if you are gonna take the time to a set up for a torn and restored then get a more visual effect. my
suggestion would be torn too, which uses a similar principal. there is too much busy work and set up
for a torn and restored effect without the eye popping visuals

1. If you are new to card magic you will not be disappointed as you will learn one of the best card
sleights in magic, once you have it down you will not stop doing it in or out of this effect trust
2. Oz does an ok job, but i think the presentation needs altering as the effect doesn't
quite make sense at the beginning where the spectator can only peek at the chosen card as if the
magician is withheld from this information he tears a piece off then looks for the other half
straight away, just too fishy! but this is easily fixed with some creativity.
3. Of course
it can be done with a borrowed deck if they have the same deck as YOU! i can't condone this being
stated in the demo.
All credit to the creator of this effect though.

I don't like it, it is kinda messy,
-have to set it up every time
-takes a few minutes to
-have to practice
-slight of hand required
-need to practice for 2-3 hours to
really get it down smoothly
-but if you are willing to do all this the trick is great! just not
-I recomend two dollar window! A lot eazier trick, but has a big effect!

unless their deck matches. The promise of being able to use a spectator's deck is misleading. If
someone has a generic one way deck from a tradeshow with a different face design, for example, or a
bridge sized deck, then you can't do the trick unless you made special arrangements in advance to
match this deck. Unfortunately, my spectators don't use bicycle decks, which I use. They use
whatever is cheap or whatever was given to them.
Other than that, it's a great trick.
But to clarify, unless the deck that is handed to you is typically the deck design that you
normally use, then you can't use the spectator's deck.

It's great because it does not utilize any stupid props. Other than that, it does take practice but
once you get it, your audience will love you. Add to cart!
This torn and restored effect is a really good one. In the demo, they tell you that it can be done
with a borrowed deck, which is true (sometimes), but it is a bit misleading. You can use a borrowed
deck but there is some set up so it isn't impromptu. You will need to pick up an item to use with
this trick but it can be found almost anywhere and it is relatively inexpensive. Overall, this is a
really cool visual restoration. I recommend it.
"Is this for real?" I asked myself when I first saw it. YES, it is! And it is so simple! You need
some to master some basic moves before it looks flawless, but when you do your audience will go
nuts! I do this trick with queens, kings, aces and so on. Works every time!
This effect is perfect. The illusion is really strong, and they fall for it every time. I would
definitely suggest buying it as a torn and restored effect! Really powerful! It just might not work
if the lighting is in one specific direction, but that probably won't happen.
Great restored card, always works, easy to perform. Only problems I've had with this one was there's
a bit of setup and sometimes the gimmick just gets lost. Worth it all though for a simple to learn
and perform restore that is extremely visual and easy to believe. CATCH: Different gimmick required
for repeat performances to the same person! Still a great restore and worth the price! Responses
I think this trick is really worth to buy if you have some experience with cards.If you are a
beginner i would wait intill you can do some tricky stuff with cards.At the beginning its a bit hard
but if you learn it about 20 times you can almost master it...
