The most shocking magic doesn’t happen in your hands. After all, you do sleight-of-hand; magic is SUPPOSED to happen in your hands.

TRULY SHOCKING magic happens INSIDE YOUR SPECTATORS’ HANDS.

And BANDIT not only happens inside your spectators’ hands…WHEN it happens, they lose their s#!t.

Here’s how the trick looks:

1) You CLEANLY display two rubber bands. You place one of them inside your spectator’s hand. She can see it there—just one band—until the very last second, when she closes her hand.

2) You take the second rubber band…and make it disappear in the CLEANEST WAY CONCEIVABLE. It goes into your hand…and then IT’S JUST GONE. You can show both hands front and back. Nowhere to be found.

3) She opens her hand…and, you guessed it: The second rubber band has REAPPEARED INSIDE HER HAND, along with the first one.

4) She FREAKS the f*#k out. (I include this as a step of the trick because it happens pretty much every time.)

SPECIAL NOTE FOR BEGINNER MAGICIANS: If you’ve never done a trick like this before, prepare for the biggest reactions of your life.

SPECIAL NOTE FOR ADVANCED MAGICIANS:
If you’re familiar with ‘the sponge ball trick’ you know how powerful this premise can be. Also, if you’re familiar with THAT trick, you’re going to LOVE all the thinking and refinements that made THIS trick possible. Both the ‘load’ and the ‘vanish’ are accomplished in COMPLETELY DIFFERENT WAYS—ways that take advantage of the basic properties of rubber bands. And, of course, the biggest advantage of using rubber bands in place of sponge balls is: Sponge Balls look suspicious—like they came from a magic shop. Whereas everyone already knows what rubber bands are and how they’re supposed to look. So using bands puts the focus on the magic, not the props.

FINAL NOTES TO ALL:

-When you receive the download, you’ll not only get Daryl Williams and Darryl Davis’s complete teaching; you’ll get TWO FULLY SEPARATE vanishes. Combine those with the original two-phase routine and really you’re getting 4 tricks for the price of one.

-Unlike so many rubber band tricks out there, you don’t need sleeves or trick rubber bands to make the magic happen. Short sleeves and regular rubber bands will get the job done. And in this case “getting the job done” is code for FREAKING PEOPLE OUT.

-Rick Lax

Notes and credits: The core of the vanish comes from James Chadier and was presented on a DVD produced by Kyle Marlett. Further trick refinements come from Rick Lax, Jake Roeber, and Justin Flom.

BANDIT IS A STEAL FOR AN UNEXPECTED REASON Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 22nd, 2016
Please let me start by saying that I am a magic nobody. Nobody knows my name really, and I am far from famous. I have been performing for over 35 years now, and been to one magic convention; now you know who’s talking. This is my take on BANDIT.
You should purchase BANDIT, but not for the reasons you may be thinking. This is NOT proper street magic, as there is a HUGE preset that takes TIME to get into, and no information is provided on how to cover this. This is NOT impromptu magic, for the previously stated reason. What it is, is a beautiful teaser/tag (more teaser, less tag, IMHO) to ANY close-up rubber band routine, most especially Crazy Man’s Handcuffs, for which it seems to be perfectly and intentionally designed. I WILL be using this with my CMH routine from here on in... as soon as I can solve the problem of the preset.
In the promo, Darryl Davis & Daryl Williams (a.k.a. The Other Brothers), are shown performing this trick live on the street and getting HUGE responses. Darryl (one of ‘em) is shown in the beginning presentment position, but never shown getting into it, or recovering the preset after the routine is completed. As the preset takes time, and must be covered somehow, I would have really liked to have seen this addressed; it is integral to performing the illusion properly.
James Challeye (Spl?). Remember this name. He created the vanish you will learn as a part of BANDIT. The vanish is worth the price of the entire trick, and much, much more. Fair warning, once you’ve seen it, you can never unsee it, but this vanish is a genuinely thing of rare grace and beauty. This is the primary reason I am recommending this trick for purchase, and the sole reason for the five star rating; without the vanish? A 3.5.
BANDIT is, overall, a very satisfying routine almost any environment or venue except impromptu or street, UNLESS you are prepared to work out something to cover the preset, which you will see is of definite concern, but definitely NOT a BANDIT purchase-killer, if only for the vanish.
If you do rubber band magic, you definitely need BANDIT; if you do not do rubber band magic, BANDIT is a good reason to start.

