After several delays, the Spider Pen Pro was finally been released by Yigal Mesika, and we are sending them out to everyone who has pre-ordered. The Pen has to be one of the most hotly anticipated releases in many years, with magicians all over the world, reserving them months in advance and discussion forums going crazy about what the new electronic ITR Pen will feature.
Magicians researching patent applications from Yigal suggested it would have some type of ‘toe switch’ but that turned out to be a red herring. The Pens are finally here and the first reviews in the magic community seem to be glowing with praise for the device:
I received mine this weekend and have had a chance to play with it. It is amazing! In my opinion Yigal has turned the Spider Pen into a tool that is as practical as Loops. The automatic shut off is a dream come true as I used to unscrew the battery on the old spider pen to keep it from draining. Now SP pro is just ready all the time with a stronger AAA battery. The tension is tight and steady, the body and clip of the pen will last a very long time and if the thread breaks, its easy to fix. The dvd is well produced and teaches some very nice handlings for floating bills, though I will be using this primarily for subtle PK effects. This is the perfect ITR! It was well worth the wait.

The Spider Pens have arrived in the shop and the MoM team called in extra staff to get them all out to customers as fast as possible.
ITR’s have always been a love hate topic with magicians. The magic tricks possible with them are stunning, but using one can be a real pain, and many magicians are put off by the unreliable nature of the gimmick. The original spider pen added new features never before seen in an ITR device, but the plastic casing and small batteries caused many to stop using it. Much of the popularity of Spider Pen Pro is the addition of new soul technology to improve this many times over and the use of a metal pen using normal batteries. It’s nice to see Yigal developing the device to include the latest advances is tech, as well as building in a vastly improved build quality.
