Default 11.5 g poker chips

I'm looking to upgrade my poker chips to about 600 or so 11.5 g clay chips. Anybody got a contact for me?

I got the 11.5 "dice" stripped chips from www.5stardeal.com.
Very efficient and timely. I've also orderd some of the same chips from www.casinosupply.com. Both sites are very good.

Just one point of interest on the chips that I got and others I've read about: Some of these chips (all of mine) are slightly larger in diameter than standard casino chips, so they don't fit all the way down in a standard plastic chip rack. Barely noticable as I still use the racks. Also... for some reason, the black chips seem to be ever so slightly thicker. The makes it so I cant get 20 in a row in the rack so I have to alternate 10 black and 10 green per row to make them fit. A bit annoying, but not that big of a deal....

hth,
-Chad

I just got a set of custom clay chips from PokerChips.com.
You should check out their website; they have samples of custom clay chips they do and I think they sell the 11.5gram ones too. I bought 400 clay chips with edge spots, they are about 9 or 10 grams and are nice chips, with a nice case it ran about $280 with shipping.
The only thing is be prepared to wait, they say 6 weeks, for mine it was 2 months.

I just placed an order with pokerchips.com for custom clay chips with edge spots. I got samples from both pokerchips.com and chipco.com. If you email them they will mail you out samples and you'll have them within a week.

From what I have read those dice/suit/diamond chips you see for sale all over are not clay, but do feel nice and are heavy. (Do a search in the home forum for "clay chips" and you can read about others opinions of the dice/suit/diamond chips and others.)

i hear a lot about people wanting 11.5 gram chips.. but i have played with some that other people have, and they suck. they seem metallic almost, i dunno.. also for instance, the chips at foxwoods, i doubt they are 11.5 grams, but they are excellent and i'd love to have my own set of foxwoods style chips. my point is i don't think it's all about the weight.

An alternative is TR King and Co or something like that. Google it to be sure. I ordered from them about 2 weeks ago. They have custom chips with edge spots which I think are key. Pokerchips.com definitely has the nicest ones I've seen of all places, most variety, real clay and a whole lot of options, but as another poster alluded to the wait time is very long. TR King said they would fill my order in 3 weeks, so I went with that. Reasonable prices.

The jury is still out, though, since I haven't gotten the chips yet. I can tell you more if you want when I get them.

I got my poker chips from

These are the real deal! Clay!!! non of this plastic composite cr*p with a metal insert. They run about 0.45/chip but worth it in the long run!

The ones on e-bay are not real clay. They have the metal insert in them to give them weight. Careful what you order

I agree. Neither of the samples I got, which are both the real deal casino-quality chips, are that heavy. They are both in the 9-10 gram range. I think they intentionally make those plastic composite with metal insert chips heavier than the real clay chips because many people will incorrectly assume that heavier is better.
