the deck looks absolutely gorgeous (even in person). I was initially a little nervous to pick these up because of how much they advertized them being thin (I prefer cards that are slightly stiff) but was very happy when they showed up. the crushed stock in this deck is fabulous. it feels like double the material from normal bikes but crushed down thinner. they are very snappy and fan wonderfully. it's a shame that ellusionist has to discontinue them.
