For those unfamiliar with chalk, this magnesium carbonate-based powder is used as a drying agent to improve grip in rock climbing, weight lifting, and gymnastics. There are a few differences in the types of chalk available and the way that chalk is delivered. First, this is pure magnesium carbonate without any other additives. Some other manufacturers have antiperspirant additives to attempt to reduce sweating from the palms, but this can lead to chapping of the hands. If you sweat excessively from the hands, you may require the additional antiperspirant additives that other manufacturers include to ensure adequate grip strength. If you do not perspire too much from the hands, pure magnesium carbonate is the way to go. Once you've decided on that, next is the delivery method.

1. Chalk shot ("chalk sock" "chalk ball"): this product reviewed is a chalk shot, meaning the chalk is contained within a porous material that allows some chalk to come out when you squeeze or pat the ball on your hand. The advantages of this are twofold: one, you get the right amount of chalk rather than over-chalking which is wasteful; two, since the chalk is contained, it minimizes release of chalk dust into the air, which keeps everything more clean and less irritating to the airways. This is my preferred chalk delivery method. The main disadvantage of this method is that the chalk does not coat the hand as fast because it's slower than just dipping your hand into a bag of powdered chalk. This can be an issue for rock climbers who need to quickly re-apply chalk during a climb (timed competitions). This is probably what you should buy if you're climbing indoors, since minimizing dust is important -- the other climbers will be appreciative.

This chalk is good chalk. Get it if you need chalk. Not recommended for drawing on sidewalks. That is a different type of chalk.

The product works as described. It is chalk. If you know what chalk does, you know what this product does. That's twenty words.

These work well and minimize mess. As joyous as it may be to toss chalk in the air or snort a line of it prior to deadlifting; some gyms choose to impose ridiculous regulations upon their members. I have not noticed any loss in gains by utilizing these chalk balls. I do miss filming myself lifting in a cloud of chalk but sacrifices must be in the worship of Brodin.

I go rock climbing all the time at an indoor gym and I hate spending $3.50 on a small chalk bag, I saw a few select employees using loose chalk (even though it's banned but go figure). They said it stays on your hands longer than the normal chalk they sell behind the counter, and boy were they right. Even when I sweat the chalk won't fade away as easily as other ones I've tried. To top it all off the chalk will come off easily after you wash your hands.

Five Stars, that's for sure. Great product!

I want to give 5 stars because I like how the chalk flows through the fabric; while climbing I don't want to put my hand in a mountain of chalk, and when I squeeze this I get the right amount of chalk I need. Great.

I like this chalk shot. It gets just the right amount of chalk on my hands, and doesn't clog up or leak.

I was looking for replacement chalk when I found this pack of black diamond stuff. Each chalk ball is packed with their good quality chalk. The balls themselves are stiff at first but that's perfectly normal. If you massage them, then after a few climbing sessions they'll be broken in. The chalk itself is very fine and not grainy which is what I prefer and it has no problem drying my hands out. The tube that the chalk balls comes in also works nicely as a container for the ones that you aren't using.
