Out of the box, a standard, non-fancy card dribble lands all cards flush. I don't have that control with any other deck of cards. I can also prolong the dribble so I can almost feel every card released. Cannot do that with other top quality decks quite the same. Even a used deck works well here.
The card are springy for Double Lifts, which is handy, but depends on what technique you use.
The cards are lightweight but feel like normal thickness. They don't feel too thin despite their weight.
I have used only a couple of these decks over a couple of months. Like others, the cards do clump eventually. The cards have a slight run-away effect when new, like many other decks, which could cause doubles to split, for example. But this wears off quickly.
The backs aren't rough, and not slippery either, but after a while, when they clump, they feel waxy, and the doing a Pinky Pulldown or card buckle is risky (ie hard to separate two cards). But this is the same with other decks. You just have to be prepared to open a new pack easier than I did.
The deck is expensive compared to the cheapies and won't last as long as some other decks, but if you're into card magic, especially sleights, you are used to replacing decks regularly anyway. It's just a matter of whether you find it worth the extra price to get higher grade cards. For peace of mind with card dribbling, and the calming worry-bead effect, I prefer the top-grade stock.
The negative colouring of the deck is not standard, and not ideal for a spectator-chosen card, so if doing a card trick, such as Ambitious Card, make sure to have the card signed. And be armed with metallic Sharpie markers.
