I was very excited when i bought these cards, however i was disappointed upon opening the box. The cards are made out of a slightly thicker stock which normally would be great, but the entire deck was not cut properly. The cards had very rough edges and some had extra paper along what should be a perfectly smooth deck edge. This is not hugely noticeable, but as a magician for 9 years, it is proving to make lifts and other handlings more difficult.

i was also a bit disappointed at the resolution of the images on the back. i really expected a crystal clear guardian backing to these cards, but it is a disappointing quality since the artwork from which it came was much better quality.

not bad cards, but i had higher expectations.

cards arrived extremely quickly which i was very pleased about.

Very, very satisfied with this product. I'm a first time buyer from amazon and I was happy with this product. Awesome cards, very slick and smooth. amazing fan and spreads, nice shuffling, easy deal, perfect for magic tricks! I recommend these cards for anyone looking for a deck of cards that they want to pull out to impress a few friends with. I DO NOT recommend these cards for someone looking for a deck of cards that has every face card redesigned around guardian. but however the color scheme has changed. The reds are darker, very nice touch. The ace is amazing, and I am personally a lover of the joker cards in any deck. The Jockers are centered around the min design. Please keep in mind that these cards are very nice and deserve to be taken care of! any set of cards can last 6 months with continuous use. if you want to practice shuffling with these cards, but two decks. Constant riffle shuffling and bridging will cause any deck to bend out of shape in weeks ( I'm well aware that a lot of people know this, I'm letting the rookies know)

These cards look cool, it's true. But for card tricks and flourishes they really miss the mark. The cards are a bit thicker than ordinary Rider Backs. The edges are rough (making it difficult to do a standard waterfall shuffle, for example). If you buy these cards, I suggest buying one deck just to see how you like them before you invest your money in a bunch of these. From my perspective, Tally Ho's are the best cards for tricks and flourishes, and you can buy them for a lot less than what you'll pay for Guardians.

I really dig this deck, it's a perfect compromise between the classic look of bicycle cards, and the edgy dark look that modern magicians prefer. The artwork is great on the backs, as well as the ace of spade and joker cards. The royals are pretty much the same as a normal deck, but they've dropped the yellow color, which despite being a small change, gives the cards a dark feel that echoes the rest of the deck.

The handling is wonderful right out the box, fans and spreads are effortless with this deck, the only thing holding it back in this category is the rough cut edges, though I suspect that they might smooth out with use.

This deck will definitely find it's way into my performances, and keeping in mind that this is a performance deck, not a practice deck, I should say it will last for some time.

These cards are absolutely perfect! The cards are slightly thicker than normal ones which is a good thing. The edges are cut silky smooth. The picture on the back of the cards is really sharp and crisp. These cards are perfect for doing card tricks or just playing a game. They also arrived right on time.

These cards are greatly quality and much better than I expected. Most of the users seem to be for magic but I use these for poker games and I am very impressed with how well they stand up to drunks, food and beer spills.

I have to admit I am really disappointed in these cards.

Even though they are black, the black is rather dull and the image quality on the face cards are very cheap. Based on what I saw online I had much higher expectations. The Ace of Spades and the back of the cards have good, unique artwork but due to the cheap printing process even that is ruined. And like I said, the face cards would look better if I printed them off of my own printer. They are really cheap looking. Such a shame as they has such a good concept.

They cards are also thinner and physically smaller than I expected and on poor stock. They shuffle ok but I can tell they won't have a long life expectancy. I do not recommend these cards for anything other than casual card games, good cards to give to your pre-teens to practise with maybe.

Also I was really hoping since the Ace of Spades was so nice other cards would have unique artwork as well but no, the other are entirely generic.

I am angry at myself as I am almost always disappointed in Bicycle cards but I was hoping they had changed.
