Deakon's thoughts on the James Bond Paulson Poker Chips
As soon as I dumped these chips from their envelope I knew why these chips were so eagerly anticipated. They are stunning, but of course, they are Paulsons.
Price Comparisons for James Bond Paulson Poker Chips
Paulson's are not cheap but the quality is unbeatable. Many people upgrade to Paulson after being unhappy with the cheaper sets.
James Bond Paulson Poker Chips Appearance described by Deakon
The edge spots on the chips are very well matched with the individual chip base color. The only chip I may not favor too much is the $1000 chip; it seems just a bit brighter in comparison to the other chips. There has been a lot of discussion about the inlay issue; the chip mold is designed for a grand-style inlay, but they chose to use the classic-style. This is overlooked when you actually have the chips in hand.
James Bond Paulson Poker Chips Quality described by Deakon
They are a softer chip when compared to chips like ASM's horse head mold, TR Kings, and most Blue Chip Company chips. The chips feel great and sound even better. There is a deeper pitch in them which is very obvious when stacking other manufacturers' chips. The weight of these chips is between 9.7-9.9 grams.
Paulson Chips in the MarketplacePaulson Chips are the Rolls Royce of poker chips. All other poker chips are measured against Paulson poker chips. The name Paulson is synonymous with quality. The quality comes at a price, Paulson Chips are not cheap but you get what you pay for. Paulson Chips are good for folks who have existing poker chips but want to upgrade to the next level. Paulson Chips are the standard against which all other poker chips are measured.
My Paulson ChipsI've handled Paulson Chips many times in the casinos. For example, Hustler Casino in Los Angeles uses Paulson Chips. Paulson Chips can also be found in MGM or Bally's in Las Vegas. I took home one of these Paulson Chips from Hustler some time ago but it is slightly different from these James Bond Paulson Chips. One of the most noticable differences is that the Hustler Paulson Chips have more hat and canes around the edge than the James Bond Paulson Chips which only have 2.
The Paulson Chips have a clay-like feel and the pictures do not do them justice. I now realize that my next set of chips should be Paulson, they are much better than any other chip in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, the Nevada Jacks chips are nice(and a lot less expensive) but if budget is no object then Paulson Chips are the clear choice.
Beware of immitation Paulson Chips, especially with the James Bond chips. When folks offer Paulson chips be sure to check for the hat and cane around the edge. Each side of these chips has 2 hats and canes and the phrase PAULSON CHIPS in 2 places.
Paulson Chips in CasinosMany casinos around the world use Paulson Chips. I recently played at Hustler Casino in the Los Angeles area and they use Paulson Chips. The Paulson Chips at Hustler are different from the James Bond Paulson Chips in that the Hustler Chips have 8 hats and canes around the edges on each side whereas the James Bond Paulson Chips only have 2 hats and canes around the edges on each side. I also picked up a Paulson Chip from the Rio in Las Vegas recently. Like the Hustler Paulson Chip, The Rio Paulson Chip also has 8 hat and canes around the edges on each side. Our Casino Paulson Chips Page has pictures of Paulson Chips from various casinos.
Denominations of James Bond Paulson Chips
The James Bond Paulson Chips have been out a lot longer than the Pharaohs Paulson Chips so they are more proven. On the other hand sometimes people like the adventure of going with something new. I like the surface of the James Bond Paulson Chips better than the surface of the Pharaohs Paulson Chips. Maybe it is because I got the James Bond Chips first and I got used to that 3rd type of surface area. It is a subtle difference and many people probably do not pay attention to it.
Why James Bond Paulson Chips are CoolEveryone knows that Paulson Chips are among the best in the world. They are used by the finest casinos and they are the standard by which other chips are judged. A lot of people like the James Bond movies, he takes chances in and out of casinos and things always seem to go his way. The James Bond Paulson Chips have the Casino De Isthmus on each label. The Casino De Isthmus was the fictional casino in the James Bond movie License to Kill. There are other clay chips out there but none compare to genuine Paulson clay poker chips.
