Daryl mentioned in his video that he got the rope from Japan - but that was years ago...

A very special weave, and he bought it in Japan is nothing but baloney
It is the old fashion yarn weave that my mom showed me how to do when I was 8 years old. If you buy a spool with four posts at the craft store you could make one yourself for pennies.

Were you guys ever kids?

Angello - It looks like we are about the same age, but I don't know much about yarn or posts etc. In looking at the rope, it sure doesn't look like four whatevers weaved together. In any case, I am interested in knowing more about this subject, although I suspect I will never actually weave my own rope. I wish I could by similar rope to use for Professor's Nightmare routine. If you could make sets of rope to use for PN for pennies, you could probably sell them for quite a profit (hint hint)

Al, the first one I bought from Daryl years ago was made from regular cotton rope. I think I liked it better.

Now I have this life-size picture in my head of eight-year old Al Angello knitting.

(We're all kids here. This business keeps us young!).

Best,

Andre

Seems to me that big toy stores used to have rope weaving sets that produced that sort of thing for crafts.

Show a set to your local Knitting Club and I'm sure they can accommodate.

I'd like something less fuzzy but the stretch does help the illusion.

Actually my mom got an empty spool of thread, hammered four finishing nails into it, and away I went. It is also very easy to change colors too. I was a kid in the 50's and everything we played with was very low tech. If you go to a craft store they should be able to hook you up. My grand daughter has one.

Daryl stopped using real rope because it frayed at the joints.

I lost my gimmick. Luckily, Daryl sells them on his website for cheap.
I'm dong a show with Daryl this weekend so I'm going to pick up a few extra from him then.
I'm also hoping he can convince me that it's easy to use for strolling.
I see potential for 2 knots to come undone without me knowing it until right before I begin the trick.

I believe he goes over some of this on the DVD but I'm not sure I know where my copy is anymore.

I do a lot of combo strolling/stand-up shows and I don't want to do PN for both (as I stated above)
so this would be a great substitute for PN in my strolling set when I'm doing a combo act.

I've been lazy about putting this into the rotation but I'm not giving up. It's fabulous.

Hi Al, I'm still around. Posting much less. I started focusing on other things besides magic only.
Still doing shows. Just posting less which is probably a good thing for me... and everybody else Smile

I should stay in better contact with you. I already forgot how to do the boomerang rubber-band you showed me a few years ago.

The boomerang rubber band trick is still up on my web site, and it is still for free.

Oh! Thanks!

BTW, I still have my post-it note you sent me in the mail with some good rubber bands that says....

Does anyone know where to purchase the kind of rope that is used in this effect? Its very thick and soft - haven't been able to find a similar rope anywhere...

Mary Mowder suggested: Get Daryl's Jumping Knot of Pakistan and disk from http://www.FoolerDoolers.com.
I saw it advertised just a day or two ago. Purchase the whole trick, or just the ropes.

For the boomerang you must use Brites pure latex rubber bands made by Alliance for it to work at all.

I just bought Jumping Knot of Pakistan from a Café member (great prompt service and the trick is in great shape by the way - Thanks DJ.)
It came with written instructions. Does Daryl sell just the DVD?
I know, how about if I just go the the sit and look for myself! (what a concept).

May as well buy the set from Daryl. They do wear out. Besides you will want an extra in case you misplace your k**t every once in a while. Having an extra gives you time to find it without panic.

I use one of these to make my Jumping Knot Ropes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_1ShndyZUc
It only takes a few minutes to make a set and I can make them in any colour combination I desire. I also tend to make them a bit longer than the set Dayrl supplies.

I saw Daryl this past weekend at a casino gig we did together and he was nice enough to bring me a few extra knots.
I didn't even know he sold them on his website. I'd lost my original knot and was using a make-shift version from different rope.
So, if you need extra knots you can get them right from Daryl's website.

Payne,
Nice clip. Very interesting. What is that thing called in English, I wonder?

I feel so embarrassed, the one I used did the same thing, but very very slow compared to that high tech gizmo of yours.
