Ropes, Ribbons, Strings & Reels

Today rubber bands are very popular and allow strong and effective illusions. David Copperfield popularized the "Crazy Man Handcuffs". I have consistently and repeatedly fooled friends with this little gem. The classic cut and restored string continues to be popular. A rope is a very common object. If you can do something magical with it, you have won your audience over.

You will also find here routines with invisible threads and loops.

Bands of Gold by (Benny) Ben Harris
"Ben's Band Book is some of the best band and card magic ever. Some could be plucked out and used as single trick downloads. As with every Ben Harris ebook of wonder, it's beautifully laid out with lots of photos to help you along. Highly recommended. ***** 5/5 Stars" - Jamie Daws
The opening trick in this gorgeous ebook is just cool. A mini bet in which 2 bands are shown around the card case width ways. One will win the spectator $100 and the other one will win the magician $100. One is selected by the spectator without equivoque. Of course it's just a normal band. The other is removed and there...

Albenice

Reel Magic by AlbeniceA reel is a tool which enables many surprising effects: Cards will rise, silks will come to life, small items will vanish, and more.

Albenice reveals his famous Serpent Silk, wherein a scarf, twisted rope fashion and tied in a knot visibly unties itself. More than 25 different effects are described, including penetrations, color changes, knot effects, and much more.

Also in the Addenda will be found the complete manuscript of "The Penetrable Silk" by Spalding, which was originally published in The Sphinx in the form of a series of articles. Spalding independently developed a whole series of penetration...

Aldo Colombini

Professor's Math by Aldo ColombiniHere’s a unique handling for the “Professor’s Nightmare” rope routine that you’ll use in your act.

WHAT THE AUDIENCE SEES:

The magician cuts a length of rope into three pieces of different lengths; small, medium and long. The three pieces are stretched until they appear to be all the same length. The three pieces of rope are then tied together. The knots vanish and apparently the rope is fully restored. Until now the effect is a standard one. But wait…here comes the incredible finale! One knot is magically thrown back onto the rope then jumps away leaving the rope completely...

Aldo Colombini

Rope Confection by Aldo ColombiniAfter Aldo's success with his first DVD on rope, Roped In, by popular demand here’s another DVD with ten new rope routines. All of them use regular rope (no gimmicks, no magnets, etc).
  • CUTTING A ROPE IN THREE (Marconick): A piece of rope is cut into three pieces and it is immediately restored. Clever method.
  • RING FROM ROPE (Allan Lambie): You tie a ring in the middle of a rope. You pull on the ring and it becomes free but it leaves the knot on the rope.
  • THE COMPUTERISED ROPES (Ronald Dayton): The routine is a rope presentation of the famous three and a half gag with cards. The effect...

Chris Wasshuber

The Endless Chain Prop by Chris WasshuberThis is the ideal prop for the Loopy Loop, Figure Eight, Chain Swindle, or Pricking the Garter con game. (It is also ideal for any chain and ring or chain and hoop routine.) The length, size of balls, and material significantly contribute to the visual deception of this entertaining swindle.

It is an endless nickle plated steel ball chain without any clasp for opening. Total length is 60 inches (1.5 meter) and the balls diameter is 3/16 of an inch (4.5 mm). One of the valuable properties of this ball chain is that it can never get twisted, because each ball freely rotates. The loop is therefore...

Daryl Easton

Ring, Rope and Wand by Daryl EastonThis is a wonderfully visual and very simple routine. No gimmicks required. One simple move does the trick.

All you need is a wand, stick or pencil, a piece of rope and a borrowed finger ring. You ask two spectators to assist you. Rope, ring and wand are examined. Then the ring is fairly and openly put on the center of the rope. The magician covers the ring with his hand, each spectator holds with one hand an end of the rope and with the other hand an end of the wand. The ring magically jumps from the rope onto the wand. Voila!

Simple to perform and suitable for the beginner.

Houdini Rubber Band by Dave ArchMost magicians are aware of the classic "Jumping Rubber Band Trick." However, here's a script and easy method for a full story routine about the exploits and escapades of that world famous escape artist Harry Houdini who in this case completely disappears from your fingers and reappears where least expected. Included with this routine is the more deceptive technique where the rubber band is "set" using only one hand rather than the customary two-handed "get ready."

Devin Knight

Test-Conditions Ring Penetration by Devin KnightMagic literature contains a myriad of methods for doing ring on string effects. Many of these involve clever sleights or duplicate rings. The cool thing about this method is that it does not use any gimmicked cord, duplicate rings or any type of sleights. It can even be done with a borrowed ring. The incredible thing about this method is that it is done under test conditions with your wrists tied behind your back!

The performer's wrists are tied behind his back using an examined three-foot piece of string or cord. The ends of the cord are tied to each of the performer's wrists. A spectator...

Sprung: slinky toy through body by Devin KnightThis trick was on the market about 10 years ago. If you have one and no directions, here are the original directions. If you would like to make this up, you can make it from a metal slinky you can buy in most toy stores. Very easy to make, and complete directions on how to gimmick a Slinky are included.

Just when you thought every possible penetration effect had been invented, comes this new novel idea. Magician patters that when he was a small child he couldn't afford to buy magic props, hence he did magic with his toys. He brings out a regular Slinky toy and shows it to be the toy we all...
