Don't Be Fooled By The Cheapness
on January 9, 2011
As anyone who is interested in magic knows, marked cards usually start at like $15 MINIMUM so your first instinct might be "Whoa, $7? Probably some crap." This is definitely not crap. First of all, the markings are very well hidden. Unfortunately, I already knew where and what the markings were before I actually got the deck so I never got to look at the deck with an unbiased eye to see how easy they are to spot, but so far nobody has noticed even though a lot of my tricks involve the spectator staring directly at the back of a card. Also, the markings are very easy to read and you can do it quickly. I'm an amateur when it comes to reading marked decks but I can easily read them when dealing a deck at a moderately fast pace. Next is the quality. These cards being made by Bicycle, they are of very high quality. They are just as good as the rider backs with their air-cushion finish and premium USPC card stock. Lastly, the design is really cool, definitely more fun to look at than the standard rider back design. Overall this is a high quality marked deck that surely serve you well in your magic endeavors and don't believe that because the deck is marketed towards a younger audience that it's not as legit as a more expensive one, this is simple not true.
