Aaron Nashwrote a review of Montana Montasprint Skin - Mohair on February 9, 2016
The plush side of these skins are great and work as intended. I have found the grip and glide to be comparable to the other mohair skins I have (Pomoca), which is awesome. No problems braking trail or going up reasonable skin tracks.
The glaring issue with these is the terrible euro spec glue on them. It's nice and tacky at warmer temps, but I've found that they just flat out suck below 0C temps. Snow was always creeping in from the edges, even after the first lap. Anything more than 2 laps and good luck on getting them to stick! I'm careful with my skins during transitions and no amount of pampering will help this glue stick in NA temps.
I recently experienced a complete skin failure in Japan after skiing off of Myoko-san. These skins didn't stick well, and so much snow got between the ski and the skin that the glue just flat out gave up after the climb to the summit. Liberal applications of ski straps helped them at least stay on the ski until I could limp out of there. Luckily town was a few hours away and I wasn't stranded days out.
It's a shame that the glue sucks so bad on these, because otherwise they're great, and half the price of comparable offerings from Pomoca and BD. 3 Stars for a good product that has to be made great with a little of your own time.
Luckily the glue issue is an easy fix if you're willing to put in a little time. Since my glue failure, I've stripped the worthless Montana glue (heat gut + putty knife) and reapplied Pomoca glue-in-a-tube (parchment paper + iron) and they work like a charm. Buy these and a tube of BD or Pomoca glue, re-do the glue right from the start, and you'll have a rockin' pair of mohair skins for way less $$ than the competitors.
