Tabary's innovative effects, methods, and techniques are unsurpassed in the realm of rope magic. He has elevated rope magic to such a high level it now takes on an elegant artistry that no one else has ever achieved.

In VOLUME 1, Tabary performs and explains his world-famous Rope Act--the one that earned him the title of World Champion. This act has received standing ovations all over the world, and he now explains how to do it in every minute detail.

Explaining his techniques as well as the subtle nuances of rope magic. Tabary teaches you step-by-step this eye-popping, show-stopping routine.

In VOLUME 2, Tabary continues to elevate the art of rope magic on this second volume of incredible rope magic. Featuring four outstanding routines, Tabary explains each in every detail. Two of the routines deal with knots appearing and vanishing from ropes; this is rope magic like you have never seen it before.

The highlight of this DVD is a brand-new, never-before-released rope routine that you - simply won't believe - it takes rope magic even further than the rope routine described on Volume 1.

Once again, Tabary holds nothing back in teaching you every detail. You simply won't believe your eyes. Then Tabary performs and explains a multi-phase Ring & Rope routine that is absolutely incredible; once again Tabary smashes the boundaries of previous work in this area.

Rope magic is great – and Tabary's is the best! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 11th, 2005
Rope magic is probably my favorite type of magic – even over cards. It is inherently visual, quite mysterious, and often fairly easy to master. You hardly need any patter, because rope is just so simple and visual. Look at Tabary, who won first place with this routine in a worldwide competition, and he hardly needs to speak at all to blow everyone away.

Tabary's effects are not only mind-blowing, but very neat and tidy for the magician. You typically end up in the same setup as you started, so you're ready to do another effect. All of the effects in the first volume's routine (and many from the second) use the same setup, so it's very easy to string together whatever you'd like, and everything stays clean and perfectly in order.

The routine on the first volume is more than worth the price of the DVD. It's Tabary's first-place rope routine, and it's unbelievable. The DVD has a live performance in front of an audience, and watching Tabary do his stuff leaves your brain hurting.

The other routines are also very good, though not quite as phenomenal, and at the very least provide extra effects to string into whatever routine you create.

The moves Tabary teaches (he claims there are only three, but that's not quite true) are relatively easy. Practice is necessary, of course, but magic that doesn't require practice usually sucks. This does not suck. Rather, it's amazing.

Tabary teaches the tricks nicely, going slowly with different colored ropes. I sometimes wished he spoke a bit more English so he could explain things just a little more (he really only uses a few words), but the visual is generally enough.

In short, I give this DVD a high recommendation.

impossible, magical, and fun Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 13th, 2005
Tabary is amazing. The magic here is the best I've seen ever in my life. It's very simple, interesting for the magician, and this will fool quite a few magicians. Not only is it mind boggling, but it also looks good. If you were a real magician, doing real magic, this is what it would look like. Also, there is so much room for comedy in this act, though Tabary doesn't take full advantage of that because of his limited English.
That said, the instructions, when listened to, are horrid. But it doesn't really matter, because he shows things repeatedly from different angles, and with different colored ropes. Maybe if you're just starting out this isn't the best because of the not so perfect instructions, but if it's not your first DVD, go for it! This is really amazing, It's the last word on rope magic. The only trouble I'm having is making sure my act doesn't just turn into a rope act. It is very easy to transition between the tricks, since they, in general, start and end the same (with sleight modifications which is even better for the audience).

Simply wonderful.

Genius Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 9th, 2010
Tabary is a rope genius. His material is incredible. If all you know is the basic cut and restored rope, then you don't know rope magic. I remember first seeing Tabary on World's Greatest Magic 4. I was blown away. This routine is not out of the grasp of the average magician, but it is complex. There is a lot of remember and it can get confusing at first, but once you have it down you will have a solid piece magic that is truly packs small, plays big.

Disc 2 will add a variety of other rope routines to your arsenal. There is an incredible knot routine, a 3 rope routine and my favorite, the ring and rope routine. I was amazed by the stuff he does that I hadn't seen yet.

Over all this is a solid set of closeup dvds that you won't regret adding to your collection.

beautiful, mind-boggling, concise Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 13th, 2013
Tabary's instructions are concise, detailed and comprehensive: they provide all that a learner requires to replicate the routine, using some of Tabary's style.(I find Tabary's style to be gracious...which excites me!).

Some learners who use this DVD find Tabary's pronunciation difficult to follow: if you are intolerant of foreign accents you may not be able to use it to learn from Tabary.

The words Tabary uses are, of course, supplemented with camera descriptions. I found these to be excellent...the viewer is clearly SHOWN how and where to handle the rope/s at all times. Each step of each routine is clearly and unambiguously shown (several times)and verbally described.

I found this to be a first class teaching/learning DVD; and excellent value for money.

rope and ring magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 24th, 2012
It is good, but to be honest it will take a lot of practice and time to learn. I am interested in the ring and rope effect, but it is taking me alot of time to learn it, there are a couple other rope effects I like to, they to takes the time and patience to learn. It is not one that you will learn easy, it is worth the money and time to learn.

still my favourite rope routine Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 4th, 2010
why do a cut and restored rope and stop there? Learn a rope routine from Tabary and you have a complete rope routine. I learnt this years ago when I was only 14. Anyone can learn these routines and I don't even have to say that they are very impressive! If you want to get into rope stuff, this is it. Having a video tutorial really aids in the learning process especially when dealing with rope

The Best Rope Guy in the World Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 7th, 2010
He can be a bit hard to understand in spots but if you stick with it you will have a routine you will use for a very long time. Tabary is the best when it comes to rope. If you buy these seperatley you will wish you had them both so get them both and know that you are getting some great material. I use stuff from these in every show almost without exception. Practice will be required to make your routine smooth. Good value for your money.

Kick it up a Notch Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 8th, 2004
So you are tired of the same old thing, card and coin tricks. That ACR routine is getting old? Kickstart your magic with some rope. You can do it on a moments notice, at home, on the street, just about anywhere. You can take parts of his different routines and make your own. Material is presented in a very clear manner. Tabary goes over every move in great detail, nothing is left out, ensuring your success. The various effects he performs on both DVD's are mind boggling. Highly Recommended, especially if you do any stage or kids shows. Killer material. I have got nothing but blank stares and gaping mouths, and that is just with part of his routine.
It will take time to master, but is not difficult at all. Even a beginner could be performing this in short order.
