Just wondering what people prefer using for chalk Blue Diamond or Master? The Blue Diamond cost about $6.00 for 2 cubes and is made by Longoni. Is it really worth the extra $$?

$6.00 for 2 cubes?

What is it, gold plated?

I've miscued with all kinds of chalk. I guess I'll have to try out this out and add it to the list.

$3.00 apiece! WOW!

When given the option, I've ALWAYS used Masters blue. It just seems to grip the tip better, and I'll have less miscues than with other types. Now, I've never tried the Blue Diamond chalk, (if it's new that is), but, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" seems to be appropriate here. Especially when you're talking 3 bux a cube.

Only if you think that a Patek Phillipe is worth the extra $$, because it keeps better time then a Timex.

If that means anything. But, then again, I'm an idiot.

I wouldn't buy it. I don't even use it. I bought a que case from Longoni in Vegas. He gave me some of their chalk. I miscued a lot with it. I have been using Masters forever. I never had a problem with it. I liked it because it was real smooth. I guess it has finer grains than masters. I had it on my table side by side with the Masters for about six months. I finally just threw it away.

FYI, Platinum Billiards did some tests with various chalk brands. You can read the results here (https://www.platinumbilliards.com/rating_chalk.php).
