Venom by Magie Factory
BrysonThe download for this product is great. The set-up is very clever. As long as you have a light enough ring and a place without direct light, you can accomplish every trick shown in the video. However, the actual thread reels and support are unacceptable for a $159 product. The plastic caps on top of the reels begin to crack after two weeks of use. I ran out of thread within a month. The only way to get replacement caps or more thread is through Magie Factory with inflated prices (you have to buy a minimum amount, 25 Euro, but that is more than the thread costs, so you have to buy more than one pack) and long shipping times. Even that would be fine, but Magie Factory is currently out of thread. Sure you CAN technically use other thread, but most of the tricks in the demo won’t work with other types of thread. So now I have 2 useless $159 thread reels. Since I can’t do the tricks I bought, I have to give this one star. Save your money.
SummaryI have owned quite a few it products, from stripping my own wooly nylon, drilling out a watch, inserting a cotton bud plastic and using that with fearson hookup for the tarantula. Have used the boss itr with kevlar thread for that with it sewn into end of sleeve. This is far the most versatile i've had. I had a tangle today whilst working. Ring got caught up. I couldn't do what Arthur does in a short amount of time, but I was working again in 5 min. Made the excuse that some one had requested me on another table. Had already done the knot, but had to check it.
Thread is a lot more visible than others, but gives you more confidence when you've got your lighting correct
DylanNot worth it. Not easy to use and does not work as well as it does in the video. Don't bother.
