Well, some have a quiet thoughtful ending, some have an applause cue built in and a sudden ending. That is one thing.

For me, Axel Hecklau's Newsflash is the best I have had the pleasure working with because you don't have to fumble with your fingers behind the newspaper.

I'm familiar with them all, including Baxt (which I'm not sure was discussed here). I use Mason's no-tear method. Why? When I'm done, I fold it up and put it in my case and it's ready for the next show. It may not have the impact that the others have (especially for magicians), but to the spectators all they remember is the BAM flash restoration of the paper. There are some funny bits with the torn paper at the beginning, and to me this isn't as strong as actually tearing the paper, but like I said, the last 3 seconds is the selling point of the whole trick.

For you Torn & Restored Newspaper fans like me:

Here's a little tip....for NICELY PAID corporate shows, and, better-yet....for TRADE SHOW and HOSPITALITY SUITE SHOWS.... it's worth your time looking into having newspaper "Front Pages" custom printed at your local printer just for that show with a headline that has something to do with that Company....IE: ABC COMPANY WINS NATIONAL AWARD, or something to that effect.

This one tip gets me high-dollar repeat bookings! The corporate "Big Guys" love seeing you "Pump" their brand this way, and to them......it's innovative marketing!

This is just for one page of the newspaper.It will be better!)

___But Anderson's method is inferior to many modern techniques.As Slidiny method. This is a good trick but .....

What is Gene's new book, and where can you get it?

I do not think Anderson's method is inferior to modern techniques. I still prefer it.

As usual, I agree with Pop.

Gene Anderson's newspaper tear is the only one I use.....and it gets gasps from the audience.

I have both versions of the No Tear method (Tony Stevens' No Tear presented by Mark Mason and the Ultimate No Tear from Magic Makers) and like them both. I have no qualms about using either one. With the proper patter they work really well. However . . .

having just watched Pop perform Gene Anderson's version, I ordered it. And if I can eventually do it 1/2 as well, I will be tickled to death.

Mr. Haydn, sir, you are what performing magic is all about.

Thank you Rainboguy and Pop - this has been a great topic and appreciate soaking up everyone's ideas. I'm diving in to Anderson's version!

Thanks to the mention in this thread... I recently ordered Gene Anderson's new book and it is beyond excellent. Highly recommended!

I think the Steinmeyer Tear from Conjuring Anthology is often overlooked... I really like it for it's simplicity.

I think my favorite is Ron Wilson's handling in the Uncanny Scot book. Extremely clever and extremely clean!

I love Newsflash. I use the Tabloid version since it is very quick and easy to set up and you can easily find tabloid size newspapers for free.

Any body have "U.F. Grant's FoolZum Newspaper Tear"? I have been looking for that one for some time.


I had this and it is no good. The concept of tearing just one page while keeping the rest intact is a good idea. The Osterlind version uses that principle with a much better routine. I also worked out a version that uses the Foolzum concept that is cleaner. But, I still prefer the Gene Anderson one. It gets the best response.

Angelo Please tell us more about this version, its strengths and weaknesses. I would like to do this with my poster.
It seems that this method is not new - but it looks amazing. Is there an inventor's name - this version? Thank you!
I love the magic & history of magic! My favorites magicians - Dai Vernon, Max Malini, Fielding West, Michael Finney, Jeff Hobson, Bob Sheets, Nick Lewin, Harry Murphy, Dick Oslund- great showmen of magic!

Hopefully Angelo can give a review. But he did say he loves it. I just ordered it last night. So I won’t have it until the next of the week.
