  • The Quest for Chalk

    Current chalk is just about at the kaput stage. So I thought I would shout out to the masses and see what the preferred option is. I think i'm currently using blue triangle chalk. Does green or blue make a difference and brand etc???

    I use to use the green triangle chalk but changed to master's green.
    Did try the pro triangle chalk but got more kicks than I've ever had so binned it...
    For that one you've always wanted...

          For hard tips Masters green is the best without a doubt

            The dye used to colour the chalk has an effect on whether it sticks to the cue ball, the darker the colour the worse it seems to be. I'm now using Master grey; now I'm not sure of this but I think it's the natural colour before any dye is used so it shouldn't stick to the cue ball as much.
            As it's grey you can't see it very well if it does, but I'm not getting as many kicks now and the tip grips the cue ball just as well as the Master green I used to use.

                Using that pro stuff, I've never had so many kinds off balls and was starting to get them almost every few frames...

                    Yes Neil. You only need one swipe across your tip and you're good to go

                      i have a hard enough time keeping the cue and my hands clean with triangle green, what would master green be like? using a grand soft which is still classed as a hard tip in my view!

                        I have found Master green crumblier than Triangle; so if you have trouble with Triangle you will have a nightmare with Master
                        I used Triangle green for many years without any trouble - I must be gentler and less often with my chalking than you* - and then went to Triangle spruce a few years ago after getting some over from the US and never looked back
                        The Triangle spruce is a bit less crumblier than the green but goes on well and stays there longer, hence less applications required.
                        Now all of the above about Triangle chalk is for pressed tips, as I have found a "generalisation" of Triangle chalk (regardless of colour) for pressed tips and Master chalk for laminated tip. Very generalised I know but that is what I have found

                        * I have a friend how grinds his chalk for every shot, sometimes twice as he thinks of the shot, so much so he has gone through three lumps (Triangle green) and two tips, for my one lump which still has lots of life in it

                            Seems Master Green is leading even though it crumbles like Flake chocolate Mmmm.
                            Goes everywhere??? Hmmm opponents eyes? Oh yeah tactical advantage

                              Will be having a look at the masters grey now..

                              Have a friend like that Dean but end up with a green hand and spins the cue at the same time, so wears the wood under the ferrule, so much that I've put new ferrules on two cues for him...
