Training right now! Smile
It feels very doable. The hook-up and the IT feel secure when in standby mode (set up and ready to go).

Here is a very quick video of a couple effects taught. I still need to train a lot but I thought I would need more time than an hour to get down the basics. More news next week, I won't be able to play with it for a few days sadly.

Wow - very good and thank you so much for posting! Already it looks like you are doing really well and as a compliment to you, probably making it look a lot easier than it actually is. Looking forward to more performances inc variations of the haunted deck etc,
Thank you for your time and effort thinking of us on the Café 👍🏼

Don't really care for the ring effect although it looks good. What else is on the tutorial.

Louis. Thanks for the video. It certainly looks as though you have the ring effect down.
Like others I wonder about what I need to wear.

These days, I no longer do formal shows, that is to say wear a coat.

I like to be able to wear just a short sleeved tee shirt if possible. I suspect that Venom will no work with a tee shirt that I need at least a long sleeve shirt.

BTW, I think it is appropriate for people to ask questions here, certainly of others who have purchased the device.
God alone knows how much stuff I have picked up in the last 57 years, stuff that I would not have picked up had this forum existed way back when. I mean expecting the folks at the Ellusionist to answer questions which might put a sale in jeopardy is just not realistic. While it is not appropriate to divulge information that one might call proprietary with respect to an effect that is released, it is another when dealing with a methodology that has been out in the public (magic) domain for sometime...like IT.

I have not purchased any of the newer IT devices such as the Spider Pen Pro, Tarantula, Cobra, or Surya's Device (original or pro.) I have been thinking of picking up perhaps one of them and am hard pressed to decide which one. Now along comes Venom!

So, if others are having the same dilema, I offer this way of deciding. Just click and spin the wheel: http://wheeldecide.com/index.php?id=128152

Sleeves have nothing to do with it. As previously discussed in this very thread, you could put it in your pants pockets.

As Christopher said, it is possible from the Jeans pockets and it is briefly mentioned in the video.
I did not try to do it yet, I might if you want. Although I would never perform like this because they would not be completely hidden.
If you are scared of pocket space, safety pins can be used beside your pockets.

Very happy with this.
The quality of the gimmicks is fantastic. Many small design changes
have resulted in an ITR that is easy to repair, maintain, and use.

I feel confident that this will be the last set of ITRs I will ever buy unless
Magie Factory tells me otherwise one day.

The video is full of great ideas that use this hook up to provide the best
of both IT and IET functionality in a convenient package.

If you love the floating ring, Xiang Liu's Si Fi project has some hot takes
on this effect as well.

Okay - Back to practice.

Andrew, you said, "I like to be able to wear just a short sleeved tee shirt if possible. I suspect that Venom will no work with a tee shirt that I need at least a long sleeve shirt. ". I can tell you that, in my opinion, the design and build quality will likely become the de facto standard for mechanical ITRs. It's like they magically removed everything that sucks about ITRs.

The concepts and handling they share are on point and the specific effects shown are as-advertised. I see these as being very versatile, high-end utility devices. Now, I will say that a short sleeve t-shirt would probably be challenging if you want to perform all of the effects shown *exactly as shown* but, as has been said earlier on, there's more than one way to skin a cat.

If you've been holding off buying an ITR because you need reliability and versatility, buy Venom. I can almost guarantee you'll like your decision. (I'm not affiliated with Magie Factory so I can't offer a real satisfaction guarantee. Now, if I could only figure out a way to get paid for pitching their product... Smile

I agree and I love Si Fi as well. Xiang's ring routines look very magical compared to competitor routines. I practiced it to a a point where I felt comfortable performing it in public but I noticed that the hookup was causing the t***d to become entangled when coming back at its rest position. I don't know how to avoid this and had to stop using it, if you have tips regarding how to avoid that, I would be very interested.

Finally my Venom is arrived... I still have to play with it but for the first impact it's very good...

Very easily to use and to work on in case you need to adjust something...

Very well realized...

Anyone know a dealer who is selling both Venom and Tarantula 2? Thanks.

Both Magie Factory and Ellusionist are selling their own products only, so I think there are none.

Already watched the tutorial and now waiting for my Venom ITRs to arrive.
I'am really really impressed with the quality, ideas and concepts of the videos.
Arthur is an amazing performer!! Very cautious teaching and everything looks more than doable.
My love for thread work got a new spark! I'am already thinking about getting a second set for one of the effects.

BTW. Time Stop reminded me of Dead Drop by Loki Kross.

Looks to be the exact same effect and hookup in that instance.
I do not own the rights to the hookup in DD anymore though, a major IT manufacturer does.
I don't know if they were involved in this, but it's probably on their radar.

This is the first I have seen or heard of this, surprised no one reached out to me, but not really.
