Topic: Ropes in the UK
Message: Posted by: mindacrossrhino (Jul 13, 2017 04:15AM)
Hi all

I can see this question has been asked several times in the past, however I have been unable to find an answer that caters to a UK audience (may just be my poor searching skills). I can find many sources of magician's rope in the UK, however would like to know what rope people would recommend (sourced from the UK).

To help narrow down what I am after, I am putting together a 'one' rope routine based primarily on Fiber Optics, and some of Daryl's work and think I am after something around 10mm of thickness. Ideally the rope would be white, though not having handled many different types can't say whether I prefer cored or not at this stage.

Many thanks
Simon

I use Castle Cord which I think is now only available from magiciansrope.co.uk. This is the best rope I have found in the UK for fiber optic etc.

PropDog has the largest variety of magician's rope I have so far found in the UK. They sell various of the BTC ropes, which I believe were favoured by Daryl and Mac King, make their own, and sell a couple of other brands. Great shop as well if you're ever in the area; good way to try out a few different types of rope at the same time.

We do ship to UK, but it is a bit expensive for the shipping. If PropDog sells BTC, then that's your best bet.

Many thanks to dlprice and dbaronian for your replies, have purchased some castle cord as suggested above now, however will check out PropDog when I next need to purchase some.

Kind regards

PropDog items are very good I have a fake lemon and lime for the chop cup. Even the smell is a+.
