    New to this forum. Ive been looking into getting a new midrange set of chips for a few months, finally decided to pull the trigger but want to see what you all think first. Very interested in the Veneratis, but any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Edit*From ND, 31 Blackjack dealer and home dad. Searching for chip reviews I found this forum.

    Welcome! Can't go wrong with the Veneratis. Get samples. Also check out the WSOP replicas. They are cheap, and have great colors.

    Welcome! My only advice is to get samples before ordering a full set. FWIW, I've heard good things about the Veneratis.

    Veneratis are nice ceramic chips. Definitely get samples. In that same price range, you should also get samples of some China clays, maybe the Majestics.

    Thanks for the welcome and advice. A few questions;

    1:Where can i find wsop replicas?/ are they china clays?

    2:How are china clays rolling edge? I want something conaistent and without extra material there(like the dice chips)

    3: Do china clays use an adhesion inlay or are they hotpressed?

    4:How do you know if a chip is in the "chonaclay" category?

    1. These are china clay wsop replicas: cash chips, tournament chips. Others exist but maybe not in this quantity.

    2. China clays are compression molded, so there is no separate material on the rolling edges.

    3. Stickers.

    4. Compression molded chips made in China are referred to here as china clays. The other chips made in China are injection-molded, some with slugs (e.g., dice chips) and some without (e.g., Dunes).

    I'm not aware of a list of all china clay chips per se, but if you see something you like, you can search this site to find out what they are. Or ask. Generally speaking, if the chip is described as compression molded but is not made by Paulson, CPC (Classic Poker Chips), BCC (Blue Chip Corporation) and costs less than around 60 cents each, it's probably a china clay chip.

    If you can represent that you have patience, you don't need to actually have patience. :wink:
