More visible than standard magician's rope for stage or street performances, lends itself to some extra jokes and avoids the bondage connotations that white or black rope might suggest to post-fifty-shades audiences. Excellent quality for the price. As with all magician's rope, it will fray unless you use one of the techniques to prevent that - wrap a collar of sticky tape around ends before cutting, or use a pencil to push them inside out after cutting. I have not yet tried and cannot recommend the other technique of lightly burning the ends (with this supply). I paid a surprisingly low price for this hank of 50 feet and will expect to buy from this seller (Loftus) again.
