Face Off by Ron Salamangkero

Downloadable Video


If you think you’ve seen every possible version of torn and restored, think again.

We travelled over 6,700 miles to Manila in the Philippines to bring you the only torn card paradox we could never solve.

Around 2 years ago a video was submitted to us of a man taking 2 signed cards, tearing both and instantly restoring them as mismatched souvenirs that the spectator can examine and even keep.

That mysterious man was Ron Salamangkero... and his method was like nothing we could ever conceive in magic.

The best part is the moment the cards are torn… they are already restored, making this one of the easiest TnR's to perform. No palming of pieces.

- Zero Bad Angles
- Completely Examinable
- Nothing To Switch Or Ditch.

The torn pieces are placed in the spectators hands, only to emerge completely restored. All that remains is a frayed crease proving that the cards were once torn.

Gimmicks take minutes, but trust us, the memory this trick creates lasts a lifetime.

This is Face Off from Ron Salamangkero.

    Hands down the best effect I have purchased this year! Takes a bit of trial and error to make the gaff, but once you get past that part, close up card magic just doesn't get any better than this! Ellusionist has hits a home run with this download. Lloyd's simplified version cuts the preparation time down to half! Be sure and don't skip over this part!!

    This gimmick is very very clever and it’s easy to do, Ron teaches you a lot of tricks with this one gimmick, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ So good, and you can do with what you have in your house, you don’t have to buy fancy stuff like ****** ******,i can’t wait to perform this, so good,clean and the best part is: the gimmick (WHEN YOU FINISH THE TRICK) it’s one of the best ending possible, because you don’t have nothing to hide and the spectators can ripped the card if they wanna to,and they will have no idea how it’s done, this trick is real magic.

    This is my first purchased on Ellusionist and I can say OMG this is amazing. What a brilliant idea from this man. This is way cheaper than the siameze waltz from penguin magic. Gimmick is a bit hard to make at first but if you get the technique then you can make a lot of gimmick with one deck. Though Ron teaches how to make the gimmick. Amazing.. This is worth the money. Highly recommend this product.
    Just a tip: Much easier to make the gimmick with a brand new card/deck
