Today I want to discuss the key differences between 3 of our 2’ tall chess sets, our Original 25” plastic chess set, our new 26” premium plastic chess set, and our 24” fiberglass chess set.
Our original 25” plastic chess set has become a worldwide best seller because of its durability and affordability. This set is made of high-quality durable plastic and is UV protected. This set was built to last. It can withstand the roughest of elements and most abusive play. It won’t fade in the sun, get stained from dirty hands, or break if dropped, and it requires little to no maintenance to keep it looking good.
This set is not as detailed as some of or other sets but that means you don’t have to worry about any details being broken or chipped if the piece is dropped.
This set is customizable. We can add your company logo to it or turn it into an LED set so that you can play with it all night long.
This set is perfect for high traffic areas including malls, resorts, campgrounds, cruise lines, schools, as well as backyards.
Our 24” fiberglass chess set is all class.
It is a beautiful mid-range chess set in terms of price and durability but has a high level of detail.
This set is a classic Staunton style chess set with a stunning level of detail and high gloss finish which really makes it stand out. It’s made of Fiberglass, which is a lightweight, hollow material and is in the mid-range of durability. This set won’t stain or fade from being left out in the sun.
