    Re: sneak peak

    These look so good. When you receive them, we need a family shot - you mention a V4 but I can only recall V2s of some of your chips - need to see all the variations/sets, primary, secondary, tertiary and ?quandry:)? in a massed splashed pot.

    Re: sneak peak

    That 25 chip is beyond awesome. (I think my 25 chip shares those colors, so I may be a little biased... but mine certainly doesn't share that awesome pattern!)

    And, as I've mentioned in another thread, I LOVE the 312318A pattern. Amazing.

    Re: sneak peak

    It's hard to argue with the masses...the $25 chip is awsome. I also really like the $10 chip.

    Very nice set!

    TY MD and all ASM for an outstanding job!
    Awesome chips right out of the starting gate :)

    yes, the family shot is needed to clear up 3 production runs and V1-V4 of some chips.
    in the end, I have one extra rack of the $100's and perhaps one sub-set cash set to selloff :embarras:
    but it was fun to do and in the end I'm happy.

    1) at 1st i thought the gray was darker than expected, i pulled out 5 yeat old solid grays and lt-blues and the gray pairs up perfectly; i think the black/charc spots create some eye-illusion making the base look like it has a hint of pale-blue.
    It's a very nice effect
    2) TYVM (i guessed if i used them all I'd hit one good one :laugh: )


    here they are:

    notes:
    $1000 orig mock was ArcY w Charc/ImpBlue but I changed it.
    $500 was made last year and is more in theme with the orig V1 (i used std-Yellow (but canary/R-lavU's may have been they way to go))
    Very happy with DG-G/R-G combo (I was anxious about the contrast (too much? no it's perfect))
    More on the rest later.
    Once the family is posted you may see a method to my madness.

    megashots are below for those with chip fetishes (I think it takes 3 clicks on the shot to full size it) :
    EDIT: added 1 (smaller) shot w $100cog below

    Been a big fan of your set since I first started seeing it in you signature... and it's getting even better. So I take it that the picture on the left is a scalable cash set and the one on the right is your tourney set?

    Could you comment on your choice of having a $5, $10, $50, $100 mix on the cash side?

    Congrats on a beautiful set. Ditto on the excellent color/spot choices.
    I nominate your chips for the next chiptalk calendar!

    The original set had .25 1 5 10 only for .25/.50, .50/1, 1/2 NL.
    10 because you can have 2x the number of 20's in play (and I like odd denoms and more chips in play)
    (and if I can get a 5/10 limit game going I couldnt bear just using 5's/1's).
    Oddly enough, I never did a 2 or 2.50 for the set; but added the .50 and glad I did).
    The 50 was thrown in as a V1 adder because I wanted an orange chip, because it was odd, I felt it worked better with the original old-school theme (especially after the 10), and it at least had a slim chance of being used.
    I only did the 100cog for kicks as a deranged chip junkie :happy:
    (and because when I did V2 chips, I doubled all of the denoms ; so one rack of $100 would better balance it all out as a fully flexible/splitable set).
    But mostly because I'm a chip-nut.

    I plan to play in my first WSOP event this year. I have copied these pics to my iPad, which I plan to bring with me to the tables.

    F**k the bracelet. I need to win enough to replace my current chip set, so I can utilize that $25 chip. Thanks for the inspiration, EmptyPocs! :)
