Worked out great
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have the G3 alpinist skins and this worked great for a refresh on the glue. My skins were in great shape, but the glue wasn't sticking anymore. The glue renew was cheaper than buying another pair of skins, so I went for it.
The skins come with simple instructions on how to remove the old and apply the new glue. I used some old newspaper, a clothes iron (on high), and a putty knife to remove the old glue. It took a few goes to get it all off. Only thing I wasn't sure about was removing the "ripstrip", but not having one hasn't really been an issue. Removing the old glue was a pain.
Applying the new glue was pretty darn easy and much faster than taking the old stuff off! Again, used the clothes iron to thoroughly melt the glue onto the skins, then once it cooled, removed the backing. I've used the skins a few times since, and it's working out great so far!
