Nice convincer for any rubber band magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 22nd, 2011
Reading the previous review I was under the notion you could hand out the rubber bands for exmination when they're still linked. Well, you can't.
This is a very original and out of the box thought out method. Usually, rubber band magic involves trying to conceal some crazy and unnatural moves with the bands. This one is simple and as natural as it gets. I like it at the end of my rubber band routine, to "convince" (that gets smiles, since it is very clear that these are simple rubber bands) that my rubber bands are magical. HOWEVER, I did not recieve huge reactions with this one. It packs small and doesn't play that big either. Some people think that it has to do with static electricity. Given the method used, you are somewhat limited in your ability to prove them wrong.
If you like rubber magic, and I do, get this. Set up is very easy, and you can make as many gimmicks as you want.
It's okay from a distance Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 19th, 2012
When my package arrived, I popped the DVD in and they first showed the trailer to the trick. And I COULD NOT BELIEVE WHAT A SAW. I saw the gimmick in the trailer on the DVD, I knew how the tricked worked before I even saw the explanation for it. I look on the internet looked at the trailer that I saw on the magic site. And you couldn't see the gimmick at all. And it was the same trailer. They edited or something so you would not see the gimmick in the store. I was just disappointed in that because they mislead you. Anyway this is an okay trick from a distance I would not do this trick very close up.
Too risky Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 23rd, 2012
This gimmick is just too risky for me. In NO WAY would I place this in my spectators hand. They are sure to see the gimmick if they are looking at the bands. Mine unlinked many times with just slight movement. After ,much practice and performance, I am going to pass on this one.
You'll need to perform this with grace for it to be convincing. If you can do it, then YES you can hand it out clean at the end. The gimmick idea is clever but surely can be improved upon.
Demo misleading Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 30th, 2012
Well, I just received it and its way less than what I expected. I figured it might be a miniscule magnet that might even be easily ditchable. At least that would have solved any angle issues. As it stands, theres absolutely no way you can do this in a spec's hands. Ive tried modifying the gimmick every single way and was caught every single time. I mean, its in plain view no matter how you hold it and their attention is right there so the demo is actually rather humerous to me. Thus, 2 stars were because from a distance, wearing dark clothing and holding it close to your body the effect does work and I suppose for $14.00 thats what you get.
You MUST get this Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 12th, 2011
You MUST get this. Linking rubber bands in the spectator's hands - doesn't get any better than that.
Setup is 3 mins, and you're good to perform it over and over for months. Here's the best part: Not kidding ... you can HAND OUT the rubber bands after you're done for examination. They will find nothing at all.
Assuming you have the gimmick on you, you can visit your local office supply store, buy a package of rubber bands and immediately do the trick with those... And then of course HAND the cashier the bands to examine or keep.
The gimmick is durable, and can be run over by a truck and still function great. MUST HAVE, best I've spent in a long time. Seriously, you will be performing this ALL THE TIME.
BUY THIS RIGHT NOW YOU IDIOT Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 31st, 2012
I never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever write reviews. John -- well done. You deserve this.
I buy too much magic. I don't even have time to learn it all. But I've been waiting for a trick forever now that revolutionizes magic. This one does it, easily.
How about a trick where the video doesn't make the trick look cooler than it really is? How about a trick where is really is that freaking good in person, too? It's that simple. It's that easy to do. It's that stunning and incredible and amazing. I just love it when you don't have to cover up anything while the magic part happens. I love it when the magic part happens without any quick moves where the audience knows you did something but has no idea what you did. I just love it when the audience never saw you do anything at all and all they saw you do was something stunning and amazing. Seriously, guys, this trick has it all.
I will say this, because I think the description should include it for full disclosure: in order to lend out the rubber bands for examination, you have to break the gimmick. Get over it. It's easy to make, you can make a million of them at once, it's totally worth it, and, if you're like me, no one will ever ask you to examine anything because you'll make fun of them for even thinking that there is such a thing as trick rubber bands. When people ask me if the rubber bands are trick, I immediately say yes, then look at them like they're crazy. Then I say they can look at them, and they immediately agree there's no need. So I've never broken my gimmick to date. But I'm always ready to do it. And you should know that you'd have to as well, but that it's not a big deal.
Also, this trick is a whole brand new idea.n I bought it in part because I couldn't figure it out. Yes, there, I admitted it, you got me. Jerk. The closest analogy I have ever seen is the trick with the ring and shoelace -- but the secret is still very different here. And when you find out the deceptively amazing secret, you will be satisfied. It isn't one of those tricks where you find out the secret and it disappoints you. No. This secret is good. Actually, it's awesome. It's really awesome. You should buy it. Now. Right now. Go buy it. Stop reading this.
One more thing. Since this trick is a whole brand new idea, I bet there will be improvements by other people, eventually. Not that there needs to be. The trick is great right now. But a slightly stronger gimmick would make this even better. The gimmick can't be too strong, for obvious reasons that will make sense after you buy it, but something a tad stronger would be even better. Just my two cents.
Okay, I've tried to be helpful. To the extent that you've read anything above and you think that I've expressed a disappointment, well, I haven't. I rated this thing 5 stars, thumbs up, and repeatedly told you to buy it right now. I've tried to provide helpful information, but I've overall concluded that this is the perfect trick and that you should buy it right now. So go. Do it. BUY IT!

I played with the "gimmick" that came already made and I didn't care for the light-weight and misshapen rubber bands that were supplied, so I went to the little box where we toss the rubber bands from our morning newspaper (thicker and more uniform in shape) and made my own "gimmick" per the instructions. As I continued to work with it, I became more and more critical of how easily the bands appeared to NOT be really linked. But as I began working out my own routine (and patter), and then performing in front of a mirror, I noticed that the illusion was indeed spectacular. As I slightly turned the "linked" bands from side to side, and seeing the top loop of the bottom band, the human eye (perhaps due to the same "persistence of vision" that lets us see animated drawings) SEES the bands connected! When I separated the bands by letting them seem to stretch a little bit before separating, I then stretched the untreated band and tossed it on the table, then I did the same to the treated band and tossed it on the table WITH THE GIMMICK STILL IN IT! My two friends BEGGED me to tell them how I did it! I'm telling you people SEE these bands as actually being LINKED! This is no doubt, for really informal and close-up magic, the best gag I have ever purchased. I absolutely LOVE IT! And it is SO easy to make. Sorry for this being so long.
great Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 29th, 2013
seriously, guys, if you are real magicians, not just cheap kids who just buy tricks with their moms money and call themselves magicians, then you should by now have figured out ways to adjust the gimmick and your performances so you CAN hand out the bands so stop sending negative reviews about a great product to a great creator just because you guys cant perform magic properly.
Not what I was expecting Report this review

He really thought out of the box. You can't really preform this close to a spectator, but other than that it's great!
