My research, is to ask the experts (you guys).
Did I say they were fakes?
I never said they are fakes. I posted a picture and asked what the forum thought about another chip.
I haven't taken a side or given my take at all, so far.
I appreciate you explaining it. Thank you.
Although, on Apaches website, he does claim "Each chip is solid clay" (No it isn't ) "
and is custom molded just like a Paulson"(No it isn't
Same with the dunes.
All made in China.
All these chips are just riding the coattails of the original.
Good for Apache.
I like the chip, it's his #1 seller.
The consumer misinformation is rampant. Everything is CLAY, CASINO CLAY, CHINA CLAY, CLAY COMPOSITE. Meanwhile its all a varying mixture of Plastic resin, talc, and metal slugs for some.
Every day clients walk into my store and say.
"I want those heavy 15g chips like in the casino."
"Do you have clay chips" I show them actual Paulsons, "Too light, and why are they $3 each?"
Picks up a 13.5g Poker Knight chip, "like these, these are clay right?"
We spend hours a day explaining to customers how they are being lied to / taken advantage of, by other companies, and individuals selling chips with these shiny words to dupe you into these clay striped dice chips.
I was just asking the experts.
It seems like to me.
Ceramic chip and Paulson, obvious difference in look and feel.
"China clay" Paulson and a Paulson. Less obvious.
