Ungimmicked Linking Ropes by Devin Knight

This is the linking ropes on steroids. Imagine doing the linking ropes for real. I mean with three ungimmicked pieces of rope. NO MAGNETS, NO ROPE SNAPS, RUBBER CEMENT, HOOKS, OR FALSE COUNTS WITH THE LOOPS. Ropes actually link for real, no optical illusion that the ropes appear to be linked. Only three pieces of examined rope are used. No switches or extra hidden pieces of rope. Can be done in short sleeves, under any conditions. NO PULLS OR GIMMICKS OF ANY KIND. Learn it in just a few minutes. This is a new and improved revised handling by Devin Knight.

EFFECT: The performer (that's you)...

Devin Knight
Sprung: slinky toy through body by Devin Knight

This 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...

Test-Conditions Ring Penetration by Devin Knight

Magic 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...

They pack small and play big, are great for teaching in workshops and offer a different selection of effects to elastic bands.

Lewis Ganson
Rink's Rope and Ring Penetrations by Lewis Ganson

This profusely illustrated booklet. with 66 nice clear drawings, teaches you a complete and seemingly impossible rope and ring routine from Rink. The name of Rink of Holland is tied to many wonderful tricks and routines.

This Ganson description is, as always, a masterpiece and tells all you need to know to fool your audience with a simple piece of rope (with a little preparation) and a ring.

From the introduction

This series of penetrations was built up over a long period of time. The main theme is the linking and unlinking of a solid ring onto a piece of rope, the ends of which have...

Ken de Courcy
Rink Goes Loop La-La by Ken de Courcy

From the introduction:

"Rink (van Rinkhuyzen) of Holland has a keen trick brain. Like most of the great magical inventors, he individualises every effect he obtains and, if he likes it, he continues to work on it. The result; a string of often unbelievable variations that astounds everyone, including the man who invented it.

Some time ago, Supreme marketed Tommy Talbot's "Loop La-La", an amusing little thing with two unfaked rope loops. As it stood, it was basically a compere gag. It could be repeated over and over again, but there was no build-up, and no end.

Rink took "Loop La-La"...

Jump-O-Ring by Mats G. Kjellstrom

Once upon a time I saw a magician do a routine with three ropes hanging from a stick. At the end of one rope there was a silk. He made the silk to magically jump between the ropes. This was amazing. I wanted to do this, but how? Then I invented this routine that's very impressive. Charles Bertram's old routine "Here, There and Everywhere" has the same effect but the method is very different, my method has the big advantage that you can let the spectator check the rope and knots out before the magic happens! Which makes this an impossible illusion. One nice aspect of Jump-O-Ring is that you can...

Ulysses Frederick Grant
The Fastest Rope in the West by Ulysses Frederick Grant

This routine has multiple effects. You begin with a length of rope...showing it freely. Instantly a knot appears on one end. You clearly untie it, but a moment later another knot appears. You clearly untie it again but...yes you are right...another knot appears. You repeat this effect again and again. At the end you have snapped five knots in all.

Now you borrow a finger ring and execute Grant's "Poor Man's Monkey Bar" in which you tie three knots on the rope with the ring knotted to the one on the right. Then you put the rope behind your back and pretend that the ring "magically" pass...

Everyone has seen the booth where they sell the cheap ties be it a pushcart, folding suitcase, or a department store counter.

Eric C. Lewis
Eric Lewis' Rope Routine by Eric C. Lewis

This is the famous perfected rope routine - three consecutive cuts and restorations - devised by that West Coast Magician, Eric Lewis. Mr. Lewis was one of the busiest magicians in England before he moved to Los Angeles. There he has been very busy editing the Bamberg books of magic, working at the Magic Castle and doing lectures. The Triple Cut Rope Routine uses a number of original and unorthodox moves that end up in a very smooth and convincing trick. A big hit in the Magic Castle and on lecture tours, where Eric has shown it to the most sophisticated and best informed of the magicians. ...

42 Amazing Tricks and Stunts with Rope by Sam Dalal

You can carry a piece (or more) of rope in your pocket, and use it to perform some amazing magic for an intimate audience of a couple of spectators, or on a stage for an audience of hundreds. There are hundreds of tricks you can perform with a piece of rope. The most famous of these is the Cut & Restored Rope trick, where a piece of rope is cut into two or more pieces, and magically restored.

But there are many others, where knots magically appear or vanish from a length of rope, rings or handkerchiefs penetrate through a length of rope, or a rope penetrates through your knee or neck. There...
