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.

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.

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

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.

I've been playing cards ever since I could remember,and cards of choice have always been Bicycle.Not only are the Duraflex a beautiful set but they are very well made and very affordable.There's always one player at the table that never fails to bend corners ,spill drinks or even food stains a regular deck of paper playing cards,Hey sometimes your that player.These cards will withstand that and then some and can easily be wiped down with a wet cloth.Buy These Cards!!!

Not the best March 17 2010
By A. Ally - Published on Amazon.com
This was my first set of plastic playing cards and they were ok at first but over time the paint on the cards starts to ware off. At $8 a deck I can't recommend these playing cards when there are better cards on the market.
