I use bad quality, half-dollar, Chinese decks. They last around two months before they go stale... I want to buy a good Bicycle brand deck to do better flourishes and so that I don't need to invest in cards every once in a while. How long does a Standard Bicycle deck last? And what about "Bee" decks? I've been hearing some good words on Tally Ho as well. As a side question, what are the steps one can take to take care of one's deck?
