Talking Best Card Sleeves for Yu-Gi-Oh

This is just to settle a question that's been boggling my mind for quite some time now. I would really appreciate people's opinions about which brand of card sleeves has worked the best for Yu-Gi-Oh players. I'm thinking of changing my sleeves but I'm not sure what to change to. I've heard that Ultra Pro is the most popular but Max Protection makes good quality sleeves.

I'd really like some second opinions about this.

Probably better posted in the yugioh Q&A section, but I used Dragon Shield Sleeves inside ultra pro for good protection and pretty frame designs.

Dragon sleeves are smaller and fit the cards perfectly, but they are cut somewhat unevenly, so I placed them upside down into Ultra Pros to really protect the cards. Hope that helps.

I prefer players choice or kmc white, gold, or silver.

Max sleeves suck hardcore they peel and shuffle like ****, ultra pro seem to last longer before I have to change sleeves, I just don't like the feel of ultra pro that much but I will use ultra pro pink, yellow, or light blue.

I kinda wanted some of those sleeves.

Do they shuffle well?

Do they peel bad like other sleeves with pictures on them tend to?

that, my friends, is the worst offender with all sleeves. I don't think you can avoid it unless you play with cloth gloves...

Question

I don't want to threadjack, but what about "Player's Choice"? I've always been a huge fan of Ultra Pro, but I like how the PC ones are in packs of 60. Enough for a side deck.

i have max sleeves T_T, i didn't know about the quality of sleeves until joining pojo :P. They have a cool picture but that's all there is to it, i wanna get new ones, but me being an idiot deciding "hey, why not buy more sleeves, that way when the first pack is ruined i have another one saved up, whoo i'm super smart ^_^". that store i went to at the time only had max sleeves anyway, so i either have to buy online, or find another store . . . when all the max ones die off. eh, shouldn't be too long right?

I use blue or white ultra pro sleeves. I don't like the feel of them, but they last much longer. All of the sleeves I have bought with designs have peeled.

Ultra Pro.

In all other cases, use duct tape.

Dragon Shield Mini's are the way to go. I swear mine will never wear out...

All sleeves get dirty, so plan on replacing ever the best sleeves at least every 2 months.
