How are the production values: You get one live performance (on stage) with no edits and then the rest of the video is shot in a library setting.
Is it well made: Baronian rope is the # 1 rope preferred by most magicians, it’s durable, soft and will last you a long time with good care
Is it well taught: Yes Nick Lewin goes over every inch of this routine. This is the classic Pat Conway “rope trick” (using the same ropes as Professor’s Nightmare)
Storage? Does it "pack flat?" All you need is the three ropes provided and an audience.
Does it "play big?" the rope trick is a “classic” of magic – easily in the top 10. Every stage magician should learn at least ONE rope trick. Why not make it this one?
Difficulty / Skill level required: There is nothing extensive or hard about this. Very simple to do – no cutting, sleights or difficult knots.
How much arts and crafts are involved? zero
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) Absolutely
Overall score: let's toss out the traditional score of 1-10 and make this something that we all can appreciate and understand.
