    Bought this for my brother in law- nice kit, great Swix quality, has all the pieces you need to get started tuning - STP shipping was fast and convenient!

    It does exactly what it says it does, and is pretty easy to use for someone who doesn't have much tuning experience. The vices work well enough for home tuning and the file holder makes it easy to sharpen the edges. The iron also works well - finally I can stop searching garage sales for irons to wax my skis :)

    I got this kit as a starter set up because it is a great deal when compared to buying everything separately. So, catch it on sale and hit the ground running. The components are well worth the investment. I will add a couple different waxes and probably one or two other brushes as I get more into it.

    This is a good starter set. I think I will be upgrading the file for next ski season, but this is a good tuning set to learn what you are doing and what is needed to tune skis. I was a little disappointed with the directions that came with the kit. It seemed more like an advertisement of what I should have purchased rather than a how-to. I had to do some YouTube searching to find out exactly how to use the edge file and feel confident about it.

    I just purchased this to tune up our family's skis and snowboards for the season. Saved me lots of money when compared to doing this through our local ski shop! Exactly as advertised. I understand the issues described about the clamps, but I simply secured the skis and snowboards to the clamps using my QuickGrip clamps. Easy! All tuned up (three sets of skis and two snowboards) for $130 including shipping...

    If you can get this at the closeout price, its well worth it. The iron and vice are more expensive to buy individually, let alone the other additions (wax, scraper, file, etc). All the tuning tools are on the small/compact side. Great for on the go, but may want to invest in better stuff down the road or if you plan on tuning multiple pairs of skis at once. Otherwise, great package for the price.

    This was not as expected. I will return this to the store.

    Good starter kit. Vices should snap onto bindings for a more secure hold.

    The iron and vises are the reason to buy this kit if you can get it cheap ($80-100 range). The kit does not come with a middle clamp to support the ski in a flat position so keep that in mind when comparing options for purchase. The wax, guide, file, plexi scraper and brush are better than nothing but you will want to piece those together from another source.

    If the price is right the vise and iron are tough to beat.
