The best one in my opinion is Vincent´s Garibaldi Mendoza "Found link and the rhing thing", but you need to practice in order to perform it well, the explanation comes in PDF format but is explained so well!, but is just one effect, I recommend you to take a look Dan Harlan´s material, he is fantastic with rubberbands.

I will suggest what everyone suggested to me when I was "new" asking. First USE the SEARCH function as more than likely there is already a post or 2 covering this.And then when I cant find anything then ask. When I typed in rubberband I got 32 pages of topics. Should keep you busy for a while Smile

I agree the Vince Mendoza's handling is the very best because he eliminated the tell tale X pattern for chris kenners missing link hence "found link" and his ring realease is different than jeff pierces "joining" he renamed the effect" ring thing" Vince and I have both independitly came up with the one handed display and he credits me in his notes.
Jeff pierce has come up with another beauty called Slo- mo un link you can pm me I will send a demo of this new effect it is also in Jeffs new Book( the king has left the building)
I also have severl of my own effects called liquid band ,
and breakaway braclett that are on my dvd the godfather.....

I saw a teenager during the early 1990's shoot a rubber band about 20 feet across the room, and it rolled back towards us !! (I am not making this up). I seem to remember it being in a booklet with 2 or 3 other rubber band effects. Does anyone know the effect or the creator?

Joseph the three video set by Harlan is excellent but it does not contain every thing.

Hello guys,

I've been off the board for a little while, but I'll drop in more often.

Vinny, Alejandro, thanks for the continued support. I'm sincerely gratified that others are finding value in my work. Vinny, I just placed my order for your DVD and I can't wait for it to come in. I'm still having a TIME putting mine together. It's not as easy as I thought and I had a lot of "creative differences" with the last videographer I shot with. I guess I may be too particular in how I want it to look, and if you have my manuscript, you know what I mean. It'll get done though - eventually. There's a lot on my plate right now.

I am saying crazy mans handcuffs. I still think it is the strongest because it is that clean and in your face when done well

So is the Mendoza foundlink, and the other band effects mentioned in your face.
using all of the above including CMH can form a beautiful routine with the bands.
do not dismiss any of the effects if you haven't tried them or never heard of them

I had a friend show me CMH and made it a point to show me the trick literally inches from my nose. Even that close, its virtually impossible to spot what's going on. Done slowely its even stronger.

And the beauty of it is that its just a pair of regular rubber bands. Nothing more.

Agreement with Vinny. Mendoza foundlink, Aronson ringleader, Vinny's liquid band, bracelet etc - all real close-up. excellent.

The only negative thing about rubber band magic is its just that - rubber bands - not elegeant or 'professional looking' like cards or silver coins. I think there's a barrier there.
