Hi Gang!

If you folks haven't had the chance to check out Dany Baronian's BTC3 Rope, than you don't know what you are missing!

I do a cut & restored rope routine in almost every show during my 6 month Fair Season each year, and have tried a LOT of different ropes over the last 28 years!

Dany's BTC3 rope is with out a doubt the BEST Rope that I have EVER USED!!! BAR NONE!!! :thumbsup:

Do yourself a favor and check it out at: http://www.BaronianTrading.com/Ropes.html

Please note that I am in no way associated with Dany exept for the fact that I am a VERY Satisfied Customer!

Thanks Frank,I'll order some soon!!!
Message: Posted by: magicmanfrank (Apr 20, 2011 10:05PM)
You WON'T be dissapointed!

By the way the BTC3 is a 10mm rope that is PRE-CORED!

I prefer the rope cored, as it make the rope so much more supple and easy to work with in my opinion!

Hi Frank,

I've used Dany's rope for a couple years and love it as well. I use the rope with the core, rather than the pre-cored rope (I don't usually perform a cut-n-restored rope routine).

Regards, Steve

Danny sells it to me as well, and I supply my clients and students with it. The rope matches my Linking ropes so it is perfect for me.

Hi guys,
I haven't been on the Café' for a while and I just saw this thread...Thanks Frank.
For those of you that don't know me yet, I'm "the rope guy" as they call me. I sell magicians rope & high leverage shears...thats it...for now. I got into this several years ago and have been working to expand the line, its a process...so please be patient. I sell quality rope at great prices, I ship worldwide and have an international customer base as well as US. I've sold to high profile magicians as well as those just starting. It's a small operation that is growing from my garage. You only deal with me, there's no other person that handles orders or questions....just me...Dany...the rope guy.

For now I only have the 4 ropes listed on my website, check for details at http://www.BaronianTrading.com. I also sell THE BEST shears for these ropes, don't take MY word for it, ask anyone on this Café that has bought them from me...or just get a pair and see for yourself. You'll only have to buy them once..unless you want a back up in case you lose it.

If you have any questions, please email me directly at dany@baroniantrading.com as I don't get on the Café as much as I did before.

Thank you

I thought I'd just add in my 2 cents worth here... Recently just bought my ropes from Dany and I must say, if you're looking at very soft pliant cotton ropes to work with, his are excellent. Dany's also replied my emails very promptly and did a followup to see if everything was okay! Pretty good service I'd say. The only grouse if I can so put it that way, is that it was quite dusty when it arrived here at Singapore, and as you know, dust and white ropes don't go together well!
Message: Posted by: dbaronian (Aug 1, 2011 11:38PM)
Just to make the last post clear...the ropes come in spools and have a clear plastic wrap on it, then the spool is also in a plastic bag, and finally it is in a box. Not exactly sure how the ropes would be dusty...but I can't see it and I can't justify debating with Ade.

Posted: Aug 2, 2011 12:39am
Hello Everyone,

First of all...I would like to thank all of you for your business and continued support, without you I would be at the end of the rope.

I wanted to inform you that I will be restocking inventory soon and wanted to know if any of you need to stock rope in large amounts (10+). Please let me know the type of ropes you need and the quantities. I do have rope now, but the inventory I have is limited and dwindling. Special pricing is available if you would like to place a special order, but I will not be able to send you the ropes until I have enough in stock (depending on the amount you order). If I do not have the amount that you currently need, I can take a deposit and order it along with my inventory from my factory. If I have confused you...please email me directly or send a PM.

I buy from Danny and resell it to my clients in smaller rolls. I like it because the 10mm precored is only sleightly smaller than the linking ropes I sell in my Dances with rope routine. That continuity serves me well.

Like Frank and many others, I've been using Danys rope since his first appearance at the Castle Swap Meet...and those scissors that he mentions are the best I've ever owned. I like to keep a full spool of his rope in reserve, and it's time to load up again. His low prices means that you don't have to 'cheat' your audience on rope...use the proper amount without worrying about the cost.

See you at the Swap, Dany!

Magic Castle Swap Meet this week. I'll be there again...same place (Palace). I'm not 100% certain yet, but this MAY be my last time there. I've come to a point where I have multiple businesses and not sure if I may continue doing this. For those of you "reading between the lines"....don't get your hopes up too fast....I haven't decided yet.

Message: Posted by: Kaliix (Nov 3, 2011 05:32PM)
Wow, there is a lot of love for some rope coming from this thread. That's nice to see. $50 a spool is a good price if the rope is great but it is also an awful lot of money for a product that I can't hold.

I'd be willing to pay the money but I'm need some help getting an idea as to what kind of rope this is. Soooooooo... I am very familiar with the Camirand Elite Magicians Rope. This stuff looks fairly similar. How does this rope match up with the Camirand rope?

