COPAG 310 SlimLine
COPAG 310® was developed closely together with expert players, cardists and magicians for over two years. The exclusive TRUE LINEN B9 FINISH of the COPAG 310® deck ensures supreme handling and longevity and is developed specifically for the pursuit of the perfect sleight and the ultimate flourish. This finish is the result of intense R&D and more than 300 prototypes, tried and tested. This to create a deck ready to use straight out of the box. The soft but springy nature of the cards, and the smoothness of handling, lie in a carefully constructed balance between stock, coating, linen finish and cutting. Tailored to your needs.
Since the first decks printed with the TRUE LINEN B9 FINISH ran off our production line, cardists, magicians and collectors have been telling us that our cards are just slightly too thick. At Cartamundi, quality is the core value, and we believe that acting upon community feedback is key to taking our products to the next level. This is also why we've been doing further R&D for the past year to create an improved paper stock that meets community expectations. The result is our proprietary SlimLine stock. While this new stock is significantly thinner (5-6 card to be more exact), we've made sure not to compromise the snappy feel and soft touch that distinguished the formerly used Superlux stock. With the release of this new stock across standard and custom decks, we believe we've come one step closer in our never-ending pursuit of mastery.
Great standard deck option for people like me who don't like the traditional Bicycle design. Premium feel reflects the slightly higher price.
Out of the tuck case, these things are nice and soft. They just feel more natural in my hands. Like many thin crushed decks, these can fold a bit easier (but I just fold them back if that happens ha). For the novice cardist, it's likely you'll fold a card or two a bit sooner so buy a few extra decks (they're cheap and high quality!). Definitely gonna get a few more to add to my collection for use.
I'd say they are slightly better than Bicycle's, but I find them a little "slippery" which makes Bicycle's better for double lifts. Overall, they are excellent cards, and worth checking out to see if you like they handle compared to Bicycles. They already come with a double backer, and combined with the very cheap gaff deck, you have a great set.
They feel like a crushed retail stock USPCC deck but with slightly less snap. If you want a crushed deck at a discount, check these out!
Copag 310 SlimLine is a very affordable deck, that has a nice back design and it handles well. The card stock is great, they aren't stiff (which I like very much) and the tuck case is quite sturdy. I got both the red and blue decks, to make a set and I'm very pleased with them! The only negative thing is that the cards remained a bit bent after playing with them for a little while, but overall, I'm very happy with this purchase and I do recommend these to everyone!
I've always been a uspcc snob but these are just as nice or better in my opinion
