I've searched the forums and found many interesting threads about lotions and hand moisturisers. Sortkwik is very good for me, but will not talk about that here.

However it seems to me that some decks are more sensitive to the dry hands problem, I mean they make it worse.

For example, in my limited 6 months experience, I feel Phoenix decks are very difficult to handle when my hands are dry, instead Tally Ho decks are a little better. Bikes are similar to Tally Ho, maybe a tad worse. Bee are similar to Phoenix (as far as gripping is concerned).

I also noticed that using a new deck is better, while older, dirty or even sticky cards are not workable at all with dry hands.

Since I was surprised many times by this community, maybe you had similar experiences and want to share, or maybe you found a dry-proof high-grip brand of cards Smile

So, do you think there are decks more usable with dry hands compared to others? Maybe do you feel they help with the finger grip?

I don't plan to center deal anytime soon, but I would like to hear from you. Maybe this thread will help those with dry hands when they cannot properly moist their skin.

What about plastic cards? Are they better for dry hands? Would you recommend any?


P.S. please avoid discussing any hand cream/lotion, there are plenty of threads and a nice wrap-up at the following link

Let's keep it about deck brands and gripping

Regarding my question above, I tried Bicycle plastic cards but they are really terrible, difficult to handle, stick with each other...

Please share your experiences with different brands of card as far as gripping.

Yeah, thank you, I may let this thread die and after a while opening another one.
