With the high quality of the pieces along with its size and weight, our Professional Series Plastic Chess Set is without a doubt the very best value in our store or that you will find anywhere. This is a heavy-duty set with a king measuring 4.125" tall and with a base of 1.875". The pieces are triple weighted with all 34 pieces weighing in at over 4 pounds. The Professional is an attractive Jaques-like Staunton design with a graceful profile and pieces that are big and heavy. The knight has a level of detail that looks great but you won't have to worry about breaking anything off. The queen has an unusually sharp pointed coronet, the rooks are tall and beefy, and the bishops have a large slotted miter. We include two extra queens for pawn promotion. An unbeatable value at $24.95!

This is a very nice set. The weight of the pieces is very good. Nice solid set. My only issue is that the queen’s crown is very sharp. I’m not sure this set would be suited for speed games.
These are some really nice peices. Solid nice strong peices.
This is an excellent set for the price, pieces appear pretty durable.
Two minor "nit picks"
1. I wish the base fabric was a bit thicker, but I can fix that myself in time.
2. One of the rooks and a couple of pawns have small holes in them, not sure what happened there.
Overall though I am pleased with the purchase.
This set is nothing short of awesome.The pieces are heavy and durable.The best set I have ever owned.Fits my extra large squares perfectly.
Nice & heavy! Great for club & tourneys. Only problem is getting the extra queens in my (20 year) old chess bag. ;)
I'm so glad the chess store had these colors available. I've been looking for months and I just had to order them. The size of the pieces are just right for the floppy boards. The Weight of the set feels Double Weighted, and is perfect for any type of game, especially if your the type to slam pieces. Best $20 bucks I've ever spent.
