Topic: Extra thick, soft rope?
Message: Posted by: daffydoug (Jul 12, 2017 02:16PM)
I'm working on an escape artist show, with a little help from the great Dan Harlan.

Dan does his show with a truly THICK rope. Looks to be 3/4 of an inch to even an inch thick, yet still soft and plyable as in the standard cotton magicians rope.

I can't find it in my hardware store. Their rope is STIFF. That won't work!

Can anyone tell me a source where I can find this ultra thick, yet soft rope?

Bronian trading company sells very thick rope. Without the core it is very soft

Yep, the BTC (link above) is the best source. It's the closest to the rope I used to use, but have never been able to find again. The search continues.

Dan, where did you get the original rope?

Mike, which of the Barian products on that page would you recommend?

I bought it in a magic shop somewhere in Oklahoma about 15 years ago. Can't remember exactly where.

On the BTC site, I get:
https://www.baroniantrading.com/product-page/btc4-15mm-with-no-core

It's the largest diameter available.

I always use BTC 4. It's a nice thick and soft rope. Looks great on stage.

I searched for extra soft rope on e-bay and it took me to bondage rope. I took a chance and it was great for all types of rope tricks. all different colors as well

I like the feel of the Baronian rope, I do wish it was bright white though.
