For weightlifting in a public gym at my college, this works pretty well. What I am trying to accomplish with this bag of chalk, as opposed to a solid chalk brick (which I use at my home gym), is to not make a mess. I do not know if my gym allows chalk, but I'd rather just not ask to avoid someone telling me I cannot use it. So I use it responsibly and without drawing attention to myself. Given the world we live in today, they would probly ask me to not use it so I do not agrivate someone's allergies around me. Its comical to think about, but people are ridiculous.
This bag of chalk gets an adequate amount on your hands, providing a significantly better grip. Someone like me really needs these benefits as my hands sweat pretty bad, especially when exerting myself in activities such as powerlifting. It is not as good as the sold chalk block but it gets the job done. As previously noted, it does a nice job at keeping things clean as long as common sense is used and you do not pound the bag into oblivion, sending clouds of chalk across the gym. The other benefit to the bag is that it will conserve the chalk a little bit longer. I have had mine for about 6 months and it is about halfway full. Not bad. At it has a drawstring closure so you can refill it and it does not leak as it keeps a tight seal.
I recommend this bag for those in this situation. If you are simply looking for the best performance, a chalk block will be a lot better as it has a much better capability to cause build up on the bar. The chalk build up helps improve grip even more.
I did empty the bag, crushed up the chalk even more and did find it worked a little better. But the results aren't particularly pleasing. It takes either tight gripping of the bag or to get better results: some sort of impact against my hand (ie throwing it) to get chalk up. Throwing it is less than ideal since I don't particularly enjoy breathing chalk.
It does work it just doesn't work particularly well. I don't think I could recommend this to anyone.
overall a nice chalk ball.
Bonus: Hoped for one that was porous enough so could just grab bag and get chalk on fingers and palms
Result: Can only get a little bit of chalk on finger tips, not palms at all. Thinking this may be due to chalk inside, will update this review once ball is refilled with GSC Gym Chalk.
Trick: Figured the trick is to have the ball up-side-down in the bag so that a little bit of the chalk will trickle into the bag when the ball is moved so can grab ball and get plenty of chalk on finger tips to spread onto palm. Still a bit messy though and not quite as quick and easy as we hoped.
Update (12/07/2013): Very durable! Still using multiple times a week.
