I was reading on ellusionist about Tally Ho playing cards. Many people agreed that they were the beast of the best for magic but the only placed that they talked about where you could buy them was Dante King's. Will PM be carrying these cards anytime soon?

Well, I had never even heard of them for one, and I had always loved my Bicycle cards and I feel weird using anything else. I was reading one of the posts in the ellusionist boards and many people there were saying Tally Hos are the only way to go with magic. I don't know what it is about them since I've never used them but these guys were raving about them. It must be the coating or quality of the cardboard or something. If anyone has used them please post.

I just hearnd that for fanning, sleights and anything directly involving the cards and your hands that they are the best. The fact that Bicycles are common makes a lot of sense. I f anyone were to see you perform with them wthey would probably be suspicious, I hadn't thought of that.

Tally Ho Cards make a good alternative to Bicycle, however there is nothing that would make them superior. In addition, one of the most important advantages to Bicycle cards is that they are so common. Also, the wide range of gimmicked Bicycle backed cards and decks makes it the obvious choice for switching packs. For card manipulations, Jeff McBride likes to use red Bee brand cards since they don't have a border thus making them easier to backpalm without seeing the common white corners through the fingers. Hope that helps.


:lol: COOL. I always use Bicycle Brand. However what you said will help me in a trick I am making. I needed a set of cards with no border. I was not aware that Bee brand had no border. Thanks. BrockRM
