    Default Hard chalk reccomendation?

    Can anyone recommend me chalk?

    I bought this Amazon.com and it's awful. Super soft, entire block disintegrated on first use, and does a poor job drying my hands. Where can I get those hard blocks of chalk that are good for lifting?

    Thanks.

    I got Spider Chalk last summer and am still on my first block. Very dense, doesn't crumble (once it smooths out after a couple workouts), and is made in the USA.

    I just switched over to a ball and gave up on the blocks.

    Spider chalk is very good. It is dense and has a nice texture. The blocks don't break up like the chalk I got from Rogue.

    I'm currently using Rogue Gym Chalk and it seems to work fine. Before that I was using Mueller Chalk, which was also did the job.

    I bought some from Amazon last month that was shit too. Different brand but absolute shit. I can't even get the paper wrapper off without breaking it apart. I never bothered to read reviews or anything, it's just chalk right?

    I think Ader chalk is what I bought around 10yrs ago and it lasted me up until that last purchase. I don't remember having these problems with it so I think I'm going to try it again.

    Rogue even manages to ship it promptly. Iím (slowly) working through the first block as well.
