Venom by Magie Factory
JulianMe gustó mucho como siempre los vídeos son perfectos en ellusionist, me parece buen producto si pero para el precio que tiene no, podrían haber hecho las tapas superiores de aluminio como el tubo o algo más resistente se me rompió muy fácil y busque la manera de repararlo, el hilo se rompe más fácil de lo que parece y por 150$ podrían haber enviado más hilo, le puse hilo invisible normal y bueno creo que es cuestión de práctica y así fue hoy en dia lo uso mucho aprendí a no tenerle tanto miedo y a destrabar el hilo cuando se enreda buen producto si no eres novato pero deberían poner una clasificación a lo que venden esto no es para ningún mago nuevo en el arte, sigo inconforme con lo que costó pero hoy en día lo uso muy bien.
ES EXCELTE PRODUCTO SI YA SABES USAR HILOS.
JohnDON'T BUY THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE. You're much better off getting a different itr. This thing is so overpriced and it doesn't even function reliably. If you really want something like this go on amazon and buy 2 of those really cheap reels. The only thing that makes this worth any money AT ALL is the video. Video could probably sell for like 50. I am SOOOOOOO mad!!!! No returns either so out 160 instantaneously. DO NOT BUY
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 $159 thread reels. Since I can’t do the tricks I bought, I have to give this one star. Save your money.
SummaryI have owned quite a few it products, from stripping my own wooly nylon, drilling out a watch, inserting a cotton bud plastic and using that with fearson hookup for the tarantula. Have used the boss itr with kevlar thread for that with it sewn into end of sleeve. This is far the most versatile i've had. I had a tangle today whilst working. Ring got caught up. I couldn't do what Arthur does in a short amount of time, but I was working again in 5 min. Made the excuse that some one had requested me on another table. Had already done the knot, but had to check it.
Thread is a lot more visible than others, but gives you more confidence when you've got your lighting correct
DylanNot worth it. Not easy to use and does not work as well as it does in the video. Don't bother.
sandraI had this for a while now, and at first, it was awesome. The method was amazing, the explanation video was great, but, the I.T keeps getting caught in the devise. It gets tangled and I have to rethread it. I have tried all the tips, but nothing worked. Its 159$ down the drain.
SummaryThe quality of the thread is not good. I mean it's not practical. Its not worth $159. I want to return this product :-(
They make a big deal about how durable it is, but that is half true, because yes, the cylinder is great, but everything else is cheap plastic...
my cap broke within a week, they send me new ones...great! and then the handles of the device broke too.
The thing is that the effect is really amazing and on the go! but the preparation system and plastic quality just make me sad.
SummaryFirst off let me just say I love Ellusionist and they're products that they offer. The venom ITR is a dream when it functions. The metal chassis is wonderful as this will last you forever, you can tell the love they put into the production of the product, on the other hand there are a few caveats. When you work with ITR it will tangle or snag sometimes, that's just the nature of what your working with. Specifically there is one major design flaw in my opinion, being the plastic caps. As you use the device, you will need to remove the caps when a tangle occurs, this leads to the caps becoming loose (this is inevitable). As the caps become loose they do not sit tightly on top of the ITR, this in turn leads to more snags as the IT then slips under the loosened cap and under the ball bearing, causing you to have to remove the caps even more! This becomes a bit of a loop (pun intended). Ive found pulling the IT out and upwards, rather than downwards, can alleviate this. Anyways the company is based in France and although they offer replacement part kits in tiers (caps, bearings, etc.) if you are in America this will cost extra due to inflation and shipping. It is 19 euros (21USD) for two new caps/clips and bottom plastic pieces (They offer several different "kits" the cheapest being the "spare parts kit" which is the latter). Shipping is 25EU (28USD), on top of this they have a minimum purchase limit of 25EU. This is frustrating as you will just want to replace the caps but cannot purchase them as this does not exceed the limit, forcing you to spend more money. So if your caps loosen (which they will..) you are looking at, at least 56 dollars for plastic pieces. Now when it functions it is awesome, you truly feel as if you have telekinetic powers. It all depends on if it is worth it to you, I just wish I had some of this information before making a decision. Keep in mind this is a small company based out of France making specialty products for a small market so the overhead is probably quite a bit. One last tidbit is the thread that comes with the ITR is to my knowledge Fearson's X2 stage vectra, this is not listed anywhere and they offer thread replacement on their website in one of the accessory kits, so it will be cheaper to buy a spool of this elsewhere like amazon or such.
So to recap... Awesome product, attention to detail, very fun and gets great reactions. If only the caps were constructed of something more durable like aluminum it would last quite a long time. It is alot of fun though :)
SummaryAmazing product 5/5 !
