What Does Stock Mean?

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by TheMagicianInvisible, Jul 25, 2012.

  1. Hi,

    I often watch deck reviews on YouTube, and hear them say stock. It has a good stock, an aristocrat stock, but I don't know what that means. Could you please tell me what stock means in a simple way, because I'm only a kid so not too larger words please.

    Thanks so much for the help,

    TMI :cool:
     
  2. The stock is the type and thickness of the paper used to print the playing cards on. Some stocks are very thin, some can be very thick. It can affect different aspects of the cards handling abilities. For example, springs may be easier or harder if the stock is thinner or thicker because when the stock is thinner, the cards are easier to bend and vice versa.
     
  3. Ok, so how would you describe a standard bike?
     
  4. This is kind of tough because Bicycle is often used as the standard. A deck of stud cards are thinner and a deck of Arcanes is thicker.
     
  5. I'd describe it as your basic stock as to the minimum standards most working magicians prefer when it comes to cards. I don't think there's a way to describe it without assuming the reader has had at the very least some degree of experience handling cards before.
