Fiber Optics is packed full of rope effects.
And has a very nice Professors nightmare routine.

There's a World's Greatest Professor's Nightmare - I really like Michael Finney's performance and explanation. His breakdown is great and was easy for me to learn from.

Old books published by Harry Stanley of England and later Supreme Magic is old held stock being released currently. The book "Give a Magician Enough Rope", Equal - Unequal Ropes is available again. It all about Professor Nightmare effects.

In England is is referred to as "Equal - Unequal Ropes", or was way back when.

Pop Haydn's Mongolian Pop Knot is one of the best routines in magic, and he teaches it all in his video. It's a cut and restored rope routine with a Professors Nightmare in the middle. I highly recommend it.

Mac King teaches some fun Professors Rope moves, along with a separate cut and restored rope routine in his Penguin Lecture.

and while short, Michael Ammar has a really nice, simple, and clean Nightmare in his recent Penguin Live Act Lecture.

For just the Professors Nightmare , the WGM DVD is a great value

I would agree with the WGM DVD on the professors nightmare. Since you asked for this, I am suggesting this. I would also add, that the special count, counting the three equal ropes is an important convincer. However, you also must realize that sometimes people with a basic interest in magic have seen how this works. That is why you do want to connect it with something better, as in many suggestions above. What I do is to make all three ropes end up as one at the end. It can be freely shown as one, you don't have to hold onto a certain part in my routine.

Countrymaven, so are you saying that your ending of one long piece of rope is in the World's Greatest Magic DVD? If not, now that you told a new comer who does not know what you are talking about, you should inform him of the source.

No, Bill, it is not there. But the WGM does have plenty of extended routines. And some of the things discussed above are similar. The ending I referred to is unpublished. But more important than that particular ending is perhaps, as stated above, having something so that those who may know the prof. nightmare may still be suprised by a good ending or routine.

No doubt Pop has a killer routine. I don't own it tho. 🤦‍♂️

I do own Michael Finneys' dvd and it's pretty straight forward and I should check that out again........like everything else I need to do. 🤣🤣🤦‍♂️🤣
