Cute little item. It is much easier to handle than seperating those single strands of the other stuff we all usually get. The thread looks a little thicker but still works in low light on close up or standing back from audience. I don't think the thing can be reloaded with new thread (I'd hate to try) but the thread is pretty tough. Takes a tiny bit of playing with to get comfortable with but nice prop for HOVER CARD, LEVITATIONS, etc. Well worth the money if you got a couple of bucks to invest.
