OriginEdit

Charles Blondin was a French tightrope walker who performed in the United States and Great Britain. He crossed the 1,100 ft (340 m) long rope suspended over the Niagara Gorge on the American-Canadian border. He continued this stunt many times but with different variations and props. These included being blindfolded, in a sack, pushing a wheelbarrow, on stilts, carrying a man (his manager) on his back, sitting down midway while he cooked and ate an omelette and standing on a chair with only one chair leg on the rope.

EffectsEdit

When wound around the waist it gives the user a perfect sense of balance. Can be wound around the wrist to be used by multiple people at once.
