A nice THIN deck of cards?

Discussion in 'Product Questions and Reviews' started by peace(dollar)&love, Jul 6, 2012.

  1. So I'll get right into it.

    A few weeks ago I got back into cards and what not (cardistry mainly) and so I've been discovering what's happend in the card world. I was really psyched when I saw D&D's Fulton's clip joint cards. I fell in love with the dessigne. However, I was quite disapointed watching reviews as many people were mentioning "Nice thick stock". To clarifie, I don't what cards to have thick stock. (which is not to say I won't ge tthe fulton's because I'm not so close minded to dismis a deck just like that)

    Anyhow, the question here is pretty simple, what is a resonable deck of cards with thin stock(no one say absolut vodka....not resonable)?

    P.S. I do own quite a few stingers and love them (You know....if anyone was intrested in my suggestion.)
     
  2. Bee is good for cardistry due to their cambric finish which allows cards to be bent more, without giving to much damage to the cards.

  3. Wow, right after reading your post I fetched a deck, and it true. I've only ever used bees for gambling moves but they do feel pretty good for flourishes. Thank you ery much for that tip, I really like handling bees and over the many years I have, I've never tryed flourishing with them.

    Funny coincidence, fulton's clip joints are suposed to be cambric (lots of people say it isn't but it's still a funny coinsidense).

    Anyway, thanks, great advice, the soft stock of bees does emulat a thin deck, although I would like to know about a deck with actual thin card so if anyone can think of one let me know.

    thank you again Steve, great advice.
     
  4. Hey it's my pleasure, glad I could help. :)

  5. Have you tried 'Aviator' playing cards? They are made by the United States Playing Card Company just as Bicycle & Bee and I found this:

    Worth a shot.

  6. Oh cool. No, I haven't tried them, but I have seen them before, I'll check it out.

    Thanks again ^^
     
  7. To me the finish on Aviators feels a little "stickier"-- that is, the cards don't fan or spread as well as Bikes, persay, but that means they tend to cut a little better. If you work the deck a little they can be quite bendy too. I'm not cardist though.

    Good luck!
     
  8. Thanks for the heads up, I'll give them a try as soon as I get the chance.
     
  9. I like the JAQK Cellars deck, nice and thin and they fan really good!!!!!
     
  10. Yeah? Cool. Sadly, not too easy to your hands on now a days, but I'll keep that in mind, you know, if they geet reprintede (hint hint).
     
  11. Stingers is looove. I just don't like it on tornado and kick flip skater. Very nice deck.
     
  12. My favourite 'Thin' Deck are Massa's.
     
  13. Yes, they are a very nice deck of cards. I love them, the only thing is that the linen finish wheres off fast, but it's not that big a problem.
     
  14. Go with the Bee Erdnase "Expert at the Card Table" deck. By far the thinest and lightest deck that I've ever handled!
     
  15. Sadly these are out of print making them rather expensive on ebay, but if I get the chance, I gert some.
     
  16. I play many time deck cards with my bro… A thin deck of cards make good grip, and can be change fa quickly. I like to play with my thin deck of cards.
