Got CHALK? I DO! THE TOP 3 CHALKS! - 07-02-2018, 11:58 PM

I agree for the most part that most chalks are more or less the same...
Masters, Blue Diamond, Predator, OB, Mezz etc.

BUT 3 Chalks Stand out from the Pack!

#1) G2 Chalk (This stuff grabs a hold of whitey like Miles Davis!!)
#2) Toam Chalk (goes on hard and stays there!)
&
#3 Magic Chalk (It's the best of the above Masters Type Chalks!)

Also Check out Corley's Magnetic Chalk Clamp Holder, HANG ON TO YOUR PRICEY CHALK!
ALSO ALL ABOVE CHALKS HOLD BETTER TO... Precision Tips by Sir Dennis Searing of the 4th Degree!

A poor man's comparison of Predator, Master, and Brunswick Blue Chalks......

Brunswick chalk is usable, and is very similar to Master, However, Master gives me slightly better tip coverage. Master works well, and is so inexpensive for a box of 12, why use any other chalk in its price range?

The good comparison is between Predator and Master. I can take more shots after chalking with Predator chalk. 4 to 6 shots, with confidence, every time. I can get 2 to 3 shots with Master chalk.

I like both brands. If I was playing for money, I'd use Predator chalk. Predator goes in my cue case. Master stays out for everyone at the table. Nothing wrong with Master. Nobody complains about using Blue Master, unless their felt isn't Blue.

Just a poor man's opinion. I am still curious about other chalks, though.


Favorite Cues:
Meucci Pro Series
1990s Viking

I'm changing my top 3 to:
#1 Kamuai's Roku Chalk ( I never liked any of there products before)
#2 Toam's new Pyro Chalk
#3 G2

So just a slight change, and one newcomer!
That's great White is Awesome but messy, big chunks tend to fall off!

Honestly the only thing that matters to me is how it feels on the tip and how messy it is. Chalk won't make the difference between a good hit or a miscue.
