I've been purchasing my rope from Hocus-Pocus for years and now they are no longer carrying the item I use for my show. It was 300' of nice double braided cotton rope. I'm having a terrible time finding a good replacement. Any suggestions? I go thru a lot, usually at least 150' per month. They now only have red and blue left in stock at HP, I use white. I believe it's about 1/4 inch. Here is a link to the other colors: https://www.hocus-pocus.com/magicshop/product_detail.cfm?item=21001

Thanks for any leads.

I'm retired, and, I have enough rope to last me.....I've not bought any thing from Baronian, but, I've heard good things about their rope.

Dick, I appreciate the link for Baronian Trading. Looks like a sampler pack is in my future.

Many thanks,

How does the Abbott rope compare with Baronianís?

Thanks,
Dan.

I don't buy rope to compare them, why don't you buy both and tell us.

Frankly, Penguin's cheaper rope is totally fine. Especially if you are using it for the c n r rope. It holds up well for my shows.
