"A very clever T&R idea. There are many practical methods. My favorite is the SMACK DECK!" -Marcus Eddie

"Francis Menotti's Smack is a DVD full of ideas and thoughts on the torn and restored card using a brand new gimmick. I don't do torn and restored cards often but for anyone who is looking for one Menotti will provide a simple, commercial, solution that can be performed in the real world. Pay close attention to the Back in Time plot and the Single double, these are hidden gems that make the DVD completely worth it." -Joshua Burch

"I love this. Visual and practical. Just like everything Francis does, it is extremely well thought out and developed through tons of real world performance" -Dan White

"The visual restore smacked me in my brain. Immediately started the wheels turning for opportunities to use this!" -Blake Vogt


SMACK! is Francis Menotti's lightning fast, in-your-face card restoration. The brilliant gimmick you receive enables this incredible restoration that DEMANDS great reactions.

Here's what happens:

You begin by tearing a SIGNED card into random jagged pieces. The torn pieces are handed to your spectator to see, taken back, and SMACK!!!


The card is then IMMEDIATELY given away as a souvenir.

Included is a custom-made gimmick and Francis Menotti's professional routine. Also included are many tips from Francis on how to present this effect in a variety of situations.

A Miracle restoration! Report this review

I’ve performed SMACK over 20 times and the reactions are fantastic. It’s not the one at a time 4 piece restoration, but an instant restore of their SIGNED, torn up card.

They see their signed card as you tear it up, so there is no doubt it’s their card. In an instant, it’s restored.
Watch the entire DVD before performing, because the DVD is loaded with extra routines, tips and handlings, not just the routine you see on the trailer.

I do Francis’s "Back In time” routine and have the torn up pieces placed in their palm and vanish them from their hand. The restored, signed card appears back on the deck, which they are holding! They are gob-smacked by the routine.

Don’t pass this one by!

Not for me.. Report this review

Clever but just not for me. The gimmick(s) is delicate and can be spotted by spectators if you're not careful and does require some crowd control. No disrespect to Menotti, I just don't think I'll be using this torn and restored and would recommend it to intermediate-advanced magicians to really get the most out of the effect.

It's decent but... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 16th, 2014
I love the thinking behind it. However I find that the 'gimmick' (without revealing it) is a bit hard to keep on you without giving it a dedicated pocket space. Not to say the gimmick is big or anything but it is something that is a tad delicate.

Overall it's quite a fun and neat trick, but it's not something I'll be using regularly as it does require a bit of a 'set-up' and requires you to carry the gimmick with you to be able to perform it.

Briljant effect and an even better dvd!

What you see is what you get + a lot of extra sleights that are usefull in so many ways, Francis teaches the "singular double" and this alone is worth the price

I was real excited when I bought this. Unfortunately this trick uses one move some people might not feel comfortable doing.
