This is the one you've been waiting for. It's the first invisible thread reel designed by the Master of Levitations, Steve Fearson. And it's unlike anything you've seen before.
The Vectra Cobra Electronic Invisible Thread Reel is the first electronic reel designed specifically with the power of Vectra™ in mind.
The Cobra is strong enough to harness the full power of Vectra, taking it to it's limit without breaking the thread. And it works with Original Vectra thread AND Vectra X2!

The Cobra was used in this video to move a skateboard from nearly 30 feet away!
What could you do with a device that can release and retract up to 40 feet of the legendary Vectra Invisible Thread? The Vectra Cobra Reel can do exactly that.
Release huge lengths of the powerful Vectra thread and the Cobra retrieves it for you, perfectly coiled and ready to strike again and again.
COMPACT AND STEALTHY - The Cobra is about the size of a pack of gum and can hide in a card box, cigarette pack or an Altoids container with room to spare. This means you can actually perform with the reel in your hands and no one will suspect a thing!
Take a mint from a tin and levitate it into your mouth. Float a cigarette from a box or a card from a card case. The Cobra can be hidden inside all of them... HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT!
AUTOMATIC LOCKING - With a Thread Bullet at it's core, the Cobra can be set to release a predetermined length of thread and then stop, automatically locking and allowing you to perform with the preset length under NO TENSION. This gives you maximum control during your performance.
The reel can then be activated to secretly retrieve your length of thread, while remembering it's locking position for the next performance.
This device does everything you've come to expect from a reel and more. But there's something else the Cobra can do that puts it in a class by itself.
THE COBRA IS MODULAR AND EXPANDABLE - The device has no built-in switch, instead it has a port. Switches are interchangeable giving you multiple options for activation and operation depending on your performance needs. Activate the reel with the push of a button, the wave of a hand or with no perceivable movement at all. It's up to you!
The Vectra Cobra offers you complete control during a performance by allowing you to switch it on and off secretly and precisely using a variety of modules or switches.
MODULE #1 - Simple On / Off Switch
This switch plugs into the Cobra and allows you to activate it with the push of a button. You can use this switch to discreetly reel in thread after a performance and it comes in handy when setting up the reel or loading it with different thread.
MODULE #2 - Press-On / Press-Off Switch
This switch allows you to work in "always on" mode, turning your Cobra into a standard thread reel. The thread will always be under tension, ready to retract into the reel at any time. You can do all the routines you would normally perform with a traditional reel.
MODULE #3 - Gravity Tilt Switch
This switch can be plugged into the side of the Cobra and will allow you to activate and deactivate the motor by tilting the reel. It's the same type of switch that's used in a mobile device or tablet to detect which way the screen is being held. This tiny, sensitive switch is easy to activate with no visible button to worry about. You can use this when the reel is concealed in a box or tin and activate it with an imperceptible tilt.
All three switches can also be used remotely by attaching the simple extension wire. For example, the Mercury switch could be attached to your arm while the reel remains hidden in a pocket. In this way you can precisely control the activation of the reel with empty hands.
BONUS MODULE - The Sidewinder
This ingenious module allows you to use the Cobra with no pockets, short sleeves and empty hands... and still maintain complete control over the device, turning it off and on at ease with no suspicious moves. This little guy is going to BLOW YOU AWAY, you'll really feel like Spiderman when you're using this rig!
The Vectra Cobra is able to evolve and adapt to meet your every need. The base unit and the "stock" switches can be used in endless ways and that's just the beginning. Since the reel is modular there is no limit to what we can achieve with it in regards to increasing it's functionality.
Here's a taste of what we have in store for 2015!
Digital timer module. Set the reel to activate at a predetermined time.
RF remote control module. Control your reel from across the room.
In-line tension control. Dial in the tension you desire.
The design makes it easy to hack the device and create your own modules and switches. Toe switches, motion switches and the like can all be easily adapted to fit your device. Several ideas are included.
Besides Floating Candy, Cards and Cigarettes you will learn how to...
Move objects from up to 40 feet away! (Example video)
Cause bills, silks and more to slither across the room and rise to your fingertips!
Perform a super-clean vanish that will leave them scratching their heads!
