In all seriousness, coolio, do the hyper mats hold up better than the normal KMC matte sleeves? After about 5 FNMs, I can easily tell the difference from a new sleeve. It seems the surface wears smooth, giving it almost a polished look. The sleeve's integrity is still there, no rips or anything, but they are now theoretically marked. Do the hyper mats resist this better?


way better.. i have my legacy elves going on 50+ matches... they went into those hyper mattes before gp dc.. and last saw play at the invi in charlotte.. still same set.. only like 2 popped..

I'm using the KMC Hyper with the KMC True Fits. Simply awesome.

I have about 1,000 Legacy cards that I had in Dragon Shield but when you have that many sleeved up there was inconsistency in the sleeve length that was noticeable when I decided to add new cards to one of my legacy decks or simply build another one. I haven't seen that inconsistency in the KMC Hyper and I'm happy that I've double sleeved my expensive cards that I love playing with.

Which sleeves are these? (wondering if you can provide a link so I can order identical ones). I thought I had ordered some KMC's back when our old school was in business but I got some other non-KMC sleeve.

So KMC + KMC ultra fits are going to be less thick than Ultrapro + KMC Ultra fits?

Kmc is a thicker sleeve all around. That is why they last so long.
