I agree FO is a nice little rope routine. I like how he shows you the moves he doesn't use as everyones tastes are different

Fiber Optics is a delightful routine to perform and to witness. If performed smoothly, it is very baffling for spectators and is definitely "eye candy". As pointed out by Bill and Dick, this is just a compilation of moves and sequences already well-known in the rope literature. But they are well-assembled into a routine with independent component parts. The beauty of it is that you can select or omit specific parts at your discretion without impairing the routine as a whole. If, for example, you do not want to show the small piece of rope for the "traveling ends" segments, simply leave it out.

I get so much mileage out of Fibre Optics. No one ever catches on to any ‘incongruencies’ because the changes happen so fast. Perhaps the most versatile magic trick: I perform it for kids, adults, close up, and on stage.

I love the DVD and the extensive ideas presented! I would recommend it highly to anyone doing any kind of rope magic. BUT... It makes me wonder that once you do any sequence where a short piece of rope is shown that you have given away the secret. Am I looking at this too much as a magician? Don't laymen see this to some extent?


I agree with this completely once you start showing the little piece of rope you've just turned a miracle in to a trick, that's not to say the dvd is bad far from it I think it's excellent and was well worth spending my money on.

As others have said use what you like and discard what you don't like Smile

I agree 100%. The speed at which this can be performed means the audience is always playing catch-up!

I had a go at taking the FO moves and create a connected and entertaining story around selected moves. It proved to be more challenging than I'd thought but I persisted and worked on it for almost a year. I'd like to think I now have a routine that is entertaining and magical. It starts with one long piece of rope and is cut in front of the audience to sidestep the problem of displaying the short bit. I'll be posting this on my website in the next few weeks and would like to get some feedback from other rope fanatics.

As an old, no, ancient geezer, who also likes "stuff with rope", I'll sure watch for it! Thanks!

I belive many peapole start to se the routine as juggling becuse they have become used to the moves and they only se the method. The first time my mom watched it she was blown away. You don't get reactions from that by juggling. If you do a routine of fanzy card flourishes peapole don't scream they look at it and say "huh that looks cool" if they see something they cannot explain then they scream.

For those who may have followed this thread from the beginning, I have finally found a way to "explain" my "Norwegian YoYo, and am now communicating with Neal Austin (Sealegs).

Up to now, I have only shared it with friends when we were having a "session". Except for Gene Anderson, those friends have now passed away. I'm 86. I don't want the bit to be lost. Hopefully, Neal will be able to use it, and, perhaps, someday, share it.
