Well folks... that's a wrap! I'm now sold out of all my Crystal Park chips. You guys made ~4000 chips disappear pretty damn fast lol. I'll leave this thread open to give any buyers who want feedback a chance to post.

So its generally frowned upon to murder these ones right? I'd have bought 2 racks to murder earlier, but I'd feel awful based off of how rare these seem to be, so I let the same members have at them.

I don’t think you can murder them. They are giant inlays. They are faux edge spots. You may be able to overlabel but not sure how good of a result you could get.

I feel dumb, I didnt see the post on page 1 saying they cant be murdered. Sorry folks lol

I can see why you'd want to! I've never owned a set for a shorter amount of time than when I owned Crystal Parks (and that's saying something!). I disliked the inlay even more in person than I did on the screen.

Thank goodness there are chips for everyone's tastes!

I like the inlay design, just not the fact that it's giant inlay and printed spots. But the chips themselves I really like. The colors are great.

The 5s used to bug me a lot. It always felt like so much loss potential. Who goes and designs a beautiful yellow chip and only puts black edge spots?? Seemed like a lot of loss potential. The secondary 5s with the lavender and purple edge spots are hot, wish they mad more of those. But once I had these chips in hand and played with them I see what everyone was talking about. Especially once they are cleaned up, they just shine.

Scary part of this is that everyone says old school heavy leaded TRKs are the best you can get. Now I'm really curious and starting to understand. This is why I try to avoid getting samples of chips!

And it doesn’t even make sense why they did that. There was really no reason for it, and they only do it on three denominations (1s, 2s, and 5s). But then again we are learning a lot about GPI and idiotic chip choices on the last few TCR sales. HSI fracs, 1s, and snappers only with small inlays? IOC 25s and 100s only on a housemold? Jack Cincinnati 1s and snappers only THCs? I guess we should be more surprised when it’s right as opposed to when it’s wrong…

The secondary 5s may not do it for you when you realize the inlay covers the whole chip. Yep right to the edge. From the edge view you can actually see the inlay edge too. Same is true for secondary 1,2, and 3. Nice for a sample set but not good for play IMO.

I was thinking about this as well. However, I noticed that oversized inlay chips are longer-wearing (slower to thin out) than normal inlay chips. That would be a fine reason to use them for the lower denomination chips. I think those plastic inlays are nearly indestructible.
