I've decided to expand my rope magic. Looking for a pretty good close-up walk-around cut and Restored rope routine. Any suggestions?

Greetings and Salutations,

Find Patrick Page's endless rope routine. You do a cut and restore but endlessly use the same rope. Harry Murphy here on the boards is a big proponent. Do a search, there are quite a few discussions on the topic.

I believe the routine and setup are on his 25 tricks DVD and in a set of lecture notes.

The great thing for you would be not having to carry around a spool of rope.

Good luck.

Joe is right. The first thing to consider is to use the same rope through your whole session if you're doing close-up or walk around magic.
Have a look at "Slashed" by Scott Alexander.

"Ghost Rope" from The Wizards' Journal #1 is a cut and restored rope routine where the rope is mysteriously severed in half by a ghost. The two pieces of rope are separated, and then restored. No rope is used up during the routine, and it does not use the gimmicks of Pat Page's Everlasting Rope- which can sometimes cause problems and give themselves away. The routine described on my site uses a hangman's noose and a story about "Nearly Headless Nick" from the Harry Potter books, but it is open to a variety of different types of ropes and routines.

Another great rope walk-around is Fl!p Halema's "O-pener" rope. You'll find it on the "World's Greatest Magic - Professional Rope Routines" DVD from L&L Publishing.
