This deck is now available in red Bikes from the card collection at £26. Is anyone using this on a regular basis?

It's not a deck that is available that often but one of the best routines I've seen with this deck was by Marc Paul who at the time had a couple for sale at well aboe that price.

His routine was a magician fooler although I can't fully remember how it went it was that long ago.

Marc's routine is "the Ideal Tossed Deck". It's in his lecture notes.

Not to sure about this one, spotted the method almost straight away.

But then again for the layperson it has great potential.....

Philip Sweeting did a nice review on this deck at Bicycle-Cards.co.uk.

There's a routine for the Monte Cristo deck in Walter Gibson's "What's New in Magic". My copy is over fifty years old but there's a modern reprint (although it seems to have been discontinued now). However, Karl Fulves has an ingenious version with ordinary cards; it's in his ridiculously underpriced book "Easy Magic".
