Poker chip Poker chip These chips are a less expensive variation of the James Bond Casino de Isthmus Paulson home poker chips. They are a clay chip and are about one-half the price of the Paulson's. The mold has a nice feel to it - flat and slim. There is an engraved groove near the outer perimeter of the chip along with eight flame-like emblems. It is definitely a composite feel rather than a true clay feel, but the feel is fairly good. It does not have the feel of a true clay chip, but it does not have the feel of a composite chip either. It feels like a more-plasticy Blue Chip, but with more uniform (perfect) edges and manufacturing.

The denominations are very easy to read and line up perfectly with the edge spots. The colors are the standard blue, red, green, black, and yellow. There is a $1000 chip but no $500 chip. I could just barely peel the label off with my fingernail. There is a very tight fit between the recessed label and the outer border of the chip, so that it is almost impossible to get your fingernail under the label. The label is slightly recessed into the chip, so that it is fairly level with the clay. These chips look a lot like a NexGen poker chip when you peel the label off.

Poker chip insides There is no metal insert in these chips. They have the sound of a Blue Chip poker chip, just a touch hollow, but nowhere near the metallic clink of a metal-insert chip. They have a much better sound than composite poker chips. Texture-wise, they feel more like a composite chip than a real clay chip. The feel isn't bad, it's just not quite a true clay feel.

Poker chip side view There are four bi-color edge spots that contrast nicely with the base color of the chip. The edge spots are solid through the chip and the chip edges are rounded, not sharp. There are no edge ridges or visible injection mold pimples or spots. There is a small circular mark under the label on one side of the chip.

Sample weights were 9.76, 9.58, 9.98, 9.84, and 9.89 grams. Sample diameters were 39.53, 39.49, 39.48, 39.47, and 39.46mm. Five chips stacked together was 17.00mm thick.

These chips are priced at 59 each.

Poker chip These are nice 11.5g composite chips without a metal insert. They have a nice wheat leaf design that reminds me a bit of a laurel or something that's Caesars Palace night have. They have engraved crowns in each of the three edge spots.

The feel is somewhat better than a typical 11.5g composite. They have a bit more of a clay feel to them. There have been a lot more of these types of chips on the market lately - they weigh 11.5g but do not have a metal insert and have more of a clay or rubber feel to them. These 'clay style' 11.5g composites without a metal insert are one step up from a typical 11.5 metal insert composite chip. I could just barely break a chip in half with my fingers but it took maximum effort.

The sound is better than a metal insert chip - there is more of a hollow thud to these chips. they don't quite have a casino chip sound to them, but they do lack that metal 'ring' of a metal insert chip.

There are three white edge spots on each chip (grey edge spots on the white chip. There are diamonds in between the edge spots. There are no edge ridges. The edge spots are solid through the chip. Scratches hid well and I had to dig about 1mm deep before I hit the grayish 'clay' interior.

I was sent numerous samples these chips. The diameters were 40.09, 40.18, 40.13, 40.20, and 40.16mm. Five chips stacked together was 16.84mm thick.

I like these chips. Between the nice leaf design, the lack of a metal insert, and the overall feel and sound, they are a very nice chip.

Poker chip Poker chip These are two versions of the same mold. The chip on the left is bi-color and the chip on the right is tri-color. The chip on the left has designs that are engraved into the chip whereas the chip on the right does not. The bi-color chip is 16 per chips and the tri-color chip is 24 per chip.

They are the same non-metal insert chip as the chip shown above. They have a better sound to them than a typical metal insert chip. They can be broke in half by using maximum effort with your fingers.

I was sent numerous samples the chips to the left. The diameters were 39.99, 40.10, 40.03, 39.97, and 39.97mm. Five chips stacked together was 16.64mm thick.

I was sent numerous samples of the chips to the right. The diameters were 40.16, 40.10, 40.21, 40.12, , and 40.22mm. Five chips stacked together was 17.00mm thick.

Poker chip Poker chip I wasn't expecting to be sent these chips and when I opened the box I thought "Oh, Faux Clay's" but then I noticed the word 'POKER' and the four suits engraved into the chip. Then I noticed that they felt slightly lighter in weight and that they sound much different than a Faux Clay.

