I am getting a bit bored by the feel of regular USPCC cards and wonder if you guys have any tips for other brands. I have already bought a LPCC deck to try so could you recommend any other brands than those two

You heard it here first: EPCC is soon releasing a deck called the Royal Zen V2 – Black edition.
Although not officially announced yet, we’re allowed to share this little bit of info, and a photo 🙂 It has a master finish and an incredible new soft-touch tuck box.
If you’re bored with USPCC, this is definitely something you HAVE TO TRY when they are released!

I’ve heard LPCC and EPCC feel the same cause they are printed in the same factory also will this deck be on kickstarter

On a side note: myself and the ones who have handled these can confirm: this is something NEW from EPCC. Not like ANY other deck they’ve ever released before :O

Try Cartamundi Cards, the ones from Belgium, like the Copag 310 for example. Super soft cards, but kinda thick. Still very nice all around and different from USPCC

It’s always nice to go back and acquire vintage decks of companies that have fallen victim to USPCC. Buy a few decks from before they got bought you. There is a lot of variety in the finish and stock: Hoyle, Fournier, Arrco, Waddington.
Other brands that I know about: Paitnik, Cartamundi, Gemaco, Copag, Liberty Playing Cards, Royal (Taiwan)

Try the Taiwan Playing Card Company. I’ve only got the C9 (or is CP) Souls by BombMagic, but they feel similar to Copag’s b9 linen. Plus this deck is custom and fully marked!

Recently, I’ve been a big fan of Catamundi’s new B9 linen finish as well as their thick, yet remarkably soft stock. If you haven’t felt these yet I’d advise picking up a deck of “Sea Green Keepers” from Ellusionist- they run for only about $4.

I confirm what Jacob said: The Belgium Cartamundi has a superb finish. Try The Keeper deck.
