Perhaps the standards of the manufacturing have not, but the contracted rate for the distributer has.

I hate getting second, third, or fourth runs of products. It seems that the majority of the time they just aren't quite the same as the originals.

Of course, there are always exceptions to the 'rule'

I'd keep on the lookout for it on eBay and maybe you can buy the older version which is made of a really thick, almost yarn-like material.

Maybe you may wish to make your own set of ropes like I did. You might recall as a child taking a wooden spool, placing 4-5 nails on top, and then knitting a long hollow core rope. I made a couple of sets in this manner. It's easy to blend/knit in the 2 colours of rope and the red part (for knot) becomes part of the white rope. Cheers....

Are there any other sources of ropes to buy for this effect besides Daryl's? His ropes are all right, but I'm looking for something of much better quality, with a litte more length.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Daryl has re-released this trick with instructional DVD as well as thicker and better quality ropes. Check it out from http://www.hocus-pocus.com or Daryl's own site http://www.foolerdoolers.com

The first set of ropes I got from Daryl was the magician's rope and they were good. the reason I like the knitted ones is they simply cannot be ripped apart because it's all one knit. if they're made out of the right stuff they have a good weight to them as well. I have a set for Christmas (red Green) a set for blue and gold banquets and white and green fir St patricks day. I do it in just about every show. including walk around.
enjoy!!
