I drop my cards a lot, corners get bent in my pocket, etc., and I fold cards a lot and discard decks with less than about 40 cards, so I go through about 5 or 6 a month. I'm all thumbs, which doesn't help the lifespan, either. (constant squaring)

I flourish almost constantly. When i'm not practicing tricks, have a free hand or three and spare time i'm always practicing different one handed cuts or other flourishes. I get through from 3-10 decks a month depending on how much and what I do, luckily I have a lot of bricks of decks lying around :) .

Do you guys keep your totally warped and worn out decks?
I do they can be quite useful for some things...

Once a deck gets worn out (looses that new/stiff feel) I put it aside and use it when I do tricks that involve signing card. IE: ACR, 90% of Sankey stuff.

I save my old decks and make new ones out of them. I go through about... probbably close to 20 a month. Yeah, a lot.

But I have about a box of 3000 cards that I use for signing or dupes or whatever.

I'll go through 2-3 decks a month in the summer ( a LOT more free time to practice plus the humtidy makes them warp quicker) during the school year I'll go through 1 deck a month (no time to practice :()

This started a while back. I go through a new deck every 2 days. sometimes more because I like the Brand New smell of cards.

When I am performing in a place like School or somewhere where you don't want to bring Nuggets or Guardians or a new deck of any kind...

I go thru my big box of cards and make a full deck.

man. a lot of you people must not like broken in decks or use dollar store cards.

I go through 3 decks a month. But i use a deck for atleast 3 hours a day of practicing. and Id say I spring the same deck atleast 150 times daily. They only start to feel good after 2 days.

i use aladdins, arrcos, and wynns if your wondering
