Known the world over and famous for makers of magic and publishers since 1898! We have obtained, with permission, from Ms. Betty Davenport, London, England, to once again, produce this famous clever and original effect! Mental Ropes is a very magical rope effect that we are bringing back from years ago! It’s original, self-working, clever with audience participation and very entertaining!  Expertly crafted by master builder Louis Gaynor!

You show a brightly-colored wooden box, in which lies five different brightly-colored ropes. Both ends of each rope dangle outside both sides of the box. A magic wand (or similar such device), is placed cross-sectionally inside the box across from the ropes. The ends of the wand are thus sticking out of the box in full view at all times. To prevent interference, a lid is placed on top of the box covering the ropes and wand. An audience member is asked to simply select one of the colored ropes of their choice. They can change their mind if so desired as the effect plays out!

The remaining ropes that were not selected are pulled out individually. The spectator can ALSO choose which colored ropes to remove—and in what order—from the box. It’s important to highlight the control the spectator has both in choosing the colored rope they want to remain in the box, and also choosing which ropes are removed and in what order. When the lid is removed, it is revealed that the spectator’s selected rope is the ONLY one that is tied around the magic wand that’s been there from the very beginning!

Complete with cleverly designed box and rope and wand.  IMPORTANT: Please note due to changes in suppliers colors and designs of rope are subject to change without notice. The photo used here is for illustration purposes only.  Based on availability you may get different colored ropes The wand that comes with the unit is best used to help you source a wood wand or a wood crafted stick (if you want to avoid the magic wand look).  We wanted to keep the price lower on the apparatus,.

    I’ve often said that SME has products that no other shop has or can offer to the magic community. Mental Ropes is just that effect… It’s a very unique piece with a method that is just so clever that makes it unbelievable and entertaining. I’m very impressed with the craftsmanship of the item along with the original letter from Betty Davenport about the effect. Great job Shawn, Louis and Stevens for a wonderful piece of magic that you brought back to life.

    Great trick! Easy to do and works every time. Fine construction and the fact it comes with a copy of Davenports authorization makes it a worth while addition to my magic collection. Kudos all around!
