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!

well balanced (weighted) as advertised
I ordered the professional plastic chess set with 4 1/8 King. It was everything I was expecting and came with extra Queens and is triple weighted . It is a great looking set. Thanks for selling at a great price.
The ivory colorway perfectly compliments the colour of the vinyl green and buff board. I had to sand the queen's (crown?) with sandpaper; but other than that, its amazing. Extra queens were a nice gesture.
This set is as handsome as it is nice. The pieces are bold and have a weighty appearance. The pieces are appropriately weighted and are nice to move. The size of the pieces are a little larger than "normal" pieces, but not too large to be a distraction. Highly recommend this set. The comments about the queens points are correct, but it took me about 2 minutes to file the crowns down and they look even better with the filed crowns.
Love my weighted plastic chess pieces
Good sturdy pieces. Be careful with the queens though, very sharp points at the top. Will file down a bit.
Received my chess pieces on time undamaged and was very pleased with the quality. Would highly recommend
This set reminds me of those big wooden pieces that they used to play with on old fashioned and huge cardboard chessboards back in the old days in Eastern Europe.. The set has a very substantial feel and the quality is superlative given this price range. Pieces are a joy to look at and play with.
This fine set is the one currently being used at the legendary Hastings Tournament 2009-2010 on green and white vinyl boards. You can't get more sturdy, heavy, attractive staunton style set at this price.
