I'm thinking of combining a couple of routines. I'd like to have a loop of rope for one portion (like Flip's routine, but with a bigger loop) that transforms into a 10 inch ring for the transition to a linking rings bit.

I have a couple of ideas on how to accomplish this, but they aren't really that good.
Any ideas?

Thanks and Best,
Jim

I don't really have any ideal but It sounds like an ideal effect to transition to the linking rings with

Ok. Done this before.
At the end of your rope routine, you also need a large . (I produced it out of a hand that the audience thought was secretly containing knots as a surprise sucker effect.) With your ring in the right hand, drape the silk over it casually as if you need your left hand free. (Preset: In/behind your table, hang your 10 inch ring laced with flash string.) In one motion, use your left hand to produce a lit match from a holdout while simeotaneously ditching the rope loop and stealing your 10 inch ring keeping it mostly hidden behind the silk. Bring the ring forward as you bring the match back and smoothly light the flash string. As the flash burns away, "produce" the ring and polish it with the silk.
OK... long description, and it boils down to nice old handmagic and misdirection, but it WORKS. Some people in the audience will swear they saw a rope turn into steel.
Play with it. See what you think. Like most "old school" stuff it really depends on body position, direction of attention, and smoothness of motion.
Hope that gives you something to play with.
