Which is the best playing card, air-cushioned plastic-coated paper or all-plastic with papery feel? I've developed sort of an OCD for the feel of shuffling my new all plastic poker cards, and I wanted to hear from you all about your preferences. RSVP.

My favorite is the paper made COPAG playing cards.

I still have about two boxes of Bycicle cards my parents bought. Some Hoyle, too. I've no idea what they're made of. Also two packs of cards from Fremont, because I liked the design on the back ($0.99 each at the gift shop)

I prefer the plastic, but don't care for the price. Paper is great right out of the box, but they don't last a night without creases or bends.

Plastic by far. I dont know why casinos dont use them on table games.



They buy paper pack in the thousands for pennies, even in bulk plastic ones can cost $3 a deck with custom printing

Because of price, and because they get changed out every several hours anyway.
I hate the really cheap paper ones, with the gloss finish, and prefer the linen finish.
For casino work, the linen finish card stock is very fine, the gloss finish less so.
For Bridge, I prefer the plastic cards.