The faux Clay poker chip is shown on the right for comparison purposes, the Faux Clay is not sold by ChipsandGames.com. The Poker Suited feels much lighter than the Faux Clay and the sound is definitely different. The Faux Clay has much more of a metallic ring to it than the Poker Suited. The Poker Suited has a lighter, more hollow thud to it than the Faux Clay. I put three stacks of ten chips side-by-side - Poker Suited, Faux Clay, and Paulson Pharaoh's. I riffled each stack repeatedly (this gave me an idea for yet another page on my site - Poker Chip Sound Comparison) and compared all three stacks. The Poker Suited was the softest and most hollow. It was the least loud of the three. It sounded like a cross between the Paulson and a super diamond chip. The Paulson sounded like ... a Paulson. It has the typical casino clay chip sound. it has a sharper sound with more of a 'clack' to it than the Poker Suited. The Faux Clay had the loudest and sharpest sound of the three. It also has the most ring or metallic sound to it. It has more of a 'clack' than the Poker Suited. Both the Poker Suited and Faux Clay try to mimic the sound of a real casino chip - the Poker Suited is softer and more hollow and the Faux Clay is louder and has more of a clack.

The size of the inner circle is 23.25mm (on the Faux Clay it's 23.50mm). The outside border is slightly larger than on the Faux Clay, it is 7.5mm compared to the Faux Clay 6.8mm. There is also a difference in the size of the groove, with the Poker Suited groove being 0.75mm and the Faux Clay groove being 1.0mm.

I was sent numerous samples these chips. The diameters were 40.16, 40.14, 40.10, 40.13, and 40.15mm. Five chips stacked together was 16.35mm thick. The size is comparable to the Faux Clay. There are no edge spots or edge ridges on these chips. They have the same injection pimple as the Faux Clay, but it might be slightly less noticeable.

Overall, the Poker Suited has a better sound and feel than the Faux Clay. It is also slightly prettier. Anyone who is thinking of ordering this chip or the Faux Clay should order samples of both and see, and feel, for themselves. Some people will like the lighter weight and more hollow sound but others will think that it sounds too much like a super diamond chip. I liked it.

No metal insert These look like your typical 11.5g metal insert composite but ... they do not have a metal insert. The feel is also softer than a typical metal insert chip. They have a better sound to them than the metal insert chips, a bit softer and more hollow.

I was sent numerous samples these chips. The diameters were 39.96, 39.91, 39.94, and 40.16mm. Three chips stacked together was 10.03mm thick. There are no edge ridges. I could snap a chip in half with my fingers using maximum strength.

Poker chip These are 10 gram composite chips without a metal insert. They have the look and feel of an RT Plastics chip, but are not. The labels on this chip feel nice but can be peeled off with a fingernail. The label is less slick than most other chips and has a lovely design on it. There are denominations printed on this chip.

There are six white edge spots, each with a diamond in the center of the rolling edge. The edge spots are not simply painted on the chip. All denominations have white edge spots. There are no edge ridges on this chip.

I was sent three of these chips. The diameters were 39.41, 39.39 and 39.42mm. Three chips stacked together were 10.05mm thick.

The sound is not bad, it does not have that metallic sound to it. They do have a bit of a hollow sound to them. The chip is quite slippery when stacked, but does stack well. The feel is softer than a typical composite and may be a bit softer than an RT Plastics chip.

Poker chip These are 11.5 gram composite chips with a metal insert. The feel of these chips is similar to a 13 gram composite chip. It has a bit of a chalky feel to it. The chip can be scratched with a fingernail or another chip. The scratch will eventually blend in and, like the 13 gram chips, will simply add character to the chip.

They have a metallic ring to them but not quite as bad as a typical metal insert composite, the softer clay seems to deaden the ring somewhat. They may be slightly less slippery than a typical composite but this is negligible. There is a small injection mold pimple in a trench on one side of the chip. There is also a small dimple near the injection mold pimple on some chips.

I was sent numerous samples these chips. The diameters were 40.21, 40.13 and 39.85mm. Three chips stacked together were 10.18mm thick.

Each chip has 12 stripes that act as effective edge spots. The stripes contrast nicely with the chip base color. I like the stripes on these chips better than any other chip I've seen. The tri-color (a third color on the face of the chip is also a nice touch.
