Bill,

It is interesting that you do the cut and restore _before_ the CMH unlinking, because I have always seen Michael A. do the reverse. He usually points to an audience member after the unlinking, and says "you saw the bump, didn't you?" then claims that the rubberbands 'velcro' together, etc.

What I like about doing the cut and restore first is that it saves the more dramatic effect(the unlinking) for the end. I will try it this way the next time I do it..

I agree, it is a simple, but suprisingly dramatic little trick, which encapsulates a neat little misdirection. It is pure 'magic'. In Ammar's Classic renditions #2 video, he talks about how it demonstrates key aspects of magic theory...
