I don't feel that they are worth the extra cost, but many people do.

I will stick with my regular blue/red bikes.

Here in my country almost always I'm sold out. I have to re-order again.

It seems to be really hot!

I got a packet but Im not convinced they were worth the money. I will keep them in good condition and just pull them out for special occasions.

They really just look cool. But, they do feel different. They don't seem to react any differently when I practice with them.

They feel the same to me. They are really cool looking, but when you use them, it is harder to convince your spectator that it is not a "trick deck". Also, the fronts are all black and white, so color changes don't look as cool.

I have a deck simply as a curiousity. Of course your spectator would think that they are a gaffed deck. Still, they are simply beautiful.

I ran out to get them as soon as my local magic store got them, I was so excited, I now wish I would have got something that I will use, o'well... good for the collection, but that's about it!

I think its worth owning one deck. They are great visually but when people see them, they think they are a trick pack of cards. I think the coating is the same, the extra cost is to do with the extra ink needed to print them.

Black Tigers are cool. They're the same as all other Bike cards but the prints are the negatives of the cards. As for as general performance, its all how you play it out. For looks, ya, they're pretty cool. But if you mix them in using regular cards, storylines, and so forth, you can have your act(s) hit pretty hard on the spectator.

IMO, they're not essential to any card technician, but they sure as heck help with building a rep... if done properly.

Black Tiger Decks look really flashy in the magician's eye but it rises suspicion in a layman's eye. However, suspicion is eliminated if pulled out in a real performance. I don't recommend it for street magic though..

I have one but I won't use it... I just think it will make people more suspicious of the cards...

The 1st edition are really poor quality and after about a day or two they tend to stick togeter like mad!

The 2nd edition are better quality then the 1st but still don't last as long as regular bikes. You can also get the "2nd edition in "classic" or Red Pips".

However, I do a lot of pub and niteclub work and the 2nd edition cards glow green under U.V light, which is a great attention grabber in niteclibs!
That's all i have to say about that!

Hi Pamela! Black Tiger Decks are Bicycle cards that just came out and has been a hit to card workers as well as the layman.

The quality of the cards are amazing. They're slicker than the regular blue and red. They look really good when doing XCM to.

I love my Tiger deck. I use it all the time. Havent had any problem with people thinking they are "trick" cards either. But I also show them to peeps before I start any thing with them. A lot of guys in KC use these. Most the guys around here that I know that use them have been using the same deck for over 2 months and the cards are still like new. I have been on mine for a month and don't have any problems with them sticking. Get a deck. They are worth it just to have. But spectators wont suspect any thing. It's how you present it.
