I love it! It is a bit over priced but I don't care because I love the effect so much!
Joseph Brimicombe • England • 3/27/2013
Touch is amazing, but it's a bit basic considering it's price.
Ollie • England • 3/13/2013
A great impromptu trick, however, it can be a bit tricky to get the band 'in position' sometimes. Although it is great, it's not worth the price so I only gave it 4 stars.
Nathaniel Reeves • Colorado • 2/19/2013
This trick is the best rubber band trick of all time! Yes, even better than crazy man's handcuffs! They say the best magic happens in the spectator's hands. Well this is better, the spectator's hand IS THE MAGIC. That is very hard to find in a close-up, impromptu effect. Buy this if you care about impressing your audience.

A great addition to my arsenal of rubber band tricks.
Chris • USA • 12/20/2012
Not bad, but it's too simple for the price.
Rich • TX • 12/16/2012
Great! I do not mind when a DVD is parted out, I had wanted to learn this one.
John • KL • 12/13/2012
Brilliant trick. Always gets great reactions especially if you're in Japan.
John • VA, USA • 12/11/2012
Magic that takes place in or on the spectator's hand is some of the most powerful. Rubber band sleights are in that realm and this is no different. The video is not in English, and could use a few more angles when showing how you do the setup. Overall, an amazing effect - just be sure to practice it.
Philip Alexander • U.K. • 12/10/2012
The idea of a rubber band penetrating your hand onto a spectators is amazing, but I think that $6.95 for just one trick is a tad too much.
The only other downside is you need more rubber bands on your wrist, otherwise it looks kind of suspicious, but thats not really a complaint.
As far as rubber bands go, this is probably one of the best rubber band effects out there. If rubber bands are your thing, then get it.

Siddharth • India • 11/27/2012
A very convincing and impressing rubber band trick. I am pretty sure it's one of the best rubber band tricks out there!
Arman • Illinois • 11/26/2012
I like this move very much because it involves the spectators in such a way that it different then most tricks.
The magic literally happens in their hand and it looks impossible. This is kind of overpriced but it's great rubberband material.
Skipper • USA • 11/10/2012
Not bad, but it's too simple for thie price.
Jahid • London • 11/2/2012
Extremely visual and sure to get reactions. A tad overpriced for my liking though.
Teddy H. • England, UK • 9/15/2012
This is a very impressive effect, I have left spectators totally mind blown using this, don't think twice - get it.
Frodo • Mt. Doom • 8/20/2012
Best rubber band trick I know but still WAY overpriced.
Justin • USA • 8/17/2012
I use this when I go out, and I get great reactions. I highly recommend Touch.
Charlie • Bristol, England • 7/25/2012
Great, that's all I can say.
Benjamin Taylor • UK • 6/17/2012
This effect is utterly incredible! Spectators never expect a thing. Clean, easy to do, outstanding! The explanation is set to music, so you'll have to watch it a few times to get it, but it's still great. I promise you, you will walk away happy with this.
Ethan Wendt • USA • 5/28/2012
Best rubberband trick EVER!
Ian Deluca • Michigan • 5/6/2012
One of the hardest tricks to figure but one of the easiest to do. Great job Hanson!
Honey • SC • 2/17/2012
I myself wasn't very happy with it. I think the trick itself is very good, but I feel like a lot can go wrong. It can sting whoever you're doing it to. If you're not wearing more rubberbands, they can easily see something is going on. And you have to set up in front of them, which can often go wrong. Also, if you use a rubber band that is too small, it won't work.
Hanson Bomb • Taiwan • 1/13/2012
This is one of my favorite tricks.
Altrez • Kentucky • 1/11/2012
Very good effect!
Andrew Geffre • Aberdeen, SD • 12/31/2011
I'm often very critical of tricks but I have to say this is phenomenal. It blows people away and is easy to do. For such a low price, you can't go wrong with this purchase.
John Jacob Jingle Hiemer Schmi • Down the street • 12/23/2011
Great piece of magic, but the teaching isn't great. The fact that it isn't in English isn't much of a problem. However, the fact that there are no subtitles when the effect is being taught is an issue. You see the effect being done slowly and from behind a few times and that's it. Nothing is said in regards to size of the band, which color works best (say blue works best because it pops out better than skin tone, unless you're a smurf), or what to do if something goes wrong. Aside from the not too exceptional teaching, Touch is an outstanding effect that I do recommend.
Johnny Womack • Orlando, FL • 12/21/2011
One of the best rubber band effects that I've seen in a long while. Get this!
Yousaf Ejaz • Tampa, FL • 12/18/2011
I bought the DVD when it came out and it is an extremely powerful effect, although in the DVD you get 10 effects and 2 routines for Touch itself. I highly recommend you buy it!
Jack McCoy • Benbrook, TX • 12/3/2011
What a great trick. I've already had a blast with it. It just seems so impossible in the spectator's mind. What a bargain at this price!
Vardnan • Norway • 11/26/2011
Amazing! So easy and so nice trick! I love it!
chase • scarsdale • 11/25/2011
I love touch, it was simple yet powerful. There was one down side: the band is not gimmicked yet you can't use a spectators band because the size of the rubberband needed. Other then that, great trick, I recommend buying it.
James Jien • Taiwan • 11/25/2011
Hanson Chien is a pride of Taiwan's magic society. Touch has always amazed me. He truly understands the real meaning of magic — simplicity, impromptu, and visualization. Touch is a reflection of those ideals.
Andrew Rodan • England • 11/22/2011
Great buy. This is AWESOME band magic at its best, simple clever - a real fooler. Hats off Gentlemen.
Dominik • Croatia • 11/22/2011
Although this is a great piece of rubberband magic, it is greatly overpriced for a cut-out clip from another DVD. I'm the owner of Chien's original DVD Touch, and although it costs 30$, it consists of 10 different effects (including Touch) and 2 routines. This download is in fact just a part of the DVD.
Anthony Wong • Malaysia • 11/21/2011
Whoa! Touch is now on THEORY11! I've use this move over 4 months and can amaze many people! A very clever move!
Hanson Bomb • Taiwan • 11/21/2011
Greg Riley • Los Angeles California • 11/20/2011
I have to say this is definitely a great trick and I do it in my close up act every time. It's a great trick and must have!
Nathanael Bergen • Middle of America • 11/20/2011
This doesn't need a long, over done review; it needs three words: BUY. THIS. NOW.
Lorenzo Morelli • Italy • 11/18/2011
Asher Fry • Seoul, South Korea • 11/18/2011
I was so disappointed to see this being released on here for as cheap of a price that is was being released as well! This is a beautiful piece of magic that made its way into my repertoire within seconds! I suppose you can buy it but I'd rather you didn't and save the reactions for me...
Jon I. • Seattle, WA • 11/18/2011
This one just takes it to a new level. So visual and simple, there really isn't much more to add. Definitely a good one!
Kevin Schaller • Germany • 11/17/2011
For me this is the best rubber band trick EVER. I've been doing this forever!
Christopher Wiehl • New York • 11/17/2011
Hanson sure has a piece of great rubber band magic here! I actually perform touch EVERY time I do my rubber band routine.
The first time I tried this I said to myself "THIS is AWESOME! Imma gonna add it to my routine!" and guess what? I did! I think this download is also priced just right for this trick because you'll be getting a priceless amount of uses out of it!
Hondo • Taiwan • 11/17/2011
It really touched my heart!
