by Ran Pink
Create the illusion of REAL mindreading in the most direct,
personal, casual and powerful way, and be able to do it
anytime with nothing more than a pen and piece of paper.
It’s classic and simple, yet so strong that it can bring
people to tears.
In 2010 Ran began experimenting with an approach that could
get him to the information faster than any move that has
ever existed before. He wanted to rip the paper, making it
seem un-needed and dispose of it like it was irrelevant. Yet
he still wanted to access the information instantly without
having to steal pieces or turning around for the peek.
He wanted to move away from the origami-like, methodical
tearing, and focus on a bolder move, one which would allow
him to gain information after the first tear if he so
pleased. Yet, it had to appear natural with no apparent
unfolding motions. This is how T-REX came to be.
Never look at your hands as you rip the paper
No fumbling with too many pieces
Easy to navigate by touch alone
This was a breakthrough for Ran Pink that shifted the way he
performed the Center Tear.
Learn Ran Pink’s T-REX ripping technique and then explore
alternative handlings, additional subtleties, presentational
ideas and the logic of the whole process.
“How do you justify tearing up the paper?”
“Why write it down?”
These questions are addressed inside the book as well as
presentation ideas from some of the greatest minds in magic
and mentalism .
T-REX includes a Foreword by Richard Osterlind (the man that
started the instant access Center Tear revolution) which
contains a brief history of the instant access center tear.
As a extra bonus you’ll also learn “LSD T-REX”: A
revolutionary TWO-CARD Center Tear.

“I really do like T-REX and have used it regularly over the
last year. It is indeed excellent and extremely utilitarian.
It is one of the smoothest and most efficient tears I’ve
“It’s the single best Center Tear I’ve seen in 20 years. For
“T-REX is quite simply perfect. I’m now convinced a center
tear can be fast and invisible whilst allowing you to see
roughly 75% of the billet after just one tear. Please read
that sentence again. This is the way we’ll all be doing
center tears as of 2013. Fact!”
“Finding the way to the center has yielded many solutions,
but only a few feel as natural and as smooth as Ran Pink’s
“I saw Ran perform T-REX and I was amazed. Then he taught me
the moves and I was even more astounded! So easy, practical,
and very smart. This is by far the best Center Tear I have
ever seen. I’m definitely going to use it!”
