Anyone know anything about this. Have wanted to do a torn and restored for a while but as I perform strolling there's not been one that's ticked all the boxes for me this looks good though although its not a piece by piece.

Its available on pre-order at penguin, would be interested to here what people think.

I ordered it a love it. Highly recommended. Great way to do a torn and restored looking effect with instant reset for your next performance. Hope this helps.

So, I'm curious... what do we think the spectators care about with an effect like this. That the card IS restored... or how it is restored? Any thoughts on if a one piece at a times get a better reaction from the masses?

Hi Kex

From what I can see and undertstand, the restored effect is strong. However, the way that it restors can have a much bigger impact as it provides more astonishment.

I can only base this on my experiences of watching spactator reatctions and also by studying my own sence of wonder. My reasons are that if a card is restored peace by peace in a visual way then it's looks like real magic to the spectaor and even a lot of magicians get caught up in the beauty of the effect.

Another nice way if restoring a card is by using fire such as in Tourched and restored. This is because the spectators can see their card torn and the set alight. The bonus being that when you hand the card back to the spectator it has burnt marks on the back of the card.

Just thought I'd share my thoughts

I've seen an all at once restoration that look like real magic as well... and equally as impressive as the piece by piece. Imagine all the pieces put in a plastic baggie and then with one shake they visually restore... quite impressive.

Who was that by kex? sounds awesome. Generally I tend to think that a good visual piece by piece restoration looks best but a lot of them often seem to be high on prep, angly or unable to use a signed card, this seems to have all those bases covered so think I might purchase.

Well whats cool about this is that it can be signed and I actually experimented with it in my ACR it gets great reactions because I had the spectator pull the card and it restored. To me a card that can restore itself is ambitious enough. But I don't really think this is that good for a stand alone effect, only an addition to a routine.

Good call morpheis, I do various routines involving a signed card so its definately worth getting as a bit of a flashy ending for one of those. I really like the sound of that trick Kex, hopefully the creator will release it soon, I'm sure it'd kill.

Just performed this last night at a bar, guy freaked out and knocked his beer over on to his friend next to him. It got a great reaction, even if he was drunk. Great little effect.

Effect looks good, but I'd prefer traditional 4 peice tnr over one piece restoration

Looks like a more visual version of the old effect Business Merger by Doug Bennett, except with playing cards instead of business cards.

Torn Too is really, actually, very cool. It's a TNR effect for those that don't want to work hard on extra sleight of hand, AND it looks great. Even for you hardcore finger-flickers...this is a cool addition to have handy.

Why?
It's not just the flash restoration, but the patter that really...REALLY pulls in laypeople because they think you're explaining it to them (much like Roger Klause's "Red & White").

And if nothing else, the DVD is fun to watch. Danny is really humorous, though informative, here. The construction of the gimmick is very well explained, and it's worth every penny I spent.

Recommended.
