Stones & Cold Weather, Use Tacky?


Hello, Just got an atlas stone & plan on using it for a training accessary. I've never trained strongman style before & was mainly wondering as to the value of Tacky, especially in cold climates.

I have no plans to compete, & train outside year round (record coldest training session is -27). Would tacky be of any value to me? I've heard it can help with injury prevention and I don't really want to get tendonitis just messing around with a stone.

Any advice on Atlas Stones very welcome. Thanks in advance.
