Hi there!

So what's your favorite three decks that you own? For cardistry or card magic

My picks:

Cardistry
* Odyssey Boreal edition
* Absolut deck
* Origin cardistry touch

Magic
* Fournier 605
* Aristocrat 727
* Tally Ho circle back

...what about yours?

What is cardistry?

I think cardistry is a skill and art-form involving the use of card flourishes and motion to captivate and amaze.

I notice that you include Fournier 605. I have a bunch of the 505s and even after a couple of months, they are terrible at fanning and spreading. Have you had this problem and solved it? Or do find that you cannot use them for all effects. Or are the 605s significantly different than the 505s? I am just about to give up on them.
So many sleights...so little time.
Cheers,

Teddy

Yes, the 505s are very very hard, in my opinion the 605s are better because after a couple of weeks its feeling is different, you can perform faro shuffle easily. It does not fan and spreading well however it is not made for that, it is made for playing cards. This cards sticks together really very well and it is very very durable. Just my opinion.

I have a lot of bikes, they are great. Yeah, with a borrowed deck it's the ideal situation to do magic.

Thanks for responding. I guess the 505s are merely a bit of card history for me. I only use them for practicing sleights/effects that do not involve efficient or artistic sliding or spreading of cards.
So many sleights...so little time.
Cheers,
