Larger Sweet Spot
KAMUI Chalk contains a much finer particle size than standard chalk.The purpose of this is to maximize the friction and offer a larger sweet spot to generate more spin to the cue ball.
More Accurate Aim
Reducing slippage decreases deflection,giving the player a more accurate aim when english is applied.
Giving the player the best possible friction while maximizing the sweet spot on the cue ball. More adhesion allows the chalk to stay on the cue tip longer.
Improved longevity, with a harder compound, to give the player more confidence with a Pre- Shot routine. Reduced compound transfer to the cue ball.
― When did you start using KAMUI chalk?
I first started using Kamui chalk about a week before the Philippine Open in April 2011.
― How did you feel?
At first it felt a bit awkward to use the new chalk, soft and oily. But soon I noticed a huge difference to conventional chalk.
― How different?
It is almost impossible to miscue. Unless your tip is in a really really bad condition or your angle how you enter the cue ball is technically incorrect you just cannot miscue.
I ended up winning the Philippine Open among other major events this year and I will never look back. Kamui chalk improved my game, I am a Kamui addict.
― How does KAMUI chalk change your game from a techinacal standpoint?
I am not a scientist, but its absolutely proven that you can hit the cue ball way lower without miscues using Kamui chalk versus conventional chalk. The sweet spot of KAMUI chalk is larger, I can feel shots better by enlarging my limits to the outer side of the cue ball and still have the grip.
― Any other changes?
After a while I just trusted the chalk which absolutely boosted my confidence.
― How did the chalk boost your confidence?
I remember a time using conventional chalk when I had to kill the cue ball by using a lot of draw in combination with outside english. Too many times I miscued in that scenario before, so I automatically adjusted a little bit to the inside of the cue ball to make sure I dont scratch but that limited my position play dramatically. Now with the Kamui chalk I have no more fear of miscueing. I know I can go to the absolute limit and still have 100% control over the cue ball.
― Any other comment on KAMUI chalk?
The truth is I am sponsored by Kamui products which I am really proud of. But even if my sponsorship would end today I would go into the store and buy my box of Kamui chalk. I am a professional pool player. I cannot afford to miscue. Kamui chalk improved my game technically and mentally. I know I can count on the performance of the chalk and it enables me to just focus on whats important, my own performance. It extended my limits in pool.
