Product Description

"WOW... Awesome and practical. The new standard in ring on rubber band."
- Chris Kenner

"Your work is very nice. I like the way you use multiple methods to build up the believability of each phase. The whole routine is great and I really like the "Lost Link." Visual and smooth."
- Dan Harlan

"The third phase (Dangling Link) looked really great. New and from what I know original. good job."
- Joe Rindfleisch

Pi is a MIND BLOWING, Impromptu 4 phase routine with VISUALLY-DEVASTATING LINKS and UNLINKS with a BORROWED RING and rubber band under increasingly impossible conditions!

Get ready for women to scream and guys to be transfixed in bewilderment!

Pi: Ring on Band (4 phase routine):
Phase 1 - The borrowed ring melts through each strand. So smooth and clean people freak out!

About twenty-five years ago I fell in and out of favor very quickly with the late Bob Read. In because I was the only one in the lecture room that laughed at his very British jokes. Too much PBS I suppose. And Out because I said that I liked rubber band magic. Apparently Bob didn't.

I admit it. I like rubber band magic. I also like the effects on PI. PI is a collection of ring and rubber band moves from Philadelphia magician, Michael Scanzello. PI has five links, some variations with other objects and a “bonus” effect. More on the “bonus” later.

The DVD comes with twenty or so high quality rubber bands and a practice ring. The latter is nice but since it's more of a curtain ring than finger ring, I didn't find it useful. It is too light and thin.

The DVD is well shot with good angles to learn the moves. Each teaching segment features an over-the-shoulder demonstration that is helpful and effective. However, I wish Michael’s explanation was a little more scripted... [Read More]

This product got quite a bit of hype just before and as it hit the market. I am quite pleased to say that it lives up to that hype very well.

The first real breath of fresh air about this product is that its ad copy is 100% accurate and at from what I could see, does not promise anything that is not shown/seen on the DVD.

This DVD comes with a supply of 20 rubber bands and a practice ring (which is not so much like a finger ring as it is a similarly-sized hitch ring of sorts) and a full-color "poster" showing various steps of the routine - more on the "poster" later.

The rubber bands are very different from what you normally find in your office supply stores/aisles - they really do have a nice stretch and feel to them. The practice ring that comes with this is sufficient for practicing the moves right away.

The DVD is quite well-shot but the camera work for the introduction and parts of the explanation sections was a bit shoddy. I can appreciate trying to add variety shots... [Read More]

This is an excellent rubber band and finger ring DVD. He teaches a four phase routine with very good explanations of every move.

The routines are very angle proof and he teaches how to handle the moves that are angle sensitive.


This stuff is going to take some practice. All of the moves are doable, just require a bit of practice. This is not something you are going to pick up in five minutes.


Excellent rubber band and finger ring DVD.
