I've been playing cards for many years and decided to switch from Bicycles and Bees to cellulose acetate plastic; ie: KEM and COPAG. I purchased one set each of KEM arrows and COPAGs; both are poker (regular) size. I received the cards a few weeks ago and have had some time to play with my poker group and gauge opinions. Interestingly, our group voted 50/50 KEM vs COPAG. What I can offer is specific differences between the cards which you may find helpful. I've also included the specs of a Bicycle deck for comparison.

KEM
.014" card thickness
.700" deck thickness, w/o jokers
2.5"W x 3.5"L deck dimensions
8.75" surface area

COPAG
.012" card thickness
.625" deck thickness, w/o jokers
2.483"W x 3.465"L deck dimensions
8.604" surface area

BICYCLE
.011" card thickness
.580" deck thickness, w/o jokers
2.48"W x 3.475"L deck dimensions
8.618" surface area

As you can see, the KEM deck is almost 12% thicker and 1.7% larger surface area than the COPAG deck, and 21% thicker and 1.6% larger surface area than a Bicycle deck. 21% thicker than a Bicycle deck is a big deal if you're a smaller-handed dealer!

Here are my personal thoughts;

The COPAG's feel slightly better when shuffling as the deck is slightly smaller, less weight and easier to handle for short fingers (like mine). The KEM's numbering is smaller and much less blocky, and appear more like a traditional deck. The COPAG's have larger (not Jumbo) lettering which is blocky. Both decks have visually pleasing and symmetrical backing designs. Both slide easily on felt and are very easy to riffle/shuffle. The COPAG's have an attractive blue border around each face card picture, unlike the KEM's black border.

I've been playing cards for a while now (poker, cribbage, pinochle, etc.) and feel as though I've tried just about every style and quality of playing card out there. The fact that these are 100% cellulose acetate makes them unquestionably one of the best decks you can purchase. I'm glad I own them and got a great deal here on Amazon. I do question however the claim that KEM's are in some way superior to Copag's. The KEM's may be a slightly higher grade of plastic, but in the end it really comes down to the look and feel of the card. If I polled the "regulars" I play with I'm quite certain I'd find a 50/50 split as to what brand of card they prefer. Both brands will give you long life with plenty of play. I seriously don't think you can wrong with either.

If you play only once or twice a week KEM cards quickly become well worth the money. Instead of buying a new deck every time you play or always worrying about everyone knowing what you have based on how a couple cards in the deck are bent it's best to just buy these now and never have to worry about buying another pack. These come in handy quick if you have friends who dont know how to shuffle properly and would destroy a normal deck after only a few turns, they cards dont bend, are of great quality and with two decks to a pack your 20 bucks will go a very long ways.

Well Worth It

If you play any card games on a regular enough basis to even think about buying these cards DO IT! They are in expensive, feel great when shuffling and dealing, and they stand up to destruction way better than any brand of paper cards ever could (i.e. Bicycle or Bee). Any liquid can be dried off with a paper towel and immediately put back into play. This was even true when a friend threw up on them during a drinking game, rinsed them off in the sink dried them and back in business. However the cards that fell victim to stomach acid did fade slightly in color.

I bought these and a set of Copags. Both are great, but I like these better - worth the small price difference.
For our neighborhood game folks can now "bend and peek" without worrying about ruining the cards. Dealing is a breeze because the cards glide across the felt.
Two games in and they have held up nicely.

This is the first pack of "high end" cards I've purchased and I can honestly say, they shuffle like butter. So smooth, don't stick, no need to bend and shuffle them the old fashion way. They look great and they work in my electric card shuffle. My only complaint is they don't come in card boxes.. they come loose, both packs in a cheap plastic holder that doesn't lock, so if it flips over, they go all over the place and the two decks top most cards tend to mix together easily in storage. Other then that, they're great.
