I don't learn well from the printed page. I'll have to stick with DVD's. Thanks, though!!

I just received Torn, and I must say it is the best I have seen to date. I have Ripped and Restored, but Torn has that extra touch and the handling I think is easier. The tape starts off with Daniel doing some great magic highlights, and I really hope he comes out with a video soon. Smile

There is a streaming video of it on the magicsmith website and showing the last piece openly. On ripped and restored it is very easy. You are palming the last card anyway so why not the last piece as well? Just hold it on the card and so the move and it goes into fingerpalm.

I've got to say that the first time I saw Daniel do his routine at the Castle, I was thinking that there's no way on Earth the routine could look that incredible without using tape or glue (or run-on sentences). However, I was wrong. Set up is minimal. The spectator can use any card, and there's no fuss with glue or anything. Not too difficult either.

Of course there's the issue with going to the pocket. A lot of the time I feel that the simplicity and trick photography aspects of "Torn" compensate for the fact that you're going to the pocket. I've learned and often use both "Torn" and Hollingworth's "Reformation" because they're both great routines. "Reformation" is pretty much a perfect routine (although it's more difficult to do). Learn both and use whichever one suits your mood at the time. Good Luck!

PUZZLED. Just spoke to Chris at MagicSMith a few hours go and he told me that the Garcia item had been discontinued due to complaints that it was primarily a duplicate of --I forget the name--that other video of Torn and Restored by the two Frenchmen.
Where did you guys get it?

Yeah, honestly I saw a performance clip of it online, (I think it was Garcia doing it)and my first reaction was that it is just Ripped and Restored by Y Doumergue. Perhaps I was unable to appreciate the subtle differences but they looked the same to me.

The routines are different enough to justify separate versions. Daniel Garcia even holds up the Yves dvd and talks about it on his video. I highly recommend TORN. Smile

I don't know the difference, but when I see the Ripped & Restored demo I see a different effect. The card is held differently, the hands cover it much more etc.

Now this may just be that Daniel was more creative with the SAME routine and STRETCHED its ability to really get the most out of it but even if that is the case, I am glad I
own TORN.

If the moves are the same (And I can see how they might be when considering that the last piece is restored the same) then the effect is still different and in my mind THAT is what makes it its own thing.

The difference is in how the first two pieces join together. That is what got everyone so excited who saw Daniels handling. It's simple direct and brilliant. Other than that , they are the same if I am not mistaken.

Well I do Ripped and Restored and after seeing the demo of Torn it seems to me they are very similar. I would say Torn is a variation (more refined) of Ripped and Restored because the core idea and method is the same; the difference is in the subtleties of each join - as others have stated. Because of this I can see how there might be a dispute. It's a difficult line drawing problem trying to figure out when something is a new effect and when it is a variation.

Bottom line is that both of them look great.

Hey Guys,
Thanks again for all of those who have enjoyed performing torn and for all of the kind words that you have said. da5id, I think you hit the bottom line when you said that it is tough to distinguish whether an effect is original or not. There was a dispute whether I should or should not put this effect out. After talking to many high names in magic I finally decided that I should share this effect with the community. For all of those who are not going to purchase the effect, that's ok. I understand. For those who do want it, as of right now there is only one place to purchase it

"Torn" HAS NOT been discontinued. It is still a hot item and I hope that it continues to be.
Thanks again
Daniel Garcia
