First things first; The stock is not bicycle, the finish is clumpy, and you don't even get the
slightest hint of a gaff card. I guess you could say that this Architect needs to go back to the
drawing board *Insert Laugh Track Here*
You are right about the stock.. it is actually better than bicycle. I disagree with you about the finish. If you got a bad deck, I apologize but I have yet to experience anything like what you describe.
There is not a gaff card no. I like gaff cards too but you can create your own gaff cards with the deck if you so desired. This is not a gaff deck.
