View Full Version : Chalk

I've always thought Master had the best chalk, but at a recent tournament I witnessed an older very experienced player hiss at the blue Master chalk at the table. He said it was a block of crap in so many words. Is this not the best chalk out there? I have also tried Silver Cup but didn't like it.

I have been to different pool halls with the same chalk, and have the chalks stay on the tip much much more differently. I think that it all depends of the humidity, like different brands work differently then others.

I am open minded enough to give any NEW chalk a try.. but I still keep coming back to MASTERS.. most good players do..

I've never heard anyone call Master's blue a "piece of crap". I think that it is excellent chalk. Myself? I prefer the triangle blue chalk, but I can't really say why.
-known to microwave chalk and other wierd stuff that won't be mentioned!
You have a point there Jordan. The humidity sometimes makes the chalk mushy for lack of a better word. It doesn't cover the tip as well as when it's dry.
Speaking of chalk, you ought to see ants try to get out of a piece of worn chalk. Try as they might, their stuck!
When you get really bored you learn this stuff.

My guess would be, after a significant period of time, that you could watch the ant fossilize !!!
I've always been told that the chalk is to help us play better pool, but I'm not so sure. When I'm shooting at the pocket, but I hit the rail instead, there is no doubt in my mind that it's the fault of the chalk. I may try some Sportscreme or something on my cue tip.
Dan, one night my bartender and I was finishing up after closing. She was wiping down the rails and noticed 2 or 3 ants trying to climb up the slope in a peice of chalk. They could get part way but then their legs would just slip in the powder. Were both easily intertained.

And I thought I was hard-pressed for some cheap entertainment. Actually kind of a funny story.

Try some Triangle chalk. It is the best I have ever used.
