Can anyone give an opinion on the El Duco jumbo cards, now that Bikes are going away? Are they the preferred replacement? Or is there a differenet brand? (Or has all this already been covered in a thread I couldn't find!?!)

I think you refer to the Giant Anglo Deck. These cards are excellent and handle better than the old Bicycle Jumbo Cards which I have, however, these were made in China. I have some double facers in Giant Anglo Decks that expand the range of effects you can perform with these beauties. I hope they print some gimmicked cards in the Anglo Giant Version. They are highly visible from a distance and for parlor presentations these are great. When I saw their range of products in Beijing at FISM they had beautiful poker size decks with many different color backs which were very elegant. The backs of the Giant Anglo Cards is also beautiful and very elegant with ornate silver arabesques. Very classy indeed. They're pricey however especially with a very poor exchange with the euro nowadays.

The Anglo cards have huge indeces - much bigger than on Bike jumbos! When Bob Sheets performed at an Abbott's Close-Up Convention, years ago, he said that he used the cards in 1,000 seat venues. He performed Homing Card, with Anglo cards. The card stock is the size of Hoyle jumbos.

One could use Bike poker jumbo index cards, instead of Bike jumbos, because the indeces are the same size as on the jumbos.

I bought some King-Size Cards Set (C5601) Each card measures 11" x 8", for $9.98 from Harrietcarter. I was expecting some flimsy pieces of thin card board, but they are very sturdy (comparable to my jumbo McCombical deck), with a nice glossy finish (which tends to make them a bit heavy)

HC intended these as novelty cards, but these could be used to make some simple gaffs, or used as is.
