Magic Man teaches two excellent rubber band routines. His version of Crazy Man's Handcuffs combines
several effects into a single charming routine. The Boomerang Rubber Band routine is extraordinary.
I have tried to learn the Boomerang trick before, but without success. Thanks to Magic Man's
instruction, I'm now able to do it. The teaching on this video is extraordinary -- multiple
performances of each routine, on the streets and in the studio, followed by careful, clear, step-by
step explanations. Two tips: 1. It's essential to have the right rubber bands to do the Boomerang
Rubber Band. I found that the following rubber bands from Office Depot work: Size 16 rubber bands.
2 1/2 inch x 1/16 inch. 1/4 lb. Item 856-198. These are plain, tan rubber bands -- great for
practice, costing about $5 for a quarter pound. I'm still looking for some blue orange red or
purple rubber bands that I can use in performance. 2. There is a tutorial on YouTube for the
Boomerang Band: search for "Fancy Band" and "Chris Kenner." I found Magic Man's teaching to be more
helpful -- but Kenner is highly knowledgeable and gives some very useful pointers

Magic Man has delightful touches on several rubber band tricks, and he sequences them together to
create truly magical routines. The routines feel more than the sum of their parts. He also provides
whimsical premises that provide an almost logical feeling while being playfully illogical at the
same time (I’m a big fan!)
Also, the production value on this video is top notch. There
are both street and studio performances, and the explanations are clear. I’m looking forward to
incorporating some of his ideas into my own work and looking forward to seeing more from Magic Man!

This is a MUST HAVE VIDEO
Magic Man is great in this wonderfully filmed and produced tutorial.
He gives real world
handling with some very clever subtleties.
Boomerang Band is great, but I love hi handling
In a market, flooded with mediocre magic products, this product stands apart for a number of

Firstly, the boomerang band is a reputation maker and

DEFINITELY WORTH IT!
Looking fwd to
more products from this series...
The main feature of this download is the boomerang band, which Magic Man explains in the context of
a short routine. However, he also explains a second routine which is really, really good. His
touches on the penetrating bands/crazy man's handcuffs make his version the most convincing I have
ever seen. There is also a great 'moment' when a knot moves along the rubber band. The routine flows
smoothly (each step is 'well-motivated'), and it ends with the production of a coin. Magic Man says
that he uses these short routines to attract a crowd before segueing into his coin magic.
You can tell he has done these routines hundreds or even thousands of times. These routines are
perfect for a walk-around or street performer, or even just for an amateur in a casual setting.
Packs small, plays big and resets.
The video is shot really well, and you get both
real-world and in-studio performances. The explanations are shot in-studio and are clear and
detailed. The whole download is about an hour, and is amazing value.
Finally, a personal
anecdote: I actually once saw Magic Man perform the boomerang band live on stage in the 90s. It
played huge, and the crowd loved it - in fact it is the only thing I remember from that show, almost
20 years later (and there were several other performers). He can do it under fire in front of
hundreds of people.
It says volume 1 - I can't wait to see more of his magic!
