Odd Rope Illusion

Odd Rope Illusion – Stage Size

Odd Rope Illusion is a very mystifying effect that will entertain all ages.

The Magician presents three ropes to the audience and, in fact, is able to pass them out for examination.

The ropes are shown as simply three ropes, of different lengths with no gimmicks, joins etc etc.

After receiving the ropes back following inspection, the Magician clearly places each rope in his hand with all ropes sections/ends etc remaining in clear view to the audience.

After a suitable, pass, a magic word or similar from the Magician and/or the Audience, the three ropes are then shown to have morphed to now being three ropes of identical length.

The magician shows to the audience how each rope is now the same length.

From here the Magician can then restore the ropes back to their original size.

Now the ropes can again be freely passed out for examination.

The ropes provided are in a set of three ropes.

The ropes are high-quality cotton ropes and available in White Magicians Rope with Blue Tips or Blue Ropes with White Tips

Block Through Rope

Block Through Rope

Block Through Rope is from an original idea of 1941.

There have been many “Block Off Rope” effects based on a similar principle. This is a wonderful effect to add to any magic show and I personally use one in most of my shows.

This fun effect is suitable for all ages.

In summary a Solid Block of Wood and a length of rope are freely shown and can also be examined.

The piece of rope is clearly passed in through one side of the block and out the other side. The rope is passed again back to the start and an end passed through again to “lock” the block onto the rope.

There is now a solid block of wood secured to a length of rope.

The rope ends are now pulled apart…This can be even be by a spectator…. and the block is suddenly free of the rope.

For those wishing to make their own magic snapper.

Here is a fully detailed 7 page PDF manual that shows all steps required with coloured photos and full descriptions

Magic Snapper Magic Trick Instruction Manual

For those unfamiliar with a Magic Snapper, the snapper consists of two parts.

The first part is wooden section that is effectively hollow.

There is a rubber band protruding from one end.

The second part has a conical shaped end with a round section of dowel with a notch cut out at the end.

The performer holds the “Body” part, approx. horizontal, in one hand whilst holding the “Head” part in the other hand. The “shaft” of the “Head” part is then introduced into the “Body” part. The performer appears to “hook” the “shaft” onto the rubber band inside the “Body” part and as the “Head” part is withdrawn it flies out from the finger tips as it “snaps” into the “Body”

Magic Change Bag

Change Bag

The Magic Change Bag is a classic prop used by magicians to make objects appear / disappear and / or change their colour and shape.

The “Change Bag” is able to be turned inside out to present as empty.

In addition,  the Change Bag we offer has a zippered base to enable you to open the zip and pass your hand through to also demonstrate the appearance of being empty.

The “Change bag” is a standard inclusion in my magic shows as it really is a most versatile piece of magical equipment.
