Hi guys,

I have some bucks to spare on rope magic, but can't decide on which one of the above. I am currently thinking about Professor Supreme, where it is the normal nightmare routine but the three ropes magicially join into one rope in the end. Would someone help me to decide?

Thanks

Depends how much you want to practice.

Professor's Nightmare is pretty simple.

Optical Ropes is self working (it's gimmicked).

Three Ropes and a Baby is difficult to learn and takes a lot of practice.

Three Ropes and a Baby looks the best out of the above effects in my opinion.

If you want a lot of mileage out of three ropes, I suggest Three Ropes and a Baby. No gimmick and it is based on the professor's nightmare. I love it.

I believe Hank carries it. In fact, I am sure of that.

Hey Guys,

Just to let you know, 3 Ropes and a Baby is now new and improved and it's called Fiber Optics.

This is the same routine as 3 Ropes and a Baby, but with lots of new super visual moves. You can see a video demo of it at http://www.richardsandersmagic.com.
It is available at your favorite dealer.

Hope that helps.

Thanks so much for all the nice comments about the routine.

Hey, Three ropes and a Baby is now in my kid show routine, and I love it.
I just don't know what I'll do without it. I will now have a look at "Fiber-- Optic".

I met you at the "Browsers Den of magic."

Also, just so you know the original 3 Ropes and baby included rope, however the fiber optics DVD does not.

SO when you order fiber optics, also get some Elite Magician's Rope, stage size(10mm diameter) from Camirand Academy of magic. (Hocus Pocus and others also carry it).

Get Fiber Optics. It is by far the best rope routine I've ever used and just gets gasps throughout the routine, and even has everyone grabbing for the rope even after they've inspected it at the end, and you CAN hand it all out.

If you buy Fiber Optics, make sure you also check out Richard's One Rope Routine at the end of the DVD. It is a great routine if you want something a little shorter than the three rope routine.

Hey Richard,

Hanks a lot. I'm just getting the knack of Three Ropes and a Baby and now you tell me there's more.....I hate you.

Actually I have to thank you for Three Ropes. It's about only trick I demo at Perfect Magic when I used to fill in and almost always the one trick I sold. Can't wait to check out Fiber Optics.
All the best.

Hmmm, no post since Jan 2005. In case anyones still reading this I would like to add Full Circle to the mix...I got Full Circle directly from Rick Castro (he's a member here on the Café) it came with great quality ropes, a ring, and a vhs of the entire routine performed and explained by John G. Awesome routine, not too knucklebusting, and it gets my highest recommendation as you get TWO routines for the price of one. Its such a nice progression from Professors Nightmare into a Ring-and-Rope routine and ending soooooo clean back at the Professors Nightmare where EVERYTHING is examinable. This is easily the best money I have spent on magic in the past year! And Rick was so easy to do business with, Thanks Rick for a super commercial piece of magic!

Professor's Supreme is actually a copy of Professor's Dream.
See Faker's website:
http://www.magicunlimited.com/NewvsOriginal.htm

There is a longer Professor's Dream routine ... see video on youtube:

This is a three year, and seven month old thread, but still "Full Circle", and "Fiber Optics" are the best one two punch ever in rope magic.

Just watched the youtube video clip of the gentleman mentioned above "There is a longer Professor's Dream routine". Is that a published routine? If so, where could it be found?

At the Richard Sanders web site he has a "Fiber Optics" demo. On youtube there is a very sloppy "Full Circle" routine done by a beginner. If you put the two together you will have your own custom rope routine.

The "professors dream" mentioned above is a take off of Pavels "junior walking knot" but with a different gimmick. I've never seen it done quite that way before, but I'm sure I can do it as long as I don't have an accident with the gimmicks, because I do the Pavel trick.

Huh, what? Who woke me up! Is that you Al? Can't an old man get any sleep?

Now that I'm awake...

I pretty much stayed out of this thread because I still do my own ring/rope routine gathered from a zillion sources a zillion years ago.

Every once in a decade or so I add something new.

There are eight links to the routine and one final unlink. I do this explaining that it was a contest at an international magic convention and each link is done by someone of a different nationality. (Yes I even imitate the foreign dialects).

Of course it's the American who does the final unlink and gets honorable mention for being...different.

Use it if you want in Pennsylvania. Do it in my territory and I'll have Bubba pay you a visit!

My wife tells me that I can go out to play as long as I sleep at home every night, so Madison Wisconsin is out of my range.

Hello,

The routine for the Professor's Dream is from Japan.
Here's the latest effect from the maker of Professor's Dream. It is called "A Dream Come True"
