These skins are great! Light, sticky, and grippy, What more could you ask for. I have been able to compare these to a friends BD Skins, and I haven't been able to find a reason they would be worse. The tip connectors are magical; I haven't been able to get the tips to disconnect, whereas the BD Skins have been know to have the tips fall off while skinning. Overall, excellent purchase, and I give these 5/5!
