Will early purchasers be offered an opportunity to purchase the remaining contents of the kit (3 Spools of Silk Worm IET [black, Opaque, and clear], 1 extra internal elastic, Instructional DVD [Never before seen Effects and Instructions along with Repair Instructions], and 2 Bonus Accessories) when it becomes available?

Magiguy,
When the kit becomes avaialable there will be a supplimental kit for folks who just ordered the Omega Reel. In fact, it will be less expensive to order the Reel now and the Supplimental kit later, rather than paying full price for the full kit when its avaialable. The cost of the Kits will be determined once we have the Omega Reels launched. I hope that helps?

I love the effect "Spooked" by Nicholas Einhorn but I never liked using the ITRs from Sorcery because They never seem to retract all the way so you have this little tic tack "hanging" from the inside of your jacket. I had purchased additional Sorcery ITRs but always seem to have the same problem.

Enter a knock off reel....the thread was very visible but the "action" was reliable and if you understand Spooked you know that the thread is "camo'd" by your body, floor, etc. I used the knock off for a year(used multiple times per week) before it finally bit the dust. I have not been able to track down the same knock off reel...

Enter Mesika's spider pen. A wonderfull prop but you have to think about the battery power and every once in a while you hit the switch and it doesn't "activate". Also, using the Spider pen with Spooked I had to really "pull" to get the deck to begin the first part of the animation going.

Will the Omega solve these problems? I hope what I said above makes sense. If you know Spooked you will probably understand what I am talking about. Otherwise, please ask me for clarification and I will gladly do so. Thank you for your time all...

Hart Keene,
Your questions make perfect sense to me. I have been working with these things for a while and have found at least with my Omega Reel that the tension must be set correctly. If there is the dangly thing going on then slack must be taken up to prevent it. Will the Omega Reel eliminate the problem. I don't think it will eliminate it but it will make it more accessable to adjust tension. Hope that answers your questions? Remember this is sleightly larger than a U.S. Quarter.

And that is the actual "shape" of the reel as well?

No that's not the shape. And as important as the shape is its a Trade Secret at this point and I would rather not divulge its truth. Everyone will know soon enough. But it is tiny at One and One Fourth Inch.

I have only 12 more slots for the Special. If you want to take advantage I would urge you to act quickly.

Should I expect a confirmation e-mail? Because I ordered it several days ago and yet to hear anything back.

This has good potential in the fact that it has characteristics that I have never seen before in a thread reel.

Good Luck.

Hey Steve how is your project going? I look forward to seeing it.

Ok, I have sold the 25 Omega Reels with the Special. I have had so many people contact me about the special that I will extend it to any who purchase today Sunday the 18th. The cool part about the Special is, that you can't go wrong, two silk worms are the same price as the Omega Reel. If you already have some Silk Worm it will plug right into the Omega Reel.

Hard to resist getting this, since I needed a new ITR anyway, AND I was planning on getting the silk worm thread for loops. If the Omega Reel is as good as it sounds, it's a must-have.

But I'll be patient and wait until a few reviews come out. I know Mr. Mann is a reputable seller, but I'd like to hear others' thoughts. I also want to know whether the Omega Reel with silk worm will work well for tricks that normally use regular IT instead of IET (e.g. floating bill effects).
