    The powder you mean? Color?

    This feels like deja vu in regards to a suspender question…..

    Regardless….Tajima is a great brand, Milwaukee has a great aluminum body chalk line available, Irwins are affordable but work well.

    What is your primary trade or requirement for a chalk line, @Olivert ?

    Is he in the trades , I know from some of the guys here in the trades , they recommend the tajima brand , I know at the shop use the DeWalt and have no complaints about it. It depends how much he will use it , if he’s in the trades , you might want to buy him a better quality for longer use without problems. Good luck with that , hopefully you let us know what you decide on.

    The Tajima chalk lines are my favorite, I have several of them…one for blue, one for red, one for white, and one for orange.

    Generally I’ve found these Milwaukee lines to be a great value.

    They perform well, leave a fairly crisp line. Large enough to see even as the chalk is running out, but thin enough to be accurate.

    Also for the price I don’t feel bad when I use them in the rain and snow.

    Those are a nice chalk box…I have a couple of those in my strangely large chalk line collection. LOL
