I am looking for either a good book or video for Rope Magic. What I'm mainly looking for is cut and restore and where you tie the rope around you and have two people pull the rope through you.

Abbott's has published the ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ROPE TRICKS" years ago. (before rope was invented) hee hee Abbott's (Colon, MI phone 1 269 432 3235)

Tell Greg Bordner, owner, what you are looking for. To pull a rope THRU you. you would, most likely, need to use the "Grandmother's Necklace" principle. I'm sure that it's in that book.

Down the road....

Abbot's is a steal any time because Dover got a hold of it and made a budget paperback out of it.

And it's even more of a steal because I see Thriftbooks has it for $3.99! I's snap that up...

You might want to check out The Wiz Kids DVD called simply "Rope Magic." It has the tricks you inquired about, plus more. All proceeds go to the non-profit (501-c-3)organization. http://wizkidzinc.com/DVDs/rope01/wizkidsROPE01.htm

Abbott's for a book and Daryl's three DVD set. Between those you have more than you'll ever need.

Yes! Daryl was a dear friend. We met when we both were working the Castle in '79. He was an excellent teacher.

"Stewart James' Encyclopedia of Rope Tricks" is very comprehensive. Definitely a "go to" resource.