Is it close?

Pretty much exactly the same?

Better (excluding price)?

Any help/info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Neal Preta's Super Rope is the absolute best I have ever used He also has a product called super string, more of a 1/8 " braided cord.

Message: Posted by: magicians (Nov 4, 2011 08:09PM)
Th best rope of late should be diamond braided, cotton over cotton. As white as possible.
-------------
I like Baronian bct-10 but it is not as white as some.
----------
I sell Baronian and Loftus rope. I just saw uday cottonrope, very white very soft and cuts nice. Especially for the price.

I am curious what Neal Prete's rope is and if he is just buying a standard rope or is importing it.
Message: Posted by: dbaronian (Nov 4, 2011 09:19PM)
Neal contacted me several months ago, I called him and emailed him back, but we never had a transaction. He said he would call me but never did. Don't really know what he sells but he was curious about my ropes.

Just got samples from Preta, it is very bright rope and several colors. It is not cotton though, it is braided synthetic with a core. Very stiff by comparison to cotton ropes. He send the "cord" in colors and it is just under 1/4". Cuts easy, but frays unless you melt it.
In my estimation it is not even close to magic grade cotton. The core is multi strands and removal does make the rope more supple.
The "super" rope is just about 1/2" but slightly larger and whiter than baronian bct-10, but just as white as the Loftus rope I carry (www.rope.ws). Removing the core from that does not make a difference, it is just not soft enough for rope work. Sorry Neal.
The cored piece of the 1/4" was good for Sands and Tabary effects, but for fiber optics the smaller piece was too stiff for the moves.
Message: Posted by: KOTAH (Nov 18, 2011 09:24AM)
I have always stated that super rope was a nylon like rope.

I Love the way it glides through my hands for various st
retching rope effects, and traveling knots

It is extremely bright and visible, and stays clean after repeated handlings

For my needs it is the rope I like choose to use.

price wise it is cost effective as well.


We all discover what we like best, and when we do we stick with it.

Oddly enough (as Ian mentioned above) I have found that I enjoy using Uday rope too, when I am not using Loftus. The Uday handles quite nicely, looks good from stage (at least that has been my experience thus far) and works very well in all of the routines I do. It really is nice for the price.

Scott Alexander's effect uses a very thick soft rope. I do not believe any standard magicians rope will be the same, is it would Scott would be marketing his effect. That is his holdup, trying to obtain the rope he uses.

Of course in the end, rope is rope and if you are not a perfectionist, then most any pliable soft rope will work. Scott is choosing his rope for many other reasons then just thick and soft, visibility, handling, etc.

Hello Everyone,
I want to thank you all for your support in the last 5 years. I want to let you know that I have started working with Murphy's Magic Supplies and they will be carrying my BTC ropes EXCLUSIVELY. I no longer sell wholesale, only retail now. So for those dealers that have been interested in my ropes, whether in the US or abroad, you may now order directly from Murphy's with your other products. This step allows dealers abroad and their local magicians to have access to BTC ropes without paying astronomical prices for shipping, since they are able to purchase multiple products for their stores.

This move has been something I've been thinking about for a while. I contacted Murphy's last week, and they will be receiving BTC ropes on Monday.
If any of my clients have any questions regarding this change in business strategy...please email me directly at dany@baroniantrading.com .

Thank you for your support and business,

It WAS the "best rope I have ever used", NOT ANYMORE! I used exclusively BTC2 with core. I removed the core, for how I used it, and it still retained it's tubular shape. Great for handling.
But they changed manufacturers. The new BTC2 when you remove the core very quickly becomes flat! Not good for my use. Also the products new prices will certainly make me shop around.
(I know BTC3 is available without core, but texture is slightly different, I don't like it)

I bought the BTC-4 Natural 100 meter spool, it still stands as one of my best magic purchases.
I won't buy a different rope for magic.

And I can count on BTC, that's a big one for me.

Wow! The BTC prices are a little more than double what it cost me just 8 months ago! Is that a concession you made to Murphy's, Dani, for competition reasons? Or did raw materials jump that much?

Thank you.

With every recession since 2008, prices have risen and in many cases doubled. Why, nothing but greed. I started eating canned soup for lunch a few years back. During a recession and after, the soup price was increased, and when I opened the can it was only half full of noodles, the rest was all water. All the food suppliers are doing this, does not matter the brand.

Remember the recession in 2008, at least they blamed it on trucking transportation cost. Now they just jack up the price and you get less. I guess the Republications in Washington D.C. did away with packaging laws.

I just purchased some of his ropes. I don't do any cutting in my routine so should last me a good while.
