Hey everyone. I've recently been exploring the wonderful and exciting world of cardistry. I'm getting my feet wet and learning some basic core skills..basic cuts and shuffles, grips and fans. And I really enjoy this so far. Something very cool and yes, sometimes very frustrating too. But I'm curious...how often do you change decks you use for practise? When do I know it's time to change? I'm practising with basic bicycle cards..they aren't that flashy and fancy. But while I'm learning the basics...I feel like I'm running thru a deck pretty quickly..since lot of pending, dropping and just general twisting while trying to figure things out. So, as the basic bicycles aren't that expensive getting a new deck isn't a big issue but I'm curious what is the average 'lifespan' for a deck? Do the more expensive decks last longer or are they just more flashy?
