“I use my own Perfected Center Tear all the time. But I have to tell you this; I use a piece of paper from my pad. When I saw how clean Bill’s version looked with a business card, I had to learn it too. It is smart to have a variety of methods at your disposal. Dr. Bill’s Billet Tear is top notch and as good as it gets. If it means anything from a guy who has been ripping paper up for most of his life, take my advice and get this!” -Richard Osterlind
"The Dr's Billet Tear gets my highest recommendation and final endorsement as the best, most practical and undetectable center tear in history. Yet another amazing addition to the new generation of ultra-smooth billet work, this one is simply too good to miss! I've been using TDBT exclusively in my own private shows and public performances and several months in I'm still unable to find even a single fault in its psychology, timing, construction, execution and nearly infinite applications to everything I do ." - Jerome Finley
"The tear that I have been using for years has been moved to second in my arsenal. The Dr's Billet Tear is now my first choice." - Tony Razzano
"The Dr's Billet Tear really caught me by surprise! I was fortunate enough to get to experiment with this for several months and it has replaced all the other tears I used in my shows. I have to admit I never would have believed a tear could be this quick and practical, I thought the concept had been pretty much explored to death and then Dr. Bill comes up with this! What a great way to improve upon a classic idea." - Mauricio Jaramillo
"Ahh, Dr. Bill has been at it again. I believe I've been with him on this since the first tear and all the way to the final peek. Now don't take that wrong.... I didn't create this tear in any way, but I was there as Dr. Bill worked on The Dr's Billet Tear, confirming its ease and utility in my own performances with it.
The ride has been a lot of fun and, in the end, I now have a great tear that I use regularly. Dr. Bill has created the type of tear I like: simple, to the point, and with very little to go wrong. You can learn this one quickly and easily. You get a real nice chunk to peek and it happens in an instant. Or feel free to delay your peek if that's what the situation calls for, another fine feature of Dr. Bill's method.
I'm sure many will grab onto TDBT and make it part of their arsenal. It's one of those tears that once you do it a few times it seems to be locked into your memory. In the past I've learned many tears, but only two have stuck with me. I used those sparingly and for specific situations. The Dr's Billet Tear is so robust I use it in ANY situation.
Congratulations to Dr. Bill and his new contribution to the field of mentalism!" - Greg Arce
"I've been lucky to become friends with most of the world's full-time performing mentalists, through my Conversations With Mind Readers interviews. To a man, all the pro's favor simplicity and practicality of method over almost anything else. When they are in the heat of performing, the last thing you want to be using is technique that, unconsciously, you know damn well looks suspect or is prone to mistake. That is why I love Dr. Bill Cushman's Center Tear. It meets all the criteria of the working pro mentalist: It is easy. Practical. Looks natural, since the peek is done in the tearing "action." And, it's something you will have confidence doing, therefore you reduce the chance of wreaking with "magician's guilt" when performing it.
I've been using Bill's center tear since the first day he shared it with me. I am pretty sure that YOU will be using it immediately too, once you are exposed to its method. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED." -Ben Cummings, founder, ConversationsWithMindReaders.com
A piece of paper or card holding a secret thought folded safely within, is torn straight down the middle, once in each direction. Tear a third time if you wish.
The peek may be instant or delayed. Your choice.
