Butterfly torn is an extremly visual and streamlined handling of the torn and restored card. You can perform this effect with the card face up or face down.

The spectator freely chooses any card, it can even be signed on the face and on the back. The card is then fairly torn into four pieces and restored in one visual moment.

In this project, you’ll learn 2 different handlings:
– A basic handling
– An impromptu handling

Nice effect I love torn & restored effects, and this one incorporates expert handling from a few sources
The only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars is that this will not replace my T&R,
But if you are learning a T&R from scratch then the teaching here is meticulous, and the lessons will stand you in good stead for the future :)

Butterfly Torn by Yvan Garmy Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2019
This is a fine bit of trickery !!! This is sweet and as it is in magic, make it smooth. Yvan was very careful to point out the finer points of making this doable and believable. Without practice I could see it looking too mechanical. In reality, you can make it look as good as Yvan does. The moves make sense, the restoration looks awesome. Pay close attention to the cleanup, you'll see what I mean when you study the tutorial. I really, really love the business card bonus, this could be an awesome way to give your card to someone. It uses the same principal and I think it is a great idea. All things considered, it's something I am definitely going to use.

A fantastic flash restoration. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2019
Wow, this is a bit of genius. Quite simple to get into.

I usually do Karl Hein’s Heinstein’s Dream or Brent Braun’s Torched and Restored for a flash restoration and being that this is truly impromptu and is almost as good, I have an anytime beautiful piece of magic. The handling will take a small bit of practice, nothing major.

Great price, great release, impromptu and almost as good as the lightly gimmicked ones I do.

This is a worker.

It’s quick, it's visual, it seems impossible, it’s takes some practice but what a great T&R. Yvan does an amazing job of teaching this trick but also does something I have never seen … he teaches it for both right and left handed people. As I am a lefty and have to spend so much extra time learning some tricks, THANK YOU Yvan. For the ‘lefties’ out there, this is great! The over-the-shoulder shots are perfect for learning this effect, looks like you are already doing it with someone else hands - weird but great for learning purposes. He even does a slow-motion version of the process so you don’t miss anything.

I and am sure that you have learned and performed many T&R routines some more work than others, some harder than others and some better than others, I think that you will really like this one and will be willing to put in the time needed to perfect it. It’s not that hard but like others, will take some time. Yvan will teach you a second version using a signed card as in the demo. You also get a bonus effect using business cards. Wow … all this for under ten bucks! This is definitely a worthwhile buy.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2019
A really nice torn and restored routine.
It really should be more money so this is a great buy.
I like Daniel Garcia’s torn but it takes a little bit more time than this one when I do table hopping.
I believe this one is going to replace Daniels for a quick close-up routines.
And it is always nice to have one or two tone and restored cards in your repertoire.
The instructions are very clear and the video and audio was really well done.
This is one you should purchase right away and start practicing

Well taught torn and restored Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2019
This is a great handling for torn and restored cards that incorporates several other methods. This is easier than most T&R methods and is particularly good for novice and advanced pros. I really appreciate the review handling in slow motion. This helped me perfect the appearance. The bonus effect uses the same method but allows the use of business cards.

A nice effect that is well worth the ten bucks.

This has got to be one of the hardest hitting penguin download effects a spectator will ever witness. Seriously, rip a card in 4ths, restore it with there signature in tack.

Bloody devious and magnificent at the same time.

I'm pulling this out of my hat immediately.

A great TNR Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2019
Butterfly Torn is a great instructional video. The production quality is fantastic. I’m a big fan of TNR and this one is very good.

I only gave it 4 stars because you have to bring a kind of large gimmick in and out of play and ditch it at the end. Even in the live performance, Yvan’s hand position is slightly awkward. On the download, there’s an unedited performance that clearly shows the awkward moment at the end of the trick.

That being said, this is some very clever thinking and I like that the card is signed front and back. I don’t love how mangled the card is at the end. I agree with the sentiment that a lot of magicians have that if one could actually fuse the fibers of pieces of a card back together, why can’t they make it look like new again and iron out the creases?

I may try this as a TNR dollar bill. I’ve performed a version of that trick 1000’s of times and I think the soft paper lends itself to more ditch options. This approach might give me a fresh presentation of that TNR. Creases in a dollar bill aren’t as odd-putting as with a card.

It’s a wonderful illusion and I look forward to giving it a try.

Easier than it looks Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2019
I watched the trailer and expected some knuckle busting moves. But no, with a little practice this can be done by anyone. I like the signed variation but it really isn’t needed. It’s just that can be done anywhere anytime.

Worth every penny.

Nice variation Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 13th, 2019
I am fairly certain most of us here know that once something is torn there's really only one way for it to eventually appear whole again. 'Butterfly Torn' is another variation, and Garmy includes a couple of different handling (one of which utilizes a signed card).

This is quick routine in performance, and though it does require some cleanup the presentation really looks nice from the spectator's perspective.
