Although this maybe "advice" I thought that silks are more used in Kids Show magic. I've never really thought about buying silks. I've got about 15, and they don't suffer like my packet of cards do, but it has come to my attention that I need more silks, but there appears to be about 3 different brand silks at penguin magic alone. The silks I have are from Duane Laflins magic store, but that is not currently operational.
So, from penguin magic [it wouldn't be appropriate to list other retailers...], which silks should I buy? has anyone bought the cheap ones? compared them to the more expensive ones? Are they all the same? WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE SILK WORLD!!!!!
