    I've been into flourishing for awhile, but I want to try other cards, so out of this list what do you recommend? I've tried Tally Hos only and Bikes of course, so I need a change for once. Thanks!!!
  2. wynn, aladdin, lions

    vintage series are nice also!
  3. Hardly anyone will agree with me here, but I find that Aviators are stiff and hold together rather well.

    Plus, they are cheap.

    The only downside is the rather plain back designs.

    I see them around Food Lion and some pharmacies.

  4. Aviators are great for spread stuff :p They're pretty stiff, too.

    Wynns are awesome.

    I havent used most of em, tho.
  5. I'm really into Blue Split Spades.
    I love the detail on the back of the cards.
    There's just so much going on in there and fanning with it is unbelievable.
    Their my new everyday deck.
  6. I gotta tell you, ALL of these cards are great for flourishing. Except for arccos. They're good for magic, yes. And they can be used for flourishing but they're a little slippery.
  7. Slippery is a good do you think you're supposed to fan?

    You look like you have a good selection of cards there. WPT White Borders are like Tally quality, possibly better. Nobody here will vote for those, but get them. They are worth it. Not to mention the back design is smexy.

    I don't know about Smoke and Mirrors...and if the next time I visit this thread you've decided to buy Wynns, I'm gonna throw up. They spread like *cant remember who said this* "shards of broken glass*. Credits to whoever said that, because he's pretty much 100% right.
  8. I bought a deck of Wynns yesterday and I couldn't fan them. But I could do arm spreads and ribbon spreads. Weird huh.
  9. Buy some cheap decks of casino cards. On ebay they sell random lots of unopened casino cards for 2 dollars a deck. Buy some of those and practice with them. Plus, you might have discovered the next Brown Wynn's!

    (I like Ellis Island casino cards myself.)
  10. Wynns=cuts
    WPT=everyday all-rounder :D
  11. A deck of purple wynns just came in the mail for me and they are awesome. Not only do they feel awesome, but they have the best back design of any card in the world. I still think you should buy random casino cards but Wynn's are awesome!!!
  12. I meant slippery as in they don't hold together well. They're also not too great at fanning. So slippery doesn't always mean they fan well
  13. Who cares about the cards
    Im the one doing the work not them
    so it doesnt matter which ones I use
    I can do miracles with any type of cards
    If you think cards are going to make you better you are wrong
    make no mistake about it
  14. didn't you get banned?
  15. I like using index cards. They hold really well and have a nice finish. Sometimes their even easier to write on than Bicycle Playing Cards.
