Levitation. Good books, sites, articles anything. Methods, ideas etc. What couldn't you live without? As in product, method, whatever

Best website:

http://www.emagicsupply.com

And your first purchase should be the Web Spinner and its DVD.

It will save you a world of problems.

I think the best advice I ever got was Mark Mason on Penguin live. He uses the standard (very large) ITR. he has a special tip for how to go months without breaking the line. I tried it and it works wonderfully! I haven't broken a line in months.

Wanna share the tip? Im sure one tip on keeping IT breakproof (so to speak) isn't breaking the code. Its not a secret to an effect, as compared to a maintenance action. PM if you thinkit crosses the line. Smile always looking for advise on care and feeding when it comes to IT.

Spinnerets is not a one trick DVD. It's worth every penny. 8 different effects. All new principles. Spin webs like NEVER before. It's on it's way to Jeff McBride for review on his Monday Night Magic web TV show. It's also on it's way to the World Magic Shop for review on their weekly Wizard Product Review show, tune in.

Thank you,

Spinnerets are interesting. $150 for a DVD is too much. Sorry. I've done IT since Duschek's "Wunderbar" came out in the 70s. Beginners need to understand the use and performance of IT thoroughly before spending $50, let alone four times times that.

A spool of Woolly Nylon for $4-6 and The I.T. Manual (above) is all you need to start. Less than $20. Don't get sucked in by the hype. Professionals might do well with the Spinnerets. Myself, I find JoeJoe's Web Spinner the best $20 I ever spent on anything IT related.

This is not your ordinary IT reel. I honestly can't think of any problem it doesn't solve. You will never have to strip thread again! I use
X-Factor X-tra strong thread. It took 4 yrs. to find the perfect thread. It's 400 ft. of thread, divided in 50 individual reels as small as your thumb nail. These can fit in any small container. Carry over 200 reels in one pocket. If the thread breaks, spin another directly under the spectator's nose. NO MORE FAKE BATHROOM BREAKS! The DVD contains many new principles and effects. Once you use them you will NEVER go back. Simplicity at your fingertips. My double handed flotation can be done on the spot without notice. No more walking around hooked to a thread, being afraid that it will break before performance. Spinnerets are great for both advanced and beginners. I designed spinnerets to make life easier and cut out the hassle of thread work. Spinnerets were designed with the thread worker in mind.

Cigam4,
A very interesting commercial.
But for 150 bucks I'll wait for a review.

Hey guys, I have a question.
I want to perform in my act a routine which a silk is placed on the floor
and when I call it, it "flies" toward my hand.
Mesika's tarantula and spider-pen are making the silk "fly" too slow.
I didn't try Kennedy's Gimmicks (Power-reel and Hummingbird Reel), but in their videos -
the silk is flying Horizontally. and I don't know whether it'll fly the same speed Vertically.

does someone have an idea for a proper gimmick to use?
thank you very much!
