Based on the old adv copy, the new pen is made in steel, got remote control, pre-set dancing pattterns and the thread can be locked.

If this was still truth, $75 is a bargain. I may buy a few more after I tried it out.


Are you guys talking about the new Spider Pen or Tarantula???

Wise owl I couldn't resists either! pre ordered mine at magicwhiz with a free knockout deck. They have a pretty good return customer policy too.


Congrats on your first post. I do not see where the free deck is mentioned... BUT they offer free shipping.


Thank you! I felt the need to tell everyone I am getting the tarantula. It looks amazing!

Click on the right banner and you will get to their promotions page. Spend $50 and pick any 1 magic trick from the list for free. http://www.MagicWhiz.com/magic-promotions.html. The Knockout deck is the first item on the second row.

I have ordered from them twice before and have not gotten any problems!

Hi Doug

Is Taranchula = the new spider pen pro??


We are talking about the Tarantula, the spider pen pro is around 250 USD, uses the same spider pen refill, the spider pen pro will be available directly from Mesika, just drop him an email to end up on the "list" so you can get yours when the next batch is ready (according to their answer, it should be available in a few weeks)

Now, I am wondering what kind of refills the Tarantula uses (as in the same as the spider pen? some new stuff? and how much will the refills costs? how many do we get with the Tarantula?)
Double posters should be shot!

No really!!

The refill for the Tarantula thread is the spider spooler...same as spider pen. The battery is a button cell type, common for watches and other items. Easy to get.
As far as what is coming with it. Not sure yet. We don't have the actual packaging, I would assume one spooler and battery.

Is there any performance capabilities difference between the Tarantula and the Pro pen or is it just one is plastic and the other is mental with more of an up market look. I'm led to believe the Pro has a remote control unit with it

Well, I don't have the complete details on the spider pen pro but this is what I have heard.
the spider pen pro will be made much better then the first version. It will be programable, you can get some good distance away from the floating object. I think the first video link posted here is showing him using the spider pen pro.
Of course the price is a big difference, MSRP $250.00. The Tarantula will be more for in your hands, on a table and on the floor by your feet.
As soon as we get more info on the pro I will post it for sure.

Ah.. no wonder it is that cheap. I am confused with the two products. USD250 for spider pen made much more sense and looking forward for it. Thanks to clarify fellows.

For Tarantula, its too late, I already bought it... hopes that it is good and worth the money.

I also have J.Kennedy's electronic reel. I do not use it very often because you need to press the button for the retracement and to create tension.... Hopes that Tarantula has more advance features than just a electronic reel??

I have the Tarantula. I bought it at the IBM-SAM convention.

IT IS NOT THE SPIDER PEN PRO. IT IS NOT A PEN AT ALL. It is a very clever device that spools thread, but allows you to apparently show your hands empty at any time.

If you think it's a pen, then you guys have been fooled better than anyone else.

Do you own the Spider Pen Pro? Which do you recommend?

I think the Tarantula appeals more to me than the pen. I wonder about the size of it ( smaller than John Kennedy's Stealth retractor?).

I would say it is really a lot like Esoteric. I know Finn Jon won't mind. Esoteric was out a long time before Nick Einhorn's trick was.

How messy can this effect get with ITR running around all over the place?
If I speak forth, many a mind will shatter,
And if I write, many a pen will break.
.....and when I consider my own self, lo, I find it coarser than clay!

OK, I am confused here???

Spider pen Pro the thingy here, or is the Tarantula the watch? Or is it a totally different device? And How much for Tarantula??? $250?? I know my buddy bought a SSP at a convention about 10-12 months ago for $80 bucks from Masika himself, and the thing broke from the ring connecting the pen, he said Masika had to go back to the drawing board. Now, what is what here? is the Tarantula the Watch??? Totally new device???

Thanks! Smile

Esoteric and Spooked are totally different methods. Spooked uses any deck Esoteric is so gaffed that you have to be careful with it.

How about the difficulty (I mean with good practice): is it reliable?

yes, that's right.
I never used esoteric deck.
I think the finn John ideas are beautiful only in his own hands.

I have seen other tricks that rely heavily on the so called "Fearson" hook. Is this a classic yet or they are friends of him? Is it "legal" or "ethic" to use a technique created by other magician to promote your own product or trick?

I don't ask this to kick Yigal's work, wich I'm sure is a great device for IT. Im asking to understand and because I'm in a similar position with a trick of mine.

If any of the greats can answer this dilemma... I'd be grateful
