The video explains the effect and teaches very well. I had just 2 small issues first the video was
very short with nothing on it but this one effect, and if I recall the video was only about 5
minutes long with some fill at the end. Second I was hoping that the video would bring a new method
or routine to this older effect found in many other books. If you don;t know how to do this effect
yet then by all means get this video its very easy to learn from, but it you already know the effect
then don't expect anything new or different here.

This is a very good routine with an ordinary piece of rope, everything is examinable, this trick is
completelly impromptu! You may even borrow a shoelace from someone and do it! And it is almost self
working!, Once you get the basics down, you can do this with very little practice and it can be done
at a moment's notice, this effect is very very strong and very very visual, if done right this trick
is crazy! They will really think you are throwing it inside the loop and catching it once it comes
out the other side! This trick gets very good reactions!, I have had this effect for a while now,
but it was always from books and the explanations weren't very clear. But with Jay teaching it it is
very easy to understand, he will go through each step of the routine for you and you will be doing
this after 5 minutes of watching the video! Great job Jay, you are a very good teacher and a very
good performer! I hope I can get this routine down as good as you! Anyway whether u like or don't
like rope magic, this is definitely for you! It is a very good stage, close-up and street trick, I
highly recommend you get this! ADD TO CART while the price is still very low!

This is in pretty much all of them...( such as the Wilson course) Its a cute little aside that most
of us over-looked, but still worth putting into a longer routine (I don't see it as a stand-alone
effect). Tying a knot into the rope for the second repeat is a good touch. I like to do it with a
longer rope (looks harder).
Buy this if you absolutely don't like to read...
I LOVE THIS EFFECT.VERY WELL TAUGHT.THE BEST WAY TO DO THIS I FEEL IS TO HAND A ROPE TO A SPECTATOR
AND HAVE THEM TRY AND COPY YOU WHICH THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO DO. IT BECOMES A PUZZLE MORE THAN A
MAGIC TRICK:A DO AS I DO PUZZLE.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED .GREAT PRICE.
I don't work much with ropes but this is the only one I like a lot. Extremely easy to do. In
addition, Jay's teaching is magnificent and so there are on regrets with this video. ADD TO CART
I like this trick slot! It's simple and direct, yet maintains that feeling of wonder! The only
downside to it is that a closely watching knot freak of a heckler might notice something. However
that's a million in one chance right there. Overall a great buy for a beginner, or if you feel
like showing off your skill and speed to some spectators!
This is a fun and easy to do effect. You can perform this as a competition and you always will win.
Its a great effect to teach a trick to someone interested in learning magic. I don't regret my
purchase. Add it to your cart, you will love it.
Just look at the demo... as you can see, most of the time the reaction was like, "So what?".
Teaching this as a single effect doesn't really make a whole lot of sense, since it has so little
impact. It needs to be part of a much longer routine with effects that are a whole lot more
interesting than this.
This is a very basic rope effect. By no means am I saying it's not
worth learning... it's just not worth buying as a single effect.
I admit it. I like easy tricks. This one os easy and fun to do. Take a nit of practice to make it
look smooth, but once you get it down, it's really a nice effect. Well explained in the video. More
of a close up trick. Kids like this one and find it baffling. Sometimes adults are unimpressed, but
that's their problem. :)
I like it, people have a good reaction to it. It's easy to do but it only takes like 30 seconds so
if you wanna fill some time then this is not the best one. But you are walking around at work,
sitting on a bus, or stuff like that. Then this is fun cause you can just take your own shoelace and
FUN but only for a few seconds
