You need to see this, and you still won’t believe it. When Joe Rindfleisch performed this for the Penguin Magic team we assumed he and Dr. Cyril Thomas had invented the single greatest rubber band gimmick in history. Then our jaws hit the floor when we found out it was an ordinary rubber band. This is the final answer in the torn and restored rubber band. This is Joe Rindflesich & Dr. Cyril Thomas’ Convergence.

Convergence is a multiphase routine where a rubber band is actually broken in front of your audience. It is then visually restored. With a gentle tug the rubber band is torn apart, then restored and the ends taken off and clearly held apart from the restored band. The ends are once again restored and the rubber band is shown to be once again whole before being placed back around your wrist.

The description of this routine doesn’t do it justice. The visuals are mind-melting, and the band that is torn is the very same band that is restored and wrapped back around your wrist. No glue or gimmicks are involved. The displays are amazingly fair. This download is a meeting of the minds on the bleeding edge of rubber band magic. This is more than a miracle. This is Convergence.

Great Routine, but... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 19th, 2021
I applaud Mr. Rindfleisch and Cyril for the amazingly well structured routine. It unquestionably looks amazing. The big head scratcher (and borderline unfair trailer) was the ending. You can't hand out the band. You're doing something beyond impossible with an everyday object. The heat on that object as you complete the final phase is obviously white hot. You have to do/wear something most of us wouldn't be comfortable with to give the audience something examinable. Even if you were comfortable with that certain something, you none-the-less have to do the dirty work at a moment when the heat is on. For that I deduct two stars and question whether I'll ever perform this.

The Best Penguin Download EVER Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 17th, 2021
Not only is Joe left handed, making my job of understanding a first-time breeze (now right handers can experience what my life has been like:). But he uses terms like “dominant hand” that tell me he understands the issue like no other, making it much easier for right handers to follow along as well.
I’m only an amateur, but have been published and taught in the company of some of the world’s best magicians so I have some history. Rubber band magic is not something I’m into, but this routine is spectacular closeup requiring no gimmicks, gaffs or setup. Joe’s teaching of it is top shelf. And except for one quick, already taught demonstration, he uses a brightly colored band against a black shirt and background. His descriptions are flawless and camera work is first rate. Cudos to Joe Rindfleisch and Penguin Magic.
I will be rehearsing this and when the covid era is over I’ll be adding rubber bands to my wrist whenever I leave the house so I can perform this brilliant routine at a moment’s notice.

Best $20 I’ve spent in a long time. Best rubber band trick since crazy mans handcuffs. This is easy to learn and do with a little practice. I’m picky about what I add to my close up set. This rocks, Thanks!

You just might want to pick this one up. This is some high octane rubber band magic! When these two guys get together, this is what happens. An absolutely mind melting demonstration of a rubber band being cleanly torn and then restored, multiple times!! And they all look great. I would have paid 20 bucks just for the first phase...don't let this one slip by you. And if you don't do any band magic, get this and start. Thanks to Joe and Dr. Cyril Thomas for they're wonderful release.

I have some requirements for a 5 star review:

1. There has to be a good reason for every move ... no wavy wavy fakey fakey stuff

2. There has to be a story with multiple magic moments that build to a climax

3. The actual magic moments have to LOOK incredible

4. The sleights have to be within the reach of the average magician after a reasonable amount of work.

Convergence fills all these requirements. THE BEST rubber band routine I have ever seen!

Simply fantastic Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 21st, 2021
What a great piece of rubber band magic. I highly recommend this as it is a great addition to any rubber band tricks that you already do. And just think if you are working with rubber bands and one accidentally breaks you can go right into this. Fantastic job Joe.

Ok not going to lie I hate buying any magic on line. 9 times out of 10 it is so angle sensitive you would never be able to do the trick unless it was for a video. This trick! This trick you can do freaking surrounded!!!!! I am in love with this. Its not just a trick its a good 3-5 min routine!!!! freaking awesome. Freaking love it. Looks good. Ties in so nice with the end of any other rubber band trick. If you do rubber band magic at all freaking buy this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Going for the gold Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 18th, 2021
Joe and Cyril created something that absolutely destroys minds. Learned it last night and practised it for the camera and it looks SO REAL!
Pros:
-Impromptu
-Single-band! no need fo cover!!!!!!
-Joe's teaching is great as usual and as someone mentioned in the comments, he doesn't say Left hand or Right hand but "Dominant hand"
Cons:
-if you go for the final restoration, you can't really hand it out, but if you manage what you do after well, you don't really need to.
Get it, It's worth SO MUCH.

Great!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 20th, 2021
I'm really excited about Convergence. As expected it was a great thing again. I've learned a lot from Joe Rindfleisch over the years. Meeting him personally in Germany and learning from him was a highlight. About 90% of the Rubberband-Effects that I demonstrate are from him. I hope he comes back.

Bye Bye Broken Bands!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 23rd, 2021
This is the effect that your broken bands have been waiting for! Once you have this in your back pocket, the next time a band breaks in the middle of a routine, instead of awkwardly reaching for a new band, you can jump right into Convergence and come out looking like a champ!
Joe meticulously explains each phase of this beautiful routine and also throws in some bonus ideas and variations so you can give it your own personal touch.
It's important to note that you can also do this effect with a single band, or even a borrowed band as long as the spectator doesn't mind that you are breaking the band (because it is really being broken), but you're better off picking up a pack of Joe's bands anyway because they are absolutely the very best quality bands on the market.
A huge THANK YOU to Joe and Cyril for releasing this jaw-dropping effect!
