I have very sweaty hands so the chalk matters. This has been best for me so far. Definetely better than friction labs and propably even better than tokyo powder industries chalk. Okay it costs more than regular chalk but still a small price to pay for better performance and more joy with dryer hands climbing outside.
I bought it with some suspicion, but was drawn by the fact that it doesn't use drying agents.
Pure chalk that kept my hands dry for 2 hours of climbing in humid singapore weather. Not for those who chalk compulsively for psych.
I bought this chalk a few months ago and saved it for really fingery/delicate and condition dependant projects.
Well, after so many uses, and comparing it to other chalks like the normal BD's, on the same day, between different tries on the route, I could not see a great difference:
- It didn't really made me chalk less, or made me feel less humidity on the fingertips, the sensation was almost the same.
Although that, it's a great chalk, yes, but does not deserve the mega price difference, and propaganda.
