My friends and I do some heavy weightlifting in another friend's garage. We were running into issues on a hot day with sweat slicking up our hands and making it hard to hold the bar. So we decided we need some chalk, but we didn't want to leave chalk dust all over the garage.

This Eco Ball was *perfect*. It gave us the grip we need, and didn't leave chalk marks all over the floor, equipment, or us. It doesn't even really show up on your hands. The ball is especially useful for keeping the dust under control. I have a feeling that even if I got this kind of chalk outside of the ball form, it would get everywhere.

So, I don't know about rock-climbing, but for weightlifting, this little Eco Ball gets the job done. When we finally use up the one we have, I will definitely be getting another one.

I've been using this for a while now for olympic weightlifting and for indoor rock climbing. The powder works well to dry your hands and give you a good grip. My only complaint is that the ball is not very forthcoming with the powder, you have to smack it pretty hard a couple of times to get a good amount of powder. That's fine if you're just in the gym casually powdering up before a lift, but if you're climbing and don't have both hands available to give it a good clap then it's just slightly inconvenient and not ideal. Though, this is probably just part of the function of trying to keep it from being too messy so I guess it's just doing it's job. Also, if you're hoping that this is non-marking as advertised so you can use it in a gym that doesn't allow chalk, be warned. It will leave white residue on the bar after a couple sets. It is unarguably a lot less messy and marking than normal chalk, but it will still be there to some degree. I guess just try to do your sets and then give the bar a quick wipe before any nit-picky gym guys spot the faint white marks and get upset. Though, it won't drop anything on the ground and the problem is mainly on dark finished or oxidized steal bars, so if you were to use a nice chromed bar you will probably be in the clear. In any case, if you're trying to use barbells and get some serious training done and the gym doesn't like chalk, you might wanna consider ditching that pansy gym and find a real place to workout. And go ahead and tell them you're leaving them because they're a pansy gym, it'll be funny.

Anyway, overall a fairly clean and good product, just not perfect and with some draw backs.

Being a CrossFit gym we are big on using chalk with pretty much all the Olympic lifts and with the pull-up bars. After months of daily cleaning off chalk on the bumper plates, floor, and pull-up bars something needed to change. The average lifter who is just beginning to use chalk doesn't understand that they are not Lebron James or that they don't have to chalk every time they go near a bar.

So out of desperation we tried the Metolius Eco Chalk and it is fantastic! It leaves very little residue even for the client who pounds it in his hands and creates a mushroom cloud. It is sticky and does work well on sweaty hands. As mentioned in the other reviews...it does dry your hands out. While it is a more expensive that a chalk bag it is a far better solution for a gym setting.

Bought this for pole dancing-I am an Instructor. Often my students need something to reduce the sweat on their hands which impedes their grip. This product seemed to work fine. Doesn't leave a grit on the pole like the antihydral creams do.

I am a traditional, barbell weight/powerlifter. There are a few specialty gyms in my area that cater to purist lifters like me, and where traditional chalk would be welcome. I don't have a membership at one of those gyms. They're too far away and inconvenient.
I attend a family gym that doesn't allow chalk. Too messy and perhaps too intimidating to some of the patrons. But not using chalk can be a real problem when lifting heavy.
I bought an Eco Ball last fall. Brought it in and showed it to gym management; showed how it wasn't like the other stuff. They gave me a thumbs up. I've been using it ever since and I'm very happy with it.
With a little effort you can press enough chalk out of the bag to create a visible layer on your hands. Or get just enough to take the slickness off your hands.
Whatever your preference, the chalk helps tremendously with grip. It's allowed in my "no-chalk" gym. It's convenient to carry around. It costs about the same as a McDonald's Happy Meal and should last for months. I don't have a complaint.

This stuff is great for pole dancing. There are other grips out there specifically for pole dancing, but they're very expensive for what you get. This little ball for under $4 gives you a lot of grip for not a lot of money. It gives you a good amount of grip with no residue on the pole. I suggest it to all my fellow polers.

I'm using this at the gym, not on the climbing wall, as "real" chalk was turning out to be too messy.

Some observations:
-Cleaner than my old chalk hunk in a bag
-Less (visible) mess. My gym is gracious about chalk usage, but if yours isn't, this would probably be stealthy enough if you're discreet
-Seemingly more drying power than the chalk I had been using, so I use less
-Does dry the hands just like it says it will. Not a big deal for me personally
-Way easier to manage in a fabric bag instead of the plastic baggie it comes in. The purple bag everyone's favorite whiskey comes in would be about the right size.

Edit: by way of update this is still going strong for me as of October 2013. I'd say the longevity--for lifters anyway, is excellent.
