The Only Six Ways to Restore a Rope (Rope Eternal) by Dariel Fitzkee
Create your own custom versions of the popular cut and restored rope effect.

Dariel Fitzkee applied his world-renowned Trick Brain method to completely analyze and dissemble the Cut and Restored Rope effect into its basic components. Fitzkee's patient explanations and diagrams examine the six basic principles of all rope, cord and string effects, allowing the clever performer to pick and choose the methods that best fit his or her performing style to develop diabolically clever and unique rope routines.

Along the way, you'll learn the secrets to several past and present commercial rope effects that would cost several times the price of the ebook, if purchased individually. Best yet, the author starts from scratch with a method to randomly select various principles explained throughout the ebook, assembling them into a brand-new routine. You can do the same, once you've digested the contents of this informative and well-illustrated ebook.
