VERY VERY POOR QUALITY PRODUCT!
on 14 March 2013
I realise this is a fun/ toy item, but for an item over £100 and advertised as "Luxury" and "limited edition", it is seriously lacking.
First off, the "Aluminium" case is actually plastic with a aluminium ring and handle attached. The "limited edition" plaque on the case, is of cheap look and feel and had fallen off the case and was loose in the packaging (which was also damaged, by the way).
Why you need locks on a toy poker set, I don't know, but if they exist, surely they should work! The latches themselves are of such poor quality, they don't even shut together properly. Probably the reason one of them was open as I pulled the case out of the packaging. You can spin the locks with your finger nails, so as I insinuated, pointless!
The flimsy plastic tray within the case was cracked and broken, which is not surprising, with the weight of the contents.
The substantial weight to the whole item is obviously due to the chips themselves. Which have a lovely feel to them, being so weighty, but this is the only plus to the whole set. Although they have this nice heavy feel to them, the chips still look like a cheap plastic token. And the centres are merely a plastic sticker.
VERY disappointing, for a "LUXURY, LIMITED EDITION" poker set! I will be returning for a refund immediately. Safe in the knowledge that I can buy another set of the same quality for a quarter of the price.
