Our journey begins with one of the newest, most fascinating genres in all of magic—the incredible invisible elastic thread created by DuPont and patented in 1959. You’ll discover what it is, where to find it, and the amazing things you can do with it, including Finn Jon’s killer application—the invisible elastic loops. You’ll create truly astonishing animations and levitations almost anytime, anyplace using this and other applications featured on this video for the first time.

Following this we look at the close-up animating ability of visible, but hidden threads. This section contains the most practical, commercial method for performing Stefan Schutzer’s Self-Folding Bill ever revealed.

Then after learning the best of the classic magic for the stand-up performer using the Traditional Reel, including an amazing, visual penetration of the mike stand, James George joins Michael for an overview of one of the most compelling inventions of the last 50 years—The Invisible Thread Reel. You’ll see a complete comparison of the wide range of I.T.R. gimmicks, featuring full screen close-ups of exactly how to work with and reload this powerful gimmick.

I like this volume the best. Mainly because it goes into loops, but also because it talks about the wallet hook-up, which i think is genius. Many of the classic IT tricks are explained on this DVD. If you only buy one of the DVDs from this series then make it this one. However you really should own them all. This set is like an IT encyclopedia. Like Ammar's Easy to master Card miracles, and money miracles, This set takes you through all the nuances of IT work. Working with IT can be extremely frusterating and intimidating. Ammar does a brilliant job of showing you how to handle the thread as well as work with the conditions of the performance environment. Ammar shows what hook ups are out there and goes over some of the advantages and disadvantages of each. I really enjoyed this series and believe it is invaluable to all people interested in thread work.

This is one cool disk, giving the work on a lot of neat stuff. I bought this so I could learn the "penetrated mike stand". But I can't possibly imagine what reel you would use for that one. A standard ITR won't pull a scarf that fast. Not even my bill snatcher moves that fast. If you are doing that trick, please let me know what reel you are using.

Awesome. Michael Ammar has selected some great effects here and what's great is that they're all useable in the real world. There's a little bit of tricky setting up but certainly nothing too complicated (like some magician's try and market). I brought all three DVDs and I would recommend you do the same because each DVD has some great tricks on it!

I bought the set to learn to use invisible thread and found that while some of the effects are tricky and the thread can be a real pain to use some are worth it. I am a real fan of the silk through microphone stand and the good news is this does not use the thread. If you like thread this is a DVD and series you will want as there are so many effects to learn. They can be a bit overwhelming at times.
