I don’t believe there are 20 flex modianos. I’ve handled many/most/all modianos except for platinums, and none of them have been flexier than KEMs, in my unmeasured opinion.

I just ran a non-scientific test yesterday: Desjgn Baroque V1 (Modiano) vs Tobago Casino (Cartamundi BE), both top tier in my book.

Eyes closed, I couldn't pick them apart from a texture perspective. Yes, one is bridge, the other poker, but the test was just the feeling of the fingers on the surface, sizing had no bearing on the results. They felt exactly the same, or at least close enough I couldn't pick one from the other.

From a flex perspective though, and that surprised me, I could pick the one that felt more flexible to me every time I performed the test. 100% accuracy. And the shocker: Desjgn Baroque was picked every single time.

The test was different than Dix's: I was just trying to peek the cards, as if I was playing, eyes closed obviously. I was very surprised nonetheless.

Maybe that comparison is just moot as some of those decks were printed defectively. Still, that goes to show the ModiaNO stock flex used by Desjgn. It is a shame that Italian company did shady business with Jason because that stock of theirs is FIRE in my perspective!

Oh, one more thing, those Baroques have a much brighter white than the Tobagos, which is a good thing to me.

You tried Angel Aristo Club before? Just a tiny bit more flex and smoother. It's so fast and feels natural shuffling. Not by much, but noticable. Overall I would probably pick Desjgn Modiano stock though.

For a closer comparison to the poker size Cartamundi cards, I believe the poker size Desjgn Classic Victorian V2 cards (orange/purple/green/brown) are also on Modiano stock. Some of my favorite cards.

Yes. I had a set of those, once upon a time. My first favorite cards
