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.

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...

Devin Knight

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...

Devin Knight

Ungimmicked Linking Ropes by Devin KnightThis 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

Pirate Torture Illusion by Devin KnightThis is not your typical grandma's (ala Grandma's necklace) version of rope through body. Instead, this is ropes through body on steroids. It uses no gimmick rope either and everything can be examined. This is an illusion that fits into a briefcase and yet fills the stage with three spectators and yourself. Talk about playing big and packing small, this is the ultimate. It's based on an historical fact that pirates use to torture people for both information and for the entertainment of the crew. This is a historical fact that makes this version of the trick not only logical, but historically...

Doan

Bandual by Doan
"WTF, some witchcraft?? I can't figure it out. Amazing!!" - Mario Tarasini
My name is Doan and here is a new effect with rubber bands. Imagine you just have one rubber band which you instantly turn into two rubber bands. A flash duplication of a rubber band. Everything is done in front of your spectator's eyes. Or, you can also do a very cool and visual rubber band color change effect.
  • No gimmick used
  • Do with any size (within reason) rubber band
  • Watch your angles. This looks great from certain directions, but you are exposed from others. Certainly not a trick to be done surrounded. ...

Eric C. Lewis

Eric Lewis' Rope Routine by Eric C. LewisThis is the famous perfected rope routine - three consecutive cuts and restorations - devised by that West Coast Magician, Eric Lewis.

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. ...

Harry Houdini

Magical Rope Ties and Escapes by Harry HoudiniThis is one of the best books by Houdini, because here he writes about something he really knows a lot about. With many of his escapes he had to be very familiar with the knots he was tied up. This book has many good illustrations and several photos where Houdini himself demonstrates certain ties. It is a great collector item as well as source of information. If you can only buy one book by Houdini, by this one.

Jean Hugard

Sealed Mysteries of Pocket Magic by Jean HugardJean Hugard describes in this booklet a complete routine consisting of 6 effects. He starts with a card trick, the piano card trick, and continues with a series of rope effects: production of a rope six feet long; doubling the rope; trick with two ropes; triple cut and restored rope; comedy explanation of vanishing knots.

The value of this booklet is in the routining itself. Hugard has used this routine many times with great success. The effects follow in a logical succession each building on the other.

John Alborough

Mainly Manipulative Magic by John AlboroughFrom the introduction by Lewis Ganson:
Seeing the late Edward Victor on stage at the now defunct Metropolitan Theatre in Edgware Road, London, when John was a small boy, started his interest in magic. Later he became enamoured with the manipulative magic of Geoffrey Buckingham, so it is not surprising that Victor's expert thimble magic and Buckingham’s excellent manipulation of billiard balls, should have had a marked influence on the type of magic John performs. Having met and enjoyed the confidence of these two magicians and studied their books, he built his own act. Certainly the Victor / Buckingham influence is there...

Ken de Courcy

Rink Goes Loop La-La by Ken de CourcyFrom 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"...
