Im interested in ordering some of these, the main reason being that at my Walgreens they are $3.89 a deck, and these are $3.99 a deck, and gas and shipping are about the same, so the price per deck is all that matters. The main question: Do the Masters handle better than the regular?

They might handle a little better. The hold up better. And they have a "bar code" reveal. Hope this helps.

I ordered 12 decks when they were first released. I have decided that I prefer a standard deck. You can get a twelve pack of regular Bikes at Costco for $12.99. I like to do some card acrobatics and the standard deck works better for me. I also think they work better for most card flourishes and moves.

It's entirely subjective at this point. The two biggest differences are the thickness of the stock, and the finish.

I've found that over time, I've preferred the thicker cards, as they seem to stand up to my abuse a little longer.

I used these cards for a time and did like the thicker stock and excellent finish. However, there was nothing that I could do with these cards that I couldn't with my regular Bicycle decks that I purchased from my local big box retailer.

The Masters Edition cards are more durable. But to me, what's the difference between using a deck for two weeks versus one week? The deck will still wear out but will take a little longer.

You can read my thoughts on these cards at:

Thanks Wayne, that review really helped! I have to see how long they last me and figure it all out from there.
