This is crazy!

Hold this length of rope at the middle. The rope hangs limp- until with a simple twist of your wrist, you make the rope stand straight out and stiff! Then, at your command and under your complete control- the rope goes limp again!

This startling effect can be repeated immediately, can be done surrounded and can be performed right under the noses of the spectators. It's eerie!!

The Stiff Rope is about 3.5 feet long, made of white cotton rope covering a flexible spine.

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS before playing with the rope, or you might damage the spine.

History and Trivia:
Magician Wesley Whitehouse introduced the concept of this trick.

Performance Ideas:

Demonstrate your "hypnotic powers" by pretending to hypnotize the rope. Command the rope to stay stiff and straight- and it does!

This is a great effect for a Halloween show. The rope can appear to have a spirit inside, that can levitate and suspend the rope.

Here's what you'll get:

  • Stiff Rope- White
  • printed instructions

And that's all you need!

Good but there is better
I really like this effect because you can do so much with it. Comedy, mystery- it depends on how you present it. There are a lot of different ways to present it. This is a good price for this rope, but the Pro rope that you sell is much better. It''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s more expensive, but I think it''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s worth it.

broke on me
3 stars cause the rope broke on me. My brother grabbed it out of my hand and bent it the wrong way. says: Sorry your rope broke. Letting someone examine any trick can easily lead to having that trick broken by mistake. We recommend not handing out props for examination. If you do, you are turning your magic into a puzzle and challenging someone to figure it out. More times than not, they will break your prop.
