I have heard wonderful things about the Baxt Newspaper tear, but I still don't understand what is so great about it. I know what a newspaper tear is, I have the Gene Anderson and the No Tear and a couple more; I don't remember their names.
I understand it eliminates setup time but what other advantages does it have.
Magically,

Try Joel Bauers's (Torn and Restored Newspaper) it is a flash restoration and the gimmick resets instantly and can be used many time over. The gimmick is easy to make,

That, and you don't have to use chemicals to prepare.

Vinsmagic, where can one acquire this gimmick?

I second the recommendation for this video. It is a combination of ideas by other magicians. He credits the relevant people in his video. All in all, the best T&R I have seen.

Hi Shomemagic:

I saw a video of the Baxt Newspaper Tear at the Hocus Pocus website. It looks good, but seems WAY overpriced. I'd say to save your money on this one.

I agree with the others: Joel Bauer's Tear is wonderful. Also, the No-Tear version is just as good as the Baxt, and a lot cheaper.

I'd say that Baxt's method isn't ground breaking by any means but it is a magical secret that should be kept out of the hands of those that are mildly interested. If you do a lot of newspaper tears, or are considering doing so then this may be for you. There are a ton of other methods out there that may be more cost effective and you might want to consider them.
Me personally I like the convenience and ease of preparation that Baxt has to offer and for those alone I was willing to shell out the dough.

I saw the BAXT tear in a live preformance. It looks awesome so you can't really go wrong! Unless it is ridiculessly overgimmicked. Smile

Performing on cruise ships requires that your act be set up in 15 minutes or less due to traffic and heavy rotational shows. The Robert Baxt Newspaper Tear is perfect for me and others who perform many shows back-to-back, even though I utilize the gimmick differently for an unusual kind of tearing effect which involves no newspaper! This means it is extremely versatile, and anyone with half a brain could adapt it to other effects and methods. Even if you don't perform back-to-back shows and are tired of having to reset so much, it is easily worth the asking price and will save you endless amounts of time in the long run, more than making up for its purchase price.
