HotShot With Rubber Bands
  • Two Way Stretch

    The Two Way Stretch is probably the hottest move in rubber band magic that you'll ever see. It's the perfect follow-up move to your torn and restored trick because you'll finish with one singular band. The audience will believe you've started with two separate bands... but little do they know, th...

  • Toungetastic

    This is the band trick that actually uses your mouth. You'll impress viewers when you are able to tie a perfect knot within the band after you've placed it in your mouth. It's just like that old bar trick with a cherry stem that everyone used to try and do. You'll need two rubber bands for this m...

  • Finger Spin Flourish

    This is a fun one hand flourish that's relatively easy to learn. It's the perfect piece for in-between your heavier pieces of rubber band magic. With just a little digit maneuvering and a flick, the band will spin around your index finger not unlike how a basketball does when you spin it on a sin...

  • Taking Martin by the Hand

    This is Ben's version of the classic Martin Gardner's Deck Twist. But instead of a deck, you'll only need a willing spectator's wrist for this. You'll wrap the band around their wrist a couple of times, be careful of getting it too snug. Then, after three slight tugs on the band, it'll curiously ...

  • A Band-Ment

    From the brilliant mind of Ken Simmons comes this masterful band trick called A Band-Ment. You'll snap your fingers and immediately the band you just wrapped around the deck disappears. You'll snap them once again and it magically reappears - but it's now in a different spot. Now it's only wrappe...

  • Back-Handed

    Have you been looking for a move to find your spectator's card that's equal parts enthralling as it is shocking? Well, look no further than this band trick called Back-Handed. Your spectator will place their chosen card back into the deck and after a few cuts, you'll wrap a band around it twice. ...

  • Penetrating Ring

    Now for something a little bit different. You'll start with a couple of rubber bands and interweave them through your fingers in such a way that nothing could ever hope to get past them. That's where you're wrong though. Using a ring and a little bit of magic, you can make that piece of jewelry p...

  • Thumb Tie

    This is a version of the classic Thumb Tie routine in magic that is usually done with wire or string. This version uses, you guessed it, a rubber band. You'll fasten your thumbs together using the rubber band so that you are unable to separate your hands. This would make it impossible for any obj...

  • Ring & Band Link

    For this trick, you'll need to borrow a ring from the audience. This way you'll be able to reassure them that there is no possible way any funny business is going on. You're going to mix the ring and the band together so much that they actually become one. Somehow, someway, you have interlocked t...

  • Kalush Link

    Ben performs and explains the steps behind Bill Kalush's legendary link, the fittingly named Kalush Link. If you enjoyed the previous linking a ring on a band, you're going to love this one. You'll need to borrow another ring from an audience member, you'll be linking it to a band once more - but...

  • Spread Suspension

    Now you're ready for the illustrious Spread Suspension. This is a great trick to throw in with either your card or band magic. In-between moves, wow your crowd by showing off your crazy ability to make cards float in midair as you ask them to pick a card... any floating card.

  • Master Link

    This move by Chad Sanborn is the master of all linking tricks when it comes to band magic. After this short, but in-depth tutorial and a little bit of practice you'll be able to skillfully link two separate bands. You'll easily bind the two rubber bands together, and then, just as easily, you'll ...

  • Stranded

    You may truly be doing to the unimaginable here. You going to let an audience member actually use a pair of scissors and cut through both of the bands you have in your hands. How could you possibly fix them? They've been snipped... cut in half... broken beyond repair. There's nothing you can do. ...

  • Thru a Spectator's Finger

    You may have guessed: you'll need a volunteer for this next move. Like the Thru Thumb or Taking Martin by the Hand, you're going to fasten the band around a spectator's finger. Just like before, you're going to learn how to make that seemingly securely fastened band pass right through their finge...

  • Synthesis

    You're finally ready for a Ben Salinas original. In this terrific move, you'll truly make serious magic happen. Two separate, normal bands become one mega-band with just a little bit of friction. Your fingers are the catalyst in this reaction, with just a little bit of rubbing the bands together ...

  • Hypertonic

    Last but not least is Ben's version of Band Thru Wrist called the Hypertonic. You start with a mega-band doubled-up, to increase its strength... This way, no one will question its ability to withstand some tugging from your where it's placed on your wrist. As strong as the doubled-up band is, tho...
