In my case it's a little different. I generally do MD effects with my own stack (which is a slightly modified QuickStack) which can NOT be shuffled from NDO. I do have several effects that can make use of the Si Stebbins stack which I do not have memorized.

In my environment I generally have a deck in QuickStack order already or I am going to be opening a new pack. In either case, it's nice to know I've got a stack ready to go either way. Actually, I prefer to use my stack since it's memorized. I do not have SS memorized so any effect(s) I do with it can't require me to figure out too many positions/cards at once.

Is it documented in the .pdf as to how to get into Si Stebbins Pro from both NDO and from Si Stebbins (standard) ?

Yes it is documented with kindly permission of Mr. Darwin Ortiz.
Into SS in very short instruction. Insiders will still understand this.
Into SSPro in detail.

Cohiba , Steven : thanks for the details you gave for your approach.

In my environment (informal amateur performance at the office or at the pub) I always use the deck that is available and never mine.

I'm still a big fan of Simon Aronson's stack. I've been using it for about 10 years now. I love the way Simon thinks. The first time I learned it, it took about 2 hours of going through the cards, but then you know all 52 cards backwards and forwards. However, sometimes, I have to refresh my memory if I haven't done a stacked trick in a while, which takes a few minutes usually.

I used to use the BCS until I learned the Tamariz stack, memorized decks are more natural when recalling, invest your time and learn a memorized stack, it will pay dividends.
