Fantastic deck beyond compare. Worth every cent and simmer be the standard for many years to come. Beg, borrow or steal to get your paws on these. You won't regret it!
Completely obsessed with this deck. I've now performed with them in stroll around events and I've carried a deck with me for weeks while practicing on it. They flat out hold up. No clumping. Still spreads smooth.
The box is pure elegance. The little gems on the box and in this this deck makes it my top 3 favorites for 2017 easily.
Just got this deck, great Cards!
Beautiful for Magic and Flourishes, perfect for card games.
Easily some of the best quality decks I've bought thus far. I only wish that tuck box was made of something sturdier. Feels great, backs are great, but that black private reserve isn't anything special from what I've gathered.
The hype was all there, unfortunately the cards aren't. Now I will say this, the actual playing card paper is amazing! If you thought Chris Ramsay and Madison's knights was thin, This is thin! HOWEVER the color is NOT that nice gold look that you see in the pictures, Its like a mustard yellow and very dull so if you're going just off looks then yeah you'll be disappointed as I was cause now I have a brick of these to waste away. Also that "Private Reserves" is just a black box instead of a white box, nothing else special. Very disappointed.
Just get this deck. This deck was created by someone who is becoming a legend in card magic (Jeremy Griffith). You'll own a piece of the legend when buying this deck. That is all!
Lovely cards! Very good design! Fato lovely, so why the 4 stars! Dont believe the private reserve hype! It is a black box but same cards! Like I said great cards, but lazy so called "private reserve!". But forgetting that, would I get more of the Royal Reserves? Yes, I would! Just don't dive in blind!
This is the first deck I've ever bought a brick of. That was how good the marketing for it is!
But would it live up to my very high expectations?
First off, the tuck case. It's not the best I've ever seen, IMO th***1 tuck cases take top spot. But the design is very underplayed and while the quality of the card used in the tuck case isn't amazingly high, the over all feeling of the deck in the hands, while still boxed, oozes subtle, elegant quality.
Open the box up, take out the cards and you know you're holding crushed stock paste boards. Beautiful.
I love all of Madison's decks, I have several Roadhouse decks. These all feel fantastic straight away. But the Royal Reserves handles immediately like a crushed stock deck should, but with the added bonus of having that quality a deck has after you've used it for a few days.
I also got the Private Reserve black deck with my brick of 12. This hasn't been opened. And it never will. By me at least.
Just got these yesterday and honestly I couldn't put them down. One of the best feeling decks Ive ever handled. Very simple design also which I think helps when doing magic. People aren't going to be skeptical right off the rip because you have some crazy custom deck. Will be buying more!!
Let me start by good things. The stock and the finish are great. The feel and handle amazingly, to me almost as good as old aristocrat's stock.
Here comes the bad. The cards aren't cut evenly, the borders are all over the place on pretty much most of the deck. The jokers are bent, you can cut to them even after shuffling and trying to unbend them.
Next thing, the black reserve is actually the same as the white one but in a different box. What the hell?
To be honest the don't live up to all the hype, get a deck but don't buy a brick unless you're certain you want to risk all of the issues I've mentioned above
