Hi daffydoug,

Take a look at Magic Ian's "Dances With Ropes." There's several threads in the "Knots and loops" area. It uses gimmicked ropes, but will likely fool the pants off you when you see it Smile

Or, Fiber Optics. Ungimmicked ropes. I do like dances with Ropes too though.

Thanks for the tip! It figures I'm behind the times.

Hey everybody! I've just returned from the latest "leg" of my tour and have slapped some titles onto the video of "The Awakening" shot at Magic Inc. Take a look:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRf0kgnN33A

In an effort to answer all the questions that have come up here...
"The Awakening" is currently only available directly from me (PM if you're interested), uses a subtle gimmick to make the handling appear very natural, and shares the same name as Ron Dayton's book, but otherwise has no relationship to it. I guess the title must have been in my subconscious when I was trying to come up with a good name. Hopefully we can all live with a trick and a book having the same name. Anyway, hope you enjoy the vid!

That was absolutely delightful to watch. Only someone like you could take the Prof. Nightmare to a whole new dimension of astonishment. Your storytelling and brilliant humour is truly one of a kind.

PM'ed you.

I was there, I believe it was shot over my daughter's shoulder. Neat trick as you can see and only 20 bucks at the lecture.

Difficulty level?

Regarding difficulty level:
My magic "guinea pig" (her words, not mine!), who knows basically nothing about magic, was able to perform it the very first time she tried... so, I think anyone can perform "The Awakening" with confidence and success!

I'd say it's almost easier than the original Profs Moightmare

When I saw Dan do this at the lecture in Reading PA I first thought it was Dances with Ropes but then I was really caught off guard when I found out it wasn't because the method he uses no one would think of it being that simple.

Should have purchased it when you were in Reading. This is going to be a killer.

I agree, JSBLOOM, and as has been said before, both the Awakening and Hold it Buster are easy enough that you can focus on presentation.

Just on question.
Can you hand the ropes out before your start or after ?

Looks really nice Smile

I got my set yesterday. Super fast shipping from Dan. He sent them on Tuesday and I got them a day later. Well worth the price. I thought the ropes would be gimmicked in a certain way but they are not, to my surprise. There is a minor gimmick but it really just makes the handling slightly easier. It isn't really necessary though. So the ropes aren't really gimmickd per se, but you can't hand them out.

You have to PM Dan for ordering info. I've been doing versions of PN for over 20 years and this is the first really different method I've come across. Well worth what Dan is asking.

Received mine today - quick and efficient service directly from Dan - wonderful routine, original handling - amazing results! Thanks, Dan.

I'm confused. If Dan never learned the secret to this trick, as he himself states numerous times on the video, how can he possibly turn around and sell it to other people?

I'm going to be cautious with this guy and will order only one until he declares he knows how to do it.

Better to be safe than sorry, you know.
