It depends what you want. I'm happy with it, but never planned on moving it vertically- the magnets are good enough to save the board from a nudge . It's a nice medium size and looks and feels a cut above the plastic sets lurking below. The storage built in to the board is a plus. The one thing I don't like is the quality of the felt on the bottom of the pieces themselves- I doubt it will hold up over time, but 20 minutes or so should be enough to replace it for the whole set, eventually...
Magnets not strong enough to tilt board as pictured. Made in China. Could use additional padding under open board to prevent scratching table and be more level.
I bought this set around 12 years ago at a little smoke shop. This has been my main set for all my practicing and studying my variations. Let me tell you after 12 years of everyday use ive worn my down but im proud of the wear and it still functions great, i wouldnt get rid of this thing for nothing, the grip on the magnets are great you can turn this baby upside down and shake it and the pieces stay put. there is a couple other wood magnetic sets out here and theyre probably decent, but i have put this thing through thousands of hours of sicilians to ruy's to poisoned pawns to you name it and this thing is just as good as the day i bought it, the hinges are still perfect and it still latches nicely. for all around looks ( beautiful wood pieces and board) and functionality you just cant beat this set, trust me youll have this thing from begginer to grandmaster and you will never want to part with it!
