Its about as good as other white bordered bees. Compared to standard indexed Wynns, they’re at least one step up from below average fanning quality. Its still that diamondback cambric finish stuff. New decks fan well. They keep, … decently well too.

Thank the good hold of the stock. And thickness attributed with Bee playing cards. Just the right amount of flex.

-So I picked up 9 of these through Theory 11. I sold six back on eBay to make up for my costs. Out of the 3 remaining. I killed one. Have one open for use. And one sealed. So. People who are reading this. Playing cards is not a good form of investment. Either use them, keep one for a collection, or sell them so others can use / collect / sell them back. Don’t be greedy and stash them for awhile thinking you’ll make money selling these in years. That’s what a job is for.
-Anyways. As far as the cards go, the stock is good for what Bee puts out. The back design is the neat wynn logo, , , In brown. I don’t know many people who have a favorite color of brown. Want to use wynns? Red and Blue are a lot cheaper, and prettier. Brown is rare? Yea…ok…
Also they only come in jumbo index as far as I know. Why would you want that?

Do you know where to look? So when these were introduced, prices were a little…on the high side. Yea. Well now, you should land these around 3$ a deck. Cheaper if you buy in bulk. I won’t say where though,,,since I still need to buy some more.

Wynn : New Box Spread

Okay lets see here…It says Bee’s Diamond Back Club Special. With Cambric Finish. But why are Wynns special. Because because…it’s a solid paint back design. Single color casino logo. But. I would have to say/agree that this is not the same as all other Bees. Its got a more…slick/waxy/crisp feel to it rather than typical say…stocky. Nonetheless it is durable. But the finish is still odd. No super perfect fans new from box. Also, it eats sweat and clumps quickly too. But this makes spreads a little better. See pictures below for an idea.

Awesome. Solid. Cinnamon/crimson red. Like the casino red. Not bright red. Well. Only because I care about the reds only. Blue/violet..whatever…heh.

Diagonal card insertion: Good. Check.
Culling portion of the move. Not so good. Moves additional cards in the spread due to the finish. Scary. Not entirely avoidable. Darn.

-So. Wynn casino. I was holding off on posting on these for awhile. Until I got some jumbo indexes. Because I hear they’re different. As for brown wynns. I sold most of mine off on eBay. They’re okay. Probably get into those tomorrow. Wynn. It’s Bee stock. Good old bee. I’m heavily leaning towards using Bee decks for whatever magic I may or may not be doing in the upcoming year(school year). Maybe I should focus on academics. Haha. Shrugs. Good deck. Be aware that shelf life is considerably shorter if you’re focusing on cleanliness. Though its more durable than say a bicycle deck, bicycle is much more expendable. Wynn seems to be the type of card you’d use for say,,,a more reserved setting perhaps. Or for XCM and cardistry and that stuff. Yea can’t forget about that. The clumping factor of these cards will boost that quite well. I’d go for DnD’s vertigo hackysack with these. Fun . Stuff .
