Billiard chalk for sale. I would like to recommend some great cue chalk to you:

It is well known that there are 4 major stick chalk brands in the world. They are Master chalk, Triangle chalk, Silver cup chalk, Brunswick chalk. People say they are best billiard chalk. But I recommend you not only include them.

1.MASTER chalk. MASTER billiard chalk has large particles and will give the player a matte feel when used. There are about 150 pieces in a box. It’s embarrassing that I can’t remember the specific number. I think MASTER chalk has only one disadvantage. That is, large-sized chalk may stain billiard table cloth. If you are the owner of the billiards hall, you need to pay attention to this issue.

2.Brunswick chalk. Cue chalk has two colors: blue and green. Chalk particles are more delicate than MASTER. Its matte feel is lower than MASTER. It is cheap and the performance is good.

3.Silver Cup chalk. It is said that Silver Cup chalk was once hailed as the worst quality chalk. Some pool billiards players think it is not suitable for themselves. But now Silver Cup chalk has been improved in all aspects. You might consider using it.

4.Blue diamond chalk. The blue diamond feels that the particles are more delicate than the golden crown. It is expensive. I won’t buy it. Yet it is popular in some countries. Cue stick chalk particles are small. There are generally 25 small boxes in a large box, that is, 25 chalk.

5.LAVA volcanic lava mud chalk. Its particles are smaller than Brunswick chalk. But its particles are larger than blue diamond chalk. This chalk is easy to apply.

6.NIR chalk. It has two colors: blue and green. It is oily chalk. Chalk is more delicate than blue diamond chalk.

Purchase Notes

The chalk you choose should refer to the color of the pool table cloth. The color of cue chalk is the same as the color of billiard table cloth. Because when you play a billiard game, chalk will stain the table cloth. If the color is different, the chalk will easily stain the table cloth. It is also difficult to clean up, and it looks unsightly. So try to choose billiards chalk with a color similar to the table cloth.

Snooker billiards table cloth is usually green. Therefore, snooker players choose green chalk snooker. If you choose red chocolate powder to play snooker billiards. Then the referee is busy. Considering that billiards is a gentleman’s sport, it is not gentle enough for the referee to wipe the table continuously.

The pool billiards mostly uses blue pool table cloth. So pool players mostly use blue pool table chalk. The entertaining pool table also has red, black, or even orange pool table cloth.

Oil chalk and powder chalk are different when they hit the cue ball. I think oil chalk is more comfortable than powder chalk. Especially players use harder tips. Sometimes I feel that the powder is not easy to spread evenly on particularly hard skin. Some friends say that oil chalk has greater friction than powder chalk. The oil chalk is easy to make a strong rotation. My experience is to use billiard cue chalk once out of 4 shots.

Chalk particle size

The cue chalk formula of each brand is different. So, the particle of cue chalk is also different.

Some cue stick chalk particles are large. Players will feel a matte texture when using large particles of cue chalk. Some pool table chalk particles are small. I think the choice of cue chalk depends on personal preference.

How to choose cue chalk?

Players often ask me how to choose cue tip chalk. Don’t jump to conclusions before you make further discussion. The purchased cue chalk should be used for some time. After all, there are many brands you can try in this world. But I can still give you two opinions.

1. If you use cue chalk of different brands. As an old player, at first, you will find that chalk and cue tips are not very compatible. But after a period of use, cue chalk is suitable for your cue stick.

2. The new chalk surface is hard. So, it is impossible to judge the quality of the chalk from the appearance. The hard surface applied to the cue stick gives the player a bad feeling. Players need to use up the outermost layer of chalk.

More facts about billiard chalk.

About distinguishing chalk from true. I have two ways:

1. You have been using cue chalk from the same brand and the same source of the sale.

2. You can judge by touching fingers when you get the chalk. You touch the chalk with the index finger. Excellent chalk will leave a lot of powder on your fingers. Players can judge the particle size of chalk powder in this way. Fake chalk does not leave a lot of powder on your fingers.

Now TAOM chalk made in Finland is used by some professional players. The worker makes the billiard chalk by hand.

Chalk has two colors. Blue and green are designed for pool billiards and snooker billiards.

It has some advantages: no miss cue, low offset, no contamination with pool table cloth, and no contamination with pool table cue. It is said that its service life is twice that of ordinary cue chalk.
