One of my best purchases this year! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 1st, 2012
This may be my best purchase this year in terms of simplicity, visuals and to completely honest, "unexpectedly insane" reactions from the spectators. I'm actally basing this review primarily for that reason because I felt it was going to be one of those fly by tricks that people just say "Hmm .. Neat" but in contrast, they were mesmorized to the point of screams. There are many T&R's out there that require more difficulty and practice whereas you WILL be performing this the same day as you open it. The DVD is short, sweet and to the point. Just how I like it. As usual, Dave is very elaborate in his explanations and offers many different handlings, patter and misdirection, alhtough there is not much needed at all, trust me. Personally this is an "impromptu" effect. I'll just finish up say an "Ultra Gum" and after the cheers I'll begin "Damage". I say "Now this is one of my favoite card tricks of all time" and "accidently" rip a card and pretend to be devistated because it was my favorit decks. Then I say "luckily I'm a magician so I've been well trained to handle these situation" and simply HEAL the card on both sides in a way that anybody who does not have this trick yet needs to experience. The illusion, if performed correctly (which it will be) is mind boggling. When you heal the front they're already jumping up and down, but when you heal the back of their signed card and give it to them for complete examination, they just look like a deer caught in headlights. You can see in their eyes that it will take a few seconds for their brain to absorb what they've just witnessed.
Dave teaches how to make the gimmick in detail and it is a 2-5 minute job. And believe me when I say that the gimmick is UNBELIEVEABLE! For those of you who have ever read any of my reviews, you know that it is extremely rare for me to say that there are absolutely NO limitations. Even the cleanup is childs play .. there basically is no cleanup.
If you want reactions, bang for your buck and a whole lot of fun, BUY DAMAGE NOW. This was my first Dave Forrest purchase and I am an instant fan! Put the item in the shopping cart before you talk yourself out of itand you'll see what I mean.

When I got this, I was extremely disappointed. This trick is defiantly not for me. While clever it is still very blocky to me. It just doesn't seen to flow. I guess the patter is not my style. The packaging it comes in is the best packaging I think iv'e EVER seen. But I highly doubt I'll use this. Maybe play around with it for a while. And if you think you know how it works, you probably do.
Best tear and restore I've seen Report this review

I bought Damage because I am a medic and health care worker for my full time job. The idea of destroying a card and repairing it in front of co-workers eyes was what I wanted to do the most. Once I got the DVD and was doing this for co-workers I realized that this was one of the best idea's I've ever had when it comes to making a purchase. Forrest goes into detail of how to construct your gimmicks and shows extra handlings as well. Fantastic effect, I love it, and people love seeing me do it.

I like this one because the card is actually torn and when it is memded, it can be given to the spectator to keep. I found that the audience is off guard when the card is torn. No one expects it. It is a great visual impact. It is also easy to learn.
hand out the card afterwards! Report this review

I have purchased multiple torn and restored card tricks but this one is by far the most believable.
The gimmick is fantastic and easy to build your own as well, the DVD explains how to build one for yourself. And the best part is, you can reuse the gimmick over and over again.
Perform this trick and then follow it up with "the Hole" and you will look like a wizard!

...this is a really direct, easy to do, in your face illusion. And a perfect illusion it is. I have to agree with the other reviewer however, kind of surprised at the small amount of feedback on this one.....a little prep is required but it's well worth it!...pick this one up...you'll find some creative ideas with this one!!...
