Design: very simple backs, so can be used for magic as well as for a casual game. Very simple ace and jokers and standard bicycle faces. Box looks kind of like a cigarette box.
Finish: Plastic coated. It has a smooth finish like the Alladins, so its a nice change. There are no little pores on the surface, so dust doesn't clog up in there. Keeps them white for a longer time. The finish does wear off after sometime, but its almost as lasting as a standard air cushion.
Stock: Very stiff. Almost 3 or 4 cards thicker than a bike deck, and twice as stiff. It will take a little breaking in before it starts springing.
One way faro, but can be worked in for both ways.
Good slick fans.
The cards have an odd stickiness to them. They don't clump up or stick while fanning, but create a sort of 'vacuum' when you cut. So, they hold well together in flourishes.
I tried some tests on this deck, and it aced them all.
1) Doesn't warp in heat and moisture.
2) Corrects warps due to springs by itself
3) I washed a card under running water for 5-6 seconds and it retained its finish. So its water resistant.
Not the flashiest performance deck, but if you want something durable, cheap and decent fr practice, this is recommended.
