Actually the T.I.E.S. setup is WELL worth it IF you use loops a lot. The advantage is that you get mega amounts of proper thread, (already spooled) and that you can knock off loops of just about any size in about...35 seconds from start to finish. I just timed myself. But if you just want an occaissional loop, then do what you are already doing...Just my 2 cents worth.
If you ever get to a point where words have no meaning, you're probably talking to a dog.

Guy, can you mention some great effects using loops? Would appreciate it, I've had very little experience with loops you know.

Thanks a lot.

All the best!

By the way, Fearson's hookup can float anything from ballpoint pens, to dollar bills. I use it for most of my floating purposes.


THANX for the great post:D

Here's one I'll share with ya...

Sulky "Smoke" invisible, #232, comes in 440 yd spools and is imported from Italy. It's like fishing line, and from a short distance, if you have a busy-patterned shirt, and/or background, it cannot be seen. Take a black Magic Marker and zebra-stripe it before using. Turn your head to the left, and stick out your right elbow. Twice the distance from your chin to elbow, is the right length, and tie a loop.

Do the one-point method, and it's a killer effect with soda cans, silks, and if you use the Astrosphere, well, you can drop the cloth, and make the ball go from hand to hand before wrapping up the routine.

Glad to not have to share this in the "open" forum... Smile

Fearson hook is is awesome. I smoke and use that at the campus bars and our pubs.... I actually got T.V. exposure for Fearson's floating cig....

You gotta try it.... don't even smoke, or like Bill Clinton... don't inhale... it's a shame you havent tried it... tisk tisk
(at least get creative and float a life saver or bubble wand or something)

I bought that a few years ago and always always love performing that trick.. but when I bought it it cost $20. Now he's vitually giving it away for $5. I wish it was more expensive then not a lot of people would know it, hehehe

I have the Losander DVD on The Art of Levitation Vol. 1 & 2. It came with some elastic threads and four black elastic loops. What surprised me was that the elastic loops did not have any knots on them at all. I wonder how these were made?

Just got the elastic thread source, stripped it, and made several loops. But I just realized that single elastic thread is very fine and break easily. So how much threads do you use for a good loop? And how do you count it?

I just worked for weeks to work up my 50 posts to get in here, and boy was it worth it!

Thanks for the great tying instructions. Did you know that Loops are $15 a pack at Tannen's?

Of course, that's what mail-order vendors are for!

Now all I need is to decide what the best source for the thread.

Any suggestions?

Guy, and all others,

Thanks for an excellent thread and all of the info and willingness to share.

Regarding the T.I.E.S. system, I understand that it originally came with white IT. Is that correct? And, does anyone know if you can now buy the system with the large supply of black IT? And, I assume that since loops are being made, the loops are being made with elastic IT. Is that a correct assumption?

Thanks for the info.

Tora,

You are partially correct; the prior posts do indicate that the TIES system is elastic IT. Chalk that portion of my question up to the lateness of the hour (3:33 A.M.) and "Brain Fade". Sorry.

Actually, that portion of my question was an afterthought. My main question was trying to ascertain whether or not the TIES system now comes with black IT.

And, as long as I am renewing that portion of my question, I'll also follow up and ask (from any of the people who have purchased the TIES system) for a "strength" evaluation of the TIES elastic IT. Is it comparable to Wizardcraft's elastic IT (both the black and the clear versions)?

Thanks for the info.

Mike

I know this link has been referred to before but just in case someone reading this thread has not visited the site, Ron Jaxon has a forum with some good info on all the above items:

Sorry if everybody already knew that.
