Stiff Rope -U273 -RM7.00
The magician displays a piece of rope about 30 inch long. Rope is coiled over the magician’s hand to prove it is just an ordinary rope. The magician now stretches the rope between his two hands, horizontally, and pretends to hypnotize the rope. One hand is now released, and the rope stands rigid like a stick. The magician merely blows on the rope, and it falls down limp once again.
The rope may be used as a comedy prop with another trick, or as an effect by itself. The rope may be made to stand horizontally, or in a near vertical position. It cannot be made stiff in a perfectly vertical position. You may call up two spectators and ask each of them to blow on the rope held between your hands in turn. When one spectator blows, the rope falls limp, and when the other spectator blows, the rope remain erect.
The rope may also be held at the center when it is stiff. Most magicians will have probably seen a presentation of the effect, ranging from mildly funny to outrageously naughty. We will leave the exact presentation to your taste and discretion.
