Saw Dan do this in his show at the Castle. Very strong effect. If I were to get it I would shorten the routine and maybe go into something else with the one fair rope tossing the other pieces into my bag.

I just got mine recently. Simply eye candy for the spectators.

When explaining that I can do it but don't know the secret, I like to explain I can make a TV work by turning it on but really don't have a clue how it works either.

When I say simply eye candy, I don't mean to lessen it but it is just enjoyable to sit and watch.

I thought about that too using one the longer fair rope. But it quite short and not certain what routine I could use with that length of rope.

I just got it in yesterday and I love it...one thing that went through my mind if you work with children, you could develop a fantasic routine for kids with this...talk about how you wish you could make the ropes all the same size, you do it, the kids see it, but every time you go to look at it, they are back to three different sizes (look but don't see concept)you could milk this one and the kids would go crazy...and the adults would totally blown away...

I like your idea there, it got me thinking more about it. Perhaps one could do a takeoff of fairy tales with a a collison of The Three Little Pigs and Godilocks. One moment you have the Papa Bear, Mama Bear and Baby Bear in Goldilocks and in a second you have the Three Little Pigs.

I've finally found time to make video instructions for The Awakening. I'm offering these FREE to anyone who owns this effect. I've already sent the link to everyone who ever ordered directly from my site, but I'd like to make sure everybody else can get them, too... regardless of where you purchased The Awakening. If you're interested, simply contact me through my email address below and tell me how many illustrations are in the original printed instructions for The Awakening. If you've lost them, you can still contact me and include a small picture of yourself with the ropes. I'll respond with a link to the video.

Does anyone know what kind of rope is used in the awakening? I am using a similar type of rope (with that shiny slippery finish) for another effect but haven't stumbled across more of it until I bought "The Awakening".

Thx

The effect really fooled me the first time I watched it... but
Isn't this more of a magician fooler? (especially since Dan's patter conditioned us to think in terms of Prof. Nightmare).

Seems like if I showed this to non-magicians, a very standard rope gimmick would come to mind.

For those that have performed this for a lay audience, do you think this is really better than PN?

Right John! I DO NOT LIKE HIS TIPPING THE LINKED BIGHTS which is the basic principle of PN.

EYE CANDY, YES.
