I've used better, more adherent chalk - not sure about rockclimbers and pole etc, but I use it for powerlifting (deadlifts, pull ups etc). It's so expensive compared to other brands! Weirdly, it smells really good, which is one positive I guess.
I got this for pole fitness, which I’ve been doing for over 10 years. I’d tried Dry Hands at a friend’s house and it was perfect - but this grip was utterly useless. It flakes off the pole almost immediately but stuck to my hands far too much. I nearly got a friction injury from a single spin but still couldn’t climb or invert without slipping. One thing I will say for it is that the hand grip when doing side lifts is exceptional - but that’s no good if the rest of the grip is all wrong.
I was a bit sceptical buying this as everyone at my pole class DIES BY DRY HANDS but I just wanted to try something as I find dry hands a bit pricey. Honestly this suits me just fine. Any seasoned polers, I did Ayesha using this and I was fine! I find it a little powdery when it dries - i.e. when I clap my hands together chalk dust does come off - but once I've rubbed it into my hands a bit its fine. I am happy to keep using this for pole.
Compared to other popular brands, this chalk takes longer to dry and rubs off more easily. I usually have to reapply after every set when using this one. It is also more expensive than other brands (who offer more ml for less cost).
I'm going to say I only have one gripe with this item and that's the lack of little tiny granules inside the mixture, for this price I would expect it to be premium but, alas, it lacks this one thing. It's very smooth and I would have loved it to have the tiny particles inside to make it sligtly (but not uncomfortably) abrasive like some other products I've used. Otherwise a good product and does not leave marks on clothes which is a lovely touch.
I bought this for home workouts as I was missing the chalk at the gym. I’ve used it once and so far it seems very good. It goes on wet and as it dries you get the chalk on your hands. It kept on very well during my session and unless it was really wet it kept my hands dry and able to lift the weights for my CrossFit session. It didn’t come off on my clothes which is a bonus. It came off straight away when I washed my hands afterwards. So far I’m pleased with my purchase.
I use it for pole fitness. It works really well, gives me good grip and isn’t TOO white on the hands. My only issue is that the residue left at the opening dries and crumbles so every time I open the lid it makes a mess of crumbly white bits all over the studio floor. So when using it it’s best to clean the opening before closing the lid.
Looks like great product, I was really looking forward to receive it. However it arrived opened, looks like someone opened it, gave it a try, returned and it was sold again :(. Ordered 100 ml, under plastic lid was silver/foil seal which was opened and then sort of put back on. That was very dissapointing :(.
I bought the smaller one with the ring fastner. Its great I attach it to the loop on my gym water bottle and then I dont forget it or leave it around. I dont need to worry about it spilling or leaking in my bag. I can chalk up and it doesnt go anywhere other than my hands so if I forget and accidently take it to work, it can sit in the bottom on my bag safe and clean.
Great chalk. Ive used other chalks, liquid and chalk balls, that don’t do the job so well - but this one does. My main use for this is for a heavy kettlbell I own that has a thick handle and smooth/polished surface that was extremely difficult to keep a hold of whilst doing swings. This chalk sticks well to the surface of the handle and my hands meaning keeping hold of it is no longer a problem. I imagine it will be great for barbell deadlifts etc too. Non dusty and a washed off easy with soap and water. Highly recommend.
