    A couple of pictures of the family. $100 dollar starting stacks from each set.

    Two CPC sets, a Paulson set, a TRK set and a BCC set.

    Are you going to commit to keeping the OP updated every time you replace a family member?

    100% killer chips. I would argue that the non CPC chips are not family, more like mistresses who agree to an open relationship.

    The .50 chips are the only ones that needed oiled. Since the TRK'S haven't been oiled and their hitting the felt I figured it was time to give them some TLC

    I'm just picturing the back of your minivan. Instead of stick figures representing your human family, you just have pic of stacks of chips. :D

    If you remove the custom aspect from the CPC's the TRK's are easily my favorite set.

    Overall I prefer the feel, sound, and edge spots on them over the other sets

    Funny, I just grabbed a stack of TRK samples for the first time in a long time, and I've been shuffling them for a bit. Surprisingly (at least to me) I definitely don't prefer them over Paulson clay. And the "short" edge spots have always left me wanting more. Don't get me wrong, as far as I'm concerned, TRK's are the undisputed king of cool and I definitely want a set very very very much. But if I could only own a single set, I guess it wouldn't be TRK.

    Aaaand after shuffling them for another long while, all I can say is that these chips are maddingly endearing.

    Another thing that I like is that the ones feel a little different (and heavier) than the fives. Its like two different experiences depending on which stack your shuffling (probably doesn't make sense lol).

    Anyways, the BCC InPlays are finally hitting the felt. I'm using them at the next league game.

    Starting stacks on post #16. 10 x .5, 20 x 1, 7 x 5 for a .50/.50 60 max buy in.
