    Each used block will have plenty of use left in it .
    It's only worth what value the buyer puts on it and of course the supply. If members are willing to pay this kind of money for used chalk then it must be good.

      It is on certain tips , others it will offer no benefits from the light triangle .

        It's a pity they've stopped producing the dark green ones for some reason. The rest are too powdery and doesn't cover a laminated tip properly. I think I have a dozen or so left but they're not for sale... Once they're gone, well, they're pretty much... gone...

          (Later Edit) I tested this chalk this morning and found it to be much too hard even though the colour is perfect for snooker although it does show on the cueball a bit more than the lighter traingle dark green. I do NOT recommend this chalk as if I didn't remember to carefully chalk up before a deep screw shot I would mis-cue. When I switched to the triangle no more mis-cues on the same type of shots.

          For layered tips there is another type of chalk, Silver Cup, which is not made by Tweetens but rather somewhere in Georgia (USA) and it is quite a dark green and a little harder than the normal lighter green Tweetens stuff.

          I've always found the blue master chalk to be too powdery and I've also come across some very powdery Tweetens light green which might be fake stuff from the Far East.

          Over here, green chalk of any description is hard to come by as all the pool players use blue due to the blue cloths on their tables. As I have a supply of green tweetens and always carry a new spare one in my case I have to watch it as sometimes it will go 'missing' which pees me off since if someone asks I am always willing to give one up.

            Well, if it came from him, we can all learn dude! I will try and source some dark green. I have a few ideas. No promises. I reckon a pound a block for new stuff would be a decent price.

              Terry, is the silver cup dark green like the triangle dark green in terms of texture and quality?

                PP and everyone. I just tried some Silver Cup again and although the colour is darker than the triangle darker green from Tweetens I found I was mis-cueing more often with it as it's very hard and doesn't adhere well to the tip.

                As it's darker it also shows up on the cueball more just like the blue Master Chalk, so I have to take back my earlier post and definitely do not recommend Silver Cup dark green.

                I will be trying to contact Tweetens and see if I can get them to start producing a slightly darker shade of green for the snooker fraternity

                  I emailed them this afternoon; the more emails they get the better! I was thinking about the Silver Cup Terry, but will swerve it now; thanks for the tip. If I can't get dark green, it will be light green Master for me I guess? :-(

                      Morning mate. Have used Talisman, Phoenix, elk, BD+, GBL PG, and finally settled on an O'min from Flame on here. It doesn't like light green triangle, but no lammy does, due to hardness. Even blue Master is better than light green Triangle, which Terry affirms. Dark green triangle appears to be the best choice. I haven't tried the specialist chalks that the lammy tip makers manufacture. That could be my next expensive port of call I guess?

                          A crap attempt at faking light green, or a bad attempt at faking dark green chalk?

                            Quite sad either way... Fancy that, faking chalks indeed... must be in the lower rung of the counterfeiting business...

                              Easier to pass off than a fake cue?

                                Dark Green Master is still available.
