Wow! So many excellent reviews already- it's a killer that's why. The CD is excellent- you'll learn it in no time- very dimple prep (make many and you're ready all night long)- can't believe how easy it is yet so magical!...

I actually use this as a climax to my ambitious card routine. It is a real worker. It requires a bit of practice (what doesn't). I also recommend buying a few decks of cards...torched and all that... The only reason I wouldn't recommend it highly is because I'd like to keep the secret for myself!...

I love to perform Heinstein's Dream, and I love Daniel Garcia's take on the plot and now I have another weapon for just 5 bucks. If you don't have a torn and restored card in your act already you cant go wrong with this. Its easy to do, preparation is simple, angles are very good, tearing sequence and clean up is well taught out. Really good handling and the burning sequence with flying ashes... wow it massively adds to the restoration (but works also without of course). I am so looking forward to try it out and just the video convinced me that this is a worker! You will see a lot of live performances as well. Thank you for this hot deal....

To put it in one word #PERFECT. I own so many torn and restored card magic over the years, Torched and Restored is the perfect working tool. Thx. Brent for your version. This is a must own, and I rarely give Five Stars....

When evaluating a new effect, I'm not looking to see if it's good or bad. But rather, I'm asking one simple question, "Can I use this or not?" Rest assured, "Torched and Restored" is a user, not a loser. It's something I can use for walk-around without worrying about restricted angles, and fire always adds an extra level of coolness. Two random notes--1) At most, you'll need to add about $3.00 to the purchase price to buy a certain something from any office supply store. (I say "at most" because a lot of magicians will already have this on hand.) And 2, to answer the question that I had when purchasing this--No, it does not require a TT. (Not that there is anything wrong with a TT, but I'd feel ripped off to have purchased this and be told simply, "Tear the card, and use the TT for a switch and ditch.")...

There are many torn and restored card effects on the market, but I'll compare this to two that had the most influence on me, The Reformation and The Reparation. Reformation by Guy Hollingworth (Drawing Room Deceptions) is the most difficult. It is very clean looking, but it is not something I'd be comfortable doing in public because of how difficult it is. It is the most "impossible" looking routine, but the benefits of this routine over the others are likely to go over a layman's head. A magician will appreciate this more. The Reparation by John Lovick makes the Guy Hollingsworth routine much easier, but lacks the convincing degree of Guy Hollingsworth's routine. Lovick's routine is superior to Hollingworth's because a better balance between between ease and effect is achieved. Hollingworth's routine is very difficult to master and while Lovick's can achieve the same with less trouble while not sacrificing too much in terms of effect. With that being said, I am not a big fan of torn and restored effects; I don't perform them and don't practice them regularly like I do other things. I'm sure I'm not alone in learning something for the sake of learning it; adding it to my repertoire of regularly performed is dependent on how much I like it after I learn it and it just didn't feel right. I'll look at it every once in a while, but not much more. Torched and Restored by Brent Braun made me reconsider how I treat torn and restored effects. I've learned it and found it to be easier than Lovick's routine without sacrificing the effect. Braun's routine requires some setup, which I am not a fan of because I like working with a clean deck, but it removes the problems associated with the previous two routines. I can't really say exactly what the issues are without revealing the methods, but if you're familiar with the standard method, you'll notice something very special about Braun's routine. This results in a routine that is easier than Lovick's and looks as good as Hollingworth's. I don't recommend it. I'm selfish and don't want other magicians doing this because I want it for myself! It's such a good routine that I'm adding it to my repertoire. It's clean, visual, and easy to do. Being easy is not (and should not) be a deciding factor in what one chooses to do for a performance, but what best achieves the desired result. The best happens to also be the easiest....
