The magician displays a small length of rope about a foot long or so. He talks about the famous East Indian Rope Trick as he wraps a couple of inches of the rope around his first and second fingers. Standing the rope upright, he let’s go of the rope top and the rope remains taught and upright like a telephone pole! Maybe its just a “stiff rope” surmises the audience. Great explanation until the magician rubs his hand upward along the rope and the rope turns into a silk handkerchief! This little gem has been around for a long time and this version from Italy is one of the best we have ever seen. Resets quickly and is easy to do. 065RUMROPESIL12
