These are nice. These are not SUPER nice,
This review is from: Fat Cat 11.5 Gram Texas Hold 'em Clay Poker Chip Set with Aluminum Case, 500 Striped Dice Chips (Sports)These are nice. These are not SUPER nice. If you want chips that tell other people, "Hey! This person spent some real money on these babies! I mean... LOOK at us! We are FLAWLESS! This guy really knows how to spend his money on poker chips! He probably has nothing but Perrier and high-end microbrews in his fridge... right next to the caviar. And just LOOK at that CASE they came in. WOW! You really are not posh enough to play poker with THIS man." Then these chips are not for you. If, however, you want a set of 500 striped clay chips that are pretty nice for less than $40 and have a good weight and feel, then you might want to buy these. Okay. The case is not super nice, but it isn't flimsy either. It has a third clasp, which is nice. The only real fault is the felt-ish lined plastic molding for the chips. Admittedly, not great. But.... $37! Come on! The cards are not the best I've seen. They do not look as though they will last too many poker nights, but you aren't buying the... Read more

I bought these so we could have poker nights because I like the clay poker chips. I was excited when these came in but when I opened the packages of chips I was very disappointed. The paint quality is terrible. The chips aren’t brightly colored, or evenly colored. There are light and dark spots in the paint, and the coloring is horribly faded. The paint actually rubbed off onto my fingers as I was unwrapping them. I didn’t expect high end chips for the price but I also didn’t expect them to look like absolute crap either. Some of the chips have small imperfections like blemishes or gouges. I didn’t even bother with unwrapping the playing cards or the dealer buttons. I absolutely plan on returning this item and getting my money back.

As good as most casual player's chips,
This review is from: Fat Cat 11.5 Gram Texas Hold 'em Clay Poker Chip Set with Aluminum Case, 500 Striped Dice Chips (Sports)I was a little skeptical purchasing these chips because I saw all of the negative reviews. I must say now that I have them I am very happy with my choice. Some people will never be satisfied with anything. It is very important to understand that you are paying just about 32 dollars for 500 poker chips that equates to about 6 cents a chip. It is also important to remember that there is no shipping charge for this product (at the time of this review. So when someone says pay the extra 20 dollars and get a nicer set remember that is 20 + almost 20 for shipping.
that said let me get to the chips themselves. they are all the same dimensions. I saw some posts complaining about width and height. Basically if you set down a ten stack and match its height then you don't need to count the chips (you will have ten). I only say this because I know some people were claiming that this was not so.
the chips have blemishes some are scratched others are streaked some... Read more
