Inside this slick covered PDF holds Jamie Daw's Torn and Restored, 'Faultless'.

As explained, nothing has been overlooked! 'Faultless' holds 32 pages with over 70 high quality photos, so you can easily follow along.

Also included is a short follow along video-filmed from the spectator's p.o.v. and the magician's p.o.v.-that way you know how everything looks from behing the scenes.

'Faultless' holds 3 workable, and practical Torn and Restored:

Cupid and the Devil: The back of the card changes colour during the process of restoring the card. It can even be signed!

Let's just say this is very clever, and I love the restoring/color changing aspect of the effect.

'Cupid and the Devil' does require a 'gimmick', but it is easily available and quite inexpensice. Another great point about the 'gimmick' is it will last a few performances... probably an entire night of performing 'Cupid and the Devil' over and over and then some before you have to 'construct' a new one. 'Cupid and the Devil' also has an 'instant-reset', so by the time you place the cards back in the box, you're ready to perform it to another group of spectators.

Now the restoration process is pretty slick. The first restoration is AMAZING, and you can tell that a lot of thinking went into this. The second and third restoration is quite the same then everyother piece.by.piece restoration, but the advantage here is you change the restored pieces. And at the end, you hand out the signed, now red [or blue] card... now imagine the reactions you would recieve from the spectators?


My Granddads Finger: My most performed version of Faultless, guaranteed to leave a tear in the eyes of your audience. Whilst creating a visual torn and restored effect. Not only that but your left with a beautifully strange giveaway item that happens in the strangest of ways.

Now, this one has been getting mixed views. Although this may not be everyone's cup of tea, Jamie does state that this works for him, but also includes many different handlings for 'My Granddads Finger' so you can find what suits you.

Jamie takes you through the process explaining the needed items and how to set-up everything. Then Jamie takes you step.by.step of how to perform 'My Granddads Finger'. Jamie also does a very good job here, and everything is taught with the upmost detail-as the whole PDF is.

Even though the story of 'My Granddads Finger' doesn't fit me, I do enjoy the ploy of the blank card turning into their named selection, and I do see myself performing this (excluding the performance story).

Jamie also includes many great subtleties, and performance ideas, and where to get named effect.

Lastly, Jamie includes a PERFORMANCE SCRIPT for 'My Granddads Finger', but I do feel with the right presentation, 'My Granddads Finger' can be a very powerful piece.


The Swindlers Switch: A pack small, play big version of Faultless that will leave everyone feeling absolutely hustled. Never before has a card transposition been so visual.

Jamie describes 'The Swindlers Switch' as a ‘get up and go’ version of Faultless, because there is no tearing stage.

Essentially, you present your audience with two, ready torn cards with paper clips. You restore one as it switches with the second on the table.

As throughout the PDF, Jamie takes you through the ins and outs of how to perform said T&R.

What I like about 'The Swindlers Switch' is the pack small, play big feature... the transposition feature involved in 'The Swindlers Switch' is also something that I really enjoy and I think that fits perfectly with this.


I throughly enjoyed 'Faultless' and thank Jamie for releasing his thoughts and performance workings for the T&R plot.

'Faultless' has now become my current T&R I perform now.

I normally don't give out an OVERALL SCORE, as everyone's performance style and character differs, but I do feel that 'Faultless' derserves a 9.5/10.
