Using Invisible Thread or Loops can be an extremely rewarding experience. A lot has been written and filmed and the effects possible are numerous. There is an inherent problem with Invisible Thread and that is that many people are aware of it’s existence and, to some degree, know how using it looks. So it is is highly recommended that when you do venture down this road, you think carefully about what you will be performing.
A common effect floating currency. Now to “crumple” up a note and let it remain suspended between your hands for a few seconds and then unfold it and carry on, is somewhat underwhelming. Especially if you are fiddling around beforehand and taking special care when folding or scrunching up the note. A lot better way to approach this would be to use the note in some effect and add the levitation as part of the overall effect.
Use thread as an invisible touch or to move not just levitate objects. Think out of the box.
Invisible Thread moves into the “brilliant” zone when care is taking during the “hooking up” process. If it looks like there is no way that you are manipulating the levitated object or that it looks impossible that anything can be attached to the object, then you have a miracle.
See Spider Pen
When working with Invisible Thread there are some ingenious reels that can control the thread from the basic reel (thread Boss, mini thread Boss) to the Yigal Mesika superstars – Tarantula and Spider Pen (both are UBER amazing)
Certain thread (Loops, Infinity, Invisible) are elasticated and others that use thread reels or electric motors (Tarantula and Spider Pen) are not.
What do I choose – Invisible Thread or Loops ?
In the long term Invisible Thread are the better option then Loops. You can do a lot more, you can (after a lot of sweat and tears) learn how to tie your own Loops and it is a lot cheaper.
BUT, and it is in Caps for a reason, Loops are the best way to start when working with thread. They are easier to get going and do Magic in a short while. They are easy to slip on and off and to carry around. Loops will snap, but if you break them in (loop around your hands and stretch them gently for a couple of minutes) and if you are aware of their limitations, they will last for a fairly long time. The New Improved Loops come with 8 bands and are the same price as the older version when you got only 5.
