Kamui chalk make a difference for the average player? - 08-04-2016, 11:09 AM

I'm new to playing pool after many years. I don't don't play in a league, or even with other people. Pool is a stress reliever for me.

I've been watching videos & products & came across this 20 minute video on chalk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imkX...pvZaSk&index=6

Kamui is (according to this) very different than other chalk. My question is, "Is it going to make That much difference in MY game to make it worth the $28.00?"

Thanks for the info. I'm not finding it in the websites I'm looking at. Can you send me a link when you get a chance? Thanks!

Look in the for sale section.
Magic chalk is very good.

Still straighter than 90 % of all Meucci cues ever made
"Russian Magic Chalk- good enough to steal".

Russian Magic chalk is the nuts.
Its so good my last and only cube was stolen off the table when I went to the bath room.
They left my $1000 cue but stole my chalk, how strong is that?

Look up what Dr. Dave has written about chalks....then decide what you want.....but remember this...
if you chalk every shot, then any chalk will perform equally. Just make it a point to chalk on every shot.

I chalk before every shot as part of my routine, so the free chalk is fine for me.

TAOM Chalk puts just a thin layer of chalk on your tip, which lets your $30 tip do its job. Some people cake it on so thick they could be playing with anything!
The Toam chalk takes some effort to get on but lets my Dennis Searing PerciSion Tip grab the ball like it should. And surprisingly the Chalk stays on the tip and not on the CB, or table or all over the place! The Only Chalk that had made a difference in my game.


All is Grace,

Uh, no. Most over-hyped/priced gimmick in years. Magic at 5bux/cube is the nuts. My buddy asked Efren about chalk at DerbyCity. Efren just chuckled and said he used whatever was on the table. Oh yeah, and use it on every shot. Pretty good advice from the best ever.
