I did not really need another tournament set but I was really curious about the chips being used in the "cards mold group buy" run by @SeanGecko and wanted to check if this seller was using the same blanks as SunFly's PolyClay chips.
The design features the sentence "Fino alla Fine" (= until the end) which is also the Juventus slogan. They also feature my initials. I wanted classic colors and the same edge spots for all the denominations. Only the bounty chip has different spots.
This tournament set is mainly foreseen for 8 players T20,000 freezeouts with 12/12/7/10/1 starting stacks on opening blinds 25-50. I've also foreseen bounty chips.
This set can also be used as T10,000 tournament with one re-entry allowed. I would then probably use opening blinds 25-25.
This set can also accomodate T15,000 full table (10 players) freezeout.
And it can even cover 2 6-max tables (so 12 players) T7500 freezeout. In this case, I would also use opening blinds 25-25.
So the total chip count is 400 :
T25 x 100 + 5 spares
T100 x 100 + 5 spares
T500 x 60 + 5 spares
T1000 x 80 + 5 spares
T5000 x 20 + 5 spares
Bounty x 10 + 5 spares
Here's a picture of the chips received. Thanks to @BarryWhine and @albatros63 for ordering the chips together to reduce shipping fees.
Comparison with SunFly PolyClays
Here're some comparison pictures with other SunFly's diamonds mold chips I own.
The chips look the same but they are of different quality. I could notice few spinners with these chips but not a single one with the SunFly ones.
The other difference I noticed are on the rolling edges. On SunFly's chips, they are glossy, on the Alibaba seller's chips, they are matte as you can see on the picture below. Also, the ones from Alibaba seller can stand on edge, unlike the ones from SunFly.
Also, the edge alignment on the Alibaba seller's chips is far from perfect. There SunFly is doing much better. I voluntary picked one of the chips having the worst alignment.
Overall we have to keep in mind the price tags. These chips are very nice and they stack very well even though there are some spinners.
+ : interesting cheap option for full customs.
