I was just wondering about this effect. I have been practising it for awhile and I have the endless loop illussion down pretty good, but I have found that a lot of people can figure out how the move works the second time you make the loop by using "static electricity". Has anyone else found this happening to them? should I just take that part out?

Nope.... use it all the time and no one is the wiser...

First make sure they don't see the "get-ready" and touch the ends together(well away from your hands) so that image gets in their mind.

Later on, they will recall that image when they think of it fusing...

Other than that, make sure your attitude and posture aren't giving anything away.

Also, after they are fused and you show the rope to be a solid ring, you should find the ends right away, don't "pause". This is true for every magic effect usually, you should keep them intellectually busy the entire time, don't let their minds wander.

Just go on with the routine. They might know how you did it but they'll soon forget it as you show more phases of the routine.
I always do it even the endless loop part.

Been performing 3 ropes and a baby for years now and NEVER been busted on any part of the routien. My advice to you is video tape yourself and see if you are "RUNNING when NOT chased. As stated from another fellow magician: Just keep going and do not stop or slow the pace and you should be just fine.

I agree with all above posts. I am always nervous about performing the move your describing, but I found out that no one even notices it. I have been caught ONE time out of the hundreds of time I've performed this, and that's because I missed the vital move during the 'friction' which gave it away Smile

If you keep going on with the routine, they'll forget it ever happened and will become amazed by your crazy rope magic skills Smile
