Yet again, Yigal has taken magic to new heights!Dan White

When Yigal Mesika first introduced the Tarantula it took the magic world by storm and was even hailed as "the most incredible levitation device of all time!". Now, after seven years of re-engineering and refinements, it's back with a vengeance. Once again, Yigal has raised the bar for what a levitation device should be and can do.

Here are the new features that you need to know about:

  • A rechargeable battery that will last you 100 performances on just one single charge. No more expensive batteries!
  • You can instantly lock and unlock the motor at any moment you wish. Absolutely no set-ups!
  • The micro motor is now silent and provides the IT reel with constant perfect tension.
  • Say goodbye to old-school button reel activation! New patented Soul Technology™ is ready when you are and enables you to operate completely hands free.
  • The revolutionary stealth design is now far more intuitive, more comfortable, and extremely easy to master.
  • A brand new video tutorial with Yigal Mesika himself teaching you new effects, performance tips, and psychological subtleties that will elevate your performances to new heights. Beginners and working professionals will definitely be blown away by this high-impact content.

Effects You'll Learn:

  • Floating Candy/Lifesaver
  • Hover-Ring
  • Haunted Pack
  • Floating Bill
  • Magnetic Bill
  • Bonus PK Touches

The Tarantula II allows you to levitate objects on-the-go in almost every light condition. You can operate completely hands-free without having to wear any special jewelry or clothing and the magic happens right under the spectator's nose and you can perform completely surrounded.

NOTE: Each unit comes with thread and a wax ball.

    george asks: My Tarantula 2 suddenly lost tension and motor stopped working. In the instructions Yigal says it only has to be charged once every 4 months and mine has only been charged for a week. I just put it back on the charger to see if that fixes it. If it doesn't, what do I do?

Customer reviews for Tarantula 2


This is the best product I've ever bought. Truly worth the money. Mastered it in a day.



This is the one.
Look no further.

All I wanted was a more robust Tarantula with a rechargeable battery.
I heard that these criteria were met and purchased without watching the trailer.

I am blown away with what this new tarantula is capable of! I used to have one Tarantula set in a locked position for certain levitations and another one ready to make a bill fly across the stage. Now, you can lock it to the desired length in the MIDDLE of an effect!!! This means that you could float food from a plate on the ground up to your hand then, without hesitation, float it all the way up to your mouth and eat it!
I used to have to awkwardly bend over for that to happen, now I can stand straight and confident.

I've been a huge fan of the Soul technology since the Spider Pen Pro. Having this tech in the Tarantula is amazing. Well worth the $75. There are more possibilities with the Tarantula 2 than ever before =)



After waiting months after this product was promised it finally arrived. I managed to practice the easiest effect two or three times before the "IT" broke. No problem....just watch the tutorial for how to resolve the situation. I am now into hour two of trying to restore the device back to normal operation and am still working on it!
I would recommend this for strolling magicians provided they have the following on hand for the reset:
--one or two hours between performances,
--table with white table cloth,
--1000 watt light,
--magnifying glass,
--tweezers and/or teeny tiny hands,
--a great deal of patience,
--privacy and that's all that you need to be back up and ready for your next performance!

I wish I could leave a review about audience reaction but alas I fear that I have another hour or two to spend before I can get the device back to working order so that I can resume practicing so that I can break the "IT" again and then repeat the whole process again.

Anyone want to buy a Tarantula 2 real cheap?



I do not know if Joseph is trying to be funny, or if he failed to pay attention to the tutorial dvd.

This item is fantastic! (Yes... imagine that in the 9th Doctors voice...)

I have been trying to get the hang of IT for the past year, and my previous ITR was very dodgy... I was scared to use it in fear of breaking it, because it DID take roughly 45 mins for me to repair the thread.

I have been playing with my Tarantula II since it arrived... really, really easy to get the hang of, if the thread does happen to break, it is, literally, just a couple of seconds to fix it.

I have, using this, lost my fear of the thread breaking... in fact, I even managed to repair the thread in front of someone after I broke the thread at the end of a levitation, just before I went to do another effect, without them even noticing.
(This was a home environment... not a working performance environment, however it was done so quickly, they did not even spot it)

My advice. Open the box, take your T2 out, to get a gander at your code, go watch the entire tutorial DVD BEFORE you play with it... because you will break it if you just jump right in.



I'm not a magician. I got this effect as part of a costume. And it works great. It'll take a little while to figure out the weight it can support & how to get it ready without people noticing. Once I was used to that, the next challange is dealing with people's reaction.



This is my 1st ITR and I love it! I've been using Mesika Loops for awhile and I thought those the best invention for thread work when they first came out, but they were limited. I never owned the Tarantual so I can't comment but the Tarantula II is the balls. The tutorial is very easy to understand an filmed well and he teaches some pretty good routines to get you started.
I see some reviews knocked the broken thread repair. I've been playing with this for 2 days and my thread broke 3 times. It took me about 3 minutes each time to repair it. Sure, you need a white table, bright light and good eyesight but c'mon - it's invisible thread! And IT will always be a bit of a pain in the ass to work with.
Great product.
