Customer reviews for Bicycle Short Deck
The "Bicycle Short Deck (Red)" is a great deck of cards for card enthusiasts and magicians looking to create something new or give a twist to Svengali tricks. The red color adds a pop of color to any routine and the deck is durable, shuffles well, and the cards are easy to handle. Overall, a great deck for the price.
This is a great deck, as
It's great what you can acheive, when you use short cards either in a regular deck, or certain gaffed decks.
I think every magician must have these cards. Many things can be done
I bought this along with a "One Way Forcing Deck" so I could make my own "Reverse Svengali Deck", worked perfectly!
Short cards can of course be easily made, but the value here is getting a deck of them all perfectly cut the same way. I bought it for making a Svengali deck which I'd advise you to as well, or a Mirage deck if you have any roughing equipment. Alternately, think of a new kind of gaffed deck and make it yourself, if you want to get into making gimmicked decks, this is essential.
