Not a bad effect but nothing earth shaking. I was a bit disappointed with the training video
contents or like thereof. Not much detail on handling, aside from the main move but angles are a
death wish here. They aren't good at all unless you have one person directly in front of you and
even then, you need to be mindful. Would have liked more info on the best types of rings to use but
overall, this is a good, visual piece of eye candy that looks to be quite easy to perform. I just
wish it had better angles.

Bought this in the coolbox and glad I didn't pay the full price. The demo may look good but in
reality it's not. Set-up takes long and is fiddly. Angles are awful, and the rubber band has to be
on your hand when approaching someone.
Balancing trick is nothing great, which he even
Overall I am very disappointed. Do not buy!

Pretty horrible in method and explanation. This kid is so lost in his own explanation that he hems
and haws the whole way through.
We get to learn the "secret" of the ring balance which Ben
himself confesses is rubbish.
I watched the trailer as I was working on a ring and band
routine myself. I thought I knew how it was done but I said "no way, they would not try to sell us
that garbage method."
I was wrong. If you think you know it, you are right. Don't waste

it can be with any ring but the ring can't be from the specters and if you have one ring on you
can't do the efc
and i really not sure is you can give it out
I give this effect two stars mostly because I was sad to see that preparing the effect takes a bit
of work and a lot of attention to detail, especially if you want it to look good. I've never used
this even though I was so pumped to learn it. Hope it works for you better than for me.
The effect is visual and relatively simple to perform, and the impromptu method is good. I would say
though, the end result is not as examinable as I might have hoped. That doesn't kill the effect, but
it does weaken it in my mind. Overall, it is good, not great.
This is the worst product I've ever bought from Penguin. Hands down. First, I could not get the
prep to work at all. Tried quite a few times, changed materials, tried some more, but no go. You
can't do this without the prep. If you could do it, I'm sure you'd find it VERY angly. And, no,
you can't hand this out. The prep would be obvious to anyone who got their hands on it. But since
the prep doesn't work, no problem. No one will ever examine it. No one will ever see me do it!
Pretty lame teaching, too. I'm really surprised Penguin released this.
Great tricks, good reactions, but a little problem with angles!
I know there will be a lot of complainers out there. I however think this is a real nice effect.
You will have some angles to watch for but like any angle sensitive effect you either don't perform
it if the circumstances are wrong or you move so you can control who can see your performance. You
don't perform in the round with an effect that is made to be performed front on. This is a great
looking effect front on. Actually your angles are not that bad if you use your head and shade your
angles at the proper moments. This is not going to be an effect you do 5 minutes after the
download. You will need to practice the get ready so you can be ready right out of the gate. That
being said, don't be afraid of a little work. This is a nice addition to your rubber band routines
especially with rings. You will need to have a set of matching rings to do this effect unless you
go the route of using candy like lifesavers. Take a chance. It is a cheap download and a good
