Attractive by design, the large, detailed, triple-weight Professional Series pieces are ideal for casual or competitive play most often combined with club size vinyl roll-up chessboards.
The set includes extra Queens and soft felt bases.

As one reviewer already acknowledged, the Queens have sharp points and the black plastic is a bit prone to scratching. We find that the overall appearance of the plastic can be restored or improved with a fine grit wet/dry sandpaper. We used 1100 grit and the result was impressive.

I was skeptical when I paid so little money for this set, but it was all I could afford. Wow! I could've paid a lot more money for this set, and I'd still feel like I was getting my money's worth. This set is a great value.
Nice set with the right weight. Thoughtful Packing.
I have two of these sets now and I love them. My family joined our local chess club and everyone who has played with this set also likes them. Great weight and size, they feel very substantial and do not tip over easily like some lightweight sets tend to do. I would purchase this item again. Completely satisfied.
