"What I think is so great about Technique is how simple and easy it is to create new moves by exploring unknown possibilities. The design seamlessly adapts to the fundamentals of cardistry while simultaneously offering infinite new directions for cardists to explore. It's like (Technique) has unlocked a Pandora's Box of new moves and I can't wait to see what comes from it."

It has been two years in the making and it has gone through multiple design iterations to get it just right. The deck consists of 5 back designs with a rotating border of color. Each color is parallel to its mate. The location of these colors is based on the most common edge grips used in cardistry. Since each back is a one way design, if you rotate it 180 degrees, you get another back design! 10 in total!
The basic use of Technique Playing Cards is to pick one (or more) of the five colors on the back and that is your contact point. Each time you break off a new packet, you reveal a new back design and also a new location for your chosen color! This forces you to contact only that color and ends up putting you into random, new positions and creating new movements every time you break off a new packet!
The faces have been colorized with vibrant pinks, blues, golds, and grays: with the traditional reds being pink and the blacks being a light gray, giving depth and amazing visual appeal when flourishing.
Technique Playing Cards can be used for more than just random creation- it also gets you through those mental creative blocks when trying to find a closer or opener for that flourish you have been stuck on for months.
By limiting how you flourish with Technique Playing Cards, you will actually improve. Play with limiting the colors you use, the number of fingers that touch the cards, or start in the most impossible grips and see where Technique Playing Cards will take you!
Great design, insane finish, looks amazing in motion and I love the concept.
The physical cards themselves have the usual nice texture and handling you'd expect from a modern deck, but of course their standout feature is the edge marking system to inspire new combos and moves. This is just as good as I'd hoped. As a beginner, I'm sure I'm missing plenty of opportunities, but even so, I find myself settling into a different flow than my habituated combos.
