While not quite as smooth as the Ace cards by Cartamundi, these still have a smooth feel to them. The flex and thickness is also better than the Ace’s but the feel is still a little soft. Travel on my speedcloth was a little higher than I’d like. The reds are a bit on the darker side. I do like the design on the backs and faces. Priced at $14.95 they are still a good value for the money.
