I just ordered no tear torn and restored newspaper by Tony Stevens. I was wondering if anyone has this trick. Also, I was wondering if you can tear the paper in front of the people. I saw a demo online and it showed the paper already torn. Let me know and how easy is it to reset the gimmick.

No, the pages are already torn. If you want to tear them first, then you'll have to switch the packet, which makes No Tear, and the whole restoration rather unmagical.

However having them pre-torn kills the dead time of the repetitive, pointless action of tearing up the paper (pointless because you are about to restore it anyway). It is much easier to create a logical routine with the No Tear.

If you want to tear the paper and then restore it, then you've bought the wrong version, and you need to look into the classic Al Baker method, or Pat Page's 10sec paper tear, or Gene Andersons method, or any of the other countless methods that I'm sure other drinkers here in the café will be only too happy to contribute.

You won't be disappointed, it is a good T/R effect.

If you use patter with this, I something along the lines of:

I always tear out interesting news articles and file them away to read later (instead of keeping the whole newspaper). *I then read some humorous or interesting made up article titles* "Sometimes I almost wish I had just kept all the newspapers though, not nearly as messy (perform the restoration).

Mark Mason (who produces two versions of this; one for adults, one for kids) has a very funny routine for the "No Tear" T&R. Pretty much identical to the type of routine that Derek describes. When Mark demo'd this at his Seattle lecture earlier in the year he had us in hysterics.
