Hey what are the best comic bags for the new cgc cases? I had used the ones with the sticky strip on the back previously but I don't thing they fit the new ones too well. What do you guys use?

I use the 2nd size on this page (8 13/16" width):

The sticky strip is on the back of the bag, not the flap, so it's easier to get slabs in and out.

There's "extra" (overhang) for regular slabs, but I don't mind because I also use Mylite2 for some slabs and it has extra on the edges, too.

Are you saying the Hot Flips bags with the sticky strip don't fit well?

The Hot Flips ones fit fine.

I don't like the sticky strip on the flap.

 

When I take a slab out to scan, it's annoying to try to get the slab back in the bag with the sticky strip sticking to the slab all the way down.

The sticky strip on the back of the bag is my preference. (It's probably not an issue unless you're scanning hundreds of slabs.)

Does anyone make a Mylar sleeve for the new case yet?

Ordered these a few weeks ago and they work perfectly

How tight do these fit? I have old style slabs in bags that fit snug and you can hardly tell they are in bags. I want to bag the newer slab style but want a snug fitting bag.

Do these have a flap to close in the slab and is it a snug or loose fit? 

Also, these fit the new style thicker slabs?

They have Flaps to close with tape. Slabs fit with Plenty of room, snug them up when you tape the flap over. There is excess room on sides of bags.

I am looking for the super shiny/glossy bags for graded comics.  Are those the Mylar ones?  The link above says they’re sold out so curious which bags you guys get.  Thanks.

Yeh you're welcome, friend.  I dig em too, they're not as stiff as mylar but just as shiny and protective and soooo much cheaper.
