Sorry for answering in this thread, but did anybody get the new Alpha ITR Reel from Sorcery?
Is there really any difference with the usual ITR's?

The thread on that one is the best balance of invisible and strongest I've had. Plus the tension is just right and works over and over again. If you do the right hook-ups with it you can do some killer effects and end completely clean. Plus the thing is far cheaper.

That's just my two cents.


I agree 100%. The TM2 can be hard to find and usually has to be back ordered directly from Mark. It's beyond worth the wait. This is the best reel in my book. Cheaper than sorcery, better thread, perfect tension every time, easy to retrieve the thread after breakage (I HATE those little beads!), and a HUGE retraction distance. I can't believe these aren't the industry standard. Gizmos are neat, but the novelty can wear off. Mark Allen's TM2 is a WORKER!

I got my Tarantula a few weeks ago but I am out of thread and waiting for delivery. The thing still works, but there is a little crack in the middle on the side, I hope it does not tear any further.
I have difficulties hovering a ring. I was hoping Mesika would show how to attach the ring to the thread, but the DVD does not make anyone any wiser on this. Anybody out there has any tips on how to do this and how to practice ?
Many thanks.


Attaching the thread to the ring is explained on the DVD, that's how I learned to do it. Also, you say your Tarantula is out of thread? How is it out of thread?

BTW, the tip on the dollar store batteries is great, picked up 2 packs of them Smile

Thinking things over a bit, I guess that if the thread kept breaking, you would run out of thread. I'm watching the DVD right now, it shows how to attach the ring & do the routine. My question is, what DVD are you watching?

I have had 0 problems with mine & I just got done setting the Tarantula for hovering(I have been doing it with the regular Fearson hook up). The fact that I was able to take it apart & get it back together as explained should be a testament to how well made this thing is. Usually when I take something apart, that's the end of it for me.

I'm really enjoying this little thing Smile

If you are a novice to thread work don't buy this. Get leclair's book and msl.
If you have the tarantula. MSl from Fearson is a must have. If you have not purchased a tarantula, get Msl first. If you don't like the setting up and wish for a faster Fearson hook up. Then get a tarantula.
Yigal's dvd that comes with the tarantula is very good, but if more detail was explained about the customization and the fine points of holding the tarantula correctly where explained a bit better most of the complaints we are seeing could be avoided. There is play in the switch(This play is there to prevent the switch from breaking), if not held correctly you will hear a click when pressed, this click is almost indistinguishable from the click you may here when it is in the correct position. This is not a motor failure or problem with parts. You need to make sure the tarantula is in the correct position. If you are having a problem pm. I have had no problems with mine when held correctly. In my opinion this is a well made device and very clever. Replacing the spool is very easy. I have had mine for a few weeks now and I am still on my first spool. I practice with this everyday. for experience I.T workers, I.T breaking should not be an issue.
