Beautiful effect but for me it just doesn't work. I've gone over the video dozens of times now,
trying to ensure that I have the same configuration. While poorly filmed with inadequate views of
how things need to look, there were a couple of brief glimpses that I could freeze to make sure I
had it the way he did. But over 95% of the time, upon release, the band snaps down to the wrist, not
onto the hand. One can easily see that this is the natural place for the band to end up, but there
may some combination of details in initial set up, the shape and smoothness of the hand, the nature
of the band, the way tension is distributed in the band, and unexplained details in how the release
is done, etc., that can drive the release upward to the hand, but that secret sauce is not taught
and may not even be recognized as secret sauce.
I've waited several days after both
posting my questions in the discussion area and emailing tech support for further guidance, but have
heard nothing back. So for now, at least, I'm posting this negative review for what may be a great
effect, but will be happy to retract it if there is a way to get this thing to work reliably.

I am not elastic band magician and that is exactly why I gave it four stars. Just like in card magic
you need a whole deck to lose a card for a magic reveal so too with Horizon you can't do any of this
move with a single band. You need to wear a number of them on your wrist. If that's not you and you
don't or won't wear them then I wouldn't recommend it.
Having said that the move is
amazing and the effects are exactly as you see them in the video.

I love the Horizon technique and routines. Really Great meeting you Joe. Thank you for making the
Horizon technique easier and practical. I really enjoy using those technique. Thanks Again!

Joe goes into great detail showing every nuance and angle you need to know to pull this off
flawlessly. Great teaching. Use this conjunction with Joe's other Band effects and you'll have an
arsenal of eye-popping magic you can carry with you, taking up no pocket space whatsoever.

the video assumes everyone is a professional rubber band magician and doesn't go into details in
I've went ahead and contacted Joe Rindfleisch about it and he promised to get
back to me. 6 months have passed and still no answer from him despite several reminder, his only
reply is "give me some time"
concept is interesting, i had purchased almost all of his
products but i am never going to buy anything related to Joe Rindfleisch anymore, thanks for the
"great" experience Mr Joe

SIMPLY BRILLIANT! WORDS CANNOT DESCRIBE HOW FABULOUS!! PURE GENIUS!
CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT
EFFECT THAT LOOKS LIKE REAL MAGIC -- COMING FROM ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE LIVING LEGEND MAGICIANS
AND CREATORS, SIR RINDFLEISCH! AND THANKS TO GREGOR MANN!
Another great value download for top quality band tricks all of his downloads are a must have 5
stars yet again rubber bands are taking over my life !!
This is good as seen in the video and doable, no hard
Ive been waiting for something like this to come along for quite a while and it is finally here! I
was worried with having big hands that this wouldn't work for me, but after I picked up Joe's
rainbow bands, I was in business!
This move is simply beautiful and it only took me about 20
minutes to get down.
Do yourself a favor, order this asap!
The move isn’t difficult to set up. It takes a bit of practice to get the timing right for color
changes,etc., but that’s the fun of it. Rubber bands are such an ordinary object, and spectators are
more surprised by the magic in it. I’m surprised everytime I do it for myself. This is a great
addition to the other ones I’ve purchased from Joe and others through Penguin Magic.
