I bought these cards because I kept bending or kinking my cards as I tried to learn card handling. As described, these cards indeed do feel papery and look like bright paper, not plastic.

However the cards are slipperier than expected. If you hold it tightly by the top and bottom of the deck on one edge the middle of the deck is liable to go flying out of your hand and onto the floor. The good thing is that they are sturdy enough to handle the abuse, but it's still annoying.

As for the sturdiness, I once caught a card (that had slipped out of my hand) and bent it pretty severely. It straighten itself out and looked good as new. I've never tried to crease any of these cards, so can't say how they could stand up to that. (I wouldn't want to try it at the price anyway.)

I'm sure with proper card handling and care these "slip-ups" could be minimized or eliminated, but it's still something to think about if you are familiar with the feel of standard playing cards.

One very nice point was there was no break in period for the cards. I could riffle and waterfall shuffle the cards with ease on the first cut, so that was very nice. Of course, the second time I tried it the cards went flying everywhere, but I was alone at the time.

The card carrying case is made out of textured black cardboard, not plastic as it looks on the preview. It comes with a thick paper label that wraps around the box that you'll want to keep as it is what keeps it from sliding open in a pocket or loose bag. Without something like a rubber band or this slipcover the cards could push the lid off as you take it out.

On aesthetics: The design is okay, but the white strips on the back isn't my favourite.

Excellent quality cards. I needed two decks to play classic Canasta.
I chose Bicycle cards because of their consistently high quality.
I would recommend them to serious card players.

Nice Nov. 19 2010
By Jeremy Allen - Published on Amazon.com

Seems like every couple of months I try to buy a new deck of plastic cards. Its turned into a bit of a collection thing for me I guess. Everyone is familiar with regular Bicycle playing cards, so I was really curious to see how these plastic ones would be.

Played a poker game last night with them and I am thoroughly pleased. I like the individual cases they come in. Most plastic cards come with one plastic case that divides the two decks, I rather enjoy the mix up. The colors are rich, the pattern on the back of the cards is really nice. And the quality of the card is nice, worked really well for our poker game.

Only thing that remains for me is to see how they hold up over time. Like I said I have only used them once so we will see. But for now, 5 stars.

Great feel and Quality Jan. 30 2014
By Hellvansing the review slayer - Published on Amazon.com

Lasted about 8 months in a Weekly Home game. We usually play for about 10 hours every Friday night, 2 full tables and we used these for about 8 months before any noticeable nicks, bends, cracks etc started to show. They survived beer, soda, food fingers and Extreme card benders with no problem. Easily wiped down and shuffle very well. Highly recommend.

Nice paper like feel, BUT does NOT come with plastic case March 20 2015
By Trevor Vampran - Published on Amazon.com

The cards have a great feel to them. They don't feel like cheap plastic. Very disappointed that the decks only came with the black cardboard cases. Even though it says in the description Plastic cases also come with it. Now I've got to figure out a way to store them when I take them camping, as I don't want to ruin the "pretty" paper case.
Good sturdy cards, if a bit slippery Nov. 18 2012

All and all, these seem like sturdy playing cards. Some other reviews say that the cards can be chipped if thrown. I've yet to throw them so cannot comment.

Fantastic cards June 2 2014

No complaints, a bit smooth for tricks but are fantastic for card games. It'll take a little to get used to shuffling, but once you do, it's fantastic.
