur pocket onto your hand and continue as if the tarantula is still in your hand (works better for the mint due to it being light weight). You will still be able to move the object vertical and horizontally. I explained this because Yigal barely goes over the method.

4. For the ring do not break anything, just hold onto the spectators hand after it lands in the spectators finger so that she doesn't pull away, proceed to show her hand to the crowd, pull the ring off the finger and detach goo.

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 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

Good Device Report this review

The design and quality of the device are good but it does make a noticeable noise and is not very comfortable.

Cheap construction, unwieldy, awkward Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 1st, 2021
I see all the raving reviews but I have issues. So, I want to address something. The reason this thing doesn't fit on the finger is that the motor actually takes up all the space leaving very little for the finger. The finger can't fit so to hang onto the gimmick your hand must remain in a semi awkward position and I find it uncomfortable. Also, because of the cheap construction the plastic edges around where the thread comes out are hard and can be sharp enough to break thread. I remedied this with some scotch tape to give a smoother edge for the thread to glide across. I get much more out of the Spider Pen Pro. Same kinds of effects, less hassle. With the pen there's no need to bring it in and out of play. Nothing to ditch.

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.

Tarantula 2 Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 23rd, 2018
The effect is truly extraordinary. I love the fact that I can pull objects on the table at any restaurant. The only missing side is, the plastic quality of the product. I think the quality of plastic isn't enough for a $ 75 product. The edges of the gimmick are very rough. So it can sometimes be difficult to work with IT.
I would prefer to use a higher quality plastic.
I liked it anyway...

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.

I didn't think it could get better... but it did!!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 29th, 2017
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.
