The older USCF plastic pieces are nice but these are not proportioned correctly. The knights need more bulk and are much too thin. They look like they don't belong with the other pieces. The rooks are also too small when compared to the other pieces. The weighting is nice and the rest of the pieces are well made. If you want a knock around set I would get the regular single weighted pieces and if you want a set for tournament play I would upgrade to a nicer set.

Solid chess pieces with a classic design. Look best on a traditional vinyl tournament board. Was completely satisfied.
These are the best triple weighted pieces you can find on the internet for the cheapest price. Other triple weighted sets are likely to be overpriced or have the weights improperly inserted, so that they rattle inside. Get these.

The chess pieces were lighter than other triple weighted chess pieces. Pay a little more and get a better made pieces. You do get what you pay for.

This chess set is the same as the single weight (which is a good deal): tough plastic, hollowed. If you are playing indoors, you do not need triple weighted.

What makes it "triple weighted" is a metal weight placed in the bottom with glue and a thin cloth bottom. So, if kids are heavy-handed with the pieces, it is only a matter of time before the weight falls out.

A better idea would be to seal the bottom with the same tough plastic that the entire thing is made from (if you are going to use the one weight method).

Again, if you are not playing in windy conditions, you don't need triple-weighted; and you cannot possibly be interested in this set for any reason other than the utility of it's weight.

I noted that a previous reviewer had complaints about the proportions of the knights. The knights are fine. These pieces are solid, tournament, triple weighted plastic pieces. Perfect for outdoor play in breezy conditions. Perfect for thumping down on the board when you have your opponent in zugzwang..

We liked the size of the pieces and solid weighted feel. The extra queen is a nice touch too. Great value. We would buy again if we need replacements in the future.

Bought this as a Christmas present for my grandson. Love the weight and feel of the pieces. His dad was very impressed with the quality. Now they will have a set at each house.
