Review for 'Blue Diamond Chalk (Box of 2 Cubes)'
I have become a 'chalk before every shot' kinda guy. I have my magnetic chalk holder on my pocket and I love the 'click' I hear every time I put it back. That being said I may be a changed man. I recently changed tips on my playing cue and at the same time bought a box of Blue Diamond Chalk. After reading reviews of the various 'premium' chalks out there I knew I wasn't going to pay $30 a cube for that really high-dollar stuff but I thought I'd give this one a try. Given the price for a box of 2 was higher than what I usually pay for a box of 12 for Master chalk I admit I was a bit skeptical. However with BD chalk I apply before each rack and I'm good. I have yet to miscue under these conditions. I did try and see how long I could go when I first got the chalk and I was able to run through almost three full racks of balls using a lot of English before I miscued. The only time I ever need to chalk in the middle of a game now is if I need a little more time to think about a shot or clear my head. Is this chalk more expensive than what I have used in the past? Yes. Is it mile-high Lamborghini priced? No. And given that I am only chalking my cue a fraction of the times per session than I previously did I can see the cost evening out greatly.
I would recommend this product to a friend.
