Bees or Tally hos???
Well it depends what you want to do. Bees are cut in such a way that it's easier to faro from the bottom up (the standard way for hands and table) and tally hoes and regular cards like Bicycles are cut so that a top down weave is easier.
But in truth, as people mentioned in your other thread, is that any deck usually requires a bit of working in or even preparing (ie sanding lightly) before it's easy to faro consistently. It's all practice, just keep at it and you'll get it.
THANKS, Have you by any chance used the Phoenix deck?? Some said they faro really well.
They do. I use them regulary. They faro easily out of the box. No preparation necessary. The first runs of the Phoenix deck had two different cuts, but the actual ones are all cut that top-down-faros are easier (the non-classical cut). Which is the cut I prefer.
Aristocrats seem to do well for the top to bottom faros, opposite direction from Bees.
