Mechanic Deck VR2 Review

If you have the first version of the Mechanic Deck then you know the basics. This one has better animation, fully marked backs, and a joker set that can work with Mechanic's Grinder Coins.

If you're new to Mechanic Industries deck, this is a really cool deck that you may want to check out. When you riffle it the backs have a "gear turning" animation that looks really cool. However, you need to keep each suit in numerical order for the animation to run smoothly. This limits the usefulness of the deck - the coolest feature means you can't really shuffle the deck.

The Jokers can also be used for a "pull the design off the card" effect, but you'll need Mechanic's Grinder Coins (sold separately). The good news is that these are really well-made coins and will fit well into any coin routine.

This is also a marked deck that's not too hard to read. You can download a PDF Tutorial file and quickly get up to speed. The visibility of the marks lies in the middle range - easier than tiny markings but those with weaker eyesight might have some difficulty.

Overall the finish is smooth, slippery, and handles sweetly. I own both versions of this deck and love them both, but having to keep them in order keeps them from being my go-to deck.

Manufacturer's Description:

Upgrade fitted!

After the success of the blockbuster Mechanic Deck, we decided to take it in for a bit of a service. We didn't want to just give you guys a slightly tweaked 'colour' version, so we completely overhauled the deck with a new design and new custom upgrades making this the best Mechanic's deck yet! The back design looks awesome in spreads and fans thanks to the pop rivets and stepped border, adding interest and variety. The same revolutionary animation system has been applied, but with a couple of extra additions making the animation even clearer, and easier to read as a marked deck.

More contrast in the back design means the animation stands out even more! We've encased the chain in it's own guard and added even more cogs to really bring the flipbook animation to life. The deck still uses the same 13 back system but with some additional subtleties. Riffle through the deck and take it for a spin!

Doubles up as a marked deck

The upgraded animation system now makes the backs even easier to read. We have created two points of reference in the cog rotation making the card value a piece of cake to spot. Now you can divine suit as well as value thanks to a clever little marker that hides in plain view. Impossible for your spectator to see, but noticeable at a mere glance for you, making this one of the easiest to read and affordable marked decks available. FREE PDF instructions are included on how to use it as a marked deck.
