THIS REVIEW MUST BE SEEN!10 of 11 magicians found this helpful.
I went looking for beads and spent $7.00 dollars on them and found NOT ALL BEADS WILL WORK! You need to find beads that are spaced out enough to allow the cord to rest on top of the other cord of the other necklace. If the beads are too fat, or spaced too close together you can not do the special move that makes this work. You need necklaces that the cords can lay over each other and actually touch without the beads getting in the way. I hope this makes sense.
very easy to do, but still powerful Report this review

My god, this one is so easy, but still has high impact. Definitely worth the money.4 of 4 magicians found this helpful.
The teaching is simple and at the same time Patrick gives you enough detail to be able to perform it instantly.
It is nice adding to my repertoire, not that I'll be using too often, but it is something you can do without any set up....
Thank you Patrick.

The technique of getting the beads manipulated was not clear and slow enough. It must be done very clearly, slowly and repeated.3 of 3 magicians found this helpful.
Good, not great Report this review

I actually like this effect a lot, but a lot of people accidentally 'guess' how part of it is done, making me a bit hesitant to do it very often. Of course, I never admit it, and none of those who asked have yet to successfully duplicate it, so none of them actually *know* how close they were. That said, it's definitely worth the $5 I paid for this download.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.

Great Easy trick if you use Beads Report this review

I work as a DJ and I hand out beads all the time, My guest are blown away when I hand them a set of beads I then tell my guest wait a minute and I ask for them back, I then do this trick. I get a great response and almost always get booked for some other gig.2 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
I have a friend who is a bar tender and he also does this trick with great responses also.
Well worth the money and if you use beads in your act I would highly recommend spending the few bucks to get this trick.

I like the idea of using Mardi Gras beads to perform one of most classic tricks in magic, the linking rings. As far as impromptu goes, this is perfect. I love it because I can wear them around, do the trick, and give them out as a small gift (get a pack from Dollar store).2 of 3 magicians found this helpful.
On the video, the instructor does a good job crediting his influences, but also assumes that the student (me) knows what he is talking about, and knows the effect he speaks of. I didn't.
The "critical" move for the trick to work is pretty obvious, even when trying to find a way to make a cover. Though the "critical" movement is small, trying to cover it with a bigger movement is still insufficient.
There is only one camera angle in the instruction. It would had been helpful to have an "over the shoulder" view for some parts. (personal preference)
The trick is good, impromptu, and done well a very visual effect that can be cool. The price is reasonable, but if watch the demo and have some former rubberband knowledge, you can figure it out. Do it for people at a party (that has drinks) and everyone should love it. Kids are smart, they pick up on what's happening readily easily.

Here's what's wrong with this (I bought this some time ago, so this review is late to the game):1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
1. Good luck finding beads that will work. I have tried real Mardi Gras beads and a large variety of beads from gift stores, and none are spaced right for the trick. Moreover, most beads you buy these days have the safety "pop apart" feature (thanks to personal injury lawyers), so your spectator easily assumes you just popped the strings apart.
2. This trick is a very limited effect. I mean, honestly, how long does this last? It's almost one that evokes, "Is that the best you can do?"
My advice: save your money.

The explanation could have been a little more detailed In the "get-ready" phase. It made execution a little tough to "figure out." There could have been some more detail about types of necklaces that work and those that don't.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
good little effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 30th, 2013
This is fairly easy (once you figure it out [see below]) and it does surprise people. The teaching is OK+ I say that, because he could be clearer in explaining exactly how the beads are "threaded" on your hands. When he combs down the beads to get them set in the fingers, the bottom of the strands aren't visible in the video, and you have to do some fiddling and playing to figure out the correct position. Once you get it on your own, you should be OK. It's a quicky surprise little bit, kind of a diversion in a routine.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.

But can safely say that is worth the price paid.
