These decks are stiff and may not be the best for cardistry, but you can't beat their unique borderless design. I like these cards a lot for 1/2 card flourishes and springs. These things will last forever, I can tell. Tip for new cardists: these may be helpful for building up strength/control and will last longer when you're dropping cards during the learning processes. They are also a bit harder to bend, so that'll be a saving grace when you aggressively try snatching a card out of the air lol.
