Our thoughts on the 13 Gram Clay Casino Poker Chips
In our Composite Versus Clay thread tizim talks about clay versus composite. Here is what he says:
I've heard people on this forum say that composite/clay composite is the same thing, and that there is only 1 kind of dice, suit, etc. style of chips. But, if you look on pokernstuff.com, they list 2 different type of chips: ABS composite chips, and clay composite chips.
I ordered samples of these chips, and I must say, they are completely different. The ABS composite chips are, as often described here, smooth like dominos, have a high pitched twang when dropped, and bounce a lot. The clay composite chips have a tacky feel to them, and when dropped, produce a low pitched sound and dont bounce much. But, I ordered the dice ones, and the design on the clay composite 11.5 grams are of poor quality compared the the ABS composite ones (the stripes are inconsistent and misshaped).
It is true that these 13 gram clay chips have a different sound than the 11.5 gram composite chips. The composiste chips have a high pitched metallic sound but the 13 gram clay chips are not as loud. For many home games either version would work but the clay chips are nicer.
These 13 gram chips have a great feel to them, they are among the heaviest chips available on the market. These chips have the quality and feel of authentic casino poker chips used at the most famous casino resorts around the world, such as the Mirage and Bellagio Resorts. These chips have the soft feel of a clay surface which makes them among the most authentic poker chip available on the home gaming market. They are crafted of a solid clay, with an inconspicuous metal insert allowing hot stamping for these excellent chips. These exclusive chips were created by the use of the latest technology to produce the heavy weight combined with the real sound and feel of an actual Casino chip. It is very difficult to tell that these chips have an insert - they sound that great.
