I just started learning card manipulation. My Jeff Sheridan DVD (Genius at Work #2 - Card Manipulations) will be here pretty soon where I will start my journey towards card manipulation. I learned backpalming from the Jeff McBride DVD (Art of Card Manipulation) and learned how to do backpalm productions on my own.

However, this thread is a review on the Juliana Chen Manipulation Cards I picked up. First off, I really didn't know what to expect since this was my first deck of manipulation cards. I was surprised to find that the cards are much smaller than I expected. I thought they would be slightly less smaller than poker size cards but the dimensions are 2 1/6" x 3 3/8". This is not a problem though as they make productions much easier. They shouldn't be used in close-up situations because of their size.

The box that the cards come in really cheap...but don't let that fool you. The cards themselves are very thin (I believe 3/8"), flexible, and durable. However, they do not fan well out of the box, so fanning powder or wax would probably be useful. The back of the card is very pretty. It is a cream color with a cartoon image of Chen and her name.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the product I received. It has made card manipulation less frustrating, since I was using regular blue back bikes before I got these. I'm curious as to whether the other manipulation cards are the same (ex. Murphy's, Lee Eun Gyeol's, etc.)

Here is a youtube video I made that shows the card and a 5 card production:

How 'sturdy' are the cards? Usually after I break in a deck they will last a few months of heavy use, but then I have to move on to a fresh deck.

Juliana Chen says she uses her decks for a year of regular use. She now is selling completely 100% plastic cards. She said at her lecture she still uses the her regular cards.
