Southpaw,

It seems to me you didn't hesitate at all to ask Vinny for some handling videos when he offered.

Now you act like he is the worst guy ever, because he acted "rude" towards someone that was harassing him. You are embarrasing, attacking someone that helped you out for free.

That would be the classic definition of "two faced".

Southpaw,

I've stated a couple of times that Vinny is indeed the creator of the effect. Ask Vince Mendoza if you don't believe me, since you don't seem to believe me or Vinny.

Vince took Vinny's effect and improved it with a superior get-ready. Vince is credited and has given his blessings to Vinny. What else is there to dispute about the history of this effect?

Please read Duarte's posts in this thread. He digs up old quotes out of context and tries to present them as fact. I don't even know why I have to defend Vinny here. Vince Mendoza credits Vinny Marini in his manuscript. That should tell you the real chronological timetable for the effect.

You would have bought it if we weren't so nasty to you? I find that hard to believe. Again, if you read this thread from the beginning you would have realized that VINNY MARINI is the originator of the effect, despite DUARTE'S claims otherwise. Vince Mendoza says so himself IN THIS VERY THREAD. Therefore, you do not act like a rational person. Which is why I don't believe you would have bought this effect. A rational person would purchase solid, real-world material. You would probably buy that anti-gravity levitation people are raving about.

P.S. Yes, I did read your posts in this thread and yes, they reflect your ignorance.

Vinny sent his original version to Vince, and me at the same time, because he wanted to show us his new trick, so I had Vinny original version, and his handling on my hard drive before Vince ever started to work on his version. If that is what you really wanted to know.

South paw you better re read duarte post he wasn't asking about the history of the effect. he was implying it was not my effect.
even when Vince mendoza made his post he continued to attack...
I do not need you to buy anything from me.you talk about sharing what have you ever shared.... zippo....
I told duarte to get a life and get off my back , this is all I am going to say on this matter.
now back to the topic Liquid Band................
Come check out my magic.

From my point of view, Duarte made uncalled for and incorrect comments, and Southpaw merely said that that despite the offensive way Duarte acted, the response he received from more upstanding members of our community was just as impolite and uncalled for, and in that I think I agree.

Anyway, the effect looks really nice, but for me I prefer Breakaway Bracelt, which I might get sooon...

I love this, yet (still) find the setup a little "iffy" if there's a chance of people burning your hands. What do people typically find the mest misdirection whilst setting-up? Would you typically do this before, or after e.g. a CMH?

BruceUK - Having seen Vinny perform this many times, I can assure you it is possible to perform with people burning your hands. Vinny is extremely helpful and will resolve any performance/handling issues you might have. You won't be disappointed. - Scott

The video of liquid band looks pretty good. I'm probably going to get it. I do lots of rubber band effects and I believe this will be a nice addition to my arsenal. Good work Vin. By the way, I've got a killer relink and unlink of bands that I may share someday. The reaction is very strong. Have a great day,

Is there a video of your link and unlink Johnny? I'm sure I'm not the only one who would love to see it!

Cheers

No, I don't have a video. I am a slightly technologically challenged. I may try to have one of my kids help me create one. It could be a while, but I will get something together. I watched some of Dan harlan's vidoes and liked a lot of his material. But, he did a re-link that I felt was in need of improvement. I worked on it for a little bit and came up with something that was pretty visual. I then also came up with an alternative to CMH. I perform CMH first. them my killer improved relink. Then finally, the alternative handling to CMH. I believe it to be original stuff, but I could be wrong. I just haven't seen any of it performed by anyone else. I may end up trying to market it. I'm not sure yet. I'll let you know when I have it on video. I appreciate your curiosity. Thanks,

Johnny Impossible.
