I am seriously considering buying Mr. Abbott's Smart-A** effect, but I can't afford to keep replenishing the decks after each show,but at the same time love the concept, so I was wondering if anyone performs this trick in a way that doesn't toss the decks to the back of the stage. Or, since I haven't bought it yet for this reason, can just inform as to whether or not it is important to the workings of the deck to be throwing it, without, of course, giving away the secret. Thanks for the help

Together with Trevor Lewis I came up with a complete different approach where you ditch cards until the very end, leaving you with a single card.

When you show the deck at the beginning, you will show a full deck of 52 cards plus jokers. We use a net or a bag and throw the cards inside there. Why should I

- ruin the stage
- and the cards

if someone else will perform afterwards.

Our approach needs a special deck (as with Bill´s version), but it is completely different. The preparation is long lasting as no stickyness or roughness is involved. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me.

There is indeed no need to throw them.
But you can if you want to...

There is some misinformation in this thread.

First of all you don't need to replace the deck after every show. I have several back-up decks, but have never used them. Still using the same deck I bought two years ago.

On the Smart-Ass instructional DVD, Bill covers several options of not having the cards thrown on the stage, but rather in a container. Didn't you guys watch the DVD?
