Effortless. Like real magic SHOULD be.

A finger ring is linked onto a SOLID rubber band.

And the best part? You HAND IT OUT. LINKED.

MY BRAIN SNAPPED when Ben linked a ring and rubber band, but IT EXPLODED when he handed me the LINKED ring and band. It just wasn't supposed to be possible.

Yesterday, our studio director Mandy told me a funny story.. During filming, she had no idea she was actually holding a gimmick the whole time. It's that deceptive.

PROFESSIONALS: This trick looks like special effects. It takes up virtually no pocket space, and is a perfect and mind-blowing finale to any rubber band trick you do.

The look on their faces when you hand out the impossibly linked ring and band is priceless. You're going to LOVE this.

Decent, bad angles Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 25th, 2013
Not a bad effect but nothing earth shaking. I was a bit disappointed with the training video contents or like thereof. Not much detail on handling, aside from the main move but angles are a death wish here. They aren't good at all unless you have one person directly in front of you and even then, you need to be mindful. Would have liked more info on the best types of rings to use but overall, this is a good, visual piece of eye candy that looks to be quite easy to perform. I just wish it had better angles.

A little less then advertised Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 25th, 2013
Pretty horrible in method and explanation. This kid is so lost in his own explanation that he hems and haws the whole way through.

We get to learn the "secret" of the ring balance which Ben himself confesses is rubbish.

I watched the trailer as I was working on a ring and band routine myself. I thought I knew how it was done but I said "no way, they would not try to sell us that garbage method."

I was wrong. If you think you know it, you are right. Don't waste your time.

Useless Report this review

Bought this in the coolbox and glad I didn't pay the full price. The demo may look good but in reality it's not. Set-up takes long and is fiddly. Angles are awful, and the rubber band has to be on your hand when approaching someone.

Balancing trick is nothing great, which he even admits!

Overall I am very disappointed. Do not buy!

The effect will take some time to set up. I like some of the options of doing this with a candy, so that the spectator can take it with them. I felt that the video should have went into the best ways to end 100% clean. Overall.. this is a great pocket trick. I'm glad I purchased this instant download.

Get it . Oh you already have ? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 25th, 2013
If Penguin works very fast, you might get this review while you can still get that direct-download through the COOL BOX.

Cool box or not, you should get it. I just watched it, and I got to say, I am very happy with getting this one.

A simple and extremly practical method to accomplish an amazing effect. I have no doubt I will perform this a lot .

Easy to perform, almost no set-up, a little angle sensitive but very practical...

Get it now !

10 stars out of 5 Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 25th, 2013
I have been wanting to do a rubber band trick, but frankly, most of them look like kiddie tricks and not like magic. Plus, a lot of them have weirdo hand positions. THIS TRICK ROCKS. WHETHER ON SPECIAL OR FOR 10 BUCKS, THIS IS ALWAYS ON SALE. IT SHOULD BE SOLD FOR 40 BUCKS or more.
1. you can let them examine your ring
2. you visually put it right on a rubber band
3. with no cover up, you hand out the ring and rubber ban--yes, they can examine it
4. if they really want you to put their ring on, he gives you a version to put it on and off that LOOKS GREAT. Again, not another weirdo looking effect.
to me, it is MAGIC THAT THIS IS AVAILABLE FOR 10 BUCKS PERIOD. THIS IS THE BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK YOU CAN BUY IN MAGIC. YOU WILL USE IT ALL THE TIME. IF YOU don't like the initial holding of the band, you can easily do another one of yours--no problem. BUY BUY BUY. I DON'T WORK FOR PENGUIN.
This is VERY EASY TO DO. YOU will have to buy two rings, but you can buy rings pretty cheap online. You don't have to gaff the rings, if that helps.
THIS IS REAL MAGIC FOR 10 BUCKS OR LESS. JUST PRESS BUY AND THANK ME LATER.

this is new, like it or not Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 25th, 2013
one reviewer implied this is like Miller's light speed.
No, that is done with a tied band/broken band. I am sorry to dissapoint you, but this is like real magic. This is done with an untied band, a rubber band. Miller's trick is great, but HOSTILE looks just like it would if it was real magic. You are not passing out a ring on a broken and tied rubber band. No, it is on a rubber band without knots. Also, this is more direct and visual. I have come up with an angle proof and easier start to this on Magic Cafe in Secret s******s.

this is how it would look if it was real magic. You hand it out linked on a rubber band, not a tied one. Diesel also avoided doing weird holds, and too many second-rate moves.He
knows that if it looks like real magic, less is more. This is first class. I am not associated with Penguin. they could never pay me to get this excited about an easy to do trick that is the BEST RUBBER BAND EFFECT EVER.

This trick comes with a warning--you may get the Hostile Effect, a passing malady which makes you a bit, H. to other second or third rate rubber band puzzles.

Really clever and versitile Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 26th, 2013
At first I thought I wouldn't like it. But as he got into it I love this effect. Love that you don't just have to use a ring, You can really use any thing small,sturdy and round. Really cool the, method had me completely fooled. And that they can examine it. What else is there to ask for?TWO THUMBS UP

What a great little trick: And Cheap! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 31st, 2013
Hee hee not sure where they get their names but this trick is not Hostile but Inviting.
Ben does a great job explaining the illusion and all aspects.
It does take practice and the pros will have no problem with the angles. Ben talks about this and shows you your way around.
This should be included in your rubber band routines as a great finale.
