Hi Guys!

Hope you are all doing well.

Are there any good CSB sets made in Poker Chips out there? I have had no luck in my search so far.

Thanks in advance for your input.
Yours,

Ivan

Marcello at Tango made me a poker chip set with double sided chip and a shell - red and blue.
No reason why the insert cannot be say red-green and allow effects similar to CSB.

There are some edge problems with the gimmicked chips, but easily masked in handling

PCS is the best currently out there. Scott Jenkins (who made the sets with porper) ALLEGEDLY is coming with the updated sets (I half jokingly say allegedly simply because it’s been set back after set back for a couple years. Though, In all seriousness between back problems, sick family , etc... he has every reason to focus on the other things in life and I hope he and his family are all doing better and well). But PCS is the best and a few of us have been anxiously awaiting the new sets. When they are released be prepared to immediately order bc they will sell fast like Lassen’s stuff.

I wrote to Scott about my own project with poker chips, but after telling me he was working on poker chip stuff he never followed through, so not sure he got the poker chip stuff done.

Funsway:
I made a Poker CSB by starting with a Tango Poker Chip Magnetic Scotch & Soda (Green Shell / Green-Blue Insert)
I removed the shim from the shell, Blacked the edges with Sharpie and Applied a Red Face sticker from Sucker Punch set! The Red resembles Tangos design so it works really good.
If you can get ahold some yellow or white stickers you can also make one up just with Sucker Punch. Although the Shell is less than deceiving, so it has to keep moving.

If you have Mr Tango’s ear. See if he can release His S&S with two different inserts for using for CSB as well.

Thanx
Steph

Additionally:
Airship Magic is making great Poker Chip Ramsay stack sets in Genuine Chips (both Clay and CERAMIC!)
https://airshipmagic.com/store/home/208-......esults=7

https://airshipmagic.com/store/home/206-......esults=7

What is exciting about this that they are able to CNC their chips. Eventually, they plan to branch to try Shells, Flippers and other poker chip gaffs! Maybe, they will make up a CSB type set in the future!
I sent them some of the Ceramic Chips from “The Ammo” set and made me an AWESOME Ramsay stack to use with them!!!

Cheers
Steph

I have Joe Porper's Poker Chip Surprise which is excellent I just wished I could find a better switching coin type pouch for the finish.

If your not familiar with "the traveler" it may work for you. I use it to switch 4 coins and the end of a routine.

I thought about using the Traveler for the final switch. But haven't thought of a good way that I like, to switch the chips at the end. Would love to know ow you do it.
Yours,

Ivan
