-What playing cards do you use for a high end business gig ?
-Walking around just doing close up magic at a mall or at a coffee shop
-Just hanging out with friends.
-What cards do you use to practice ?
1. I enjoy using decks that either match my style for the day or a deck that is specific to something I am working on (i.e. if I'm working on my marked deck work, new gimmicked deck, etc.)
2. Hanging out with friends I tend to use whatever cheaper deck I have so that I can really have some fun with tearing cards up, loading cards under/in cups of water, etc.
3. Weirdly I actually enjoy using brand new cards to practice, something about practicing a move from the time a deck is new all the way to when its really broken in gets me both a feel for doing whatever I am practicing with different levels of the deck being broken in, as well as makes it easier for me at first. Obviously if you are doing something where you don't want the cards to slide, an older deck is necessary
