Can anyone give me a tip on a good, triple-weighted red and white plastic set?
I'm a 3.75" king size kind of guy. Helps me see the board a bit better.
wholesale Chess has a set on sale for $23.
A couple of options you may like. I will add my standard advice not to shope at thechessstore.com, they are horrible to work with. I've had only good experiences with the follwing two vendors, my only experience with thechessstore was awful.
I just finished printing my own on a 3D printer:
It's the best ever.

I, on the other hand have had good experience with the chess store, and the have good plastic sets too. But the HOS Marshal is also a good plastic set, though I have the Black and Natural pieces, there is a red and white version as we'll. And as baddogno mentioned above wholesale has fairly a good plastic set with color options. But the WC set does not have real felt bases and has mixed reviews on the red color, some like it some hate it.
I guess I'm leaning toward the Pro Set that's $50; matte finish, triple weighted.
I first thought about buying this set when it was about $30! Ouch.
