Default Strongman tacky

I am going to order some new tacky for my upcoming competition.

I have only used spider tack, anybody have any other suggestions?

Does it really matter which one

I used to use elite tacky. Been years and I'm not even sure it's made anymore

Going to depend on the event and the temp. I've tried Elite, Jack, PR and Spider and I'd have to say Spider Tack for most temps, Jack Tack (if they still make it) for temps below 60. Stuff was still liquid at 30 when I used it a few years ago in the winter. Never had good luck with Elite the two times I used it but I couldn't get it warm enough to spread. Spider Tack is quite different from the other tacky in properties as most tacky is spreadable paste whereas Spider Tack is Spider Tack.

Elite tacky is great for hot weather, Elite training tacky when its a bit colder. Spider tacky is great but I think it will get to slippery if the weather is to hot.

Thanks guys!

I think I am going to stick with spider tack.

Tried elite over the weekend and I guess it is just too cold. Maybe in the summer I will try it again.

Thanks for the he
