This deck seems very nice, but is one of those that feels like it needs a bit of time to find it's happy place. The back design is simple yet elegant, and the faces are traditional with just enough customization to make them different but still recognizable.
Out of the box, they fan beautifully and handle well for moves that don't require a lot of flex. The cards are typical of crushed Bee stock; firm and stiff, yet not quite as stiff as uncrushed Bee stock. I assume they will soften up a little after use, and become very comfortable.
The marking system is completely unusable, at least to my old eyes. But, that isn't something that is even on the radar with these cards for me, so I don't consider that as either positive or negative.
I'll give these an overall score of 4 for now, with the assumption that it will change to a 5 after a bit of use and breaking in.
