The Godfather is a master of closeup magic. He can do it with coins, cards, dice, etc. He's also quite creative with Rubberbands. Here is his take on Harry Lorayne's Broken and Restored Band called "Snapped." Vinny's version is called "Jacked." Also to credit here is Vince Mendoza.

You gotta admire the Godfather's stuff. Totally top shelf all the way. Some of the best close-up stuff I've seen.

Never been in to rubber band work but I got to watch Vinny and Vince a bit at WMS and they did some wicked cool stuff!

Good stuff Godfather,

Mick

Yes Ed this a very old Harrs Idea.
the only thing I did was tweek the get ready infront of the audience and the one hand diplay ,ala Vince Mendoza and my one handed display, which both of these ideas IMO makes the effect more powerful,,,
any way nice job on the way you did this
