I didn't find very much doing a search. (2005 was the last post I believe.)

Is anyone using this? What are you views on it?
Thanks

Do you mean Clair Cummings' Idiot Rope Trick? I used it maybe 20 years ago and for what it is it is fine as a finishing gag to a rope routine.

I use to do this all time in my rope routine. It is still available from Magic Inc., it is only a printed manuscript.

http://www.magicinc.net/idiotropetrick.aspx

I no longer have the instructions, but as I remember Bob Lewis's name was originally associated on this version.

To be honest, I never got a whole lot out of it as presented in the instructions. Now, many years later, I think it would have been a little more successful with some patter jokes. I did present it a dozen times or so.

I like the pop off knot so much, that I never returned to this trick to work on it.

Maybe the OP is referring to another trick by the same name.

They only show the performance of Insomnia and Idiot Rope Trick on Bob's DVD. He points out that they are commercial effects.
