Over the past year or so, we’ve had a number of requests to carry Blue Diamond chalk. This is the stuff that Longoni has made which sells for around 7 bucks for two cubes. It’s really popular with competitive players and tons of people swear by it, including my good buddy Samm Diep.
The reason I’ve been dragging my feet on carrying the chalk is the price. We’ve sold silver cup chalk and master chalk forever at $4.95 for 12 pieces, so when I heard that that we’d have to sell this stuff for $3.50 per cube, I was skeptical. Mind you not as skeptical about it as the $25 per cube Kamui chalk, but skeptical nonetheless.
In the end though, it is up to the customers to decide. Just like with every product we carry, if it sells, we’ll keep it in the mix. If not, we’ll take it down. I must say though that the first 24 hours have been promising, as we’ve already sold through a nice amount of this stuff with very little promotion. We’ll see how it goes.Google+
