What is preflag chalk?
Isn't true the old Master pre-flag chalk contained lead, mercury and arsenic? In 1996 cases of childhood lead poisoning in Arizona and North Carolina were linked to pool cue chalk that the children had been putting in their mouths.
Who is testing the new brands of chalk?
It is a magical mixture of rare elements that cannot any longer be obtained. It is said that it heals wounds, makes the blind see, and is responsible for more balls making it into pockets than any other factor in the universe. Rumor has it that it was made by beautiful virgins in a secret location, but I don't believe that part.
The main ingredient, unobtainium, is highly sought after by NASA scientists since it is impervious to cosmic rays.
Lastly it is well known that the main ingredient is also a powerful aphrodisiac and has been known to induce wild fits of passion in women. Please use with caution.

Tweeten switched over their pigments that had lead decades ago Only a couple had lead including yellow and red. The pigmnent changeover was in the 70's or early 80's But importantly, it was way before the 9/11 Flag change.
The formula for the Masters chalks have not changed.
The yellow pigment that had lead. There are several yellow pigments.Fred.. when you say yellow.. do you mean the tan? or was there an actual yellow?
i got myself a nice little personal stockpile of the pre flag tan
Is it possible that people are comparing today's Masters to counterfeit Masters (which is one reason that led to a Flag on the wrapper to begin with). I have Masters Post Flag that I plucked out of the same box that today don't feel the same. It's non-homogeneous after all. And I"m not a bigot or homophobic.But I don't believe that they didn't change other ingredients in their chalk. I think that for whatever reasons - quality reasons, or economic reasons - they have changed the formula along the way. They probably changed things like the binder or the type/quality/proportions of the silica used. They probably didn't consider it important to inform the public of something like that.
In fact, I'm beginning to think that they changed the formula multiple times over the years. I have had "non-flag" labeled Master that was not as hard as the older Master, but not as cakey as the newer Master.
That's my theory. But I don't have any insider info to prove it, just my own keen sense of observation. It is just my opinion that my sense of observation is keen, by the way.
