Re: imthatguy's Face-Off
$500 new is better, but qualifed:
The only thing that i liked, but liked almost enough to be a one issue voter was the elimination of white infavor of dark plumb/purple whatever on the $500 chip. I SOOO don't like the white salmon and lavendar (my words) combo that I might not buy a set with that in it (i am oonly interested in 25, 100, 500 and ncv chips). That combo makes me feel all QQ in my hole cards. However i am not a big fan ot the narrow widely spaced six edgespots of the new one, though the colors are better. My pefect would be the darke edgespot color of the alternate design as a base (or failing that the alternate chip base) with the original patern with the other purple shade and orange (no white). I accept all the competing interests and limitations and my own particular aparent discomfort with my sexuality on that chip, but just thought i would let you know where i came out.
$25, new is just a little better as three shades are better than two (which one can do on ones own custom order), but i like both fine
$100 old is SOOO much better, that it outweighed the considerations fo other chips. thre red white blue looks just so much like a USO set
NCV is unchanged as is my opition.
