This is not an ITR or I.T.R. as manufactured by Sorcery Manufacturing. Like all Thread Reels, this clever device stores the thread safely until needed, without threat of tangling. Then, simply withdraw what you need and perform the effect you desire. It automatically retracts the thread when the effect is completed. Thread won't become brittle over time.

I know I can trust this type of reel. Maybe it is because, as it does not look as promising. I never use it to walk away from the anchor. I limit the use to hooking it within the sleeve of a short sleeve shirt, and anchoring the thread to a safety pin within the other sleeve (Michael Ammar shows this hookup using elastic thread in his videos). The way I use it allows me to catch the line with my thumbs, and float things in front of me.
When I am done, I just release the line, and it returns to its original place in front of my chest, where it is ready for the next performance. The thread can also be caught between the fingers of both hands to move objects on a table. And all you have to do is release the line, it returns to its original position, and your hands are free of any thread. When you want to use your PK powers again, all you need is to catch the thread again. You may go to the bathroom, watch your hands, or do anything without fear of breaking the thread, and be ready to demonstrate your mysterious powers at any time. You cannot do that with a motorized reel, because the batteries would die after some time, if you keep it on for ever. On the other hand, you may carry this reel in the above mentioned set up all day, and it will always be ready to work reliably and beautifully. – Wilhelm Eberhard
This is a must have if you want something that is both affortable and effective. This is ideal for the begginer to professional magicians. – Nick Blackburn
Hello, everyone- I had an old reel I had used for a long time, and I gave a lot of my stuff away to a young fellow in the boy scouts to entertain his friends and learn more about magic; I recently decided to order some more magic tricks, and one of those purchases was the Indian thread reel. Let me say that if you are a beginner, you may find ITR's a little tricky, but this devices works GREAT! It was the right size, too....just big enough to handle, small enough to conceal; I was doing the old 'floating dollar bill' trick within about 1 minute of getting it out of the package. Again, if you have not had a lot of experience with IT or ITR's, it is well worth it to practice with this type of ITR at small distances at first, about 3 feet away from the anchor...once you get the 'feel' for the thread strength, you become less likely to break the thread; I recommend buying extra IT and magic-wax if you have little experience, or, like me, have not done magic in a bit...once you get a little mastery of the Indian Thread Reel, you will even find yourself INVENTING new tricks! (I am working a little floating 'Grail' trick for my buds at the SCA); Patience, practice and a little time make this item a good investment-
