Iíve got over 100 of these in circulation and havenít noticed anything negative - scratches, film, demonic messages or crop circles. I recall reports of the film and scratches years ago, but Iíve never experienced it or worried about it.

I've seen the film, but only on sleeves which had a paper outer and a glued in plastic inner.   Most believe that it is the glue that creates the film (and I do too).   MOFI sleeves don't use glue, the rice paper stiffener is sealed inside by the same heat that cuts the edges of the sleeve.

If you have not already place the order, please remove my two.... if it's placed no problem, I'll donate them to someone here.  I did not read the post clearly enough. I don't like rice paper or any other kind of paper sleeves, I like using the plastic sleeves with paper sandwiched inside for stiffness.

That's what these are.   The paper sandwiched inside is rice paper.   I have not placed the order yet, but I think these are in fact what you want.   Here is the link...

These are the same ones that you took three packs of last year (see reply #8 in this thread).   Let me know either way.   We have plenty of takers, so your decision won't affect the deal for anyone else.

lol   those will be fine, sorry for my confusion.... I'll blame it on pain and drugs. When I re-read the post I thought it was for plain rice paper sleeves. I will take two then.  Again, sorry for the confusion and my misunderstanding.

Hey Mark

while moving things around the listening room, I discovered an unopened pack of MoFi sleeves.  So if you do not need my two pack order to get the discount,  I want to cancel it.  If you end up short one or two come time to order, I would be glad to help the group get the discount.  I expect I'll be able to use them at some point.

thanks

I've been using these for about 6 months now, slowly changing over from paper to MoFi sleeves as I play a record. I have to say they work extremely well.  I've noticed less static, no more cringing when taking disc in and out of dirty paper inner, and has kept my printed paper inners in better shape now that the disc isn't riding in them.  A great buy no matter how you slice it

That closely echos my own experience.   I'm cheap, I don't spend the extra money for no reason.

Got a Jimi Hendrix Axis: Bold as Love from Amazon for $10. It came in a Quality Record Pressing sleeve exactly like the Mofi sleeves. Wish more new records came like this. Pleasant surprise.

They use their own sleeves for the stuff they press.   It should be a good sounding record too.   How did you swing that price?   Was it on sale or did you have a coupon?

A friend of mine has slickdeals alerts, he sent me a link for a Rob Zombie record. While I was in there I poked around for any other cheap records. Looks like they still have some and yes the sound quality is top notch. Great album if you like faders and such, sound comes from all over.

Okay, this buy is closed, but I'm sure we will do it again in the future.   I will PM people with totals and my Paypal shortly.   Thanks.

The order is placed.   I also ordered a 100 pack of 10" outer sleeves which were on clearance.   I won't use that many, so if you can use any of these let me know and I will include what you need with your inner sleeves.