So Good it HURTS Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 23rd, 2016
These Other Brothers are bringing us good stuff. Great stuff. They are practical, workers and easy to do letting us focus on the presentation and the WOW. I watched the video 5 times refusing to learn how to do the vanish until I couldn't stand it any more. It's so good it hurts! It works! NOW - here's a blow away finish for this trick that they didn't mention as a possibility. Paul Harris has an effect called SLR and you can (and should) get the DVD and learn the whole trick. It comes with LINKED rubber bands as well as individuals. You can reuse them or give them out after the effect. You can see the product on Penguin here: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/1934

So - I am using the refill SLR bands for this trick. Follow the instructions given by The Other Brothers but use Paul's SLR for the "Single Band in Hand" -- Vanish as instructed the other single SLR band by the Other Brothers instructions. Now when spectator opens his hand THERE ARE TWO BANDS, THAT ARE LINKED AND EXAMINABLE. PERFECT ending to any linking band routine you currently use too.

Tis is one DAMN GREAT trick and you should buy it and use it. Best ten bucks I spent this year!

BANDIT from a street performers perspective. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 21st, 2016
Firsty let me start off by giving you some idea of who i am and what setting this would be performed in for my self.

I am a street performer from australia and have been making a living off this for 6 years. Prior to this i had 8 years previous experience in magic and have become extremely selective about the tricks i perform... that being said here are my notes and thoughts on this effect.

This effect takes a classic of magic and makes it more modern and even practical for todays magicians.

I perform shows of 100 to 200 people in a circle around me. So typically i wont use an effect if it doesnt meet certain criteria.

-can it be performed surrounded.
-can it be used comically or with extended performance.
-is it going to require too much setup and or clean up?
-is the payout of the effect worth the risks of performing it?

And i can say every single bit of this criteria is met. The effect without revealing it is fantastic and practical with high reward.

The two gentlemen who teach this effect are clear concise and to the point. They do not over explain the effect however they credit any and all outside influence which is nice. They teach this trick much the way you would learn it if they showed you in person. The video and instructions sre easy to follow and they have a lovely presence on camera.

I personally will add this to future routines if situation calls for a small miracle.

Its definately worth taking a look at and i would imagine anyone who pays and learns this effect they will use it as well. I think this will be an instant classic and much like "crazy mans handcuffs" this effect will be something all magicians know in the future.

Thanx for taking the time to read and please do place an order fpr this effect its worth learning.

Excellent and fun routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 23rd, 2016
I do sponge ball magic all the time and I was totally fooled by the vanish and reappearance of the rubber band in the person's hand. I was laughing at the explanation for the vanish and reappearance because they are so simple. It is a fun, easy, and magical routine to do. It just takes a little practice. Darryl and Darryl perform and explain the routine very clearly with a couple of other simple vanishes thrown in as well. Highly recommended.

Bandit by the Other Brothers Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 23rd, 2016
Bandit is a nice start routine for my rubber band set and take but a short set up. I've found placing the load (set) on a piece of tape in my right front pocket work for walk-a-round going from table to table. Do not over use it in a small room. I enjoyed doing it.

Ingenious but ... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 1st, 2016
I liked the idea behind this effect, however, I found the setup difficult to do as part of a series of effects. In addition, unlike a sponge ball routine where there can be many aspects of effects, here the effect is done quickly and its over. I would love for someone to help routine this effect as the method is ingenious.

If I could describe the reactions of BANDIT when I performed it for my friends, in one word, that word is: WOW.

Good idea poor execution Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 31st, 2016
First off let me say I would have given this three stars if not for the happy emoji that comes with it.

Now for the review: When I bought this trick I was super excited and watched it Immediately, but once I went to perform it I found that the load doesn't work if the PERFORMER has smaller hands, so I wasn't able to do the super clean display of the rubberbands (which is what I bought this for initially). The vanish was nothing new, I've honestly seen it done and tuaght before hundreds of times however, it doesn't make it any less visual. It's popular for a reason. The teaching was excellent, it was very concise and I loved their personalties.

In summary: The trick doesn't work for me (a dime is the size of the tip of my index).
