I have purchased three Mastermind decks over the past few years and all three are garbage quality. For nearly $30 per deck, these should (IMHO) be high quality cards that can be fanned and spread smoothly. Instead the feel and handle like junk cards from some kiddie magic set. Does anyone have a reference to a manufacturer of a good quality Mastermind deck? I truly love what can be done with this deck, but can't justify using such cr#%+y cards in my professional work. Any help would be much appreciated.

Yeah, same here. Spent a lot of money myself on those decks only to never use them.
Obviously there's something wrong with their printing process. I have Position Impossible by
Brent Braun and that deck is similar to Mastermind but smooth and slick like a reg bicycle deck.

Thanks Andrew. I will check it out. As for the Mastermind, not only is it a junk quality deck, it's only available in red. What's that all about? Anyway, I'm done with that deck and will look at "Position Impossible."

A little zinc stearate fixed my Mastermind.

Position Impossible by Bent Braun is awesome; I have one and plan on getting a back up when the second run is ready in November. I also own Mastermind and can tell you that Position Impossible is much better. However, I believe that Position Impossible is also only available in red.

The deck that comes with Wayne Houchin's "Influence" is really good in my opinion. Made by Theory 11 and with blue back, which is not very usual.

The deck now comes with bicycle backs. Does that mean that the quality is OK now?

Cardshark recently released it in Phoenix red backs: http://www.card-shark.de/ (the URL parser doesn't work correctly, so choose "Online store" -> "New releases" and you should see it).
Don't have it, but I'm assuming it should be better quality than the Bicycle backs that apparently don't spread well.

Good point Orlan ...
the Mind Power Deck is excellent quality, and increasing in value all the time.
You will be hard pushed to find anyone selling this deck.

Presently retailing at £40+ in the UK ...

Just purchased Mastermind yesterday (red bicycle). It feels pretty darn good to me.

My Bike Masterminds has to be "zinc'd" as well.
It's not their senses that mislead, it's their assumptions.

Seems the quality is hit and miss. The borders are my biggest concern. I have seen some way off, and not consistent.
