Our chalk nuggets are manufactured by the same people that make our block chalk . The nuggets are shaped somewhat like large pieces of popcorn . This chalk is bagged in 12oz baggies and come with 36 bags per case. This is a less expensive way to get your chalk.
AN IMPORTING NEW ANALYSIS FOR GYMNASTICS AND ROCK CLIMBING
We just received some very interesting results from two independent studies. On at a National Sports Training Center and another at a rock climbing gym at a National University. Here comparison tests were undertaken by renowned coaches and gymnasts comparing block chalk with chalk Nuggets. The results are astonishing and I am giving you, below, the findings.
- Nuggets were found to have better adhesion that block chalk
- Nuggets were found to be equal with some and better than others as to skid proof
- Nuggets were found to be a more comfortable style for handling
- Nuggets were very easy to press and rub on
- Nuggets saved more time as they did not need to be first crushed as does a block
- There was less waste with nuggets
- Nuggets are priced better that block as they are much less labor intensive
- Nuggets have a much shorter delivery time
- When hand guards (gloves) are used, nuggets are easier to use
