So awesome Report this review

So coming out of the gate I should admit that I really like rubber band stuff. Psychobands does not disappoint.

Some of the stuff is definitely knacky and even after watching the tutorials, I still had to play around with certain positions a pretty good bit to actually get it.

Initially I was a little disappointed this wasn't an instant download, but I am actually glad it wasn't. You get a bag(purse?) full of rubber bands in varying sizes and colors and plenty of them. There will be a card in your package that has a link to a website and an access code. You can download the video or stream it on their site. The good thing about using the site is you can switch from trick to trick without having to go through an hour long video while looking for a specific minute mark to see an explanation.

Every effect has a performance, an explanation, and a walkthrough that really gives you the details you need.

Pros: Super visual band tricks that I personally haven't seen anywhere else, multiple effects, a ton of rubber bands, high quality tutorials, and some material that your spectator is pretty much guaranteed to love.

Cons: This isn't as much a con with this product as it is with band magic in general. Getting cleanly into certain positions in front of spectators seems pretty difficult(looking at you None Transfer). It would have been nice to show some clever ways to get into a few of the starting positions with a spectator watching you. Specifically the transfers. The Pops you will be able to get into quickly and easily with just a tiny bit of misdirection.

Ultimately, it's a super awesome project that is well worth the money if you're into doing some unique and new things.

Random Tip: use the None Pop to go into Rubber Thru Hand by Hauss and Vogt and you have a pretty solid band routine on(in?) your hands?

Luke, I am your Father Report this review

I have a Luke-warm response to this. First the good news. The subtitles work well as opposed to Dr Cyril Thomas’ heavy French accent in Banderaction. The bad news, the effects here are the father effects to Banderaction which are superior and more mature.

Many of the effects require a ring in the setup. No ring is required in the Banderaction effects.

A separate loss of a star occurs from terrible packaging. The bit.ly link to the tutorial didn’t work. Thankfully, the other link did work BUT it was printed in such a small font AND it used silver text on a white background it was VERY difficult to read. Finally, the password was printed in an ambiguous font making numbers look like letters Such that it took me many frustrating tries to access the tutorials.

One thing I did find interesting was the use of black gloves to provide high contrast to rubber band effects. I don’t know if Calvin or Dr. Cyril deserve credit for that presentational touch. Kudos for that.
