I had ten of these chips sent to me so I had a pretty good stack to play with. I definitely noticed
the difference in weight. Lifting one chip was noticeable but lifting a stack was much more noticeable. Keep in mind
that I am also the type of player who notices a big difference from the 9-10 gram casino weight to the 11.5
gram composite chip weight.
The feel of this chip is a little less 'plasticy' than a typical 11.5 gram composite chip. There
is a bit of a 'chalky' feeling to them. If you press hard, you can scrape your fingernail across the chip and leave a
skid mark. The sound does have a bit of that same metallic clink as a composite but these chips definitely have a
heftier 'thud'. The extra weight seems to help deaden some of the metallic sound. Please note that these chips may be
slightly thicker than regular chips and may not fit in all chip trays or racks.
These chips have three solid edge spots with two diamonds between each spot. The edge spots are
fine but somewhat unspectacular. The chips have a bit of a chiseled brickish look to them and stack nicely. They are
not as slippery as your typical 11.5g composite. Color quality is good, not too dull but not too bright. There
are no edge ridges.
Each chip has a 1 mm injection mold pimple located on one side of the chip, just under the
rim. Once you know it's there, you can spot it from a foot away. Again, some people who already own these
chips might not have ever noticed this.
I'm not sure why anyone would want to play with a 13 gram chip. Standard casino chips weigh about 9.5
grams each and I don't even want to play with 11.5 gram chips let alone 13 grams! But if you don't mind the
heavier weight and hate the slickness of most 11.5 gram composite chips, this might be the chip for you.
