Is there an update for buying high quality poker chips?

I checked the FAQ thread and there was quite a bit on chips and how to buy them. A lot of the websites are no longer in service so I wanted some more recent advice on it. I'm looking for top of the line chips (Like Paulsen quality even though they don't make Paulsen anymore). Where is the best place to get these?

You can find all sorts of high end options here:

There are more sets being offered up that I have seen in years. The prices are pretty good now as well.

Bet you can't just buy one set . . . . I couldn't

Best spot to go for current chip reviews is Hobbyphilic on YT.

Heres what I can tell you since I got my samples last night.

-The china clays you must oil with mineral oil, the difference is night and day. From the factory they are dull.

-You have to get samples. What I liked least online ended up being one of my top choices when they got here.

-The Monaco Paulsons dont have perfect QC, one of the inlays is quite off.

I got Majestics, Dunes, Milanos and Monacos. The 3 china clays quality wise seem the same to me. The Monacos instantly seemed higher. I think its a lot to do with the sharp edges The sharp edges, bright white and crisp colors are what I liked most about the Monacos.

My top 2 of the samples are the Monacos and Majestics. I like the bright/bold colors of the Majestics, especially the .50 and $25. The Dunes and Milanos tied for least liked. The first impression was 100% to buy the Monacos but now that I slept on it the decision is harder. It seems like a toss up between Majestics and Monacos. If the Monacos didnt have QC issues it might be an insta-call, but I have weeks to decide so Im gonna wait and see.

If you want Paulsons, keep an eye here: https://www.pokerchipforum.com/forums/the-chip-room.21/

Jim from The Chip Room sells retired Paulson Casino chips at very reasonable prices. It doesn't get better than that.
