Welp, just got in my sample set of the bank set, and just as I hoped they wouldn't be, they are exactly the same trash as the magestics. Due to the blunting of the edges and poor quality, they do not shuffle worth a crud. Now I understand the importance of 90 degree edges and smooth finish! Ugh, ceramics here I come lol

Good thing you got samples then. I used to own a set of Royals and even though I really liked it, I decided it's wasn't a keeper set. Ceramics are nice, I really like the Brpropoker ones but do yourself a favour and get some clay samples as well if you haven't already. There's a good chance that's where you'll end up eventually anyway.

I love ceramics, but I like to reserve them for when I need gorgeous full face art on my chips. I never liked the way that the cheap China clays felt/shuffled ... Until I got my Royals. They shuffle like butter. Yes, they don't have sharp edges. But sharp edges are a luxury that quickly disappears as Paulson chips are used.

The best feeling/shuffling/sounding/looking chips are broken-in, leaded THC.

There are sample sets of higher end chips available for free evaluation, just sign up in the thread near the top of the Poker Chip General section.
