Try a few of each, then come back and tell us what you think.

haha, no, seriously, before we can give you advice on this subject, we need a lot more information from you.

Do you use a 4 or a 5 piece stick? Are all the rings in place, or have you removed some of them?

Is the nylon wrap slippery to your hands? This makes a big difference.

Is there a naked lady or a race car logo on the butt of the stick? We have found that those sticks will shoot best with the red or tan chalk.

On the Lizard sticks or those with beer logos, the blue and green seem to give the most consistent results.

The type of chalk isn't nearly as important as the color.

If you use a "house" stick, you should use "house" chalk, as that is specially formulated for those cues.

If your stick says "Bonzai" on the forearm, you shouldn't use chalk at all, as it will get on the letters and make them unreadable.

As a last resort, you can do a google search on "chalk".
