I have seen Bob do it, I have seen the video and I bought it. Still in rehearsal stage, but it is TERRIFIC.

If you saw the tv special with Sheets doing it on the street, you can see what a srong piece this can be.

Hmmm, makes me think you could have the rope go through your body and your birdcage vanish at the same time. :D :D

Funny Pete!

If I was going to do that, do you think it would be over-kill to swallow a sword or something at the same time?

Swallow the sword and cut/restore the rope at same time...

BELIEVE IT OR NOT.... I do a "shot and restored rope combined with a bullet catch!"

Hold rope up in front of my face, spectator fires a bullet, rope comes apart, I catch and spit out a bullet, then visibly restore the rope (Neff method).
Stay tooned.

Stay away from it. It's a ripoff and the effect is lousy. Don't even think about using it! Just let we few misguided miscreants keep it in our tawdry acts. --Asrah :p

Too late. Got it today. But I don't understand. This video actually has multiple methods, quality entertainment, and tons of stuff one may use...

Isn't Sheets breaking some laws and/magic ethics here? I'm not quite sure how to handle a quality magic video.

You can get it from Mr. Sheets himself or Denny & Lee. I believe it's exclusive with Denny. --Asrah

I've owned and performed "Hang 'Em High" for quite a few years and always loved it. When the video came out, I purchased it because I wanted to see Bob's exact handling of it. It's definitely a great trick (IMHO) Seeing his handling helped me to improve and add a few touches.
I recommend it.

If you are lucky enough to know Mel Lambdin then youll know what I mean when I say this guy is creative, entertaining, and it is like real magic just being around him Mel Lambdin has been performing magic for... well lets just say more than 60 years During a recent visit to our shop Mel mentioned an idea for his Rope through Body that is not only totally new (well he has been using for the past 10 years) but it is also very practical, entertaining and very good. We sat down for about an three or four hours discussing minor adjustments to make it even better We now have full rights to release his version Obviously I would like to make a sale, but more importantly I think Mel hit on something really cool that could make this the perfect, practical, anywhere/anytime illusion and he deserves some recognition. Write me privately and Ill fill you in without giving away too much all I will say is you wont be sorry!

Thanks,

Ken
