This is a very effective bit of Magic – with shades of the legendary Indian Rope trick.
The magician displays a piece of rope about 36″ long. The 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 hypnotise 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.
You can repeat this as often as you like. No strings, or extra attachments. The specially prepared rope supplied is responsible for the effect.
