Deck TR what exactly is it?
Deck TR is a programmable invisible
thread reel cleverly disguised within a playing card box! What's more natural
for a magician than to have a deck of cards on them? Who would ever suspect that
a deck of cards or card box has anything to do with the magician causing objects
to float or move? Well, Deck TR can do just that! Deck TR is your personal
assistant in a box! Deck TR looks just like a real deck of cards, so there's no
need to hide this device from your spectators. You can carry it in your pocket,
place it on a shelf or even set it right out in the open on a table! Deck TR is
a professional magicians tool. As seen in the Video Demo above, Deck TR can
float objects, fly objects, move objects, animate objects and do anything that a
normal thread reel can do and MUCH more!
Key Components of Deck
3 Different Performance Modes
Deck TR has 3 separate
performance modes. First, Deck TR is programmable, you can record a program and
play it back when you are ready. Program mode can also be "paused" and started
back up where it stopped. Second, you can use your Deck TR to animate objects
with "live" mode. Live mode allows you to operate the motor remotely on and off
as you press the button on the wireless Remote. The Third mode is "ITR" mode
which allows you to use the unit as a regular IT reel! You do not need a
computer to program your Deck TR. Also, Programming is not difficult or
confusing, if you can press a button and turn a wheel, you can program your Deck
Precision Speed Control
Deck TR has a built in Precision Speed
Control! This allows the user to define their own precise speed according to the
type of thread being used! No more "one size fits all" thread control. Now you
are in control!
Perfect Tension Technology
The Deck TR controller
has what we like to call Perfect Tension Technology. This is a first when it
comes to electronic invisible thread reels. What is perfect tension technology?
In a nutshell this means normally when you are using electronic invisible thread
reels, the biggest drawback is the batteries they use. Some of them use AAA
batteries and there's a few out there that use watch style batteries. The
drawback to this is that your thread tension always changes depending on battery
life. If you put a fresh battery in your unit it will work very well for a
little amount of time and then slowly, as the battery begins to drain its power,
the tension changes and becomes much weaker. This dramatically affects your
invisible thread animations. With perfect tension technology this problem has
been eliminated. Each Deck TR unit has a built in computer that insures that the
motor always gets the same power. Meaning that your thread tension will always
be perfect regardless of battery life! This is quantum leaps ahead of all
electronic invisible thread reels!
Deck TR uses the
latest LiPo battery technology! Your Deck TR will come with 2 rechargeable LiPo
Batteries. What does this mean for you? Well, this means that you no longer need
to purchase countless batteries only to use them and throw them away! LiPo
batteries can be recharged many many times and each charge gives you several
performances! You can even recharge your LiPo batteries using the built in
charger in your Deck TR!
Your Deck TR can
connect to your computer using the USB cord that comes with your unit. This
allows you to save your programs from your Deck TR to your computer! You can
reload your programs as you need them and even email them to your friends! (this
feature may not work on some older computers)
Remote Activation Deck TR
comes complete with a wireless RF key chain style remote that gives you three
functions; the ability to activate the program at any time in your routine,
ability to start and stop your programs, and the ability to activate invisible
thread reel mode. The remote also enables you to work the motor live. Press the
button and the motor activates as long as you hold down the button!
Strong Invisible Thread
Each Deck TR comes with 200 yards of pre-stripped
Super Strong Invisible Thread! This thread is great for many animations, I use
this same thread in my Ultra Hank. Because the Deck TR has speed control, it can
use many different kinds of invisible thread, such as James George's "Kevlar"
thread or Steve Fearson's "Vectra" thread and many others!
Your Deck TR comes with a Bonus Toe Switch Adaptor Kit! This kit
allows you to adapt your Remote to a Toe Switch for hands free control and then
change it back to a regular Remote whenever you want!

So if you ask me now what I wish
for in a close up invisible thread reel My answer is, I don't have to wish. I
already have the DECK-TR!
