The chalk it self has a new look and feel to it. The new Hexagon shape that Kamui has chosen just feels right in your hands. The chalk feels a lot stiffer and harder to apply; it takes many swipes or brushings to apply it correctly. Once applied the chalk sticks to the tip with a different feel, as opposed to the other chalks in the Kamui line. In my opinion the chalk is harder of a consistency than anything else that is on the market. The chalk feels a lot different than anything else, it really does.
In some pool rooms across the nation they have banned the use of soft chalks like some of the Kamui lines because of the transferring qualities on to their cloth. Comments have been made in the community that the original Kamui was too messy. The consistency was very soft with the Kamui 0.98 and the 1.21. Some players loved the tackiness of it and the ability to go rack after rack without chalking over and over. Some prefer the softer of the two different variations.
