Ultimate Chess Set - Triple Weighted 3 3/4" King with double queens.
We are now accepting pre-payment for the sets! We just got pictures from our manufacturer that the molds are done and we will be getting the pre-production samples November 10th. We just got the production pictures of the chess pieces in today 12-20-17. We had a slight problem at the factory...someone broke the mold. It ended up pushing us back 2-3 weeks. We are now looking to get them in the 3rd week of January. I will keep you posted.
- Triple weighted. This set weighs in at over 3.9lbs!
- Premier weighting system designed to last longer than other weighted chess sets. Additional protection to keep the weights from loosening up or falling out.
- Designed for the tournament player. 3 3/4" King with chunky pawns. Great feel while playing.
- Cream color is different than other sets off white.
- Double queens is now standard.
- Meets all US Chess Federation and FIDE world standards for chess play.
What happened with this set is now a matter of record. Our supplier of over 15 years closed their factory and took our mold with them. Probably melted the $15,000 mold down for scrap! This was over 3 years ago and we have been scrambling to get the set back in production. It's harder than you think to find a reputable factory with our high quality standards to produce such a set. Then make the set so we can still sell you the set at a reasonable price.
This chess set is finally getting produced. After 5 years of torturous struggling, the molds are being made as I write this description. We have a 30-45 day mold period followed by 1 week of samples. After the samples are approved, we have a 2 week production period. Then we have 3 days to consolidate the order in a container and 3 weeks to get it here on a boat. So we are looking the 1st or 2nd week of December for these fine items.
