@mummel the prices are going up today. Please place your order now. I thought you would be the first person to order.
Thanks. Doing it now. It’s been one helluva party weekend haha. I just woke up.

They will be very close.
So I was planning on ordering a set in the presale, but this issue scared me off and I ended up ordering sample sets and some labels (just in case I end up needing them). I really don't like the Majestic pink. Dunno why you'd do this. Is a vivid pink like this difficult to achieve or costly?

Any estimates on weight and thickness? What kind of rack would these fit in, and would they work in a bird cage? Also, read through all the posts but don't think I saw it - edges are beveled or sharp square?
-edit- Just reading about CC now and saw the first post, I guess a square edge CC isn't possible? Never felt a desert palm CC, but do have majestics, milanos, and dunes in hand for comparison

(still a newb) This is probably the dumbest question; but here it is....

Is the 43mm the same size as the Majestics? Or are these oversized? What size are most paulson/china clay chips? 39mm or 43mm?

Most are 39. Majestic’s are 39 and most common Paulsons are 39 they use the 43 for higher value chips though, not always but generally.
These are oversized as it’s all the rage currently with members.

43mm are oversized - the "standard" chips (be it clay/china clay/ceramic/etc.) are 39mm (not always, but usually).

Make sure you handle both sizes before buying anything. A lot of people on here love the oversized 43mm chips.

I am not one of them, for whatever reason.

Thank you guys, that's what I thought but wasn't sure!

This is my first set of chips I am purchasing and have custom labels made. I purchased a large amount wanted to get a pre sale price. Does anyone have any concern that these will not be good. I have a sample set of majestics that I really like. The Royals are being made by the same manufacturer. So is there any reason to worry about quality?

I'm looking forward to these as they will be oversized and diff spot patterns. Def think this will be an improvement from Majestics. I have a set of those and like them as well. Can't wait to see these in a few months. I think we'll all be happy as long as the current Majestic Manufacturer does the same quality of work.

Based on historical information...
  • Majestics are brittle for chips. Not super brittle, but I have had a few broken in shipping, despite adequate (but not excellent) packing. Larger chips giver greater leverage that could facilitate breakage.
  • Majestics are good chips, and these are expected to be the same (but larger)
  • Some colors are experimental. Some colors from this manufacturer have turned out excellent (orange, light green) others have been dismal (red, light blue, pink). That's 2:3 against blurple being as good as I hope for. However, Josh physically gave a Horseshoe $25,000 chip with the instructions to "get as close as possible to this" - that could help a lot.
  • Never played with CC 43mm, nor have I ever played with a complete set of 43mm chips. I have played with 36mm and hated them, but others have built complete sets out of 36mm chips and love them. It's a personal preference thing. I do not doubt some Majestic fans will love the 43mm, and some will hate them. Time will tell where I fall.
  • Since the Majsetics, Josh has had the chance to receive feedback. He has always taken our comments to heart and made improvements when possible, so any "flaws" in the Majestics could have been addressed in the Royals.
Am I worried? No, I bought some. But I'm also cautious. I have plenty of sets to choose from, I don't need chips that will just collect dust.

@jbriod, I like that they are oversized too and the spot patterns. Was almost going to buy set of majestics until I saw the pre sale. I really new to all of the this. I know we really won't know until they are released but from what I have read on PCF I do not think @Apache would support an inferior product.

Thanks again @Poker Zombie, this will be my first real set have only played with dice chips. So these will not collect dust. I have also read here that the newer runs of Majestics seem to be more durable. I am excited and can not to have custom labels made.
