Reviewed by BC dude from California on Wednesday, October 30, 2013Have had a few sets of these for various skis, and these look to be as good as the others. Make sure when ordering that you take the time to put in the note section to include the tail strap as per picture and descritption. I don't know about you but I like the extra measure of confidence that it won't peal off when I'm skinning up or side-hilling. STP was able to fix the problem and get me out the right one but it is a bit of a pain dealing with returns and new charges, etc. when you made sure to order exactly what you wanted. Would have been 5 stars if they got it right the first time
Reviewed by Hellingbamster from Seattle on Thursday, April 11, 2013Good instructions for installation, good glide/grip performance, and good glue. I paired these with some BD Justice skis. Although the skis are wider than 110mm at the tip and tails (which consequently leaves some areas uncovered), I have not noticed any decrease in uphill performance.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by cbgarrett from Wasatch Mountains on Wednesday, February 20, 2013Gold standard for skins. They just work well.
Don't glide as well as mohair, but much more durable.
