I would like to know if anyone can tell me where I can obtain hanks of rope that match the thick rope used in Empire Magic's version of "Rigid Rope"?

It's 5/8" thick rope. I want to be able to switch a non-gimmicked rope for the "Rigid Rope" and want the ropes to be exactly the same in appearance.

This 5/8" thick cotton rope is very visible and would work great for standard Cut & Restored or Professor's Nightmare, Linking Ropes, etc...

Empire is selling their Rigid Ropes in bulk, so there must be a supplier of this 5/8" thick rope.

Anyone know?

(oddly enough, e-mails to Empire Magic are no good. They will not reveal the source of the rope used. I think they must have purchased the trick ropes in bulk from an overseas wholesaler and don't even know the source of the rope)

Empire told me they get the rope from Italy. Check out all magic shops in Italy. I hope that helps
Also, I don't know if it's the same size but check out rope that Camirand Academy of magic in Canada has.

There are two different magic suppliers called Empire Magic. The "Empire Magic" who markets the "rigid rope" referred to above appears to be a division of Loftus International. They are a wholesale only business who markets effects to magic shops.

However, I found the 5/8" rope I'm looking for on the website of a magic shop called Empire Magic.

http://www.empiremagic.com/

I don't know if there is any relationship between the two, but I don't think so.

The rope that Empire Magic sells is located here:

They call it Deluxe EuroRope.

"EuroRope is larger than most regular magician's rope which measures 1/4" inch in diameter. Deluxe EuroRope measures 3/8" inch. Super Deluxe EuroRope measures
5/8" inch."

You might try http://www.camirandmagic.com/ I've heard good things about their rope. While you're there, check out their Elite Garnier card to wallet. I have one and love it.
