I am putting together my stage show, and I would like to include a rope effect. What is your favorite rotuine that you do on stage, that plays just as well for say 100 people as it does for 500 people. I am looking for a routine that has a bit of length to it open for a nice presentation. Price isn't much of an issue, I am far more worried about the maximum imapct of the effect. Thanks.

I think Daryl's routine is one of the best, I use it quite often.

Without a doubt, the Tabary Rope Routine.

The best thing to do is to buy all the rope routines available. Learn them all as well as possible. Then you will have enough experience to put your own act together. It's just too easy today for magicians to say, "I want to do a ring routine. Whose should I use?"

You will be much better off using your own personality and learned skills to construct your very own signature effet. Why repaint the Mona Lisa? Brian, there's a wealth of information in Flip's Rope video.
Enough moves and sleights to put an act together. But don't stop there; check out Daryl and Tabary. Learn them all while you are still young, and you will be better than all of the other cookie cutters out there.

Cheers

I would also recommend the rope work of Salvano. Whilst he isn't using original methods, he has revolutionised the handling of the most common rope manoeuvres, making them look as close to 'real magic' as possible!

Sterling's is great, but Salvano's is another overlooked artist. I think he's way better than Tabary.

You may want to look at Aldo Colombini's rope work which is on a number of his videos. My rope routine (which I have performed on stage with patter) is eclectic but draws a lot on Aldo's work.

Pavel's super walking knot is great (see other threads). Also the Tabary rope routine is great.

The routine I use is Jim Pace's "What" in his restaurant lecture video. It can play big to any size and has many baffling effects. I have Tabary's second video and was very pleased...a lot more involved but very nice magic.

Sandsational, Daryl, Tabary (both videos), Aldo Columbini and three ropes and a baby are all wonderful rope effects, suitable for stage or parlour.

I agree, but do not think you can order—and then perform—the walking knot in at least 1000 practices (see another thread) before reaching perfection!! But WELL worth the time and effort, this effect rocks!!

Best stage routine using a rope?

For an “in one” routine almost any one of the ones mentioned above will prove very entertaining. A couple that have not been mentioned that are very, very good include Slydini’s “Cut and Restored to Professor’s Nightmare” routine, which is hard to beat for a gimmickless and totally amazing routine. And Steve Bidwell’s opener, which includes a “Stretching Rope to Cut and Instantaneously Restored Tossed Out Rope” routine, is hard to beat for pure “Wow” factor. Of course Steve’s routine uses a very easy to make (homemade), easy to use, gimmick.

However if you want to fill a stage and make your act look really big you can do one of a number of good routines that use a couple of audience/spectator assistants and a long length of rope. In this vein it is extremely difficult to beat the “Cut and Restored Walking Knot” routine. You could use either the Jim Steinmyer ungimmicked rope (but does use a gimmick) version or Pavel Super Walking Knot version (maximum gimmicks). You could even decide to use a “Rope Through Body” routine. Bob Sheets “Hang Em High” is a good gimmicked routine or you could even sue the very old (and gimmickless) “Grant’s Nite Club Rope Through Woman.” Using three spectators to assist you is hard to top.

I will add SHEIGO TEKAGI. His rope routine was teriffic for stage or parlour.
Steve Bidwell is another artist whose rope effects are brilliant.
And finally the work of FLIP. Many magicians use his moves that he created.

I like either Pavel's Super Walking Knot or Whit Haydn's Mongolian Pop Knot. Both play big enough for stage.

I'm pretty new to rope magic.

But what I have been doing is opening with Professors Nightmare (doesn't everybody Smile) then after that is done, I change all 3 ropes into one long rope (no gimmicks are used) then do a C&R.

Where can I find the Salvano routine on ROPES? Is there a Video or DVD on this, Thanks.

Salvano's great rope material was last seen at http://www.stevensmagic.com

He will fool you.

Have any of you thought of the Kellar Rope Tie?
