    tarty outside of the norm?

    Post  Olly Pantrey on Sun Aug 08, 2010 3:59 pm

    Hello Guys

    Is it possible to be tarty without the use of stainless or carbon?

    Good question to be honest Olly...

    But i think there are several companies producing good looking alloy stuff as well!
    Interlock is one of them.
    And Cygnet as well i think.

    Its more than possible Olly, in fact i think it is the future of tarting. Cygnet, interlok, gardner alloy sticks can very tarty as they are very very practicle, in fact most of the time they are more practicle than stainless as in softish ground where there is no problem with bending thewm getting them in. In this situation they are more tarty.
    Most people get it wrong and thing tarting is all about spending cash on the most expensive kit there is. This is far from it. Its about using the best kit for the situation your in.

    Personally I think that being "outside of the norm" as it were, is the single biggest factor in tartiness. IMO tartiness is your gear looking pukka and well set out, but without putting in too much effort.

    Anyone who has clearly put in a lot of effort to get their gear looking tarty, level etc etc instantly becomes untarty.

    Understated is the new overstated. Like having your rod butts resting on twigs. If you turn up, and happen to find or quickly shape a couple of twigs/sticks that fit your rods nicely, that could be very very tarty.

    If however, you have clearly taken time out to find sticks, and taken them home, put them on the bench, lathe etc etc, you instantly becom untarty.

    Hope I'm making some kind of sense? And please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong tart-master Jefferies king king lol!
