Topic: Ripped and restored, Ending Clean...
Message: Posted by: MAGICTOM (Jun 14, 2002 08:16AM)
I have developed an interesting way to end clean on the Ripped and restored by Yves.
I am interested in getting together with a few others in kind of a workshop on ideas to make this effect even easier than it already is, (if thats possible.. wonderful Trick)
e-mail me if you are interested in brainstorming and only if you have purchased the video/DVD, lecture notes, or rights to the trick. Proof will be required. I dont want any secrets given away to those looking for a freebie.

Hand them back the card... with the "dirty" hand... this psychologically throws them off because you wouldn't be doing this if the hand had something in it. I do this all the time when I do a bill switch to mismade... I hand them the bill with the hand that has the TT and hold my other hand awkwardly down. The attention is now on the bill and the other hand.

That's some great psychology Greg, I use that method as well in several routines and it never fails me.

After I restore it I put it halfway into my shirt pocket without letting go of the card and thumb off the you know what and look them straight in the eyes,put the biggest grin on my face,arch my eyebrows up and down a couple of times and say you didn't want to see the card did you.When they scream yes I pull the card back out and hand it to them. :coffee:

which is better? reparation or reformation. should one go for more moves opposed to less moves?

I think you should use whichever one fits your style. So far I've found the Ripped & Restored fits me and is easy to do, but I've only performed it once for another magician. I still do Paul Harris' Ultimate Rip Off and probably will continue to do that because I generally don't believe in adding moves when none are needed... don't run if they are not chasing you.
