The release took a while but the wait was worth it!! I really liked Tarantula 2 and it is everything
I was expecting. There isn't a DVD but a link to see the explanations. The effects are well
explained by Yigal and I think that they are clear enough for those who have some experience
working with IT. The IT is surprisingly thin and strong and difficult to see, of course in the good
conditions (like every IT).
The battery duration is good, and a charging cable is included in
the box. I don't know if it's normal but my battery moves a little bit, like if it wasn't glued
enough but well thats not a big issue but I though relevant to mention.
If the IT breaks is
really easy to put it back.
Talking about the "hands free" is doable but there is a small issue
that I'll explained bellow.
So why 4 stars? Well there are a few factors:
- The motor
is fast enough but not that strong, you can lift a bill but not a bicycle card.
- You canot
download the tutorial from Yigal's website
- These two first factors are important but "I can
live with that" I put 4 stars essentially because of the "lock button". I don't know if I am the
only one to have some problems whit it. In my opinion, the "lock button" is not actually a "lock
button" since you have to keep pressing with the finger all the time to lock the IT, giving the hand
an unnatural look, since you need a lot of strength to do it!! So I use other ways to lock the IT
with my fingers to prevent that.
That of course is a problem for the hands free part because
once you are in your set up and you put the device in (secret part) as explained "there is not a
hand there to lock the IT" so the object must be heavy enough to prevent the IT to return to the
device. So there is a small problem while levitating light objects with the hands free
Besides this last point, Tarantula 2 is perfect, is a practical device to
work with IT, I loved it and I think that is absolutely worth it.
I totally recommend this
product to those who have some experience and love working with IT. It is practical as well for
beginners but i recommend first to get used to classic IT work to avoid breaking the IT with the
Tarantula 2 and buying a lot of spools :P
