TRI COLOUR NIGHTMARE +

This is my best trick! I invented it in 1984 and has sold many, many hundreds over the years, it is always a hit at magic conventions. I have liking for doing "ungimmicked versions" of tricks, that are normally performed using gimmicks. This one of those.
Two effects:

  1. PROFESSORS NIGHTMARE IN COLOR
    You show thre unequal ropes, one is red, one is blue and one is yellow, counting them from hand to hand. With one simple tug, you make the ropes equal!
  2. LINKING ROPES
    Two spectators each choose a rope and you take the remaining one and you all tie a knot in the rope making a circle, a ring of rope. You gather the three rope rings in your and try to pull them a part, but they are linked to each other! The ropes are real, the knots are real and everything can be examined.
No magnets, no extra pieces of rope, NO GIMMICKS! Only knowledge is used. You receive three ropes in different colours, an illustrated instruction PLUS a dvd showing the effect and in detail, step by step, teaching you how to setup and perform the effect.

Bonus effect: ORDER OF YOUR THOUGHT
The spectator may tie the ropes in any order he likes, formig a long rope. You have a red handkerchief visible in your breast pocket.You pull out the handkerchief and there are two more handkerchiefs, all three in the same colours as the ropes, and tied to each other in the same order as the ropes. For this bonus effect you can use your own silks (not included).

You can perform on, two or all three effects in a sequence. Easy to learn!

Invented?

The best part of this trick, the linking of three loops of coloured rope, was invented and lectured by John Palfreyman. It may be your best trick but you didn't invent it in 1984 or any other year. I hope John Palfreyman has benefited from the sales of many hundreds!
Answer from the shop:
I never claimed that I invented the knot used for the rope linking. This is how I describe the history of the trick in the instructions:

"HISTORY
When I first invented this effect in 1984 I had been shown the special knot involved in the linking by an East German magician (sorrry but I have forgotten his name) and at another occasion by Italy’s Aldo Colombini (who was known as Fabian at that time). Many years later John Palfreyman of Great Britain showed me the knot and claimed that he was the one who introduced the knot into magic in the 1950-ies. He told me, he learnt to do the knot as a Boy Scout, the knot being used to tie up boats, the slip knot allowing the boat to go out with the tide. This is how I learnt the Linking Rope Knot and I made a routine that started with my own version of Professors Nightmare, using 3 differently coloured un-gimmicked ropes."

I have discussed credits with both John Palfreyman and Aldo Colombini and they both are happy with the above description and have no objections to me marketing this effect with the above credits.

Angles

Can this be done surrounded by spectators?
Answer from the shop:
Yes.

Thanks for the information

Will order soon!

question

I think this looks very good and am thinking of buying it do you use the classic move in your routine or is it completely different?
Answer from the shop:
This routine uses a couple of new and classic moves, usually not associated with Professors Nightmare and Linking Ropes.
