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.

    I couldn’t decide if I wanted Face Off or Siamese Waltz very Similar Tricks but after buying this I’m so glad I chose the Correct one, I only do this for special audiences... It’s a killer!

    Brilliant, love it. I use the second method to make the gimmick and it works perfectly. I've done this trick quite a few times now and the reactions alone are worth the money. I've had everything from jaw-dropping disbelief to being told to just 'F*** off!'
    Amazing. Buy it.
    No, don't.
    The fewer people that know about this the better.
    Ellusionist, can you please take this trick off your site?

    Best tnr trick of this century. I must admit I had some difficulty in learning how to make this gimmick at first, but through persistance & not giving up on myself, I finally triumped & was exceptionally happy & pleased. I not only can do this trick, I learnt how to make other tricks as well! Thanks to Ron & Ellusionist staff for this amazing magical download!!!

    This is a fantastic effect. Brilliant thinking behind this one. I agree with a few of the reviewers, Using Ron's method to create the gimmick may give trouble for some. Me included. I use a different method taught by Hondo and it's so easy. I know how this effect works and I still fool myself. I have probably tried every Torn and restored since Hollingworth and this one takes the prize. Oh, did I mention you can do this surrounded? Well you can. I highly recommended Face off.
  6. Summary

    Love this! The Holy Grail of TNR imho. I have had a few people point out a flaw in the cards when I gave them out at the end. With a bit more work, I was able to remedy that. Now it's a silencing miracle!
  7. Summary

    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!!
  8. Summary

    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.
  9. Summary

    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
  10. Summary

    This is one of the best tricks in my walk around routine right now. Easy to perform, powerful, a souvenir for the audiance! The method for creating the gimmick took a bit of practice, but believe me... it's worth every penny. At $20 this is a steal!
