Maybe that's an old model number. But by the 2800 decks I mean the Titanium decks with the heart and Spade on the boxesHow old are the decks you're talking about.... I have a fresh set of "heart & spade box art" decks.... they BOTH have "2818" on 'em.
I don't recall ever seeing a deck with "2800"

Linen finish front & back.... blindfolded you couldn't tell 'em apart from a Bike Prestige to save your life.

& like I said.... those say "2818" on 'em & you couldn't tell the difference between those & a Bike Prestige if your life depended on it.Maybe that's an old model number. But by the 2800 decks I mean the Titanium decks with the heart and Spade on the boxes
I know, but it was simply to demonstrate why people refer to them as 2800. That is how they are marketed.Again... open that close-up & tell me what it says on the Ace of Spades.
In what is likely a pointless exercise & complete waste of money, just for laughs I just ordered a couple sets of those. Although, I must admit to preferring the back design of 'em.Fair enough. I wasn't aware of any differences between the 2818 Fournier cards and the special edition 2818 Fournier's as pictured by @JMC9389 . Thanks for pointing out the difference in the font, as I was thinking of getting the red/blue/green/orange 2818's from eBay thinking they would be just like the WSOP, WPT, and new EPT decks. That would have been a disappointment.
Wow, I don't have any explanation of why my 2800s with the same box have different fonts than yours. Mine are bold just like the WSOPs.The last sentence is where I disagree. These are the different Fournier decks that I have:

There's definitely a difference in font with the WSOP decks.
@Dix I also respectfully disagree with you. In terms of your metrics, yes, the Fournier cards are the same thickness, flex, etc. However, there's a.definite difference between the finish of the 2800 decks (Titanium Edition with heart and Spade box art) and the 2818 line. The backs of the 2818 line are definitely smoother to the touch than the 2800 line that has a linen/somewhat textured touch to the card backs.
The same goes for the bridge size decks as @Jake14mw alluded to. There's definitely a difference between the 2826 Congress backs that have a smoother finish and the FDL back decks that I own that have a definitely more textured finish.
BICYCLE PRESTIGE? They are bridge or poker size? I didn't see the size on the website.The great thing about Modianos is that when you buy Modianos, you know what you are getting. The finish is the same, the faces are the same. I stay away from Modianos because of their service problems they had here though. Cartamundi is the opposite. They make so many cards under the Cartamundi name, that you have no idea what a Cartamundi card is.
Given your criteria you gave, if you are looking for jumbo index, I have the answer for you, go no futher - https://www.playingcards.net/BICYCL...NDY-PLASTIC-POKER-JUMBO-INDEX-SET_p_1672.html . Similar feel to Modianos, similar flex, great price! Just know they don't come in boxes, but for that price, buy a nice wooden box for them!
Even though I've never cared for copags, that box makes me want some. I guess I'm a sucker.
Copag WSOP & EPT
As a general rule, I'm not real big on getting "Special Edition" type decks. & here's a good example of why.
What someone does as a "one off" I'm not going to make myself crazy trying to keep up with. Copag (round 1), USPCC (as Kem/Bicycle/Fournier), Modiano, & Copag (round 2) have all been the "official" cards of the WSOP at some point or another & all have had "special edition" runs of "WSOP" cards. Throw the WPT & EPT in that mix & there's probably been dozens (plural) of "special edition" type decks made in that category.
Sometimes they're different, sometimes not.... which is why I'm not going to make myself crazy, as a general rule, in trying to keep track of (as I'm about to demonstrate)... if you want to do it, knock yourself out.
As I stated in a earlier post, a Fournier "2818" is a Fournier 2818 & there's no difference between 'em (minor production run changes aside). Just because a special WSOP or WPT edition may have been done with a different finish is not something I'm going get crazy about.
Which brings us to our next contestants.... Copag's WSOP(2016) & EPT(current) editions.
Are these the same as Copag's other decks?.... Yes & no.... & by that, I mean BOTH.... Yes AND no.
In the "yes" category are the EPT decks. Exact same stuff as the other Belgium-made Copags I just reviewed above. Right down to the yellow-ish red ink used on the faces.
In the "no".... or to be more accurate, the "not exactly" department, are the 2016 WSOP-Main Event decks.
The finish IS more akin to their TXHE decks, Just done on the thinner standard stock. Also, the back design was obviously "made for TV" with the bold WSOP logo vs the traditional "poker chip" logo on the non-ME decks.
I'm not bothering putting the specs up in the database on these as the only thing unique about either is the finish on the WSOP decks.
Both of these are available at Pokerstore.nl if you're so inclined.
The Elements line is no longer produced, & hasn't been for over a decade I believe. But, the same stock is currently used for Guild.
If it's color variety you want, the "Texas Poker" line comes in 10 colors, & is the same stock the original Desjgn decks were done with.
Red, Light/Dark Blue, Light/Dark Green, Black, Gray, Purple, Orange & Brown.
Can be found on eBay & Amazon. This Amazon seller has all colors except Black & Brown.
That is interesting information. I've been planning on purchasing a set of these and was also going off of the assumption they fell into the "all modiano except platinum and elements" category. @Dix Is that correct, or do they belong on a different row? Are Texas Poker Cel or PVC?BTW, the database I’m guessing lumps these Modiano Texas Poker decks into the “all modiano” rating, as well as original Desjgn, calling them cellulose acetate. But the Modiano website says these cards are made from PVC. They certainly smell like it. Should that be updated in the database or am I confusing something?
