Theory11 Tally Ho's

Discussion in 'Product Questions and Reviews' started by MagicSanj, Mar 22, 2010.

  1. Hey Everyone,

    There has been a lot of conspiracy regarding the NEW, Black-Seal Tally-Ho decks.

    Some (possibly unreliable) sources say that the new, black-seal tally ho's feel very thin, papery, dehydrated, and are worse than normal bikes... So why spend the money on tallies then...?

    To anyone who has bought tallies from theory11 within the last few days/weeks:

    -Did you receive Blue-Seal tallies?

    -How was the quality?

    -Are the boxes different than the original blue-seal boxes?

    Also, can anyone tell me if these rumors are true? (About the black-seal tallies...)

    Thanks a lot,

    -Sanj
     
  2. i bought some tallies and they were black seal. Ive only opened about two of them but haven't noticed too big of a difference if any. But i just broke them in and left them to breath. i'll check them and get back to you after i find them.
     
  3. I got some in December (I know, not the last few weeks), but they are exactly like you described. Very thing, papery, and they clump like nothing else. About a week of working them in and they sort of fanned better. (They had a black seal if I remember correctly)
     
  4. Hmmm... so this completely contradicts the post before yours...

    You may have gotten a bad batch?
     
  5. I also ordered in December and got some poor quality decks.
     
  6. good

    mine are black seal and they feel like tallys great finish good quality no problemss
     
  7. not to be racist against any particular seals, but black seals seem to be just plain bad. I recently got a brick of bikes, and each had a black seal, and every single deck was cut poorly, with uneven/off-center borders, and the deck itself was rough and clumpy. not sure what the deal is here...
     
  8. I got some Black Seals and don't have any complaints. They feel the same as my blue sealed deck which I got from a shop. I have yet to notice any off center printing on the black seal, but there are a handful of misaligned cards in the blue.
     
  9. I think there was a bad batch in December?

    J.
     
  10. Well, maybe we can contact the US playing card company to deal with the problem. I think the company itself is responsible for the poor quality of the cards, not Theory11.
     
  11. Dont blame T11 guys! Blame the US playing card company. T11 just sell the cards.
     
  12. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I got mine at a Costco, not T11. I think JDENredden is right about a bad batch.
     
  13. last week I bought 2 bricks of blue circle backs (not from t11) they also have the black seal and one thing caught my attention, the backs of the boxes. 2 or maybe 3 of them have a bigger border around the back design (just on the back of the box, not on the cards) maybe their machines are getting older ? :p

  14. Got a chance to fiddle with some Bikes that had a black sticker. I didn't notice any difference at all.

    I'm also thinking it was just a bad batch that slipped through QC at USPCC.
     
  15. I hope it was just a bad batch!! I feel lame because I've never gotten a deck of Tallies, and everyone thinks so highly of them. If they're all bad now, I wont get to know how they handle. The closest I guess I've gotten was a split spades. I think they're the same, right?
