THE DEEP DIVE - WHAT EXACTLY IS REVIVE?
THE WORLD'S FIRST ULTRA VISUAL, SUPER PRACTICAL, NO PALMING, NO EXTRA PIECES, EASY 360 DEGREE TORN AND RESTORED... AND IT'S SIGNED!
1. Can their selection be SIGNED?
Yes. Both halves of the card can be signed.
2. Do I have to palm or clip anything in any way?
Absolutely not. No extra pieces, corners or flaps are palmed.
3. Am I left clean at the end?
100% - You can see in the trailer the card is snatched straight out of Duane’s hands after the restore and it’s fully examinable.
4. Are the staples left in?
After months of routining, the #1 piece of feedback we weren’t expecting was “It’s definitely my card, the staples are still in there.” It’s funny how they weren’t reacting to the signature, but more-so the fact that the staples were still stuck in. That shocked us that is actually ADDS a convincer to the fact it’s restored fully.
5. What if someone is standing behind me?
No worries. Revive might be one of a handful of routines in existence that can be done surrounded. A full 360 degrees of visual goodness. Theoretically speaking you could restore half of the card and flip it if you need to. However Duane likes to restore and THEN flip it to show the signatures for that extra POW in his reactions.
6. Could I give it to them half restored?
You could, but then they might bring it back to you later on in the evening/week/year and ask you to restore the rest of it to wow their friends too. You won’t be able to do this. So we recommend you go big or go home and restore the full card.
7. Will I be burned at the stake for possessing such power?
This has never happened to us, but if you find yourself falling asleep and waking up in 1692, then we suggest you just do something that’s easier to disprove as real magic. Like an Omni deck.
8. My girlfriend left me, will this trick get her back?
We aren’t sure whether the mending of this card will provide a strong enough metaphor to mend your broken relationship, but if she’s the one for you, then it’s worth a shot to learn it for just $20.
9. Can this be performed with ANY deck or ANY cards?
Yes. In Revive, Duane walks you through the simple steps to produce the gimmick. You aren’t just limited to red-backed bikes like in most gimmicked effects.
10. I have limited knowledge and skill with sleight of hand, can I do this effect?
This is made for you. There are only two sleights in the entire routine and they are VERY basic. This is perfect for beginners and pros alike.
FULL PERFORMANCE - REVIVE IN ACTION
This is a good effect, but does require some set-up. I will definitely be using this!
When you perform this, people will no longer see you as a magician, they will literally see you as a real wizard.
Fantastic tutorial, very detailed and thorough. Requires a bit of prep and takes a bit of time, but that can be brought down to a bare minimum with practice. The effect looks unreal!
If you've read the other reviews then you know that there seems to be a few people who are upset about the set-up time and effort. Let me tell you, the time and effort are totally worth it. I'm no professional when it comes to magic. I'm more of a hobbyist but the few folks I've showed this effect to have had incredible reactions, so for me, the set-up and effort have both been worth it. I dinged it one star because the set-up does involve (without spoilers) something that many people might have trouble doing. A template, like the one Duane uses in the tutorial would also have been nice. Not necessary, but it definitely would help. Still, the positives of this effect far outweigh the negatives and it has become my go-to T&R, when I have the free time to whip up a couple.
Hands Down the best TnR Card trick that will ever be produced and it?s in slow motion
Brilliant!! With tears in my eyes, now knowning the method, seeing these girls in the trailer react as if at a 1964 Beatles Concert at Washington Coliseum... I smile from ear to ear! Easy to perform. Yes, you build the gimmicks... I know, a pain in the ass but well worth it for this. You do this trick in a social setting and watch their heads explode!! STOP READING, GO GET IT!!
This is, hands down, the most convincing TnR effect ever. The fact that you can restore the tear **in slow motion** without removing the staples makes up for the construction of the gimmick. Remember, magic isn?t about the magician! Those complaining about the gimmick are missing the point: spectators are genuinely scared! Their fear and bewilderment makes this effect a perfect 10. I perform it on special occasions or whenever I want something that?s awe inspiring and easy to perform.
Despite being one of the best TnR effects I've purchased, the set-up on this is ridiculous and not worth the trouble to do at all. However, if only the manufacturer would sell the "Revive Dust" then it might be worth it. But it's always "out of stock" so don't waste your money on this at all.
This is the BEST TnR magic I have ever seen so far. The cleanest TnR ever! There are so many TnR out in the market but has to palm it or not 360 angle proof. This effect can be done with your palm opens up. All great magic takes a bit of setup time, so it is worth a little time making it. I get great reaction by just doing this. Awesome!
I do not like giving bad reviews. Thie method is nice but way to much set up. In my honest opinion Face off is so much better. A bit of set up for that as well, but better reactions. This trick for me is a dust collector. May be your cup of tea who knows. I purchased 3 downloads from Ellusionist. Revive, Face off, Blind man's bill change. Face off and the bill change are very useable. This one ugh. Sorry guys.
