Best weighted plastic pieces
I bought this specific Zurich set, because of the beauty of all the pieces. This series has the best looking King and Queen, the Bishop and the Knight look slightly better than most other sets, and the battlements from the rook are in the correct height unlike most other sets.
Despite this set being slightly larger than the other sets, the pieces feel very nice on an 2.25" board. Also, according to the FIDE rules, the height of the pieces may differ 10% from the standard sets with a 3.75" King. This means that this set is approved for tournaments.
So it's a great chess set which I do really recommend you to buy!
I'm very happy with the zurich chessmen set. They are very well made.
