Monumental dvd on the subject Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 8th, 2011
The short review :
It has been three years since I have started a career as a magician. This effect has gone with me in the past two years and man, It is THE effect I perform the most. I do it close up, stand up, for kids, teens, adults, elderly people and even mirrors! (We do need to practice after all... And I just love watching some of the slick moves myself to see what my audience sees!) I highly recommend this DVD if you care to spend the energy (many hours of practice and hundreds of hours of performance) to master this great effect which goes beyond the professor's nightmare. I have seen Tabary, David Stone's work, they are both great and I do include several of their thinkings in my work. But this is THE dvd that gave me all the tools I needed to really go out there and do it.
More comments :
I do it for kids : with nice bits of business added in of course!
I do it for teens : and they love it, real eye candy and magic.
I do it for adults : they gasp, are amazed, surprised, shocked!
With all that there is on this DVD, you have enough effects to JAZZ with the ropes. The variety of the routines you can perform with the ropes can vary in time-span, just as the ropes do! That's the magic of this DVD project : it explains in great detail, with humor and kindheartedness. Three great traits of this great performer, teacher and thinker of magic : Richard Sanders.
Must I specify that this goes way beyond the professor's nightmare? You will learn and be able to perform (with some effort involved in some types of effects which do require quite a lot of practice... such as the visual travelling ends).
Choose your rope wisely, choose the appearance of your ends : clean cut? taped? tied up? tucked-in?...
Tucked in ends tend to make people suspicious and some people think there are magnets in the ends... (of course, make the ropes examined in that case, but choose your moment for that or that will break your rhythm)
There is little reason why you would not want the EXTENDED compared to the original. If you do already own the original, there are several interesting moves that add-on to the original theory. I personally always add the bit of the ends being put back on the rope by putting them in the mouth in shows for children, makes em laugh and that just suits my style.
THANK YOU RICHARD SANDERS : You have put much care into this project, as you always have in all of your releases.
Perfect rope routine Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 8th, 2010
This is amazing. It is perfect for walk around, resets instantly and provides you with a solid routine full of magic. The 3 rope routine doesn't offer much over the 1 rope routine, so that is the one that I prefer. I also like ring and rope routines, so the added ability to turn the 1 rope routine into a ring and rope routine is cool. The routine is sectional so you can drop or add phases as you see fit with no problem. That is kind of nice because the routine Richard Sanders shows has repetitive points. All in all though this is solid magic that is easy to perform.
Best rope routines I've seen Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 14th, 2012
I wanted to learn some rope routines and boy did I pick the right dvd. The routines on this dvd really are jaw dropping. Richard really cares about teaching you the routines and you can tell. He goes over some of the moves 5-6 times with different angles to make sure you understand what is happening. If your new to rope magic this is a great dvd to get beacause a lot of the moves are easy. If you are a pro at rope magic this is a great dvd to get because so many of the moves are modular and could fit into rope routines you already do. This dvd is an investment....add to cart now!

It's been 3 months since owning fiber optic extended, I truly enjoy it. as a street performer, it packs small and it plays big. second reason I like it is that you can shorten or lengthen the routine according to your audiences attention span, third reason you can use it as part of your act or it can be an act all of its own. And finally your uses for fiber optic extended in your own act is only limited by your own imagination. The effect is easily attainable to any experience level in magic even if this is your first effect you have ever bought or learned. It will take practice practice and more practice but name one trick that doesnt if you want to perform it flawlessly.
Even the svengali deck requires some form of practice so in that regard if you are afraid of a little practice then dont get it but if your ready to invest the time in the effect and yourself then you wont regret it.
packs small, plays HUGE!!!! Report this review

WARNING:( What you are about to read AIN'T hyperbole by no means!)
WOW!!! Is the reaction I get each and every time I perform this gem. I've performed it on the street, in clubs, all my paid gigs. It never fails to astound. I will never perform the professor's nightmare again! Richards teaching on this is unbelievably thorough. With special attention to performance and nuances of presentation. Plus this dvd has more moves than ex-lax. With such a vast resource of moves you're able to pick and choose the ones that compliment your style and personality. Hypering!!... is well...uhhh....off da rope? This is more than just another rope effect! This is an exciting magical journey for us to share with our audience!.... Buy...and see the reactions for yourself.
Eye popping Rope Magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
Richard describes some of the reactions he gets performing this and they matched up to my reactions when I first saw some of these moves. This DVD really does contain some material that will make you bug eyed.
Richard starts with a collection of slightly varying performances then goes through each of the moves step by step. He repeats each move from multiple views (mostly just by turning around).
And of course the 'Extended' on this DVD means it now comes with another addition to the Routine called Hyper Ring. Again with a few performances and then step by step going through all the moves.
Slight niggles, Richard has a weird presenting style, it's like he thinks he has to be 'on' all the time, but he's not actually funny. And a second over the should camera might have helped. But this are so minor that they weren't worth taking a star away.
A fantastic addition to any Magic Library

If you are new to rope magic, then this DVD is for you. The routine is absolutely phenomenal. You learn things such as equal/unequal ropes, moving knot, and the most impressive cut and restored rope. The way that it's taught is very good, and easy to understand. The moves are very natural. Just watch the video and if you're blown away, just think how the spectators will react. Add to Cart now.
At the end of your rope with box magic than GET THIS 5 STAR Routine. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 10th, 2016
A fantastic DVD. JUST GET IT IF U WANT MORE SHOWS. This is one of the f/x or routines that get talked about for a long time. I have always had great reactions from Richard Sanders magic. He always give a lot for the money and the dvd instructions are ALWAYS well done, detailed, and lengthy.
I always have rope 2 perform at a moments notice. Great for stage, close-up, and outside events. I have gotten several shows after performing my rope routine. I will admit and only use some of his routine, some or Daryl's variations, Sands, and several of my own because I want 2 have part of me in this masterpiece routine. A true working professional values the IMPACT that magic that is ORGANIC is closer 2 real magic. 5 STAR Routine.

I highly recommend this trick.
Its not hard to do. It does take some practice to get the flow smooth. It's a very visual effect that can be used both in close up and stage magic.
Literally one of the best tricks, you will get great reactions from this trick!
Buy it, highly recommended!
Workable Routines, but... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 2nd, 2014
I have been doing the three rope routine for over 30 years and pretty much followed Slydini's presentation. Richard Sanders provides numerous techniques to expand the routine, and he is an excellent teacher. If you don't already do the three rope routine, this DVD is an excellent way to learn all the moves. If you already do the three rope routine, you may not find enough additional material to justify the price. Unfortunately, that is how I felt. After going through the entire DVD, I think it is over priced for what you are getting.
