Review: Paradigm Shift by Joe Rindfleisch

[vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=””][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_custom_heading text=”Reviewer: Dr. John deBeixedon” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Abril%20Fatface%3Aregular|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]At, rubber band magic master Joe Rindfleisch offers a download of his Paradigm Shift routine. In Paradigm Shift, Rindfleisch uses a simple rubber band switch as a cornerstone of an effective routine.  Utilizing Rindfleisch’s technique, a double looped colored band magically switches places with another loose colored band of a different color. To the observer, the effect can only be explained as magical.

Joe Rindfleisch’s instructions on presentation are fairly easy to follow, and with average dexterity one can reproduce the routine after 20-30 minutes of practice.  However, as with most magic effects, for Paradigm Shift to be truly impressive, one will need to practice the effect for many hours – until the point that it appears effortless.

On a practical note, Paradigm Shift is best performed with Joe Rindfleisch’s own brand of Elastraflex coated rubber bands. These latex-free rubber bands stretch further without breaking than any others I have encountered; without a doubt, the extreme stretchiness of these brightly colored bands accentuates the illusion of Paradigm Shift.

My only suggestion for improving the Paradigm Shift download would be for Joe Rindfleisch to add post-production arrow indicators to aid those who are learning the effect.
