The ring thing looks crazy!! Not use if I should compare this to Tarantula 2...this one is a lot more expensive...

And about the chest level thing, couldn't I just perform it at waist/stomach level?


Because we all know the preferred back drop to any performance is some random dude's crotch.

If you perform down low like that, the audience has to look down (Unless they are seated and you are standing, in which case they're just staring at your junk, which is uncomfortable).

On top of that, it becomes awkward to interact in these instances. They have to look up to speak to you or listen to what you're saying, and then back down to see what you're talking about. Also they're rarely seeing your face in those instances, so they don't associate the magic with you - that's bad marketing.

All in all, I really don't think you should do that.

Also, I think if you use the standard hookup taught but put it in the jeans pockets, the pockets themselves will interfere with the thread.

There is a hookup taught with a jeans pocket, using only one Venom reel, but that will not allow you to do what you're seeing in the trailer I don't think.

Oh! Looks like I spoke too soon. I hadn't been able to watch the entire video yet, and at the end they do describe a hookup for the pants pockets. Though they are using slacks, not jeans.

Thanks for all the information Geraint and WitchDocChris! Really appreciated!

And you raise a good point of the spectators looking down at your crotch but I guess stomach level will be away enough from that area for me!

I'm guessing since Geraint is saying that you can do them in jeans aswell then the hookup taught for pants pockets aren't just limited to slacks!

Thanks again!

Yeah, thinking about how they have it in slacks, you could do it with jeans. I still think that's not the best way, but you do you.

Not the best way as in it won't work as well or because of where the effect will happen (at stomach level instead of chest level)??

Thanks

It looks a lot like Hanson Chien's "Freeze", a great visual and practical trick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSxY3_zUQS4&feature=youtu.be


I watched the Freeze clip - AWESOME almost more so than the ring (Nah they are both excellent!).

So I looked if Freeze was available .... but it's not...... BUT Hanson Chein will be teaching this in his Penguin lecture being filmed on the 3rd of August! Very exciting!

Moving a glass bottle is not really a big deal. I do it often with just a loop.
The performance is what really makes it all worth while.

This is by far the most excited I've been about a release in years. Can't wait to hold this in my own hands. Appreciate any more tips or ideas. Cheers.

Okay. I've just watched the first 25 minutes of the video, and I can tell it is already worth it. If you use an itr already, you're a fool if you don't get it right away. No one put this much thought into an itr ever. And when you think this thing cannot get any better, Arthur comes in and blows your mind Smile
I will write a more detailed review as soon as I have this tool in my hands. The video was sent early to the customers.

Thanks so much, and I know we are really looking forward to the more detailed review and other real works reviews. It would also be good to see some live performances of this - getting into it and the performance of different effects of the potential of what this can do and is capable of over other ITR's

OK I will do my best!

Just a few points which are really key to me :
- it is easy to find the end of the broken thread : you only need to take a cap off and pull. The thread is very accessible.
- there is a way to prepare a wax ball inside the itr so that if you break the thread, finding the end is just a matter of pulling on the ball! So resetting is even quicker.
- the thread tension is very easily and quickly modulable (as in between routines in front of the spectators if you really need).
- you can also set it to allow only a certain length of thread to unwind.
- finally what Arthur does with 2 itrs solves many problems all of us have when using one. I know it is very counter-intuitive but this makes me want to try even more Smile

This is a breakthrough! Smile

They told me it's a special thread, which isn't sold (yet) on the market, it's slightly more visible than the Mesika one


So is it safe to perform this close up?

It is intended for close-up and Arthur uses it in close-up. IT rules still apply and subtilities are told to limit the timeframe in which you are exposed.
I will confirm the usability when I receive it. Smile
