I think no matter the quality, over $300 + shipping for 72 packs of cards is too much. Especially when Sam's Club/Costco has Bicycles for $1 a pack.

Agreed. Plus I don't see the appeal to the whole military theme. Your audience doesn't care what kind of cards you use.

I can understand if you collect, but the whole custom deck thing is getting out of hand. I'll stick with bikes.

Guys, I collect. And $300 isn't an issue at all.

Hey now, I understand collecting. I collect a bit myself.

My problem with them isn't so much the money issue, as much as its the 'lame' issue. I just don't understand why E junior needs to come out with a new deck every other month.

"E junior" .... hehehe, that's funny!

Basically it's to ensure that enough people buy these special decks and start using them, so regular 808's will then become the 'suspicious- looking, obviously gaffed deck' that spectators never see in use!! :lol: :lol:

I hate internet things like that. I had to think about it to realize it meant fixed it for you...

Anyway, the Props look good. Even though I am anti-millitary, I want some. I think the stingers are going to be no better feeling than Bee's, and as previously stated, the lack of border makes a Bee a Bee.

For the most part. I feel that we should only be involved, millitary-wise, when it is ABSOLUTLY nessisary. I think almost all (except a few) of the wars the US was in were completely pointless and caused a lot to die for no reason or cause...

But lets not get into this. :wink:

Oh, no problem... I wasn't trying to get that conversation started, it's just an odd thing to say is all. :) Took me by surprise

Popchris, you are wrong. The Stingers don't feel like a bee deck, they have an Aristocrat stock. Big difference.

The cards feel great, look like [edited]. If you like the look, buy them.

It's kind of sad that they have almost as many decks of cards as they do tricks.
