Could anybody please explain me the difference between three ropes and a baby and the professors nightmare?

I thought TRAAB and The professors nightmare where nearly the same trick. By the lack of response on my first post I suppose I am wrong. I know everything I should know about the PN. Any suggestion where I can find a description ( and or a demo ) of TRAAB?

They are not the same.

"three ropes and a baby" contains more effects (including PN)

Poesjenel,

If you like TRAAB, you'll LOVE Richard Sander's subsequent rope effect "Fiber Optics". Think of "Fiber Optics" being TRAAB on steroids. It contains all of the TRAAB moves...and then some. Plus, the "Fiber Optics" DVD has the added advantage of teaching the moves via video and, IMHO, it is a lot easier to learn than learning the TRAAB out of the manuscript.

Hope this info helps.

Hi poesjenel:

Mike is exactly right. TRAAB contains PN plus quite a few other effects. You still only use the three standard PN ropes and none of the ropes are cut, so you can use them over and over.

TRAAB is only available in booklet form - I had a hard time understanding the sequences. Fiber Optics is an improved version of TRAAB, but in DVD form - much easier to understand!

You will be very happy with Fiber Optics - I recommend you get it.

I hope this helps you.

Thank you all for your advice. I think the best thing I can do is to order the Fiber Optics dvd.

I find that MOST, not all, but MOST versions of PM are too much for the audiences to understand. I like to keep it simple. Probably the best of them all is Whit's Mongolian Pop Knots.

What is your verdict about Daryls version in his routine where he finishes with the Professors Daydream. Isn't that a beautifull way to restore the even to the uneven ropes?

Although Slydini's rope routine is very "basic" and although the ropes aren't restored at the end, it's still my favourite; I perform it for more than 20 years.
Another one I like and often use is Aldo Colombini's routine. It's not a real professor's nightmare, but it looks like one and its beauty is that the restored rope can be examined... not really necessary though if one sees mr. Haydn's Mongolian Pop Knots, quite hilarious... Smile

Nobody should want to see the ropes after the Mongolian Pop Knot. It should have been proven a real rope at the beginning. You can check out a vid of Whit's performance on his site - http://www.whithaydn.com

I like the additional phases of TRAAB. Now I'm really interested in checking out Fiber Optic Ropes to see how many other new ideas I can get using the PN ropes.

I searched for a demo of Fiber Optics and found one at elmwoodmagic -

The full routine isn't shown, but some of the moves look pretty stunning.
