The End of My Rope
In stock - very few available.
From the creator of The 100th Monkey comes a new, versatile and incredibly visual method for rope magic! The magician coils a rope, and has a spectator cut through all the strands - the magician then throws the many pieces and they join in the air! The rope is never covered or switched and it can be examined before and after the effect!
The End-of-my-Rope Trick is a stunning stand-alone trick, but it's also the perfect climax for a variety of other rope routines. Chris (an award-winning screenwriter) has found a way to raise the stakes on classic rope routines while staying true to the original premise. This is a game-changer!
Can be used with a myriad of materials - from chain links to mouth coils - and with a variety of effects. It makes a perfect finish for a ring-on-string routine: you can thread a string through a ring four times then pull it right off! There are variations that require gimmicks and others that are entirely impromptu.
The End-of-my-Rope trick is not self-working, but it's not difficult. It's in the easy to medium range, depending on the variation you choose. A person with no sleight-of-hand chops can do some variations with just a few hours of practice.
It's a great effect and method and I've never seen anything like it before!Daryl
I can't believe you fooled me so hard that I'm putting down my cards to learn a rope trick!Jon Armstrong
Wow! Amazing! I've been working on the multiple cut rope plot for several years and that first performance with the rope tied around the wrists both completely fooled AND excited me!Bill Abbott
The cutting is really convincing, which is essential for a strong effect, and the restoration is as visual and impressive as Anderson's flash restoration in his newspaper tear.Tom Stone

Customer reviews for The End of My Rope
This is a great effect, the visual is perfect and I was hoping to work it into my regular rope routine, but it's not quite as practical as the average rope routine. Whereas much rope magic just uses the ropes involved, this requires stealing in and ditching out a special one-use gimmick to show all the strands being cut. As such it's really only suited for one-off platform type magic, not closeup and walk around.
One alternative handling on the DVD uses a long paper streamer and this is in my opinion a much better application of the method, making it easier to carry more of the necessary bits and also less bulky & complicated to ring in/out.

Andrew asks: Can this trick me done with two Magicians? Having the rope tied on, one hand of each of the magicians?
- 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: With some choreography, it is possible to have two magicians perform this effect. It is not taught that way on the instructions so you'll have to work it out with the other magician.
