    i really don't see any need for different caps... rusto fats and german jumbos are nice when you want speed on yer side, but otherwise they're pretty pointless. thicker/thinner lines can be made just from how far you hold the can from the wall, and super thin lines get lost in a piece... i've had some fun screwing around with different caps, and i have a lot of different ones, but i've never pieced with them...

    different caps can be damn fun for tags tho...

    .......hey........

    I like German outlines and new york fats. Just me tho.


    CAPS.......... I hate that kid on t.v.
     
  6. Ive seen a huge difference between caps...Rusto orange middles are the shit...Rusto in the states rules everything...The only color euros ever sweat is Summer Squash, the old ones at least...They have the advantage in the paint department, and maybe in the crazy department too, but thats a different arguement...German fat caps are good for huge tags, other than that useless in the states...Except for filling in shit...German thins for piecing I hated too...Too much variety in line if youre not carefull...German thins have been allright in bombing because they can spray wide if used far from surface...New York fats have to be broken in, and they only really work with Krylon, and that shit sucks for bombing for the most part...Ultra flat black and a new New York cap for me personally is tooooo wide, it has to be used and clogged a littled for it to be really usefull...For me, in the end its either New York thins, or Rusto orange middles......My experience...

    it all depends on what you're doing....obviously if you're outlining a sick pice your going to use something thin.....just because you probably know you'll fuck up using a stock....if you're filling fats are always nice but you can get away with using a stock...for bombing it's straight up stocks...no doubt about it....and for tagging it's all personal preference....i usually tag stock or ny thins...just what i like :dazed:

    thats not really what i was asking guys....i was more or less reffering to the belief by many that if u use anything other than stocks to outline that you loosing the true essence of "pure" graffiti.

    Mad heads piece with Stocks because if you have good enough can control, then you can get lines like a german thin or a rusto fat. Just learn about pressure and distince from a wall. Beautifull.

    I like to use german thins, New York fats, and golden faced super thin caps. You know the ones Daim uses.

    That's ridiculous.

    Stocks, thins, fats, etc. make no difference -- it's how they're utilized.

    "Pure" graffiti is in the work, not the materials.
