Mickey and I are friends of Steve Dusheck so any friend of Steve's is a friend of mine. We have been PMing and he is on the right track, but I want to thank both you for the compliments.

I've never done any rope tricks however this one has created a desire to learn a few! Any suggestions where to start guys?
Thanks in advance!

Daryl's 3 DVD set is good, but you may want to start out less expensively with Fulves Self working Rope Magic, or the Encyclopedia of Rope (which is very extensive). These two have a good amount of ring and rope methods, and Sefalajia methods (think Dean's Box) as well. If you want finger ring and rope (or better string), Greg Wilson's Ring Leader is quite good.

Hi John
It is good to know that we all agree on where to start. I said Daryl, and Karl Fulves too.

Thank you all!
As Al mentioned, we've been shooting PM's back and forth and I have been burning the midnight oil reading all the past posts in this section.
I got a PN download and Scott Guinn's Ring on Rope and I'm waiting for a surprise in the mail. I plan to order Daryl's 3 DVD set, Fulves and the Encyclopedia to add to my library. I even dug out my old Mark Wilson book for the C&R's.
Being a huge Dusheck fan I'm a tinkerer and gaff nut as well so I've already made some "funny" ropes and knots and I've filled pages with ideas that may become something someday!
I'm having fun and that's what it's all about to me!

Hey Bob, You shoulda watched my lecture when you were in Tampa. That's how I open my lecture. Been doing that effect since the mid-seventies and it's my hook for the rest of the lecture.
If anyone has a club, I have my 30th anniversary lecture tour booking now thru 2008. 30 years of "Gotcha effects".

Hello Ian,

Apologies are due. I'm sorry that I've been so slow getting back to this thread.

Certainly I should have seen your lecture when I was in Tampa. You know that I'm sorry I missed it. At least we got to have supper together. That was the last time I'll be in New Orleans first on the way.

New Orleans is only history now for entertainers. (Mardi Gras in Mobile is as close as it gets.) Tampa can get more of my time now. I do the RedNeck Riviera in January and February. It's time to scheme! (I'll trade you a lecture in Tampa for one in Birmingham.)

And don't tell Andy and Al that we did magic in the 70s. I almost have them believing that I'm young and new to all this. Keep it up and I'll tell him that you invented rope!

I'm sending you a PM.

You really know how to hurt a guy's feelings with three little pieces of rope! (Now I'll have to change my avatar.)

Darn, I want to see it, but with my sloooow dialup, I can't. However, having bought some of Ian's effects in the past I am sure it is great, and after reading these reactions I would not hesitate to buy it without even seeing it. In fact, I am going to try and find out how to order it. Can anyone purchase it? Or do you have to get it after attending a lecture?

By the way, Andy..
Thanks for the support and thanks for the kind words Regan. You guys validate my work. It is heartening to have the reactions like this for something I did almost 25 years ago. (still doin it).
You might like this: I posted some old stuff on aol and youtube recently and saw some really raw footage of my first TV show showing the coin in balloon.

Ian,

I'm working on your coin in balloon, and your hookup for the Haunted Pack is outstanding. Really like your finesse on the cut-and-restored rope.

Never got so much for so little from a single order!

If you get Ian's lecture on DVD you are not going to be sorry. It is worth every penny. Now if you like his Professor's nightmare and how that ends wait till you see how he continues the routine using a change bag and a volunteer. I've seen Ian lecture 3 times, once at my house, and he has something new and different every time. Plus he is a great guy.

Thanks Ian, this has been great fun already. One of those "head slappers". The Prof. Nightmare has been so oversold here at the local renfest that it seemed everyone knew it. I am having great fun with yours already. I'm already hearing..."I knew they sold my kid the amateur version!" I already do a version of Sanders/Tabary combined but this will be great when I get called out for a quickie(magic). Especially when someone says "Cmon John, do that rope trick my kid does"..chuckle chuckle.

For some of the kids out there that are really interested in magic and know a few tricks, this is a great inspirational one (performance only) to convince them to keep learning. I feel like a kid again when I come across a discovery like this.

My uncle was a magician and would show me how to do the most simple parts of his effects given my interest in magic. He would then send me on to books to learn the rest. Only after I had exhausted my searching (whilst learning many incredible things along the way) would he reveal the real deal to me. This trick brings back that nostalgia.

I am not very skilled, and I have just taken a different slant on performing the classics. My entire lecture (the "gotcha" lecture), is based on taking down the old timers and the know-it-alls who take a lot for granted.
I had some "reputation makers" like that when I started out, which gave me my taste for "magicians blood". I went to National conventions and did the "steel ball and tube" and was selling the trick to people who actually owned it and thought mine was somehow different. I had the book Magic w/a steel ball and tube:

http://bigduck.tripod.com/id5.html#tube

and sold the effect and the booklet. The book had a solid deception routine in it (before the "Kennedy Version", plus impossible steals and handouts and methods that didn't use the gimmick.
I show the ring and spring in the lecture (actually give the entire audience a set), then proceed to fool them with an imperceptible move and of course the magicians twist.
I live to hear "***, and wow, and son of a ----- from an audience of magicians. I am getting such a kick from comments like yours and others, and I'm just getting started. Thanks for the kind words. More to come.

Ian, I have ordered and got the download for your PN. Very good, I perform the traditional PN as a kids routine(with patter about good manners) and was looking for some way to perform it for a non-child audience. With the right patter this will work out well.
Great effect and thanks for sharing.

Ian speaks the truth about his ball and tube!

Rope tricks aside, if you think you know the ball and tube trick, but haven't seen Ians work with it....You haven't seen the ball and tube trick. It's a simple prop that a lot of us dismiss as simple. But Ian's routine will seriously hurt your feelings (AKA - fool you very badly). Highly recommended!

Just did a lecture for Laymen. It works great for any audience. The impact is the same for the lay audience. It's your mindset, that it may not be enough. From the lay perspective, they are just as amazed.
