Ray and Alan I am familiar with the ungimmicked methods you use. They are not all that... all that clean. Just rope puzzles. why not make a clean open no joints, one rope restoration. Then go on and hand it out and give it to the audience?
The commercial versions given, are as I noted, fairly junky. It would be better yet just to do an uncomfortable and quick and hectic "ungimmicked quickie version."

But if these work for you, God bless you. I just keep going until what I do gets gasps and I am accused of being a sorcerer, etc. I am not content to entertain or to fool, like puzzles do as well.


Unless you've seen mine in person (which certainly is possible) I'm not sure how familiar you are with it. I'll continue to use it as it gets the prerequisite gasps I want and elevates it from a "puzzle" (which I'll admit that some routines are) to real magic according to the reports from the viewers who have seen it. As always... presentation and psychology is everything.

Thanks Ray. You are now fully a member of the secret MC sorcerers hall of fame. Because as you said, it is the reactions you get that make it true magic in their minds. I take back what I said. I trust your word because you know from your performances what is magic in their minds. So cheers to you!!! You are awesome and your effect is hidden from most magicians. Maybe that is the best way to keep a miracle your own. hehe.

You haven't seen them performed properly. Nick Lewin really sold me on the Pat Conway handling, when I saw him perform it.
