    Ultra Pro Or BCW

    I was looking to buy some 9 pocket pages and these two seem to be the major brands with prices for bcw slightly cheaper. Which do you like better ? Or is there another brand that's good ?

    With the 9 pocket pages, I have always used Ultra Pro. Any other supplies (sleeves, toploaders, screw downs, etc) I am fine with either of the two brands. The Ultra Pro pages seem to have just a better feel to them out of the box, plus I like the silver sticker, it allows for easier organizing/orientation when putting albums together.

    I have been using BCW pages for a while now, and they have the same clarity and thickness of the regular (Silver) Ultra-Pro pages.

    There are three different Ultra-Pro pages: Platinum (by far the best, but expensive), Silver (the norm in card shops and online) and the cheap ones you find in ten-page packs at Wal-Mart.

    I should clarify my statement regarding Ultra Pro by stating that I am referring to the Platinum grade pages.

    Thanks for the info. LCS has the platinum for $18/box of 100 so I think I'll go with those.

    I guess this really didn't need to be a poll but it'll be interesting to see how people vote.

    The quality should be fine for storage on anything made by Ultra Pro or BCW, the Platinum is better for thumbing through, etc...they seem just about as good as you can get, so I go with them.

    I prefer UltraPro (and voted as such), but for the most part, it makes no significant difference to me. But I'm also a boxer more than a pager anyway, haha.
