Pros Widely available, good texture and friction, nice priceExcellent value, good friction and coverageConsistent texture bag after bag, great frictionCoats hands well, least expensive "climbing specific" chalkGreat Coverage, Excellent friction, almost no dust
Cons Easy to spill, creates a lot of dustUnusable if you have cuts and abrasions on your handsExpensiveLow friction, doesn't last as long as other chalks.Not a great value
Bottom Line Widely available and reasonably priced, this chalk takes the taco in our competition.Similar performance to Secret Stuff at a lower price.Consistently crunchy and provides great friction, for a high price.A good choice if you like to use loads of chalk.This chalk cream isn't cheap, but it could be that little advantage that makes the difference between success and failure.
