I'm still looking forward to these being released. Does anyone have any more information on them?

Me too, I'm still looking forward to these. Hopefully all the problems are solved in the second version of Spider Pen.

Hello everyone! I just wanted to thank those of you who had a chance to stop by our booth at the IBM/SAM 2008 combined convention in Louisville, KY and pre-ordered our new Spider Pen Pro. Unfortunately we were only able to take pre-orders on 100 pieces, and have since then completely sold out. So, if you were one of the lucky folks to order the item in time, you should be receiving your unit in the next two to three weeks.

We will post a video of the convention in the next couple of weeks so that everyone can view a demo of the product, however it will not be ready until after we have replenished our supply, and the item is available for sale once again.

Since 2004, the Original Spider Pen has been an incredible success with magicians all around the world; introducing the idea to the magic community. There have been many improvements in technology from its initial release though, which have otherwise allowed me to implement new, advanced features that would not have been available at that time. This is why I have decided to include them in my new Spider Pen Pro.

The big additions on the new Spider Pen Pro are a power saving function with a longer-lasting battery, plus a remote control and toe-switch feature. With the toe-switch, you will be able to remotely perform with hands free operation over 30 ft. away; all the while with no suspicious movements or hand gestures. This will allow you to focus on your performance, instead of where your thread is located. Levitate a dollar bill or other small object; making it raise or fall under your command. Or, try our new "Dancing Effect" feature, and have it jump up and down as though it were possessed (much like Fred Kaps' dancing cork or Kevin James' floating rose).

Like our Original Spider Pen, the Spider Pen Pro also uses the same Spider Spools which many online retailers already carry. Just place one spool one top of the pen, and you're ready to perform.

As I mentioned before, the pre-orders for the Spider Pen Pro have completely sold out, though we will certainly keep you updated as to when they will be ready for sale once more. Here's an ad that we created for the item, and should answer a lot of your questions, though you can always email us through the website at: http://www.YigalMesika.Com

Sincerely,
Yigal Mesika

P.S.: For those of you who were at the convention, it would be much appreciated if you might be able to give your sincere, initial opinions on the Spider Pen Pro for those who missed it.

Just by looking at the adv, I already fell in love with it!!

I am glad it is made with steel, so now it looks like a normal pen. Unfortunately I am not in US and can't buy it frm the convention.

Just would like to know:
1) How much is it?
2) Will it be included with effects DVD?
3) When will it be ready for the public?
4) Do you limited one per person who order??

How much? I'm guessing $100? Def worth it if so, compared to the cheap construction of the first Pen.

I'd bet closer to $200. Around $190 or so.

^ Def will not disagree with that, I'm actually thinking around the same price as ET ($149-150). I'll get it no-matter what... Totally feasible considering the construction of the pen and what Yigal's offering. I seriously cannot wait for this, and the pen looks just like the chrome looking pen I walk around with at work, can't get any better! No tangling, bouncy floaty objects, uses triple "A" batteries, crome finish, no cracking, toe switch, no movement! Just WOW! Smile

Can't wait for this pen! I had the first one, and it was great. No issues with breakage really. This new one sounds excellent though!

I bought the original pen back in 2004. I liked it and it worked well, but ultimately, I never used it, mostly because I thought it looked a little fishy, and I wasn't a fan of the tiny batteries.

This new one looks fantastic though! Looks normal, uses a more standard battery, and has some nice new features as well. Wish I could've gone to Kentucky this year and seen it!

Looking forward to a demo, pricing info, etc. I think this will be one hot item!

Yeah when things are too gimmicky then can be uncomfortable to work with. This new one seems promising. Looking forward to the new features.

My buddy tells me Yigel was selling some of these at the convention for $80. I also heard the pen kept popping apart for some due to issue's with the middle ring on the Pen, so yigel had to go back to the drawing board and put a better ring on the pen. Just reporting what I been told.Smile

Let's hope it is better than Spider Pen I, which was trash (read the Café posts - it seems that half the posters' - mine included - did not work). Does anyone know if this one is reliable? It's a good concept; the execution or engineering were poor on the first version . . .

Wow...so they are still made in China huh?! Smile
I mean honestly; Why can't they make a quality product that doesn't fall apart after a few uses? I'd definatively pay more for a quality prop.

I am looking into Sean's iThread as well.
