Master Billiard Chalk is the industry standard for pool cue chalk in the United States. Master’s chalk is manufactured by Tweeten Fibre Co. in Chicago, Illinois.
Tweeten Fibre has been in the industry for over 100 years. They were founded in 1912 and have been making high quality chalk and cue tips ever since.
Since Tweeten Fibre co has been in the industry for 100 years, I can’t imagine them getting by making a product of subpar quality.
This product is a top of the line product that has stood the test of time.
The texture of masters chalk is a little hard and flaky. That’s not necessarily bad but it’s worth noting that the chalk flakes will get on your table when you shoot. So, if possible you should buy a color that would blend in with your table’s felt.
Master Billiard Chalk is one chalk company that offers a variety of colors. You can order Master Billiard Chalk in blue, green, grey, red, rust, gold, black and brown.
I have shot with Masters Billiards Chalk a number of times and it has never disappointed. I’ve always had very good success while using Masters chalk.
It grips the ball great and allows me to perform my desired english at will.
The main negative mark performance-wise is the fact I have to chalk up before every shot in order to maintain a strong grip on the cue ball. This isn’t a strong negative because this is the case with most chalks.
I got spoiled recently because my dad bought me Kamui .98 chalk. With Kamui chalk, I can go almost a full game without chalking up unless I’m putting a lot of english on a shot. If I need a lot of english, I chalk up just to be safe but I probably wouldn’t need to. Here’s a link to my review of Kamui chalk.
Other than having to chalk up before every shot, Masters is a great chalk in the performance category.
Masters chalk is priced very well, which is probably why it’s one of the leaders in the industry. It has great performance and a great price. It’s overall the best bang for your buck.
The Master Chalk comes in either a pack of 12 cubes for $7.00 ($0.58 / cube) or a pack of 144 cubes for $34.88 ($0.24 / cube).
With Master’s chalk you don’t have to worry too much if you accidentally left your chalk on the table at a bar.
There are definitely cheaper chalk out there but Master Chalk is a great chalk for the price. If you know any other chalks that are great for the price please let me know in the comments.
However, in the price category, I don’t think you can go wrong with Masters chalk.
Overall, my review of Masters Billiard Chalk comes out to an 8.5/10.
The Master’s Chalk is a great chalk and it’s made in the United States. They have been in the industry for 100 years and have remained one of the top chalk brands over this time. If you’re looking for a good chalk that isn’t too expensive, this is the one that I would recommend.
The Master Chalk comes in a pack of 12 cubes for $7.00 ($0.58 / cube) or a pack of 144 cubes for $34.88 ($0.24 / cube).
If price isn’t a determining factor for you. I would recommend trying the Kamui .98 chalk. The level of control that I receive with that chalk is amazing but when accounting for the price, for most players I would recommend sticking to the Master Pool Chalk.
