I have mixed feelings about this effect. I have no problem with the tearing section, I think that looks ok. And the restorations do look really nice, especially the first one.

For close up workers not being able to hand out the card is an issue. Yes, Reuben does cover handing out the card but for this you'll be using 4 cards & it will require a force. Also, the card cannot be signed although I don't think to the layman that this is important. The problem I see with the hand out version is simply pocket management. You're going to have a pocket full of different pieces which could cause difficulties if you're not careful.

If you're performing Fourfit in a parlour setting like Reuben does then this is a good effect. But for walkaround I'll be sticking with Garcia's Torn. This is nothing on Fourfit suggesting how you would get into it in a strolling situation either so you'll need to work that out yourself.

Not ending clean (hand out version) shouldn't cause a problem. Many tricks don't end clean, so an experienced performer should be able to ditch the dirt easily enough.

Reuben covers some different handlings & for a debut release this isn't too bad.

On a final note, someone asked above if it could be done with money. With some thought I don't see why not & actually think this could be a really good idea. Borrowing a bill also would eliminate the card force & some of the worries of practicality in a walkaround situation. But you will have to kiss goodbye to a few bucks.

Hey guys. By a strange coincidence, FourFit is reviewed in the March issues of both Genii and Magic Magazine! Make sure you check them out!

I realize I may be a bit late to the game on this one, but I just ordered FourFit today Aug 8th, 2014 and I cannot wait to get the dvd in my hands and begin learning this as it looks awesome. I have TnR by Mathieu Bich and never really liked the 'prep time' to make the restoration work, and while I admire Dave Forrest for his stuff STAR left me a bit disillusioned with the ending bit of clean up. I am looking forward to FourFit because of the idea of being able to show the sections front and back at each point in the restoration and if I read correctly there is a face up version as well, which would be really different.

Just got FourFit yesterday in the mail. I love the look of the restorations and Reuben's teaching style is great...looking forward to learning this and putting in the effort to make it look as smooth as he does. Great job!

I agree with The One, the angles limit its use but looks great if you can get it smooth enough. I've had it a few weeks now and its coming along nicely.
