The Invisible Deck has the most impact on the spectators, but the Stripper Deck is way more versatile and allows you to do different things.

I don't see mental photo deck as an option so my vote goes for stripper deck.

A regular deck of cards :wink: ... Ok, but seriously I think the Invisible Deck is killer, it just flaws people.

From the choices listed the Invisable and Brainwave would tie for last. Only because you can do ONE thing with each.

The Svengal and Sripper are both capable of hundreds of tricks so they tie for first.

I would defenetly have to say stripper deck because it is the only one that is totally examinable and there are mmultiple totally different tricks to do with the stripper deck. It also looks like a regular deck and u can do regular deck tricks with it so spectators will be even less suspicious about the deck.

Umm... I have a question..

It might sound rather stupid you guys, but I just want to know..

The question is I think "Invisible Deck" and "Brainwave Deck" both have

the similar effect and "Brainwave Deck" has the second climax (Color Changing).

Then wouldn't "Brainwave Deck" be better than "Invisible Deck"???

I have all of these decks.

About the brainwave vs. invisible deck:

I think brainwave has more applications (i have worked it into my routines, PM me for ideas about incorporation), but if used stand alone, is a little too unreal...

Invisible Deck, however, is more believeable. It makes you seem like a slight of hand expert, while the brainwave deck is so unreal that the only things to think after seeing the trick are "OMG he is phsycic!" or "That deck is SO rigged!"


And not many people believe that clairavoyincy(SP?) is real.



Svengali is a great deck, except for the fact that half the world already had one as a kid, and knows how they work.

Stripper is great, but after practice, almost everything you can do with a stripper can be done via sleights. I am ticked at myself now that i bought a stripper, because i am learning new sleights that acomplish the same as the stripper deck.

Plus the stripper's concept is almost well known.



So of these choices, i would go with ID or Stripper...Or brainwave... lol depends on what you want to use them for.



Other wise, just get a plain deck of bikes, and go learn some basic sleights.

I agree w/ pyrodude about the whole brainwave being not as believable.

Thank U, Pyrodude and all the others who replied for me.. ^^

I already know pretty much about the tricks with plain deck,

but i never got any chance to do any tricks with these kinds of gimmicked decks.

So I just wanted to know which deck would be good for me to buy..

Again, Thank U guy.. ^^*

Svengali and invisible have the better effects but the spectator can REALLY inspect a stripper deck 8)

Whats with the wink? A reguler deck of cards is cheap, ungimmicked, examinable, and along with books, or videos, is the best investment around. I find gimmicks are sometimes, hard to work with and, most of the time, NOT examinable.
