Sorry, I have to pan this one. It looks like it can be great but the teaching is horrendous. He is
constantly fidgeting with the pieces while explaining the moves. There is not more than a second
where he is not rotating, re-positioning or moving the piece while explaining. In addition his hands
cover a good portion of what he is trying to explain. I find this virtually impossible to watch.
It really needs to be re-shot in a professional manner.

I was blessed with the opportunity to have this performed inches away from my face. His hands were
so empty and clean and I was floored. After learning the method, I can safely say that this is the
best T&R I’ve seen. I’ve seen many methods from Wayne Houchin, Matthieu Bich, Daniel Garcia, Brent
Braun, etc. and no disrespect to them, but this one takes the cake 100%

This is a great trick with a clever set of moves, but unfortunately, Chris mumbles and grumbles when
he is explaining it so it takes twice as long to understand what he is saying. When he performs the
trick for an audience he is perfectly clear, but it is only when he is explaining it that his voice
gets rumbley grumbley and soft and slurred and makes it difficult to follow.However, I can always
back up and watch it again and try to speak the directions along with him so I finally ended up
having a great new trick in my repertoire.

This is probably one of the cleanest, most visual Torn n' Restored card tricks I have seen. Chris
takes time to completely explain the handling and each detail. This should be in the arsenal of any
walk-around, or card, Magician. Well done Chris!!!

Chris has made the TNR plot exciting again! This is by far one of the most practical piece by piece
restoration you can perform, so do yourself a favor scroll up and add Together to your cart!

This is very clean and fair, however I am not fond of the "I'm going into my pocket to pick up the
piece" part of the trick that happens all the time... Too fiddly! This trick reminds me of an old
effect by Charlie Frye, which I actually do consider to be slightly better. But overall, well done
I have been trying to get all of the moves, but it's taking me forever to get them. I guess that if
you have many hours to keep watching the video you can eventually master it, but it's not easy, at
least not for me.
this is a first class effect it takes a little learning but once you have got it you will have a
real worker.i have had a number of T&R effects over the years but this is the best.
Awesome illusion may take a little time to master but I'm certain smooth presentation will be
i always love to do the wayne houchin TNR(true astonishments)and loved the idea of the lady in the
box...with that really beautiful peace of magic
this one s intresting in the same way to me
as it is in its beauty and i think i ll take this as a follow up on the TNR in the box(oldschool-
newschool plot or telling that i ll do it now without the box...
the trick itself is really
really clean filled with nice little touches. usually TNR tricks used to have suspicious movements
in which you assume sneaky things going on.
in this variation these movements are simlpy
invisible which is so nice
the explanation it self was really a bit confusing but i ve
seen worse... it s ok, you will get it.
I do a lot of coinmagic and advice to think about a
steal into edgegrip!!!! it makes it again cleaner as it already is
and garret thomas has a
routine called "Big coin little purse" there is a certain movement which is very very useful and
which polishes this to more than a gold piece!!!
Brilliant trick.....5 stars
