I never imagined that stones other than the cheap plastic ones I've been using could make such a huge difference. It's the look, the feel, the weight, the size, the temperature, the sound...

It was a tough decision when buying the stones, primarily because there are no stores where I live, so I had to choose by pictures, and we all know the huge gap between a picture and the real thing. I wanted good quality stones, after all they would probably follow me for the rest of my life, but I couldn't exceed my budget.

There are also so many sizes to choose from! In the end, by July this year, I decided to buy these 6brothers size 36 double convex stones from GoGameGuru for usd 75 with shipping. I had no references with regards to shape, brand or size, but I trusted the site, and I'm so happy with them!

  1. I remember the first time I got real stones. It really does make a world of difference. Glad you were able to find such a great set! The glass stones from GoGameGuru are really amazing. And they are the same ones the Korean professionals use too (which makes them even cooler!
