There is no such thing as real magic so sacrifices have to be made. For the floating ring that means holding their hand and then taking the ring back unless you want to break the thread. (I don't see why you can't just remove the anchor point though, so maybe this is an option) Check out Spun by Morgan Strebler if you like the concept of the spinning object.

Have you seen Yigal's loop work with a ring? You don't need to tie the ring on.
How does the ring float level like that if it is tied or stuck on with wax? I'll bet it's looped through like Terry Lunceford's hookup.

Have you seen Morgan's work with a spinning coin? Uses an anchor point.

Yes but a coin has a center.

You could use a Chinese style or karate style coin if you want. That way it can land on their finger.

That's not what I meant. What I was saying was that a coin has a center and a ring does not. That means there's more to it than Spun. You can't just stick the thread to the center of the ring to spin it horizontally because there is no center.

I'm thinking something along the lines of how Infinity Ring is held onto its chain.

A karate coin is a coin with a hole in the center, the same as a ring. This would let you spin a coin like a ring.

The thr**d is not being stuck to the ring. It is being looped through.

I suppose you could do it that way but you would tangle the thr**d.

Does anyone here know what type of batteries does the tarantula take? Also is there battery issues like the spider pen?

I believe someone mentioned it uses watch-like batteries.

Doug, I don't understand your point about Karate Coins. I know what they are, but I don't understand why you bring them up. All I was saying was that you can't just attach the thread to a ring and spin it horizontally because there is no horizontal balance point.

What's the point ?
you're clever ?
I don't understand the interest of "how does it works"
If you like this effect, buy it if not don't, that's it !

Doug Lippert makes a good point that with a karate coin you can spin a coin like a ring (because it has a hole in the middle). I think the question is how can you spin a ring like a normal holeless coin. Personally I can't figure out a way to do it, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone else can.

That was my point. A ring has no center.

Thanks Patrick. Does anyone know if the tarantula will will deplete the battery life quickly after using it for a day? I remember spider pen did this.

Don't get too excited.

Reports have told me that The Tarantula is a direct rip-off of Steve Fearson's own thread hook-up... all Mesika has done is added his special reel. To make matters worse, Mesika NEVER obtained permission to use Fearson's hook-up... in fact, Mesika blames Fearson for theft because Steve is releasing his at the same time. The only reason that Steve is releasing his hook-up again side by side with Mesika's product is to avoid issues.
