  • kamui chalk

    Just a quick one lads, I bought a cue with omin red tip on and I'm told that kamui chalk is what will be best for it? At £23 I'd hope it potted the balls for me but is this right or are there alternative chalks I could use as standard chalk doesn't sit well on it.

    I purchased this awhile ago just to check a piece and try it on a kamui black tip. Chalk worked great but it leaves that much on it easily sticks to the cue ball leaving blue marks. Could have been dirt/grease on balls. What I do now is when I'm preparing my tip, after scuffing I'll use the kamui chalk then scuff it again and use green triangle. Kamui gator grip good for scuffing easily. Kamui chalk cushions shot much more and only need to chalk every 4 or 5 shots. Probably reasonable value because it lasts a while.

      I may be wrong but I do not think I have ever seen any of the pro players using it ! you can buy a awful lot of Triangle or Master Chalk for £23

        Good for practising with, especially for those of us who can't be bothered to chalk. Can easily go 20 shots without rechalking. Bad for coating the cue ball.

        Overall, avoid.

            I have never met anyone lazier, that's for certain. I play without chalking until i miscue (when practising). It's surprising how many shots that can be, actually...

              The omin red are very hard, the occasional scuff every now and then is all thats needed though, no fancy chalk required

                Chaulking your cue especially before key shots encourages a good pre shot routine watch any of the top players they will chaulk the cue whilst picking out the line or observing the table. Stick to tried and tested triangle chaulk!!!!!!1

                  U can try the new colors.
                  I am using the kamui maple and there are 2 more colors available. Light Green (Forrest Green as they call it ) & Grey (Silver Grey).

                  These definitely DO NOT mark the cue ball.

                    That's interesting I used it ordinary kamui and loved the way it chalks and feels but yes it marks cue ball so I agree avoid.

                    Are you saying get a colour like white that does not show up. Cos it will still be on the White ball or are you saying it won't stick to it as much?

                      Dear Byrom:

                      I am attaching the links for you.
                      I have bought all the 3 colors of kamui and I like the maple color. It does not mark the cue ball at all.
