I'm looking to either purchase a Porper Card Clip or a Nielsen Card Press. In the long run, I will [probably] end up purchasing both-- as of now, just one is good. The Porper Clip has the advantage of being smaller and more portable, but the Nielsen Press can hold more cards and squeeze tighter.

I know it's an objective question, but I'd like your opinion on which would be more valuable, from a manipulation standpoint.

Oh, and where are some good places to buy Bee cards cheaply? Smile

Thanks!

If you are going to be using the clips for your treated manipulation cards I suggest getting a Neilson Card Press. It holds tighter and keeps the card ready for manipulation. If your doing close up and want a card guard get a proper, everyone I’ve talked to says it make your card last longer than just a plain card guard. Hope this helps.

Try getting a bulk of packs at Sams Clubs.

Yes, they're really for two entirely different things. The clip is for keeping a deck of cards crisp and straight in your pocket(usually used by close-up guys), while the Nielson press is for stage manipulation cards (usually used by stage guys). Basically it straightens them out after you've broken them in.
