Hi

I don’t know if anyone else has tried this but I found out I can do the Crazy Man's Handcuffs with these wrist bands that everyone is wearing these days.

I was sitting at the SAMS convention on Sunday (01/05/05) and my son had two on, I borrowed them and managed it first time.

It is more effective with two the same colour but you can get away with different colours.

Has anyone else tried it?

I don't have a solution, but I admire the problem.

If by "all these wrist bands" you mean the LARGE RUBBER ones a-la-livestrong type then I call Bovine Scatology on this one.

Yes the LARGE RUBBER ones, do you mean BS to the idea of using them or the bands in general?

There isn't a way on God's green earth for you to be able to do Crazy Man's Handcuffs with those LIVESTRONG rubber bracelets. They're too thick and taut. I say it's an impossibility unless you are doing this for the blind.

Have you tried it? Its not perfect but does work,not a full routine but as an impromptue item it does work.

I have been working on the idea that there are a lot of fakes going round and you can tell them because the pass throught each other.

I will agree some of the original bands are very thick but most of the ones around now are more ply-able.

like I said have you tried it

I tried to do it with the original LIVESTRONG bands...not gonna happen...not unless I develop my finger strength considerably. I will concede that it may be possible with these 'newer' ones that you mention as I've not held them, but I can see where it could happen with the right band. I now offer my apology for calling BS (LOL) and submit to you that I have NOT tried this with those other ones. I understand that there is a website where you can order customized bands. Perhaps they could help you in achieving the 'perfect' size, strength, and elasticity required for your new found variation. Again, I humbly request your forgiveness. If this works, then you've got a gem of a variation...good for you my friend!

What makes CMH work with that the bands are small. #19.
A thick band would simply give away your effect in my mind.

I tried it and it would certainly show how it was done
