Hi everyone,

First attempt at a mixed cash set for me. Hoping I'll be able to add a watermelon/radiant red frac at some point, but right now would appreciate some help selecting a $25 chip and some feedback on the selections so far. I really like the brightness of the LCO $25, but not sure I love the same number of edge spots as the $1. What do you think?

In terms of keeping spot progression interesting, I’d go with the wet $25. But in terms of the inlays all fitting together nicely, I think the LCO is the clear choice.

LCO looks good, now find a different hundred with better inlay
Oh, wow - I love that $100, especially with the colors playing off the $5 - I'm open to suggestions though! THC with a shaped inlay, preferably leaded - easy!

Black $20, white $100
It’s funny how Cali colors tweak me in increasing order.
Blue $1s - not my first choice, but I’m fine with them.
Yellow $5s - now we’re starting to get annoying, because $5’s are red. But yellow is interesting, so I can live with it.
Black $20s - Lool, black is the color of hundreds. Everybody knows this. But I mean, if it’s a home game and it’s the biggest chip on your table and it’s black, okay.
White $100s - NO! No no no.

Yeah I sort of started building this around the yellow $5, just because I liked it so much and was lucky to be able to get them. Stumbled across some deals for the Riffles which I also love, and so here we are. Definitely agree with you about the white $100 and I'm not sure I could ever get used to a black $20 even if it's likely not to get a ton of use on the table with any regularity.

More or less its going to come down to what you can get your hands on. I have no clue how findable the LCO 25s would be, even though it does look nice there

I really like the look of the PBCL, then the LCO, then the PCA. I use the Aztar 25 secondary and PBCL 100 and an 8v 500 in the tournament portion of my set and and really like the look of that progression. Not a huge fan of the Aztar 100, but all of this is very subjective. I agree with @FordPickup92 though, my choices were mostly determined by what I could get my hands on and some luck. I think I've decided that wet chips are my favorite looking chips though. In the end, go with what you like.
