Due to the increasing popularity of poker many people are looking to recycle those plastic weightless chips for affordable clay composite poker chips. There is also some confusion on the term clay composite. Clay composite is also referred to as composite poker chips and ABS plastic chips. In this featured article I will give you valuable information to make an informed decision on purchasing these inexpensive clay composite poker chips.
Clay Composite Construction and Styles
Clay composite poker chips are most recognizable as suited, royal suited, 먹튀폴리스 위너 super diamond, deluxe pyramid, dice, and tri-color. These composite chips weigh 8 grams or less but typically come in 11.5 gram to 14 gram varieties. The construction of these chips are made of a metal inserted into a plastic injection. A good way to tell if your poker chip contains a metal insert, is to grab a magnet and hold it near the chip. These poker chips have a hard plastic feel to them and makes a “clink” sound when dropped.
My first set of poker chips were the dice style poker chips. I bought a 1000 piece poker chip set only because I enjoy hosting home poker tournaments with 10 or more people. If your looking to spend very little on poker chips, these are the poker chips to get. If you enjoy doing chip tricks to impress your friends for example chip shuffling, you will find that difficult to learn or do with these hard plastic chips. With chip shuffling this requires some cohesion between the chip surfaces. I once bought a poker chip set for a brother in-law for Christmas and I bought him the tri-color chips weighing in at approximately 14 grams. These chips are approximately 10cents more per chip than other clay composite chips. What appealed to me was they felt and sound more authentic than the hard plastic chips, and best of all I could easily shuffle large stacks of chips.
