I was bought a set of 3 for Christmas 2012. I sadly, and I do mean sadly as it broke my heart, dropped one on my tiled kitchen floor an it smashed so here I am purchasing a new set.
They are (mishap aside) very durable, very easy to clean and very comfortable to roll your cigarette with. Not to mention that they draw like a gel pen.
Hopefully my being here replacing the broken set is testament enough. They're right, you won't want to go back to roach card.
