I bought the original banshee cards a few years back and was absolutely delighted that they came back with a updated version of the card. I will admit am no master at throwing cards. Miss the target most the time breaking the original cards really easily, With the advanced I can hit a hard target like a wall by accident a good amount of times before any damage too the card unlike the original where hitting the wall once was pretty much a death sentence for the card.
The new advanced version defiantly flys through the air smoother and easier then the original one. The durability is defiantly better and more noticeable. with almost no added weight to it. Both the original and the advanced cards are not the greatest for learning to throw cards cause they easily can be an hurdle when learning due to how they are designed and are meant for people who have previously learned or can already consistently throw cards with some degree of skill and accuracy. Not saying they are not a quality product for learning but it can frustrating when using them when you haven't build up enough practice to get a consistent stable spin on the card or you accuracy is not the best cause they can easily be thrown off if not consistently thrown with a good spin
