Has anyone tried this routine? I've watched it on Daryl's video and really like it. I see he sells a set of ropes and printed routine. Any reviews would be welcomed. Thanks.

I have used it in conjunction with a red and white color changing silks routine and think that it is effective and plays well. I also think that the instruction on the video is better than the notes that come with the effect.

I studied the instructions before going to a Daryl lecture, a few years ago. I was then able to concentrate on the changes he made in the handling. I've been doing it for years now and it never fails to get a great response!

I also added an idea on the setup that allows me to pickup the knot when I pickup the white rope. I just loop part of the rope through the knot— it eliminates the fumbling.

Yes, I've used it in the past. It's a great routine.

Get Paul Daniels's routine and see a totally new idea to think about.

This effect is, I believe, one that is open to a number of different presentational possibilities.

Mike Close had an interesting one in one of the Workers books, but as I studied it, it seemed so specific to him.

Then I realized that I just needed to write my own script. Took a couple months to get it right, but I finally did.

It's a very strong trick.

I got a set of ropes from Daryl a few years ago. They were OK, but looked like they were knitted ropes.

I recall seeing sets of these ropes that were more like "normal" magician's rope-material.

Does anyone know if there are different versions for sale?

I'm not sure what "normal" is, but you could make them. Daryl's are cool in a scary way, because if people bother to look at the rope closely enough they'll see that the red thread is not a dyed part of the white rope but red rope that is knitted into the white. I've never really seen any layperson care that much, but it's such a fun routine to do, knowing I could show this just makes me happy.

I also like Daryl's set... except he teaches an alternate fake knot on one of his Fooler Dooler videos, and the knot looks much better than the version I had learned.

Anyway, his packaged ropes aren't long enough to do the alternate knot with! D'oh! Gotta get some new red rope...

The knot that I learned looks like an overhand knot when done correctly, I save it for the middle of the routine. I do a bow knot early in the routine, but my patter demands that type of knot.

I use Jumping Knot of Pakistan all the time when doing walk around. I've heard some say they won't because it's not an instant reset, but ducking out for the one second it takes to retie a bow knot isn't that big of a deal for me.

I've never really come up with exciting patter for this because the trick seems to work itself pretty nicely. I live near Detroit, so the red and white thing looks good for the RedWings and based on how inebriated my audience is I can start a cheer for the Red Wings; occasionally these cheers drone out the magic or if they just lost a Stanley Cup result in me gettin' a good beating.

I think this is a wonderful routine! I picked it up at one of his lectures about a year ago. It's just an awesome routine that I use in almost all of my kidshows.

You have two ropes. One is white, the other is red. You tie a knot in the white rope and wrap that rope around the red one. When the ropes are pulled apart or "untwisted," the WHITE knot is now on the red rope and the white rope is clean. You can then slide this white knot entirely off of the red rope and magically toss it back on. The finale ends up being that the white knot is melted ONTO the red rope. So you're left with a rope with a little white piece in it. It's a nifty routine, in my opinion.

If anyone is interested in "popping" knots, Whit Haydn has an excellent routine "Mongolian Pop Knot". Check it out.

I really like Whit's routine. Not being a rope guy, this took a while to do but it is worth it.

His ropes are "knitted" because its hard to dye just a small section of rope without making the dye soak into the fibre of the rope and go where you don't want it to go.

The jumping knot is a fantastic routine and it plays for all audiences.

In his rope magic video Daryl says that you can make it yourself, but the process is a hassle. After watching that I thought about it and then decided to not even follow through. Then I went to one of his lectures and bought one from him; since that time I am hooked. The ropes are great and I believe that the ropes are machine washable.

As for reset, I never worry about anyone seeing me, I just tie the knot as I walk. I have even tied knots as I talked to people and they never seem to even notice, it's one of those magic principles that something so sinsister wouldn't be done right in front of their eyess.

I used it for about 10 years solid, getting a better & better reaction with each year. It's a great effect when presented properly!

I can't speak highly enough of the "Jumping Knot." It's both magical and comical.

Excellent for all occasions. Stand up, close up, walk around and street.

I also recommend Daryl's ropes. I have tried dying and found that I can't stop them from bleeding.

My opinion, Patrick
