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.
