Are you a card thrower? Want to improve dramatically? Want to become a card thrower?
The next evolution of the ultimate throwing card is here - introducing Banshees! This incredible deck has been re-engineered from the ground up for maximum speed, durability, precision, and impact. The Banshees not only achieves consistent and effortless card flight, it also produces a louder sonic scream like never before.
Precision crafted with heavier reinforced material, Banshees makes throwing a standard playing card obsolete. As any experienced card thrower knows, the moment a cardboard playing card bends, it loses its aerodynamic shape and, ultimately, its precision. Banshees retains its sleek, low-profile aerodynamic shape, even under the harshest of conditions. Although there are sleight variations with each card, it never bends nor buckles, so you retain maximum precision and piercing power after heavy usage.
As your Banshees slices through air, the newly designed card produces waves of sound stronger than ever before. To the layman, the sonic whistle gives the illusion of added intensity and velocity. To the experienced card thrower, it's just straight up cool.
Maximum Speed. Maximum Precision. Maximum Impact. It's the cutting-edge of card throwing. Let your cards take flight like never before with Banshees.

The Original Edition comes in a thin Plastic Card Stock with an Imitation Cushioned Finish, making them excellent for Long-Distance Spring and Fan Flourish Training. Their plastic nature also means that they bounce back to their original form without any "reverse bending" after putting them under pressure (eg: after a pressure fan)
They are very light, making it difficult for an Amateur like myself to predict where they are going to go with Aerial Tricks, but the fact that you can get some noise out of them if they are spinning fast enough encourages me to put more effort into getting extra spin out of each move. I feel like I have improved a heap since I got them... yesterday afternoon
For the 2nd Edition (thicker stock), each cutout is a little bit raised which means they will make more noise than their counterparts while spinning. This also means they like to clump together and are excellent for practicing packet cuts. These raised cutouts also means they do not fan very well and they have a habit of behaving oddly during springs - a packet might clump up and go flinging out the side for example.
They are noticibly heavier than a regular paper deck and you can certainly get some appreciable distance when throwing them.
I did notice with the Second Edition that some of the cutouts still had the plastic inside their holes and removing them was very difficult until I got home and was able to find my craft Scalpel.
