Double Sleeving with regular Dragon Shields?

Gear forum

I've heard that Dragon Shield Mattes are among the best sleeves, but what about the regular Dragon Shields? Many of my friends prefer to use the former ones to double sleeve, but I have a box of the regular ones.

I have an Ultimate Guard Deck Case 80+, Forest Edition. Can a full 75-card double sleeved deck (Main and Side), using Regular Dragon Shields, fit in there? Or should I get other sleeves (Matte DSs or another brand)?

Pretty sure they're the same thickness. They should be able to fit in any standard sized box that can hold 80+ cards.

You can double sleeve both with no real issues. I've bought various perfect fits for around 10 different decks so far, all using OG/Matte shields. No problems. I don't like the OGs much though because they tend to get sticky and grimy fast.

I find the tops of them tend to stretch and warp as well, compromising that double sleeved seal to some extent. Ultra Pro recently came out with some matte sleeves called "Eclipse" that I really like. TCC reviewed them as the current best sleeves on the market, and I tend to agree. Sadly, unlike Dragon Shield, they only come in packs of 80, not ~105.

Looks like they are in fact selling them in 100 ct. now.

I don't like the cloudiness of the Eclipse sleeves and find they get grimy much faster than matte sleeves. I've also seen durability and bent corners among Eclipse sleeves much more often than with Dragon Shield Mattes.
