I am thinking about buying the trick "roped". This is the effect if you don't already know it:

Show a piece of rope you are holding in your hands...and suddenly the spectators can see the rope is running into your coat and out of your right sleeve. Then, the other end of the rope is running out of your other sleeve! In a blink, the rope that was in front of your chest is now behind your back! You give the rope a tug and it goes straight through your body! The rope may now be handed out for complete examination by the audience.

Does anybody have this and if so, do you like it?

Henry Evans has a variation where the rope effect you ask about is combined with a card trick... Smile

I would like to start off by saying I don't own the trick, but I have seen a few guys in my magic club do this effect and it looks great when done well.

Evan; Just received "Roped" and have gone through the routine only once, so I can't really give a good opinion yet. I can tell you that this effect is only going to be good if the presentation / patter is also good.

The instructions are well written and have good B&W photos accompanying the text. The explanation only tells you how to do the set up and the moves. You will have to develop your own presentation, which is not a bad thing if you are creative. Will let you know more once I work with it some more.

Last week I saw Henry Evans perform his version (the one Pete Biro mentioned) and it was terrific. The addition of revealing a selected card impaled on the rope made the effect even more impressive. But you do need a good presentation to sell it.
