OK si I have owned this since release but finally just started working it like a good boy. I'm getting better at it but was also wondering the kind of typical patter that some of you utilize while starting and working through the tear?

I realize that much may be routine dependent - I hope this doesn't come off as ignorent.

Thanks (and thanks to the good Dr. for sending the easier to watch videos!)

I don't know about anyone else but I feel CT's are only truly appropriate when the tearing of the billet has some relevance to the effect. I always think it seems off, psychologically, to tear up a billet with a happy memory, or the name of a loved one, or even neutral info like numbers. I have been using DBT to erase bad memories, or worries etc. I notice the Dr's own routine follows this approach. That being the case I ask them if they can visualise the problem just before I perform the peek. I find asking a question creates a nice off-beat to do the dirty work, as the specs focus shifts inward for a moment.

Regarding justification of the tear, either TPR (which is an excellent read and full of viable routines) or I do a 2 phase routine -

Pre show: imp a spec's first love

In show: have that person write down on a business card something they are allergic to, have a phobia of or just don't like. On a second card they just project their mental image of a first love (justified in pre show by instructions given). One of the two cards is easily differentiated from the other (choose your favourite method).

The folded cards are mixed and spec takes one in each hand - using muscle reading you are able to identify which hand holds the allergy/phobia card because of the weakness in that limb. You then tear it up, asking them to imagine the power that the allergen/ fear has dissipating.

You move on to reveal the name of the first love from the blank business card using any reveal that suits your style (for me it is psychological so I ask them to recite the alphabet aloud, then silently and finally via their hand on my shoulder willing me to write the correct name. Half way through is process I pause and
reveal the contents of the first card, almost as if this needs to be named and put away before we can fully concentrate on the positive associations of the loved one.

Because the reveal is an aside and has psychological distance from the tear, the impact seems strong and while it is early days, I am enjoying working with this framing. Feel free to work it if this is something you'd like to play with too Smile

That sounds terrific Andy. I used to do something similar with the name of a place from their past that they never want to return to, and the name of a place they hope to visit in future-then dress up the presentation with some cold reading.

I bought the download for this tear and was very happy with the purchase. I personally believe it was worth every penny and more! Just my two cents. Smile

So this is a great tear. I also just picked up T-Rex. You really need to buy both. They both are excellent and do the job.

You just can't buy one!

When I first read this I was a little dubious about the angles.

But then I performed it for some friends and I could not believe that you get such a HUGE peek and yet it is invisible to the audience.

It was truly an astounding moment for me!

Now using TDBT for some month. In no occasion somebody did even suspect there was the possibility for me to see anything.
But the most convincing proof came from a friend, a top creator and performer, who didn't know it, and who confirmed that even knowing that I was going to t*°r and p**k, he did not notice anything at all.
This happened in a bar, across a two-feet long table. (That is: under one's nose).
No better endorsement, Dr. Bill!

Thanks Ben and Danyel. I love getting reports from the trenches!

In the ad, when I wrote, "What should you look for in a Center Tear? As little as possible," I was being a bit cheeky but that is really what it is all about. Same with Iain Dunford's use of the word "Mundane" in his review as I feared that it might be misinterpreted but he couldn't have been more spot on when it comes to billet work and what I strove for with TDBT.

Hey, Danyel, feel free to send me a PM with the name of the performer! You have piqued my curiosity, lol.

Just adding my voice to the chorus: TDBT is a great investment (as is anything from the good doctor)- the step-by-step is first class, and the videos really help enormously. Excellent

First and foremost Dr. Bill is a gentleman. I ordered it yesterday morning on the Outlaw Magic site and received it a few hours later. I had some questions which Bill answere dpromptly and then sent the video file separately so I could voice them on my iPad.

Now on to the billet tear itself:

Amazing, easy, but not self working. I need to practice on a bit of finesse and timing needed to do this well. Is owed it to my 12 year old who is a budding mentalist. He can usually Spot when I do something, not this time. I showed it to him and just like in the video, I asked if he saw the peek. He said "No" I look forward to when I feel comfortable with this. The tearing of the business card is set up in such a way that it too is easy and doesn't need to be muscled. The rest of my thoughts are echoed in the previous accolades.

Highly recommended!!!
