Hi all! Firstly I apologize if this is the wrong section or if this is already discussed here at the Café (I couldn't find with search). So here's the question: what is Bicycle supreme line card deck? How does it differ from the normal Bicycle deck, is it better than normal deck? I read that it's made from crushed stock material, what does that mean?

And the last question, is it really better than normal deck? Why or why not?

Thank you in advance!

From what I've read, the main thing is they are printed on crushed stock and are traditionally cut.

I'll begin with the "traditionally cut" feature. At some point, many USPCC cards began to be cut face-down. Traditionally cut means cards are face-up when the blade hits the paper. This method of cutting results in cards that are slightly narrower on the face as compared to the back. This is a very small difference, but it creates a "wedge" shape to the card and that benefits either bottom-up Faro or tabled Faro Shuffles.

The crushed stock is literally paper stock that has been crushed between rollers. It results in a thinner, denser card and it ends up improving some of the handling characteristics of the card in addition to making the deck demonstrably thinner.

Hope that helps.

Yes, thank you for answering! I'll give them a try to see if they are better than 'normal line' ones.
