For me, over the past few years I've just used standard Bikes since I bought a brick of them at Costco and am just now running low. I know most gaffs and gimmicks are made using Bikes but I don't use gimmicks (other than the Invisible deck and an occasional double backer/facer) often enough for that to be a primary reason. Most of the card tricks I do use a standard deck. I am considering switching to the Phoenix deck or Bicycle Elites but I'm not sure yet. Anyway, that's not the point. I was wondering what your deck for everyday use is and why? Do you also use some version of standard bikes? Do you use higher quality decks like those made by Theory11? Or were you a huge fan of the bright yellow with bleeding eyes design of Criss Angel's deck?
