GPS Deck by Steve Gore

The GPS Deck (aka Regatta) is a marked deck of cards created by magician Steve Gore.
Using the simple lined background design of the deck you are able to locate any card in the shuffled deck instantly. It will take a bit of time to get used to the system, but it is fairly easy to do once you get the hang of it. The design is so clever that no one will every be able to figure out the markings no matter how hard they look. The markings are only small though so if you have eyesight issues you may struggle to see them.
The deck is printed by the US Playing Card Company so the quality is really nice and they handle as you would expect from the USPCC.
The system is explained on the back of one of the ‘extra’ cards in the pack. The writing is very small so if you struggle reading then you will need your glasses on to read it. There are also video instructions available too which are accessible via the supplied URL. At the time of writing there are 6 videos available for your viewing including a conversation with mentalist Peter Turner discussing the deck and its possibilities. A couple of effects are taught but to be honest there are literally loads of effects possible if you give it a little thought.
If marked decks are your thing then get your hands on the GPS deck, you won’t regret it!
