I think I could, but I'm kind of a chalk connoisseur
And yes, I have MOST brands in my house for personal "testing" to see how they play. I just bought some Morakami Chalk. Eh, not bad. Very similar to Blue Diamond. Miscued at about shot 9.
In my haste I meant by using not appearance, chalk is like tips (imo) personal preference I know
With all the discussion of chalk pros and cons,I was wondering with no manufacture label just a blue cube how many can determine it too be their chalk of choice or brand ; shape of chalk all the same.
Last week I gave Mike Massey one of my home made pocket chalkers .
First thing out of his mouth after he thanked me was what kind of chalk was in the holder.............................
So for those who think all chalk is the same, Mike Massey doesn't.........
I don't know why but I was surprised he asked that question so quickly.
I was lucky the brand name he like the best was already in the holder..
So if you ever see Mike Massey using a chalk holder,,, I made it :grin: and I think he is one hell of a nice guy
I can tell the difference between
Free and Not Free. (Buy chalk or use whatever's on the table)
But seriously, how meaningful is a test of "how many hits can I go before I miscue?" This isn't the Indy 500 where it's important how long your tires last, because there's no penalty for chalking between every shot. It would make a difference if we played Speed Pool but I'm too old for that.
Does it really matter how many shots you can make without re-chalking though?
If you chalk regularly you are still able to buy 12 pieces of regular master chalk for the price of 1 exotic piece.
