Are these any different from last year's other than the graphics and the manufacture's warranty change from 1 year to lifetime?
They are different. They changed the glue this year.
Did the glue change on the Ascensions as well, or only the GlideLites?
The glue changed on all BD skins I'm told. However, I just started using this years' GlideLite and they have performed really well so far.
