John Barton is completely correct in his assessment of the Kamui chalk.... I got my cube today and it is better than any chalk I have tried to date.... I stuck it on my BK2 and started shooting stroke shots.... Not only did it not miscue but the speed to spin ratio leaves the blue diamond in the dust.....

First, I never miscue with Blue Diamond. All you have to do is chalk your tip frequently, and stroke the cue ball good.

Second, I am too cheap to EVER pay $25-28 for one piece of chalk.

Some people are willing to pay, some are not.

Regardless, the Kamui chalk is the best chalk out there for those who want the best.

Hmmm...$25 or so for some chalk??? Well now, let's see. After groceries, insurance, utilities, table time, etc., I can afford about one quarter of one peice of chalk per month. Anyone got that amount left for resale???

It'll be like the old guy picking up butts outside the bar; rifling through the trash for the wore out "good" piece of Kamui chalk.

As a dealer, I got some kamui chalk to try out so I could see for myself what all of the hype was, and it for sure is VERY different than any chalk I've ever used. It feels like I'm coating my tip with paste. I believe it will help with miscuing, but so will improving my stroke. I do think it transfers spin better though. I kind of like it but i did notice that it leaves a lot of chalk on the cue ball which I don't like at all. Anyone notice this?

The chalk is decent stuff but I did not see enough in it to change and spend that kind of money. I chalk almost every shot anyway out of habit so it should not matter. To me the price isn't even reasonable. Make it reasonable and we will talk.

This is a case of mind over money. If you got the money, you don't mind.

$25 chalk??? - 10-28-2011, 08:07 PM

I think so...., is a $3000 South West practical compared to a $300 Viking or a $75 shaft to $275 Predator.., If you cant afford the technology thats one thing..., but that doesnt make it less valuble and anything to keep people investing in our industry is a good thing....,

People who buy $25 chalk, $300 shafts, $3000 cues (my cue $1900 JW)keep us aflot dont knock them, encourage them!!

I just can't encourage a lack of common sense. But if people will pay it, so be it.

I tried to buy some from a guy I heard had some and he said I wouldn't want it because chalk would be everywhere. I'm still open tho.

That's a pretty narrow minded answer... If you check the original post you should note that I said I put it on my BK2..... Now I will grant you that you don't know a thing about me but I can fill you in....

In the 90s I found a tip called the future tip and I was hooked from day 1... It was likely the first phenolic tip seen on the market... When they went out of business I almost cried.... Fast forward almost 20 years and the BK2 is released..... I can play with it and it fits my game.... except for the fact that it is very prone to miscue.......

I bought the Kamui chalk to see if it was possibly the answer.... I spent all night hitting balls and for me it is....

So if your ego can take it I will gladly play you with my break cue, phenolic tip and all... I am pretty sure I can make up the $29 sticker price in short order even if it is only a placebo effect.... Which I can promise you it is not......

I simply voiced my opinion that I can't support what I feel is a lack of common sense for those that will pay $25 for a piece of chalk. I also said that if they want to pay it then so be it. It's ok with me. And your response is that you want to throw down a challenge to gamble?

I'm not sure what that proves about paying $25 for chalk. If you're a better player you should win no matter if you use Kamui or Masters or Blue Diamond or another other quality chalk. If it is something you like then buy it. I don't have any problem with it.

For the record my comment was in response to King T's post

So my comment really doesn't have one thing to do with you personally. If you still have a problem send me a PM and we'll work it out.
