 Post subject: stripper deck - where can I get the best?

Can anyone tell me where to get a really professional quality deck? All the ones I use are pretty good, but when I'm trying to separate the reds and blacks to perform 'out of this world' I frequently leave behind the odd red or black, which takes the edge of the trick a little.
Any recommendations (or maybe a better technique for using my cheap deck?)
Thanks

I think Bicycle brand is the best deck available. Those cheap decks don't seem to work as well.

Thankyou FP, appreciate the reply. I do have a bicycle card deck though and I practised again earlier on, with the same results - sometimes it works cleanly, sometimes it doesn't. It always seems hit and miss.

If you do leave a few behind, say something to the effect 'Well, no one's perfect.' or 'Hey, I got most of them.' Seperating a majority of the reds from the blacks, and only leaving a few behind is pretty darn impressive to a layperson. And also, before you do the trick, don't tell them what the ultimate outcome is supposed to be, just let the final result, wether 100% or very close to it, speak for itself.

One way to remedy that is to make more than 1 "strip" if you have too. Just do it quickly. Nobody's gonna pay that much attention until they actually see the separation of the colors anyway.
