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.

I am used to standard Copag 310 decks. I have heard these thick cards are not favoured for cardistry, which could explain why the new slim-line cards have been made.

I think Copag 310s are fine as they are. Despite being thick, they handle beautifully, with a soft buttery feel, and they flex well, so are great for double lifts.

I was still interested to try the new slim version, which is meant to be several cards thinner. And it is. The packet itself is visibly smaller, otherwise looks the same.

The beautiful texture and feel of the originals has gone, replaced with ordinary feel. Not a great problem, except the los of the great feel of the originals. But the problem I had was dribbling the cards, after one face-down dribble, they had warped. Dribbling face up was difficult.

After a minute's use, I put the deck in the fridge, and took it out hours later. The cards were then closer to being flat, but after one more face down dribble they were warped again. Rinse, lather, repeat, every time the same effect.

I have tried buckling the deck hard, but it always ends up bowed the original way.

I would rank these cards as 1, just good enough for a self-working trick. I give them 2 here as it could be argued that the thinner cards are better stock, just more volatile, and just don't work in my climate (oz). But since I have no trouble with the old standard cards here, I can't be more positive with the review.

My rating is a personal experience only. If you live in a different climate or get a better copy, they may be fine for you. Would suggest you ignore my rating, which is arbitrary, and try the deck for yourself... especially if you are used to the previous model Copags.

Underrated worker deck Report this review

I'm not sure why the bad reviews but I thought I would offer a contrasting experience. I have been using and abusing my copag 310 slimlines for a good few days now. They faro well, they shuffle well. The edges are soft and supple right out of the box. They make pinkie counting easier (subjective) than regular bicycle stock cards. They have stayed relatively warp-free despite a lot of shuffling. Also I should add they are much less affected by humidity than anything by USPCC in terms of warping.

The con is they don't fan as easily anymore and clump a bit, but that's true of any cards I have used after a while. When they were new they fanned beautifully. It might be my technique too as I am not great at fanning at the best of times.

This isn't a plus or a minus but they have a very different feel than USPCC cards. Almost leathery. It's hard to describe but is definitely interesting.

Overall when you consider the price definitely a great deck.

Bad quality Report this review

I was very disappointed when I received the cards.I thought it was the best cards. but not because the fan doesn’t work, faro shuffle doesn’t work, and the color, pipes and figures are not nice. You can also see the dark glue throughout the back and face layers.
