A card is peeked at by a spectator and then lost. You challenge them to find that same card by choosing it from a face-down spread. Unfortunately they are unable to - instead finding a card of the same value. Taking the card from the spectator you begin to tear the card - letting the spectator separate the final piece.
Now it's time for a reputation-making restoration of that same corner.
With a touch of the fingers, the pieces visually restore. Before they've had time to react the restored card is turned around to show its face - it has CHANGED into their original card.
Torn. Restored. Changed. VIBRATION.
This is finally what I have been looking for in a corner restoration effect. No gimmicks. No extra cards. No duplicates. Just good old card technique and very little sleight of hand. This is easily within the reach of anyone from beginner (you will need to practice...sorry) to advanced card people. Justin Miller has a real winner in my book. This looks magic (very important), and is easy to perform allowing you to concentrate on your performance and not on the sleights. The angles are very good also. This hits all the marks for me. If you like T&R effects or have been looking for a good Torn Corner Restoration effect I think you will like this one.
Well done JM, this effect receives exceedingly good reactions and is extremely simple to perform, if acting is executed well it receives the best reaction, thanks Justin :D
Very interesting trick. If you like torn and restored this is as good as it gets.
