There's an amusing negative reference of Golden on Amazon from shortly after it came out, saying that only a 'masochist' would want to use Golden as the card stock was too thick, and they predicted it would quickly go out of print as it was impossible to riffle-shuffle.

Touchstone LE is closer to 'normal' card stock, but there's no need to worry about damaging the card stock I think. As it's a very unusual printing surface, I was a bit worried that it might chip or scratch during use, but my own copy still looks fine. When the Kunati edition comes out, I will probably put away my LE with my other 'collection' decks and use the Kunati one - simply because the LE isn't replaceable though, not because it's particularly fragile.
