“In my opinion, Daryl is one of the smoothest and (most) entertaining close-up performers I have ever witnessed.” –Dai Vernon

“Daryl is truly entertaining, highly skilled, and too smart for his own damn good.” –Phil Goldstein

“One of the most inimitable, charismatic performers of our time. Such enthusiasm, combined with carefully selected, powerful effects, provides knowledgeable magicians as well as laymen a rare glimpse at a deceptive, delightful, portable Disneyland.” –Michael Ammar

"Daryl has managed to avoid the holier than thou attitude that seems so prevalent among the “stars” of magic.” –Paul Harris

“Truly beautiful magic.” –John Cornelius

“Daryl was funny, Daryl was serious, Daryl was one of the nicest, most polite and professional lecturers that we have ever had the pleasure of hosting. I highly recommend that anyone who can see Daryl’s lecture, do so.” –The Linking Ring World Champion magician, Daryl, is known by his peers around the globe as “The Magician’s Magician” because he represents the best of the best in the highly specialized world of close-up magic. Daryl was voted by readers of MAGIC Magazine as one of the top ten most influential magicians of the twentieth century! Daryl’s sleight of hand technique is flawless, his magic is original and astonishing and his presentations are hilariously entertaining! Daryl has earned just about every major magic award imaginable including a gold medal at the F.I.S.M. World Congress of Magic (which is equivalent to the “Olympics” of magic) and SIX Academy Awards from the world famous Academy of Magical Arts (The Magic Castle) in Hollywood, California!

In 1999 and 2000 Daryl’s New Millennium World Tour saw him performing and teaching his original creations in more than 250 cities, in 25 different countries. But Daryl says “One of the greatest honors of my career was to be selected to perform for the President’s Inaugural Candlelight Dinner in Washington D.C.” Daryl was also a resident headlining act at Caesars Magical Empire at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for seven years, before settling in the Sierra Foothills of Northern California. Daryl now concentrates on performing for select private and corporate functions, producing and marketing his original magical creations and instructional DVDs and providing personalized tuition to magicians and magic enthusiasts around the world.

What can I say it's Daryl, DARYL the F.I.S.M. champ and he shares his pet routine with you. Not only do you see a full near 10 minute performance of it but you get almost a full hour of expert instruction. He covers it all, the size of the ropes, how to finish the ends, everything. The best part, Daryl's visual aids make it easy to follow along. Some may say that, "It's just Professors Nightmare." and those people are missing out on what could be a killer routine with proper practice, study, and adjustment to fit character. So if you like Daryl's Rope Routine already, get this, if you want to learn a routine that packs small and plays big, get this, or if you just enjoy great magic done well, get Daryl's Rope Routine.

Didn't help me much Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 24th, 2015
I love Daryl's dvds. They have taught me a lot. I didn't get much out of this item though. I don't do well with written explanations of tricks. For me the pictures are too small to be useful.

The most magic for the money! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 10th, 2017
The download was easy and Daryl did a great job in teaching one of his signature pieces. It took me a solid week to begin to get it to muscle memory. I am know working on putting my own patter to it...as you should do. Once done, you have 10 minutes of a pack small-play big gem. R.I.P. Daryl. BTW, his exact handling pretty much requires Daryl's Thick Rope, still available at Daryl.net.

Daryls rope routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 25th, 2015
This is a wonderful routine from start to finish. My only gripe would be is that the rope must be exactly the same as he uses in order to do all parts of the routine , and he tells you that but doesn't go into details of where to get hold of it. I can only find loose braided hollow cotton Anne he says it should be tight braided quite heavy and cotton. So there we are If any of you out there know where to get hold of this and what it's called do please pass it on to me.

Fantastic routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 19th, 2019
First of all, RIP Daryl! You are a truly missed genius.

The routine is very strong and entertaining and I absolutely LOVE IT!! Not too complex and Daryl’s explanation is easy to follow and clear. Great advice on rope selections, pacing, presentation, and things to add or remove to spice up and personalize YOUR routine.

My only addition would be diagrams or photos on written instructions that can be used during practice so as not to be tied only to the video. Not a deal-breaker by ANY means; just would be helpful.

Excellent Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 29th, 2018
Many years back I bought the pamphlet-and-pictures version of this routine, and performed it in my shows. Years later I bought the Expert Rope Magic DVDs, and was glad to see the explanations on the DVD.

Much more recently I saw the Penguin Live lecture, and while he presented the routine there as well, it didn't go into enough depth.

I just got this download. I felt silly because I already had two good versions, and I already knew the routine.

After having watched this through, I feel that the depth and teaching in this version was best of all. He went into several little details that made a big difference. My only gripe is that the lighting could have been better in the studio, but as a fan of the routine and of all things Daryl, this is the best version.

Darly’s Rope Routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 27th, 2018
I met Daryl years ago at a Las Vegas magic convention. Such a nice man and a great loss to magic. I watched his routine and he puts a lot of thought into his routine that makes it way better than the usual routine. It will take some time to work on all the extra moves he uses but will be well worth it. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys watching classic and well thought out rope tricks. His personality makes it so much better as well. The rope used isn’t easy to find. I’ve been looking but can’t seem to find the bright white soft cotton rope he used in the routine. If you know where it can be bought I would like to know. Buy this routine you won’t be disappointed at all. It is well worth the price you pay.

Excellent subtle touches Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 18th, 2016
Daryl's rope routine is full of different types of rope magic. Daryl's thorough teaching with excellent subtle touches make it fun and provides insights into general magic technique that can be applied elsewhere. This is the type of magic I personally enjoy learning and performing. Although not difficult it will take time to refine to take advantage of the subtle touches shared. Thank you Daryl for sharing this wonderful routine.
