John G.wrote a review of Black Diamond Ascension Nylon Split STS Climbing Skin on February 20, 2011
I use these on liberty genomes (141 waist, 170 shovel) with marker dukes, so obviously I didn't get them to cut back on weight. I give them 4 stars because they do an adequate job as far as I'm concerned. I find that they slip on a very high angle track that is well-packed, but any skin has to have a "slipping point". I think my experience with these is better than most other reviewers because I just didn't have to trim much of the skin at all to fit to the genomes. The skinnier your skis are, the more of the actual skin you have to trim since it is on the outside edges. So, if you have the fattest of the fat skis, this might be a good skin. If you have average width fat skis, you may end up trimming away too much skin and losing precious grip.
