A good set of cards, although my deck felt a little 'cardboardy'. This compares slightly
unfavourably to the Bee Deck I bought about ten years ago, which is still going strong.
These are the nicest American paper playing cards. They look
nice, they handle well, and they
are very durable.. I would highly recommend them.
Bee deck is the best quality in the USPC products.
These decks are truly THE perfect deck. With a smooth finish that is similar but not the SAME as
bicycles, you can be sure these cards are quality!
In addition, these decks of cards are
MADE to last. I owned my last deck for over 6 months after constant abuse, dropping them and
performing, which makes around 3 bucks a deck a STEAL.
This is a classic in card magic, very good quality and you can do lots of other effects with a
bicycle deck, because lots of gaff cards are bicycle deck, I always have a bycycle deck in my close
up and stag magic box.
Add to cart.
Faro shuffles, double lifts, top changes, passes, three card monte and second dealing. Bee deck blue
is the way to go. There is no better deck to conceal these difficult and useful techniques. This is
due to the special back design and the absence of the white border (which unfortoately is a large
drawback if you need to reverse cards. You can't get away with it! Just buy a bicycle deck as well,
The reason why I mentioned double lift is because of the sweet snap sound
of the bee deck. Really special :) also, it faro shuffles smooooothly! Buy two of these decks and
you can make lots of monte sets:)
hot tip at the end: penguinmagic offers bicycle deck
professional. It has the bee finish with a great snap, two identical jokers and an extra blank card.
I, personally, don't like the white borders in the cards back design, for my card routines. These
cards are of great quality, look and feel great, and, well, do everything regular poker size cards
These cards are of the same great high quality that you would expect from the US Playing Card
Company. Like all card (that is, non-plastic) based decks, they tend to clump over time (or if you
live in humid climates).
A word of warning - the back design that goes right to the edge
makes them fairly unsuitable for tricks that involve reversing cards. They can be spotted too easily
from the side of the deck.
This a great alternative to the standard bycicle deck, great for double-lifts, second deals, monte
type effects, and most gambling demonstrations. These are high quality cards, last a long time, and
you'll love em. The only con is that when you reverse cards in the deck, it's kind of obvious.
