    The waistcoat I use was tailor-made and I asked the tailor to put in stronger cloth in the pockets and also I don't use the waistcoat all that much but I have been using it for around 7-8 years now with no problems. I think the problem with jeans is the pockets are tight and the chalk gets some fairly sharp edges which eventually cut the jean pockets up.

    Now that I'm back practicing I use the Coutts pouch every day for 3-4 hours and it is serving me well.

      Thanks Terry, suppose if you were handy with a needle and thread you could add a bit of reinforcement to your jeans back pocket. Wouldn't be difficult to stitch in a wee bit of leather. Maybe Levis need to bring out special jeans for snooker players.

        3. Leather pouch GOOD, but doesn't fit in cue case.

        I have had pouches from Aurora, Coutts and Ton Param and am using the Coutts one at present. It doesn't fit in my case very well however I just turn it around and hook it on my pocket and put just the chalk in the cue case.

        I also like a waistcoat with pockets as we have to wear them over here in some tournaments and that solution works very well but who wants to wear a waistcoat all the time?
        Chesworth cues do a smaller one, or at least they used to?

          The only issue for me with leather pouches , is that as they are quite big they don't fit into my cue case .

          So i bought one of the metallic Maximus ones [ 15 from Green Baize] . If you use it correctly , you can eliminate a lot of the click click noise . And it fits into my case .
          Please let me know if any leather chalk pouches fit in the case. I have magnetic ones but not using them.

              I have a magnet in my back pocket with a magnetic square glued to the chalk. No mess. No wearing out pockets. No noise.

              It is one of those extra strong disc magnets and comes in a pack of three with a 1" square magnetic piece I glue to the chalk.

                Hello my first post on TSF. Just finding my way around some very useful information on here. Regarding chalk holders I made my own from some brass sheet it protects the chalk in the watch pocket on my jeans and protects the chalk.
                I took a couple of photo's but i'm not allowed any attachments.
                Just a ( very late) beginner here, only get a frame at weekends in the local workies although i prefer to practice when I get the chance.

                John.
