I was thinking maybe try for something bigger but I don't know what thing to get over 18,000 ftps has the best value.
Just take a look. Some microfiber jackets costing about as much, bathrobe 11000. A pair of rubber flip flops are 6500, electronic wine opener is 12600 pts, a dartboard is 13500. I'd have to say the chips are possible double in value than most other items.
As far as quality, they are very high quality for what they are
, if that makes sense. They are by NO means cheaply made. It simply and probably just costs them a lot less to produce. If you are highly discriminating connosoire in a certain way - tactily, sensorally (are those words? lol), audally, etc toward a lacquered clay chip in a mahogany box, these won't be for you. But they are 11.5 wt chips, and they feel fine enough for me. It's a good bargain only if you can really use them. I think the set is worth well over $100 but I could be wrong. And you could see from my pic above, they are pretty cool-looking.
BTW, The pic in the 500 chip set is really the pic for the 300 set. As far as how many chips they give you in each color...Maybe they made a mistake with mine, but I got 150 in ONLY gray. 100 each of red, blue & green, and 50 blue. Their as says you're supposed to get 150 EACH of gray & red. That makes more sense. Did they make a booboo with mine? Does anyone know?
