Hey guys,

I recently create a lot of gaff cards and I would like to ask for advice from people who have a lot of experience with it.

Is there a certain 'version' of Bicycle cards which works the best? There are many versions of the Bicycle Rider Back, for example Bicycle Rider Back 808, Bicycle Gold Standard, Bicycle Elite Edition etc.

I grabbed a box of cards today that contained a bunch of old cards. I splitted some cards and noticed that some have way thicker or more solid outer layers and others that were so thin, you baiscally could see through them... Clearly there were many different versions mixed in this box. Sadly I don't know which cards are which version.

Does anyone know how the different versions differentiate in terms of thickness of the inner/outer layers?

Thanks a lot Smile

I’ve been splitting cards for 15ish years. No particular version of Bikes split better, worse, or easier than another. Sometimes you will encounter a stubborn deck, but more or less all USPCC decks split the same. I have split thin crush stock, bike stock, Bee stock, etc. I was the first person to ever split a deck of Elite Bikes, cause I was the first person outside the factory to hold a deck. No practical difference in the end result thickness from one to another on the thin paper pieces - slight difference with the center glue layer.

The thin layers being a bit thinner (more transparent) or a bit thicker can vary from batch to batch - I’ve seen it happen on standard Bikes, Turners, and Elite, as well as decks from the old factory and the current factory. Just depends on the specific batch.
