There are many torn and restored card effects on the market. Most are difficult, multi-phased, and angle-sensitive. Pros and cons for each one.
The advantage of RIP is that the ENTIRE effect happens in ten seconds. You casually tear a card to pieces, then shake the pieces. They VISIBLY restore, front and back.
What you receive with RIP is a GORGEOUS handmade gaff that has two positions: in the open position it looks exactly like a messy pile of pieces, front and back. When it flips (and locks) closed, it is a normal card, front and back. There are no threads or parts to break: it's practical and completely reliable.
RIP was a sellout at the Blackpool Convention, and we witnessed dozens of people walking around "flipping" the gimmicked card closed to create the illusion of an instant restore. This gimmick is fun. It works itself, is easy to do, and has no bad angles. If you're looking to add a quick, visual Torn and Restored moment into your card set, RIP is just for you.
RIP is the most visual torn and restored card in all of magic! It is surprisingly easy. A worthwhile and inexpensive purchase!
From the June 2016 MAGIC Magazine. Reviewed by Peter Pitchfordt seems like we have advanced past the trend of angle sensitive, move heavy, one-piece-at-a-time Torn & Restored Card routines. Rip is much different. It is quick: two tears and an instant restoration of a card. The effect is straightforward, and the method is very cool. Most magicians who enjoy a clever gaff will like playing with this. Christopher Wiehl also adds a nice audio illusion during the pseudo tearing.If you are looking for a Torn & Restored Card that is quick, easy, requires little practice, has good angles, and you don’t mind a handling that doesn’t quite look natural, then Rip fits the bill.
