Looking for a good deck for card magic?

Hi Guys,

As the title says, I'm just starting on magic and I gather that you need a special type of magic card to do certain tricks.

People on the internet seem to agree that Bicycle brand playing cards are one of the best for beginners, and I've come across this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bicycle-Guar...le+Magic+Cards

Can you let me know the difference between the different types of playing cards, etc? Also, where in Ireland would I be able to buy things like this?

OK, first things first.

Yes , you CAN get gaffed decks.
No , you don't NEED a gaffed deck.
Bicycles are the most widely used brand among magicians. They DO NOT make the magic happen.

casinoshop.ie have a reasonable selection of decks.
lamagic.ie is an Irish online shop
alakazam.co.uk are an english website with a wide selection of magic items

If you're looking for a retail shop that stocks Bicycle decks I think "Gamers World" on jervis street have them at their counter.
