I'm quite surprised by some of the results. I fully expected Mmemonica and Aronson to be top, but the popularity gap between the top few and the rest is very high. Also, I didn't realise there were so many stacks - quite a few I never heard of! And I'm surprised that so many use their own stack. Also, a little surprised how few bother with Nikola - I guess it had been surpassed.

Anyone else surprised at any of the results?

This poll has been going for a year now, and what I am surprised at is, either there isn't that many magicians using stacks or that they haven't seen this poll.

Thought I had responded...

I started with Aronson, but now use my own stack.

The only stack I know is the Aronson. Not sure I want to vote, though, I'm happy with the research I did before picking the Aronson stack. And since I've learned it, I thought I might as well comment. Still working on speeding up recall. It'll probably be another two months before I start getting serious with it. At this point, if you give me one to two minutes, I can write down every card at its proper position, but that's not quite enough.
