They look like they'd be really slippery, but what the hell do I know? How do they handle and shuffle?

Just fine to me. I like both clay and injection molded chips about the same. Maybe injection molded a little more. :bag: Each come with their own characteristics. Some are positive, and some are not. Definitely not as slippery as some other plastics. They have a nice weight too @ 10.95g.
 
@Tommy whats your favorite brand of plastic chips? Does this take the cake?

I like them all!

What's funny is I laid these out in no particular order but now that I look at it, it is close to the order that I like them. Far right being my most favorite. Maybe GEMACO and BJ S2 can be swapped. They are close.

@Tommy without research did the ship never sail? Never herd of it, Did you build a live set or purchase their entire bank? Very cool chips!! That $500 is amazing!! Curious how they get to almost 11g without lead or an insert. Either way awesome score sir!! Fellow chipper Ben
 
Wow I'm shocked you'd have CIC in front of the V7. Especially when you designed one of the best V7 sets to ever be produced.

Wow. No love for the BG.

It sailed for a short time. Open 2010 and closed in 2011. Many chips purchased. ;)
Some of the colors that GEMACO made are amazing. The green on the $500 requires sun glasses to look at.

They have an insert. It is a non-brass one so it's magnetic. Non-brass inserts tend to be a tiny bit lighter too if they are the same size.

Haha own the same scale and great minds think alike... I was going to ask if they were magnetic... very cool!! So you shared the chips but not the total chip count... did you get a monster set of these beauties?

Any comment on the stacking and slipperiness issues with these Gemacos that seem to be the biggest concerns with the high-end plastic chips?

I was comparing them to the Black Diamond GEMACOS chips that I bought a while back. Totally different type of chip. Black Diamonds had razor sharp edges, but when compared to these Opus chips, the Black Diamond chips seem like they were unfinished.

I didn't notice any stacking issues with either.

Check out the edges of the BDs. Sharp but looks like they could be cleaned up a bit. Maybe these were a cheaper line for GEMACO.

Opus has rounded edges and a nice clean finish.

interesting order, I haven't had the opportunity to handle all of them, but CIC would be hard to beat for myself
