Loving Bands Early Review Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 17th, 2014
I ordered this when it first became available.11 of 11 magicians found this helpful.
So I have had a couple weeks with it.
The F'n Coin guys Phillipe, and Clemente; are great when it comes to visuals.
For this release the visuals remain, but there are a few issues.
Firstly, there are 2 routines that I am working:
1. Rubberring. This is a great in and out ring routine with a band. The spellbound finish is optional, so I leave it out.
Easy to get down, a bit tricky to learn. (More on that.)
2. F$%#. A highly visual and puzzling effect.
I have not had time to get this one performance ready yet.
About the teaching:
It is silent, and it is shot from a single angle at a time.
As well, most shots during teaching are about 4' away from the hands. This can make following the moves difficult.
They do go behind the hands, and freeze on certain moves; but some of the moves are just done quickly, and exposed, without much detail at all.
(In the end, they do go over a discussion regarding using two magicians to do certain effects. Interesting, but not wholly practical.)
This is compounded by the fact that the teaching is completely separate from the effect presentations.
(And also staged performances, not random.)
There is a 25 minute short film that showcases the main effects; and if you like them, there will be a lot of jumping between the 2 separate chapter menus to learn them.
I point this out because at one point there is an aerial shot of them driving, done with either a flying go-pro, or helicopter; that shows the level of production.
I just wish that level of dedication went with the teaching shots.
Crediting: Almost every effect has 2-3 credits for other magician's effects. Some as modern as Calen Morelli.
This is credited well; but it would seem that you are not buying any new groundbreaking moves, but rather their own takes on the presentations possible with those moves.
All in all, this is still a very entertaining, and interesting DVD set.
Many of the effects will take a few seconds prep; so while they seem to be impromptu, you will have to misdirect your set ups, even on the ones I mentioned that I do.
Rubberring; for example, has to be set up after you borrow the ring. There is no way to do it in front of them and have them be impressed. You have to misdirect, or do it to the side.
Those concerns noted; there is still some cool visuals, and unique plots on staple band moves.
If you do not mind working a little harder to get the info, and do not mind a little fidgeting in performance; there is plenty to check out here.
(It says 12 routines, but at one point goes into so many extra ideas; I would say it's more like 25 effects.)
I ordered overseas, so it cost a little more.
But for those wanting to check it out here in the US, buying it from Penguin should be a fair deal.
If you are not at least entertained by the presentation, you will find at least one thing you will use.
If you like to "Hit and Run" magic, there could be even more.
The Best DVD on Rubber Band ! Report this review

definitely one of the best buy, well shot and the teaching is very clear. Some tricks need quiet a knack, but well worth the effort! Get it!11 of 12 magicians found this helpful.
Is CMH all you do? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 3rd, 2015
If CMH is all you do, then this is not for you. I however, do complete sets with nothing but rubber bands and there is some cool stuff on this. I think the DVD set itself is a 5-star but I left one off in the review because they do not sell "rubber band kits" or even link where they can be bought for some of the very shape and color specific bands for a couple routines. I have found only one "shaped" rubber band that I can use after a couple weeks of hunting (and I am a pretty decent DIY/ find it yourself guy). Many other rubber band dvds I own sell "replacement packs" I just wish they would since material and types of rubber bands can be specific to regions of the world.1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
The DVD is fun to watch, learning is silent and a bit rushed but if you are not a beginner to rubber bands, you will know most of the principle moves and set-ups. Crediting is done well on each effect and there is a very modern, colorful feel to even some oldies but goodies as well as some great new ideas. (I just ordered a bunch of spongeballs :-) )
Keep in mind also, they are a team. 1 or 2 of the effects are for two magi, I often have a stooge available though but most are 1 person routines. Again, if you are a "rubber band magi" Go for it. Awesome additions to what you already know and use, not just your Uncle's CMH.

Good value Report this review

There is a lot of material. Only visual explanations to get around language differences. They could have done a few more close ups.
Not to good Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 27th, 2016
I am very honest, the magic on this dvd is one of the most incredible you can do with rubber bands but the teaching is not that good, they don't even say a word and the moves are to fast, I feel lucky that I got this on the open box.
