What the audience sees:

1. You show two REGULAR AND UNPREPARED rubber bands, each held between a thumb and finger. The bands and your fingers make rings. You show that there is no way to link these rings. You rub the bands against each other, and make them VISUALLY penetrate each other. This is a compelling illusion, with exactly the same visual as crazy man's handcuffs- except the bands are going IN!

2. You show that now there is no way to get out. Then, the bands visually penetrate out- ONE STRAND AT A TIME! When they are half way through, the bands can be pulled to show that the bands are REALLY HALF-WAY THROUGH! Then, the last strand pulls on the other rubber band and VISUALLY POPS THROUGH!!!

3. You offer to repeat the effect, bringing the bands up to chest height. Again, the bands penetrate IN AND OUT!

4. You then ask an audience member to hold one of the bands between their two hands. You show that the bands are definitely outside each other, and there is no way to get through. Now YOU TELL THEM EXACTLY WHERE TO LOOK! The bands immediately and visually penetrate each other RIGHT AT THAT SPOT. Then, they penetrate back out and you take your applause.

The above routine is 100% commercial, and has been audience tested over thousands of performances. You will have all the tools you will ever need to construct your own personalized version of the crazy man's handcuffs:

1. DEAN DILL personally teaches his legendary "no pull" method for getting the bands apart.

2. MICHAEL AMMAR’S brilliant handling of the crazy man's handcuffs, in which the spectator is holding one of the bands.

3. DAVE WOMACH’S move to show the bands HALFWAY THROUGH the penetration!

4. All the refinements and subtleties Nabil has made over the years.

5. LOREN MICHAELS teaches his original "Band-It" move, which allows you to make the bands penetrate IN! NO MORE AKWARD SET-UP!

6. Nabil takes you through 6 VARIATIONS of Loren's move, including HOW TO GO IN ON A BAND HELD BY AN AUDIENCE MEMBER!!! This leads directly into Michael Ammar's penetration and makes an unbelievable finalé that NEVER FAILS TO GET AUDABLE GASPS!!!

EVERYTHING IS TAUGHT FROM THE OVER-THE-SHOULDER PERSPECTIVE. What you see on your screen will look just like you are looking down at your own hands. All you have to do is just follow along and do exactly what you see on the screen. This is the EASIEST, FASTEST, AND MOST POWERFUL WAY TO LEARN MAGIC!!!

With the above, you can perform THE MOST AMAZING, COMMERCIAL CLOSE-UP EFFECT OF ALL TIME, and do it BETTER THEN EVER!!! All you need is two rubber bands...THAT'S IT! You can perform this anywhere, anytime, and under any condition (even underwater)!



You will learn how to make and use a special gimmick that will allow you to VISUALLY LINK AND UNLINK 2 UNPREPARED, EXAMINABLE RUBBER BANDS!!! You can do this with BORROWED rubber bands! You will learn 3 VERSIONS of the gimmick:

1. Nabil’s original version, which he has used time and again to FRY BOTH MAGICIANS AND LAYMEN.

2. CYRIL’S REVOLUTIONARY VERSION. Cyril’s design on the gimmick allows you to perform the effect in casual clothing, whereas Nabil’s original set-up is designed specifically for a tie.

3. Dave Womach’s version, designed for stage performers. Dave's version allows you to have the gimmick come on and off your person whenever you want, with no suspicious moves!

With this gimmick, you can VISUALLY LINK AND UNLINK ANY SMALL, THIN ITEMS! THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!!! Here are the routines you will learn that use the gimmick:


2. LOTS OF CONTENT ON THE LINKING FINGER RINGS. First, you learn how to LINK TWO UNGIMMICKED, BORROWED RINGS, then have them VISUALLY MELT APART! Then you learn Nabil’s basic linking finger rings routine without the gimmick, utilizing a standard himber ring. This includes NEW SUBTLETIES AND MOVES with the rings. Next, you learn 2 versions of the effect using 2 rings and the gimmick. Finally, you learn how to combine the gimmick together with a three-ring routine. The Linking Finger Rings is A REPUTATION MAKER, and now it’s BETTER THEN EVER!!!

3. A Ring on Rubber Band finale that will BLOW THEM AWAY! And that’s just THE TIP OF THE ICEBURG. By combining the LINK! gimmick with other linking effects, you can perform the links and/or unlinks in a VISUAL, CLEAN, AND COMPELLING MANNER.



1. The Broken and Restored Rubber Band. With this handling, you will be able to set up FASTER THEN EVER, right under the audiences nose. When you break the band, the AUDIENCE CAN SEE THE BROKEN ENDS! Then, the band is VISUALLY RESTORED and without any wasted motion or suspicious looking moves. The restoration is STREAMLINED, FAST, AND STUNNING.


With "LINK!" you don’t just get the WORLD’S GREATEST Crazy Man's Handcuffs, Linking Rubber Bands, Linking Finger Rings, Ring on Rubber Band, Broken and Restored Band, and the Jumping Rubber Band. You don’t just gain a powerful weapon which will REVOLUTIONIZE YOUR MAGIC. You also will GROW AS A PERFORMER! Throughout the ENTIRE DVD, you learn how to apply the concepts and philosophies to all your magic.

then you need this dvd, that is if you don't have it already. This dvd is filled with great rubber band effects. You can easily put together a nice routine with just this dvd. The best elements though are the subtleties that are taught for crazy man's handcuffs. These will take an ordinary presentation and make it extraordinary. Dean Dill has a technique that is especially good. I highly recommend this dvd. It is well within the grasp of even beginners given that practice be put in.

I have always wanted to perform the linking bands or Crazy mans handcuffs(whichever you prefer)but, dreaded learning it from a manuscript. Nabil Murday's dvd is very informative and easy to follow.

This is an AMAZING effect and your spectators will go CRAZY when they see it. It lost a star because it cost so much and all of the enterances are pretty much the same. But i still highly recommend this and if you are into impromptu magic that will amaze your spectators, then ADD TO CART!!!

ps. the linking rubber band, ring on rubber band, and linking finger rings are great effects but or NOT impromtu.

I think this dvd is ok . I thought it would be a little better. Nabil is a great teacher. Some of the variations of the ways to get in are pretty much the same. Just from different angles to the spectator.

Hi! This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.

If you like Linking and Unlinking rubber bands, BUY THIS NOW. It is THE SOURCE for this effect.

You learn a great deal of information in this DVD. In fact, I was surprised by how much pure hotness was contained in this vid. Crazy-man's handcuffs is an awesome effect, and though very popular it still gets a sense of amazement and wonder from audiences when performed well. I learned my 3 phase rubber band routine here, and there are many, many more phases I can add to the routine should I choose to. It really is a great DVD.

Be prepared to put some practice and work in. This isn't a hard trick, but it isn't always easy either. You will have to work to make this look good. Also, I don't think the DVD was produced or presented as well as it good, but it gets the job done.

If you like rubber band effects, this is the way to go.
