          I have to say that this dark green is the bees kness when it comes to laminated tips .

          I have tried it on a talisman and kamui and the coverage is excellent with just one chalk .

          With the light stuff i literally had to colour in my kamui tip but this stuff sticks like **** to a blanket .

                Well it was 20 odd years ago
                Lep chalk was suppose to have an anti static ingredient, so as not to stick to the cue ball supposedly reducing heavy contact.
                judging by the amount of kicks on the telly, they should bring it back

                  The Problem with the Dark Green Original Triangle Chalk is Sometimes it leaves Dark Marks on the Cueball, Thats why they Changed the Colour to Lighter Green Triangle Chalk which doesn't Show up on the Cueball.

                  Please be Aware thou there are Lots of Dark Green Traingle Chalk on the Market which are FAKES!!

                    That's right, I remember reading that thread, and if I remember correctly it stated that the triangle was made with less silicone and so stuck less well than the Master which was made more specifically for US pool where they used more hard tips which needed a chalk which "stuck" more easily.

                    I can't find the bloody thread either though!

                      yes! thats the one im talkin about :P

                      i use the hardest pro granite i can find, and to be honest, master chalk does stick a tad better. thats my honest opinion. if u dont believe me, go on ebay, buy 6 cubes for 3 pounds, and try it for yourself. it just sticks nice even layer, with a simply brush on stroke.

                      found the post btw :P

                        I have some Tan coloured Master chalk. It sticks well to the tip and gets an even coverage more easily than triangle. But I don't thin kit makes me any better or worse. I've a long way to go before chalk will make the difference.

                          Recently I have tried the Silver Cup chalk, and it holds the tip quite well. Similar to Master. No copy yet. There are plenty of faked Triangle and Master in Asia
                          It's in the Shaft

                            I have posted some of these before, but seeing as this is about chalk, I thought it would fit in. Talking about fake Triangle chalk, I guess this has gone on for some time. Years ago (early 1900’s) Spinks started manufacturing their chalk with a perforated S. This was to distinguish it from the counterfeit that was being produced. I am going through the boxes of chalk that I have in storage and came across a number of old Triangle and Master. I will be giving them a try to see if there is a noticeable difference. I do have some of the anti-static chalk that someone has mentioned, but due to its age I won’t be giving it a try. I have included a Pinky Chalk Holder. When your hand was placed flat on the table the holder sat upright. It would swing down into the palm of your hand when chalking. Also does anyone know if Bulldog Chalk is still being made? As I’ve stated before, it has the best advertising logo, “It Bites And Holds On”. One tidbit, if my memory serves me right, chalk was discovered accidentally, when a cue brushed up against a stucco ceiling. It was discovered before the invention of the tip and was sold as Magic White Power. Seeing as this Forum originates in Europe, I thought the NAAFI chalk was appropriate. Sorry for the size of the pics.
