Dan that's a great answer...no probs with the size of the rope..was just wondering. I still keep going over to the ropes to do it for myself..it is fun...and the changes are lightening fast...well done for a strong simple routine.

The similarity between the awakening, and dances with ropes is odd.

I totally disagree!! The only similarity is they both are like the professors nightmare in so you are changing the length of ropes, the mechanics and handling of both are very different.

No one said it would be easy, or did they?

Got this from Dan just a couple of weeks ago. AWESOME. Did it for our local Ring this past weekend and they loved it. Contact Dan and have him send you the notes TODAY!

I also have Dances with Ropes. LOVE IT TOO. Heck, I just like the PN premise. Go ahead and get Dances with Ropes too.

Both Dan and Magic Ian are so very creative and a treasure to the magic community. Thanks you two.

All the best,
Dorian

Good news! I recently had the pleasure of performing in Raleigh, NC with Jeff McBride at an event where I also had the good fortune to have Phil Wilmarth in attendance at my lecture. Phil, in addition to being a past President of the IBM, also OWNS THE RIGHTS to the original "Professor's Nightmare!" Pretty cool, right? Well, he told me that "The Awakening" is a great improvement and he gives it his full blessing! Sweet! Thanks Phil!

I've had mine for a few weeks now, and I am so happy that I ordered this from Dan Harlan. This is by far the coolest looking illusion with three unequal ropes that I have come across. I am honored to be allowed to perform this masterpiece.

I will be officially performing it for the first time July 16 at a wedding reception I am booked for.

I thought Phil owned the rights to Hen Fetchs "Quadropelets", not Professors nightmare?

From what he said, I've got the impression he owns both!

I remember reading that Phil Wilmarth obtained the rights to all the Hen Fetsch's rope effects and Professor Nitemare. But as so many times happens, they do little of nothing with them, I do remember the article said you could obtain Professor Nitemare and another effect from Phil Wilmarth and that was about it.

He never ran an advertisment (to my knowledge) for the products in any of the popular magic magazines, only read he was selling 2 effects of Fetsch's in a review article once. Never seen that a dealer is handling the products or selling the original versions.

Thus he is the proud owner of the rights, but what does that mean to someone that will not put the products out for sale. I purchased the book Fetsching Magic, hoping that the the complete Professor Nitemare Routine would be found therein, but to my surprise it was not even mentioned in the book. So my thoughts that maybe it was Hen Fetsch's patter was possibly mistaken.

Wmhegbli, you must have read that article a LONG time ago....

As Ted states above I do own the rights to Quadropelets, as well as a number of other Hen Fetsch items. I purchased them from Phil Willmarth and we have been producing Quadropelets since 2003. In that same year we ran several full page ads for the effect in Magic Magazine and Linking Ring.

You can find the item here:

Thanks for the update, Paul Richards, and that is great you obtained the rights and is actually doing something with them. I wish you all the best in sales and suppling a classic for the magic society.

Yes, it was a very long time ago, I think it was while he was President of the IBM.

Think you can find the guy who purchased the Russ Walsh items and start making them for the magic society. I need another Acrobatic Golf Club and Multiplying Tees. Also, Sam Berlands son was to do something with his products but never did, and Warren Stephans products were suppose to be taken over by George Kemmery, but I do not see them anywhere.

How hard wearing are the ropes? If the gimmick is in the ropes (as I suspect it is), can it be transferred easily?

Doesn't that depend on how often you present the effect. If you are like most magicians, then it will last you a lifetime, because you will get it learn it and show it to your family, then a few friends and then put it in a drawer were it will set until you sell it or die.

At the very good price, if you are a professional performing regularly, you should by at least 2, if you do more shows then you should by several. Hope this helps with our question.

Hi wmhegbli,

You could easily replace the gimmick instead of buying several.

Steve you are correct, but as I browse the Café, I find many on the Café are not craft-y at all. They refuse to cut a piece of paper or rope, and glue 2 cards together. That is okay, it just helps the economy.

I recently found when performing the cut and restored rope, I may have to stop performing the effect. I am finding out new generations of people do not know how to use a simple pair of scissors. They cannot cut a loop of rope. I find that very sad, but it is true and when a whole generation cannot even use scissors.

I have even ask for spectators that know how to use scissors and every time the jam the rope between the blades. I have purchased new scissors and they still manage to jam them.

This might be good for magicians but it tips professors nightmare.
I wouldn't be doing this for the public.

I really do not get how this tips PN. And if you feel so then leave that part out of the routine and script your own as I have. Although I did leave that in my script I like it.
