Hi all! Two quick questions on Fiber Optics:

1) It looks as though the rope that he uses is NOT cored, can anyone please confirm this, (and whether it matters), because...
2) I cannot get the gravity move when the ends are slid down the rope to work, and am wondering whether this is due to the fact that I use standard magicians cored rope, which is maybe too "flat" for the move.

P.S. I cannot find any suppliers of Camirand rope in the UK, so will have to rely on UK magicians rope, or sailing rope perhaps, (depending on the answer to 1). Thanks people, (and yes, this is a GREAT DVD...)

Rgds - Bruce

I believe it is Camirand rope Richard uses on the video. He pushes it at the end of the DVD and gives the www.address. It also looks just like mine. I just got it from Camirand a day or two ago. It says in the description of the rope package it is "manufactured in Europe and imported by us because, quite simply nothing comparable can be found in North America." Just check around.

OK well I placed the order for this DVD so I'll be waiting for it. Also, other than Camirand's rope, where is a good place to get rope to do numerous rope effect given that I would have to cut the rope myself but I'm looking for enough rope to do this Fiber optics effect, Tabary routines and a rope escape? I guess I'm just looking for a lot of rope. Any one know?

OK well that post confused me a little bit. Are you saying that fiber optics will make me not want to perform and Tabary or does fiber optcics come with rope?

I haven't had the pleasure of viewing the Fiber Optics DVD. Richard Sander's is great, I use to perform his 3 ropes and a baby for years. What I ment about Tabary is that his routines do not require you to cut any ropes at all. In his routine you are seen to cut the rope but it is an illussion. Tabary's rope effect isn't something for the beginner. The effect (and yes, I perform it) is fantastic!
I learned it from his DVD but just got his new book three days ago. I am now re-working a few moves that were giving me a little trouble. The new book shows every move in illustration and the written word takes you into his view and development of the entire routine. I spent the entire night reading and studing the book and IT ROCKS! As I said before, Richard Sander's stuff is great but my personal choice is still Tabary's DVD and his NEW book.
Hope that helps a little.
Magically,
Ken Winters

Oh, ok. I get what you're saying. No, I knew that. I also have his VHS tapes. What I meant by the cut stuff is that I am looking for enough rope to be able to cut the parts I need for Fiber optics and still have enough left over for Tabary's Routine.

Daryl at http://www.foolerdoolers.com has to be some of the best rope I've used. It's already cored and has a luxurious feel to it. He sells it in bundles of 12ish feet for 6 bucks. .50 a foot, but as long as you're not doing cut and restored effects, you'll love his rope.

Fiber Optics is an excellent rope routine. This is one of those things that even fools magicians. Richard was showing off, and owned us all at the Art of Sleight of Hand Convention. Everyones' jaws were literally on the floor. Highly recommended!!

Hello:

The Fun, Inc. rope that Denny sells is excellent. It's the same size as the Elite rope, but a little softer, which I like better. It's brilliant white, just like the Elite rope. If anyone has Paul Green's DVD, you'll see him using the Fun Inc rope for his rope routine.

Denny is the only one I know of who sells it...and he always runs out of it quickly.

Sanders is a god. All his DVDs are excellent and Fibre optics is no exception. Very commercial stuff.

I personally enjoy performing Richard Sander's Fiber Optics to audiences and this is one of the most requested rope effects. Richard is an excellent teacher and he has a great sense of humor! In Fiber Optics, Richard integrated many different rope effects for the Fiber Optics routine. I think once you learn the moves, you are to pick up ropes and perform it naturally. I use the deluxe magician's rope at Penguin Magic and the rope is super white with soft texture. However, I think you can get some nice white ropes from Daryl's website and MJM Magic webstore.

Some of the moves don't work well 'together' IMO. e.g. starting with professor's nightmare and showing a long rope and a short rope sort of telegraphs later on what the pieces involved are to anyone who thinks about it.


I agree with Nicholas here. The Prof's Nightmare and the "middle/ends" transpositions are both great routines, but when they are combined, the method can be easily deduced by a logical person. It's an excellent DVD, but I prefer the "one rope routine" and I save the Prof's Nightmare for a different show.

Best regards,

Intellectually you may be correct, but really this routine flows so nice that they don't have a chance to intellectualize the process, because they are so amazed by the magic.

I do this all the time (3 rope version) and always get a great reaction with no telegraphing of the underlying method.

Can anyone tell me how this compares to Tabary's FISM act?
So far I've read easier, quicker.
I meant routine wise, not how they teach.
thanks.

Just picked up Richard's DVD. Great stuff. I've only watched about half of it. Does anyone know how he finishes the ends of his rope?

I got this dvd not so long ago,although I haven't started work on it yet I agree with one of the posts above in that I prefer to keep the professors nightmare as a routine on its own and plan on working on the one rope routine as a seperate routine.
