John Ascuaga's Nugget Review

Discussion in 'Product Questions and Reviews' started by Manahan, Sep 9, 2008.

  1. So, one day my dad walks in with two new casino decks from the bargain shop that sells discontinued casino cards, aristocrat, carta mundi, bee, etc etc. Anyways, he got me one new carta mundi deck which is pretty awesome, and this aristocrat called, John Ascuaga's Nuggets, they are Friggin' siiick, my fav design on the aristocrat stock, beatiful handling.

    Looks

    Backs:
    I love the red nugget logo, its my favourite part of the deck, also i really like how it has borders that fade in, lovely backs if you like the bee/aristocrat backs, best one imho.also it has the 4 pips on each corner (see picture). 8/10 if you like this style.

    Faces:
    Tech art faces like the brown Wynns, basic aristocrat ace, and everything, nothing special. Darker reds too. 6/10


    Feels

    Finish:
    Great Finish, Fans Amazing!!! the basic aristocrat casino finish but it feels lovely! 9/10

    Fans:
    As stated, they fan amazing out of the box, havent broken them in yet. One of the better fanning decks for a casino deck. Feels like a split spade. 10/10

    Stock:
    mid-stiff and thin, very snappy and cool.I like em. 8/10

    Cuts:
    Don't do too much XCM but they hold together pretty nicely, not as good as wynns but they are pretty decent. 7/10

    Spring:
    Cool springy feeling and pretty thin but stiff, like it alot 8/10


    Overall:
    Siiiiick aristocrat deck, I love 'em. 8/10
     
  2. I live 5 minutes away from the Nugget. I'll have to see if I can pick some up.
     
  3. I got these exact same cards, 9 unopened decks at my local dollar store.
     
  4. they are pretty good for 1 dollar.
