I have been using marked decks for years now in my regular performing.
Usually, I mark my own
Bicycle Rider backs, and I was excited to see a cheap alternative. This deck is great in so many
ways, however, I would have done away with the mark at the top and bottom of the deck. I think it
is a bit of an overkill to mark this deck in 6 different spots, and thus essentially making it
impossible to hand out for any sort of examination by a spectator...I just wouldn't feel comfortable
letting a spectator look at the back for longer than a few seconds.
If the mark at the top
and bottom was gone, I think the deck would be much better at passing by a spectator. Just my two
However, kudos for providing a beyond reasonably priced marked deck.
I absolutely agree completely. I’d give them 4stars though. Great price!
It’s actually got 10 marks when you think about it. 10 spots for a spectator to notice.
But It’s hard to know how much they stand out because we know they are there and that’s all we see.
But the spectator (If he wasnt a fellow magician) wouldn’t know what to look for
Dude rule of magic: people are not going to find something they are not looking for.
For someone who has performed for so many years maybe you have forget the basics, no worry about the marks.
I have never ever seen someone spend more than 1 second looking the back of a card, Why on earth would they do? (Unless of course you want to OVER prove there's nothing strange and explicitily tell them to insepect the front and the back but that is just not intelligent tho)
Jaunty is absolutely correct here...No one will see anything.
Don't over-think this, just believe in the magic and these cards will do the rest.
They are some of the best and most reasonably priced (actually "cheap") marked cards I've seen. They look good and feel good. And not for nothing, I even put in a duplicate, regular bike with them and no one notices a thing. So yeah, just go with it and you'll see, no one will see a thing. Great job Penguin!
Here’s the thing, if you use a marked deck correctly, if you hand out cards for inspection, no one will even think to look for markings and thus won’t find them. Unless you tell them there are markings, they’ll never be found
Out of all the years I’ve been doing magic, I’ve never owned a marked deck. Until now . I in no way think that anyone will notice the marks. It’s all presentation based. Rule of thumb in magic. “ don’t run if you’re not being chased “
