First of all, why use tacky?
Tacky will also reduce the load/stress on fingers, hands and biceps which can reduce the risk of injury and tendinitis.
Tacky will allow you to lift bigger and heavier stones, as it improves your grip on the stone by literally sticking you to the stone!
Tacky will improve your form on the pickup of the stone and the explosive power of the triple extensions as you load it from your lap. By improving your grip on the stones it will allow you to put more focus on the pickup and the loading phases because you do not have to focus on gripping the stone as much. Also the improved grip will let you move much faster thus you can up more energy in to the loading your stone.
