Hey folks. I picked up a bag of Pro Bands from Dan Harlan this weekend, and I have to say they really are great.

I have been using the same 2 rubberbands for six straight days, and they're really none the worse for wear.

Previously, I was getting my bands from Office Depot, and they would "fray" (if that's the right word) within a few hours of constant use. Naturally, they would break soon after.

These pro bands have really been abused these past 6 days. I've stretched them, shot them across the room, and performed CMH about 80,000 times. They still have plenty of elasticity and I don't feel like they plan on giving out any time soon. No little knicks or growing weak spots at all.

Great rubberbands, available from a great performer. $5 per bag of 200, available from Dan Harlan.

I'd also like to add that these bands work great for the Band through Wrist routine, which I learned from Greg Wilson's Off the Cuff, though I believe it's available a few other places.

These bands look much more convincing for this effect than the standard Office Depot bands.

Are these the same as the ones by Camirand Magic?

Hmm, I thought I posted my reply to this earlier, but it doesn't seem to be here now...

I have no idea if these are the same as the bands available from Camirand. The ones from Dan come in a bag that is labelled "Dan Harlan's Pro Bands". No clue who his supplier is. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

I saw Dan selling the bands at SCAM and I believe he said they were latex instead of rubber. I could have that backwards, but I think that is what he told me.

Yep. That's what I asked him. I recalled him saying that he preferred a latex band when he was guest of honor here at the Café. I asked him about that, and these are what he had to offer.
