Psi Power Ė Secret Factory

Product description: Are you looking for a motorized reel, powered by a battery and that you can activate with a remote? Look no further, Psi Power is one of the best out there. But be careful, this reel isnít made for IT stuff, it uses a thicker Nylon thread which is way more visible. But the way youíll be using it is also different from the usual IT work so Psi Power has its own usage. Letís find out if the price is right and how is the quality on this one!

Price and where to buy it: This is sold at $99.95 and you can find it here : www.magicdream.fr

What you get: You get a metal box with inside a lot of things: the main unit, made out of a 3D printer and the remove (which is actually bigger than the reel itself) also made out of 3D printing. The unit is big like a sugar cube, a bit bigger and flatter actually. Youíre also provided with a charging cable (classic micro usb), a spool of thread and some pieces of white tack, so you get everything you need in order to start using the product. The video in itself is not perfect but you understand everything you need and it gets your ideas flowing. Overall, this is a steal I think, it works well and itís not that expensive.

The pros and the cons: Here is the core of my review, let's begin with the cons, as I will usually be doing, I prefer to keep the good things for the end.

THE CONS:
This thing is powerful! Which is very good but also quite bad at the same time, if you ever get the thread back without anything attached to it, there is a high chance that it will break.
The thread is not invisible, this is not designed for close-up work but more for stage or parlor.

THE PROS:
The price is actually very good, you get a remote, a reel and many accessories for less than $100, which will allow you to do a lot of effects.
As I said in the previous pro, this thing is versatile, you can do a rising card and or flipping a object on the table, so you can really done many things with this tool.
Itís really well made and surprisingly sturdy, I let it fall a few times on the floor and nothing broke, even if itís made out of 3D printing.
I never had a problem with it, I can change the thread very easily and even make another spool if I donít have the time to rewind. The lid can be taken out and you can see inside, everything is quite ďaccessibleĒ.

Overall rating: I like this a lot, you can do a lot of things with it, itís small, powerful and reliable, a must have if youíre looking into this kind of effect, 4/4 hearts.

As for the difficulty level, the presentation here is the most difficult thing since you just have to press on a button to activate the gimmick, 2/5 stars.

Similar products: I know Scorpion by Bobby Motta is a similar tool but I didnít get a chance to look at it.
