Hello Café:

I enjoy Crazy Man's Handcuffs quite a bit. I originally learned the Michael Ammar version. Recently I saw a video demo on a foreign language internet site in which the magi did an instant 'linking' of the bands before doing the more common unlinking phase of the routine. It was fast and a real mystery, at least to me. I am familiar with the linking technique in the Slydini linking bands manuscript, but I am pretty sure this is not what was done in the video. Is anyone familiar with this technique and can you tell me where to learn it (i.e., a book or video)? Thanks!

Hey MTaylor2002,
The only place that I have seen this on video, is "Spectators Don't Exist" by Jon Allen. He also has some great touches on CMH as well.

Dan Harlan has a method on one of his rubberband videos as well: Vol. 1 I believe.

CMH is not about linking or un linking this is a penatration of the bands.
Chris kenners effect Missing Link is an inpromptu linking of the bands this is found in his book "Out 0f Control"

Come check out my magic.

All the above-mentioned effects can be found on Dan Harlan's magic with rubber bands DVDs.

Mark Fitzgerald has a handling called "Back Two-Gether" that's taught on Dan's video, which is my choice out of the methods I've found in print for a reverse penetration (as Vinny noted, it's NOT a link). There was another version in MAGIC a couple years ago, by Looy Simonoff and somebody else (whose name escapes me at the moment), called "Biological Rings" or something along those lines. I think it was in or around the summer of 2001, but I'm not 100% sure. It was one of the last few issues before Josh Jay took over the effects section.
Note: I have PMs turned off; if you want to reach me, please e-mail [email][/email]!

As mentioned by Greenshock, Jon Allen's handling on the video is exactly what you're referring to. It is actually not difficult once you know the move.
