Pete - thanks.
I agree, you can't REALLY cut it into three and REALLY restore it to one (ungimmicked) piece, but the deception could be in either of those REALLYs.

John,
I'll check my library tonight and give you the book source. I've been doing it for 20 years and always have an awesome response.

I'll second that Whit Haydn's Mongolian Pop Knot is excellent. The motivations for moving from one phase to another are strong.

I picked up a gimmicked version of the Professor's Nightmare from Bob Little at a magic convention. It was called the Professor's Dream.

I have Professor's Dream and like it. The only problem is that you cannot do a full Professor's Nightmare routine, and great care must be used when showing the ropes. Overall, it's a good effect, but you are probably better off with Whit's Mongolian Pop Knot.

More thought makes me believe this is a version of Hen Fetch's "Quadroplets", where four pieces of rope melt into a single length. Not examinable, though.

Pete,

Has everyone forgotten Pat Conway?

Ken Brooke sold the Pat Conway ending of the professor's nightmare.
It's a nice ending to the trick.I still use it in my prof routine.

Richard,

Is this still a marketed effect?

No, I've never seen it since Ken Brook went out of business.
It's just the best way to end the Professor's Nightmare.

The link doesn't seem to be working for the Professor's Dream. Anyone have another one?

Another variation of the Professor's Nightmare is a rope routine developed by Akanuma from Japan.
The name is "A Dream Come True."
You show at the end all 3 ropes are truly equal with no covering of the ropes!


Sincerely,
