The eye doesn't really bother me. That's just like saying that you hate the Ds on the backs of the smoke and mirror cards. Maybe you do. But for me it doesn't detract from the look of the cards.
I don't think $13/deck is that expensive for this deck. You can get them much cheaper through AceKing. Right now you could get a brick for about $70 shipped. If anyone is even thinking about getting this deck.... do it. You'll be glad you did.
But isn't this thread about custom decks?? We all know tallies are great. No need to keep bringing them up when someone asks about custom decks.
I've considered buying some ... hows the finish ?
And yes, my first purchase after this thread was some tally ho decks as i didn't own any prior to that ...
The SS Lions use a Linoid finish simlar to that of the Tally-Hos. It has an awesome feel, you barely need to break them in since they're in optimum condition out of the box.
But it's more durable, right? My current tally-ho's from the new facility are terrible, i can almost never fan them perfectly..
Yea they definitely do. My tallys don't last long either, but the Lions are really durable. They don't clump nor warp, even in the Singapore weather here. Something that everybody's gotta love.
By custom decks, I assumed he meant that until this point, he has been using mainly Bikes and Bees. He also asked for cards to get from t11 and E, since he will be using them for magic and flourishing.
If you honestly think that:
1) You had to go out of the way to say that, just to be a smart ass.
2) Tally-ho's aren't anywhere near what he's looking for.
Then you can say that. But whatever.
Wow you must be an investor for White Knuckle Playing Cards lol.
I have the 1st and 2nd edition of these cards and while I agree that the face cards are beautiful, the eyeball is pretty ugly and $13 is pretty darn expensive for a deck of cards.
This is all just my opinion of course...
