Hi all,

I just saw a video on how about to make a stripper deck.

Do you think it's a good think to make (a part of) our own magic accessories or it's better to buy it ?

You learn more from making tricks. You learn how to repair them if needed, and how to replace them quickly and inexpensively. Later, if you want to buy the same prop for comparing, at least you will know how to fix it when things go (inevitably) wrong.

I think it's better to make them yourself. Many times you'll end up with a product that is more meaningful to you, and potentially better quality. However, "better" is a highly subjective word, and there's nothing wrong with buying stuff. If you can't make time to make your own props/accessories, then by all means buy them. I'll also point out that if you're willing to put the work into making it yourself, you're more likely to practice and come up with a good routine for the object in question.

Tora has some great advice in this thread for making your own stripper deck, if you're so inclined.
