El Hilo by Javi Benitez

El Hilo (Spanish for 'The Thread') is the best take on the classic gypsy thread we've ever seen. Taking the age old effect and adding a handling so clean, it fooled us 6 times in a row. 

Everything happens in the spectators hands, they tear the thread, roll it into a ball, and then slowly they restore the thread back to its original form. 

Magic this clean should be criminal. 

But here’s the kicker… Once again the thread is rolled into a ball, only to disintegrate into nothing but dust. 

El Hilo comes with everything you need to get started, with 2 hand spun spools of specialty thread, crucial to a smooth, mind blowing performance + magic dust refills for a kicker ending that nobody can see coming. 

FISM Winner and Penn & Teller fooler Javi Benitez, will take you through an in-depth tutorial in his signature Spanish style, ensuring you have the guidance needed to pull off the smoothest gypsy thread routine the world has ever seen.

    The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is he says you can get the Magic Dust on Ellusionist and so far I have not been able to find it unless I order it from his website overseas and pay the shipping.

    Is it on this Website?

    This is a great routine. Very simple and direct. We must appreciate peoples time and effort in creating illusions. We buy from great people because they spent time to develop their craft. Great job Javi.
  5. Summary

    For the price you pay you should get a DVD with this or you should at least be able to download the instructions, you don't get either. In my opinion this is overpriced for what you get. That's the bad, the good part is that it is a great method to an old trick.
  6. Summary

    A great method to an old trick! I gave this 4 stars cause of 2 reasons:
    1. The fact you have to watch the instructions over the internet for $50 I think a DVD should have been included, there is NO WAY the stuff you do get is worth $50.
    2. Like I said its a great method to an old trick, but it's overpriced. Its not worth $50
  7. Summary

    The trick is easy to perform, the teaching is incredible, and you get plenty of product! I love this!
  8. Summary

    DON’T BUY THIS TRICK! It is too good.

    P.S. Watch the video first. Don’t eat anything beforehand.
  9. Summary

    Warning! Alot of times when I order with companies, u get candy with the order. Really nice, and always funny. Now with the order I made,I received candy. Happens to be ,that is was just on a candy rush. So those 2 block when strait to the stomach. After that,I watch the video and realized what I did. So people, when u receive this order, first watch the video
  10. Summary

    This is insane! Javi's explanation and dedication is absolutely brilliant. This is so good it almost feels like it shouldn't be for sale, but only almost. This is the dream routine for anyone who has done the torn and restore thread or wants to do it. Magic is always so much powerful when happens in the spectator's hands. Get this now, before Ellusionist realize it is too good to sell.
