I bought Re-Attached from magic notes yesterday. This is my 1st review, so please bear with me. I do not know any other torn and restored card effects and I got this one mainly because the price was right (spent too much on my girlfriend on Christmas) and because I like to see what non-famous magicians have to offer. I have bought Zach Allen's Fabrications also and liked it. I also supperted sleight geek and some of their material when they had their site a year ago.

I have already learned and performed this trick. I am an intermediate magician and the moves on here are doable for even beginners. The set up was very easy and I liked the fact that there is more than 1 way to perform this. There are multiple "conclusions". The e-book is 22 pages I think-it looks real professional. There are many pictures that guide you through the effect step by step. He exlains all the moves very well and it all made sense to me. The changes are very visual and easy. The secret is pretty amazing in the fact that it is so simplistic.

The effect starts out by the spectator picking a card-then he/she folds it into quarters. You take the card back and rip it into quarters along the creases-you show and count out all 4 pieces-then the magic happens--piece by piece you restore the selected card-after the card is restored you get the creases out-- and show the card is now 100% restored.

That is what is called the basic ending in the mnauscript. There is also a signed card version where is signature disappears to allow the card to be 100% restored and there is also a joker card ending which is cool. I have been playing with this all day and when I get back to school I am going to freak some people out! My mom liked it better than my other card tricks-she is probably getting bored with my ACR routine! She was happy to see something new and different.

The only con I see is you need a duplicate card-I don't know if that's what all the T&R effects need, but you will need the duplicate card for sure. There are some moves you will need to practice.

Well, I hope you liked my review- I don't know all the places this trick is available, but I found it at magic-notes in a download format-PDF file. The price was $12. I hope I covered everyhting-if you have any questions, feel free to send me a message.

I give it a 9 or 9.5/10

I was one of the reviewers for this card effect. And I truly enjoyed this effect. It really had some easy moves. It was not diffucult like other versions. I have always stayed away from T&R cards because of the complexity that was involved. This effect really brings true magic to an easier level and I had a great time playing with this effect. I have shared with several people already and have gotten great responses with the effect.

Enjoy.

I used it for the 1st time on the street today and found it works well in that environment. You also do not need to restore the whole card I don't think-- When I did it today there were 2 people watching. I did the signature version and after I put the pieces together I tore it in half and gave them each a piece as a momento!

Im thinking about egtting another T&R effect. I don't think I need one, but I am a bit curious what else and what other methods there are. This is one of my strongest magic effects now!

Thanks Taylor for your support-When I created Re-Attached I was trying to make the easiest T&R even and I think I have done that. This effect took me a lot of time and trial and error-so much so that I have an addition to the PDF that I may or may not add-it is an alternate ending that I now use most often when performing it. Im still trying to get a demo vid together so everyone else can see what it looks like-thanks again for the purchase!

What is the different of this trick than others like Daniel Garcia's "Torn" or "Ripped and Restored" by Yves???

Do we need to put the two others pieces on the pocket or the whole pieces is on the view all the times???

When we iron the creases, do we need to hold the whole deck as a support when we do the "move" like "Unripped" effect?
I mean, could we just hold the card in front of our body when we iron the crease like David Copperfiel did???

Hi there,

I created this trick. It is very different from all the other T&R's. Personally, I feel it is also one of the easiest. You can either keep the pieces in view the whole time, or you can put them in the pocket. I include explanations for both. I have included 5 different ways to end this routine. Including a very easy ending, which I use most often, and you do not iron out the creases when you do it. Yes, when you iron out the creases, you will need the rest of the deck again. I have never had a problem with that when it comes to the spectators. when I iron out the creases, I use their hand--its all up close, in your face magic.

Murphy's Magic Supplies has the booklet in stock for dealers to get. I took it off Magic Notes as I no longer wanted to sell it as a download. If you are interested in a copy, feel free to PM me. I have a few copies here at the house.

Yours

Lance,

Just want more question:

Do we need a cover of our hand when we restore the card?
and each time we restored the pieces, could we show both of the pieces? because as you know, with the Torn effect by Daniel Garcia, when we restore the last pieces, we could not show both of the pieces. We just pretend holding the last pieces....

So how does this effect compare to Torn and/or Ripped and Restored? I own both of those and the handling is 'okay' but would like something a bit easier. Smile

I think if I answer your question above, I could tip off the secret. Smile I can say this, When I perform this effect, When I end, I have no pieces to ditch. This is a very original handling of a T&R restoration and very easy to perform. I have learned so many T&R's and the only one I perform is Re-Attached because it seems less risky and less.... bulky. Yes, you use your hand for cover for a split second at times during this effect, as with most of the other T&R's.

Hey Wulfie66,

This is such a new effect that not many even know about it. I have a digital video camera and when I have some extra time, I can make a video. I think the same day someone gets this trick, they will learn it well enough to perform it and if they have a video camera could make a video as well. I think it is that easy.

Vball,

I will work on one and hopefully within a week I will have one. I do not have any idea how to do any editing or what not. All I can do is shoot the trick from start to finish-- it would be pretty raw. haha but that's the way we all like it anyway! I will let you know when I have something decent put together.

Lance,

Are you familiar with J.C. Wagner's original "3/4" restoration effect (where the spectator keeps one piece of the card at the end and the other 3/4 of the card is restored)? How does the handling (i.e., ease of handling) of your version compare to that version? NoteL J.C. later came out with a full card restoration with vastly different handling. I am not asking for a comparision of his later version. All I'm trying to ascertain is if your handling is as easy as the handling or J.C's original version.

And, I am assuming that your version is a full restoration. I too would be interested in viewing a demonstration video of your effect when you get it ready.

Thanks.

Mike

I am familiar with Wagner's One Tear At a Time, but not his 3/4 card restoration. Where can I find that effect?

JC's original can be found in "7 Secrets" or on "Easy To Master Cards Tricks Volume 5". It isn't a "one piece at a time" but is very easy and very straighforward.
