Poker chip 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.

Poker chip These Royal Suited, Dice Striped, Suited and Pyramid style chips weigh 11.5 grams each and are produced from a composite resin. They are available in four styles - Royal Suited, Dice Striped, Suited, and Deluxe Pyramid and up to ten colors. The only real considerations between the different chips is the design and edge spots. The Royal Suited and Dice Striped have four and six edge spots, respectively. The Deluxe Pyramid has eight small bars and the Suited has numerous diamonds. There are no ridges on the edge.

Poker chip These chips are nice. The weight, feel, and sound is excellent for a diamond type chip. This is one of the better diamond chips, without the plasticy feel that some diamond chips have. The 9 gram weight is also very important when using diamond chips, the 8 gram diamond chips just feel and sound too light.

These chips were hard to scratch or mark and did hide scratches very well. There is a small injection mold pimple in the trench just under the rim which is no problem. There are no edge ridges on this chip.

Before you purchase any 11.5g composite chips, get some samples and put a stack of 5 good diamond chips next to a stack of 5 composite chips. Riffle them for a while, get to know them. Which chips have the better sound and feel? Which chips feel more natural, more like a casino chip? Many people will answer that the diamond chip is better. It has a more traditional weight and feel and is much less slippery.

When you do a side-by-side comparison of a good 9 gram diamond chip versus your average 11.5 gram composite chip, the diamond chip will win for feel and uniformity of weight. They feel better balanced. The diamond chips will, however, lose in overall chip appearance, especially for the lack of any type of edge spots.

Comp 4 N D 11.5 N N 1 .22 75 110 150 240

Poker chip These 39 mm diameter casino-sized chips are 11.5 grams in weight. They have the word "TEXAS" at the top of the chip and "HOLD'EM" engraved at the bottom along the outer rim of the chip. An ace & king of diamonds cards are engraved in the left and right of the rim. There are four solid edge spots. There are three diamonds on the rolling edge between each spot. There are no ridges on the edge.

These chips have a slightly different color to them than the typical 11.5g composite. I find that these chips have a bit more of a plastic chip color look and feel to them but the difference is so small as to be almost meaningless. The injection mold pimple is located under the word TEXAS on one side of the chip and it's more of a dimple than a pimple.
