After spending approximately an hour shuffling, stacking, and closely examining these injection-molded plastic chips (distinct from ceramic chips), here are my impressions.

Slipperiness: Similar to Matsui
Colors: Excellent
Mold: Crisp
Flashing: None
Stacking: Chips are flat and stack fine. No spinners.
Metal Insert: Magnetic
Weight: about 13g


  • Left chip: glossy label.
  • Right chip: textured matte label (not recommended) The way the light reflects off of them, it makes them look washed out. Go with the glossy option or get them with no labels and get custom labels from @Gear.
  • Bottom chip: no label. Good adhesion but not too hard to remove if you decide to do a re-label.

I don't like the comparison that they are " slippery as Matsui". I found that Matsui chips vary greatly in their slipperiness.

I would like to know which ones they are slippery as? Are they slippery as the radissons? What about the 43 mm WSOPs?

Edit; this post is brought to you by bourbon, of which I have had too much. So if I don't make sense or come off as rash, I apologize. But I honestly do believe that Matsui chips vary in their slipperiness greatly. Between Zen's, radisson's, and WSOP, they were like three different manufacturers
 
I recommend getting samples before buying any kind of chips. This is just my opinion.

Comparable to these.

Which Casino grade plastic does these Sun-fly plastic is the closest to?
I think Matsui.

How to you rank them among other Casin grade plastic?

Order of my personal favorites.
  1. Abbiati
  2. Gemaco
  3. BJ S2
  4. BJ V7 & B&G JAV (tie)
  5. Matsui
 
There's a lot of hate here for Matsui, and I do get it. But I think that it is still worth mentioning that between different colors and different sizes, they do use different materials.

With that said, in terms of feel as the only factor, I agree with Tommy in his assessment that Abbiatis are generally the best.

thanks Tommy, I'm surprised you rate B&G so low. The ones I have make them my favorite.

Didn't you have time to blast one with gamma radiation or see how many tons of hydraulic down force a stack can withstand?
 
As slippery as Matsui is a dealbreaker, but I still wanna see/feel them

Great review Tommy.

@kmccormick100 I don't think they are as slippery as matsui. I could slide barrels of chips around the table with minimum effort.

This doesn't mean they aren't slippery btw. I think they would be acceptable dependant on the price.
 
Given the slipperiness issue, I would be curious to see a comparison of these and the chinese hybrid chips from Tina, specifically the newest Web mold hybrid. I have a few of these in hand, and they are easily the best chips yet to come out of this manufacturer. I would be willing to ship some to someone who has the Sun-Flys and would compare both with an open mind. Someone mentioned hate for Matsui, and we all know how much more hate Tina chips can generate with some people.

This was my write up on the 43mm Web mold ceramics.

PM me if you'd care to make this comparison.

Or I can do it if no one else has claimed the chips above that @Tommy has.

Looking at your pictures, the ceramic web mold hybrid has very clear crosshatching/texture, while these new plastic chips seem to be smooth. Very much apples to oranges, so what’s the point? We might as well take some rough sandpaper to a printed ceramic chip, and see how it fairs compared to this plastic chip after a proper scratch test. ;)
 
This must be my lucky month (must be the new fatherhood good luck charm) :D

A few of the SG chippers including me are interested in the new Sunfly product line, these samples will come in handy and be sampled among the group

If a newbie is allowed, this would be my first pieces form PCF.
 
@Tommy do you see the possibility of being able to mix these SunFly chips into an existing set of plastics? For example with Matsui or Abiatti? Or do they feel different enough?

Abbiati uses a softer plastic. I could easily tell the difference with my eyes closed.
 
@Tommy was this your first experience with Sunfly chips or just ingection molded? Also one thing I didn't notice is rather 39mm or 43mm?

The SunFly chips I reviewed in this thread are plastic injection molded chips. It's a brand-new line of chips by SunFly. Very different than ceramic chips from any manufacturer. To keep it an apples-to-apples comparison, these new Sunfly chips are best compared to injection molded chips by Abbiati, Matsui, B&G, Gemaco, and Bud Jones.
 
I have been thinking about these a lot for the past couple of days. I’m probably not the target market but I am intrigued. It seems to me these would be perfect to put one’s own label on, but the denominations on the outer ring precludes that if one doesn’t want to stick to the (very reasonable and standard) color scheme.

At some point I’ll have to get a sample set. I run really hot and cold on the injection molded plastics. Some I really like and there’s others I don’t care for at all.

I see nothing wrong with comparing all chips (regardless of composition or manufacturer) to determine their place on the 'slippery scale'. Especially new types of chips.

That’s not what was suggested though, now was it?
