Hello everyone, I'm looking at getting a set to play with family and friends, and don't have much money to spend. I also cannot get easy access to a woodshop to make my own. Anyways, on Amazon.ca I've been eyeing this product

and am wondering if the smaller size (and weirdly sized King) will be a detriment to enjoying the game?

It depends. If you don't plan on playing in tournaments or with other peoples sets your probably fine. But if you plan on playing more seriously I would want to have the same size set as tournaments and other people are likely to have.

Personally I’m picky about my sets and would only use officially sized sets.

I concur w/ thingles. The shape and weight of the pieces changes the game - for it changes what throws are easier and which are more difficult. For fun, casual backyard games I play on the Bex set which is so different from my competitive set from JP's Backyard Games that my usual techniques don't apply thereby handicapping my competitive abilities.
