Excellent travel chess set with great weighting and design
I bought this set for my travel set and it is absolutely perfect. The weighting on the pieces is enough to prevent them from falling over but still easily glides across our vinyl board.
I highly recommend this set!
A Great Set!
Great size, nice heft! Sturdy, stable, and well-weighted--I like playing with this set! I wish the queens and pawns were a bit taller, and the ramparts on the rooks were taller too--but that's a personal preference. Really an excellent set for competition!
Review byR Whut
Cheapest, heaviest, high quality plastic set around!
Fur under $20 you get a very heavy, very stable, very well proportioned Staunton-style plastic set. The only minor complaint is that the queen should be closer in size to the king. Other than that, it's perfect!
