Prep takes less than 3 minutes (with practice) of course. (I have completely set up in about a minute and a half in the past)

Reset depends, In some cases, it's literally instant, in others, it may take a little longer. There are several variations to the routine included, so it all depends on which one you choose.

Some variations of phases are angle sensitive, but I include angle-proof versions of each phase to accomplish the routine in more limiting conditions. you may need to have some practice in crowd management though.

Sorry this took a while to respond.

Can it also be done with money (bills)? I know I have to tear bills, but will it be possible to do the exact same restoration as with a playing card?

C'mon...really! This is a Torn and Restored Card routine. I'm quite confident that if it was a Torn and Restored Anything it certainly would have most certainly been mentioned in the ad/promo/demo, and most obviously a real bonus for those that are tired of all the TnRC tricks. Smile

I've had this a while and tried to learn it but I just got so frustrated with some of the moves. Perhaps I'll try again with some of the other handlings.

It looks very similar to phuzed by Dave Loosely which I also have but it's not as easy as that. But does look better.

Ah bless me --what I always love about most T & R effects is that the magician can restore the card but can't get rid of those incredibly nasty creases he's made !!

Sounds to me that this DVD is pretty comprehensive explanation of T & R and if it was someones first time at a T & R it would be a good buy. If you've already got one of the several billion T & R's on the market I wonder if there is that much new here to get excited about.

How does this compare with "Star", by Dave Forrest?

Star is 1,000,000 times better. It's WAY cleaner, more organic, less angle restricted, easier, and the chances of you getting caught in star is 99.9 % less than fourfit. I honestly don't see how fourfit has such great reviews......

Because Fourfit looks AMAZING. It isn't too difficult but the angles are a problem. I am actually surprised Craig and Dave gave it a good review because they are always about practicality which I don't think this is; it is more of as they say a "youtube" piece. I love Star and feel it added something fresh to tnr's but I hate the last restoration which is the only reason I haven't performed it. Dave mentioned on here that he does a different ending that is more fluid but hasn't updated us...I think he should.

I believe FOURFIT is much better than STAR. The handling is more simple and more fluid as you are effectively
dealing with less pieces during the restoration. There maybe a few angle issues but that also applies to STAR
and most other T&R effects.
I was impressed with the DVD on FOURFIT which has been filmed via a mirror in parts, which shows you what the
performance looks like from the performers view point and also from the spectators viewpoint - a nice idea! The first restoration on FOURFIT is nice, very nice indeed... I agree with Blueroyalty regarding the last restoration on STAR - it sucks! If just that for reason alone FOURFIT comes out on top.

Don't hold your breath... It took him 5 months to ship the original DVD for STAR! Customer service is not a strong point.

I think if you have done other Torn And Restored cards before you'll be fine and used to working your audience for angles ( also many other methods on this dvd that are variations on restored pieces that have way less angles but not quite as magical) . I watched it and really liked the method although I would not recommend to beginners.
A fantastic piece of magic from Mr Moreland as his opener to teaching us guys something special !! Thanks Reuben can't wait for more.

Both reuben and dave are great thinkers, and I think if you like tnr plots there is no reason why you shouldnt check out both effects. Im sure there is something useful to learn from both! What ithink you would take away from fourfit most are the variations taught for each phase, and the variety in restorations from the first to the last.

I haven't looked into "Fourfit" but recently learned "Star" and have performed it several times. I'm really happy with it. I don't understand why some people don't like the final restoration. Can anyone elaborate what he/she doesn't like about it? I guess some people want to simply place the final piece in place and have the total card "mend" without folding it at all?

My main problem with Fourfit is that 3 cards are ruined to achieve the effect, and NOT A SINGLE ONE is fully restored at the end. If this downside at least gave a more convincing Tearing of the card I might let it slide, but the tearing is possibly more suspicious that in classic handlings like Guy Hollingworth's.

Having said that, I enjoyed the restoration methodology and how visual it was. But the angles leave it far from being a worker.
