2015 has been a good year for mentalism and with some strong releases. For me, one of the most eye-opening has been The Underground Bottom Tear. Although I have seen various versions of the CT, I have never been particularly comfortable with the necessary tears and manoeuvres. However earlier this year Dustin Dean released this and, following favourable comment by those whose opinion I greatly respect, I decided to buy.

Not only were the instructions extremely well set out but had links to films showing the actual moves. This I found really helpful and also showed how simple yet utterly effective UBT can be. And having ripped up quite a few cards, I found the moves flowed well and with nothing untoward to see - well, from the spectator's point of view that is!

But another bonus were the two accompanying routines, one by Ever Elizalde and the other by Robert Cosley (Red Devil). Both are well known for their creativity and the two routines are really excellent making the whole release wonderful value.

When it comes to CT's and what can be impromptu mentalism, this is definitely worth getting and has my highest recommendation.

A very nice review from verified purchaser Eric on Penguin:

"This is the first tear that I actually feel comfortable using. It looks so natural and it is really simplistic. One downside would be that for it to be perfect it would need to be a very specific type of card stock, however he goes over how to combat that which completely solves the problem! Great effect overall and will use in my repertoire quite often!"

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to let you guys now I have a really great bundle deal going on at my website. All of my works for only $45 (including this tear)!

Also, I just received this email from a purchaser named Robert:
"Hi Dustin,

I've tried out your UBT, and it's great! Very nice. The tear is super easy and consistent in its read results. Your UBT is now my CT of choice!"

Another review from a purchaser on Penguin! Very glad to hear this one:

"Easiest, most consistent tear I've ever used..
I've used other CT's before: Osterlind's PCT, Barrie Richardson's CT, and even one by Lee Earle. But this is the CT I'll be using from now on. I love Dustin's UBT because you're in "read mode" very quickly and easily. Highly recommended."

I've got to say I really like this. I don't have a lot of CT opportunities in my routines but this is one I'll be using when I do. I use a lot of business cards to write predictions, demonstrate stuff, etc, and this is, in my amateur opinion, the best way to use a business card as a b****t and get a clean p**k. Real winner from an innovative young mind.

I also find this a very useable technique. For index cards I like Think Pink, but should I need to tear a business card this is very good. It does seem like most of the cards I've tried need the little bit of pre work, but a box cutter nick works perfectly.

Just want to add that the first tear is a bit of a knack. At first, all the cards seemed to need the pre work, but after a little practice, the first tear seems to work fine. Not sure what it was, but just give it a little time and tear a bunch of cards.
