I received a set of these chips as a gift, and I could not be more pleased with them. This is my first clay chipset, however, I have spent time in casinos, so I know what a clay chip should feel like. The texture is wonderful; these chips are great for tricks, and stack very well. I could not get over how "grabby" (for lack of a better word) these chips are. The center graphic on the chip is tasteful and not overly distracting. The sound is exactly what you would expect from a clay chip. No metal clink. The chips are quite soft and mark up if you dig into them, however, this only really happens if your intention is to mark up the chip. Per dollar, this is easily the highest quality set that I have seen available. If you are looking for an affordable, quality clay set to have fun with and impress your poker buddies, this set should be your choice.
