Vectra Cobra G2 Electronic Invisible Thread Reel


This item is temporarily unavailable for purchase.

The best reel on the planet just got better. Introducing the next generation, the Vectra Cobra G2. The G2 features a new motor that runs smooth, strong and SILENT! It's smooth-as-silk release minimizes bouncing and a SLOWER, steady retraction produces the most natural levitations EVER! It also sports a new self-locking cover, allowing for easier access and an even FASTER reset than the original Cobra!

The Vectra Cobra Electronic Invisible Thread Reel is the first electronic reel designed by the Master of Levitations Steve Fearson, specifically with the power of Vectra™ in mind.  The Cobra G2 is the 2nd Generation of this amazing device.

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 right out of the box.

Watch full screen in HD or on youtube.

What could you do with a device that can release and retract nearly 50 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.  

ImageCOMPACT 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 - On / Off Pressure Switch
This switch plugs into the Cobra and allows you to activate it with the slightest touch.  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 - Always On (ITR Mode) 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 regard to increasing it's functionality.

The Cobra thread reel g2 is exactly as advertised. Well made and extremely easy to reset if you break the thread ( which will rarely happen). It's quiet and a breeze to set up. I have the Titan thread reel but the Cobra produces true magic. Smooth & reliable. I don't know if I ever got a product that performed EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED. Extremely happy.

I found the cobra very easy to setup and use. It's a clever little device that's silent and easy to reset when string breaks. Best used with light objects like bills, paper and diamond silks. Ingenious gimmick thanks

I have 3 of the Vectra Cobras. They work well in my show routines, allowing effects to respond to my command on stage or at shows. The Cobra is a special way to increase your entertaining to your maximum form. It allows my creative thought to excel in so many ways with out of the box thinking. When Steve completes production of the remote for this device I will also use it to enhance my routine.

Have been chemical weapons bomb disposal tech for 40 yrs. I have so much incredible fun astonishing the minds of my fellow team mates..(who are incredibly intelligent!) with the Cobra...I mean I can really mess with them, and the natives in the jungle.. it is so hard not to break out in hysterical laughter when I use it on them. They are really not sure about me now, however I have gained tremendous respect,....hahahahaha ! Thoroughly recommend the Cobra reel for everyone. Mike G.

Thank you so much for sharing this device to the magic community more specifically to us. This device is all I need for a reel, I have both of the sp and spp but I don't really use them At All, but this Cobra I know for sure that I'm going to be using it a lot and "I'm not gonna leave home without it". This device is a BOMB!

THIS. IS. BRILLIANT. I have had a few electronic ITR's in my time, but this one takes the game to the next level. Small, compact, lightweight and diverse. What more can one ask for? It is ridiculously easy to change the thread on (and it uses Bullets, so is even more customisable) and it has a selection of switches as well, for all sorts of situations! I really cannot wait for the other modules to come out for it!

I received this few weeks ago & have had fun playing with it. Put it thru some personal tests with flying colors ! I love how compact & easy it is to reset broken thread & be back up & running ! & like the easy way I can switch from Vectra to stage Vectra in a snap ! The best thing other than easy reset is the modular trigger system & the side winder is great & simple to wear & use. The Vectra Cobra has surpassed my expectations, compared to the usual electronic IT's on the market. Priced better than other Electronic IT IMO & I feel I have the best bang for my buck as well as a unique modular IT system. I can tell this isn't some thingy-mabob just made & plopped on the market, but a very well thought out creation & personally tested by the man well known in the world of creative IT systems !! Looking forward to the remote trigger coming up hopefully soon ! With the Vectra Cobra, thread bullets & spare Vectra thread for life time of refills I have everything I need in IT now !!

I bought Vectra Cobra and found it to be very helpful in my work. I now have a complete WORKING routine with it and the Cobra is great for my show. I have found that the support I have needed was super and highly suggest you check out EMAGIC for some of your pro needs. For those that know me. Kosmyk
