I'm working on an escape artist show, with a little help from the great Dan Harlan.

Dan does his show with a truly THICK rope. Looks to be 3/4 of an inch to even an inch thick, yet still soft and plyable as in the standard cotton magicians rope.

I can't find it in my hardware store. Their rope is STIFF. That won't work!

Can anyone tell me a source where I can find this ultra thick, yet soft rope?

Bronian trading company sells very thick rope. Without the core it is very soft

Yep, the BTC (link above) is the best source. It's the closest to the rope I used to use, but have never been able to find again. The search continues.

I bought it in a magic shop somewhere in Oklahoma about 15 years ago. Can't remember exactly where.

On the BTC site, I get:

It's the largest diameter available.

I always use BTC 4. It's a nice thick and soft rope. Looks great on stage.
