scott hauganwrote a review of Black Diamond Ascension Nylon Split STS Climbing Skin on March 26, 2011
I bought these for my Pontoons. Worst ski purchase in years. The glue is not very sticky. The skin has a nylon strip down the center that lets snow in, eventually making the skin work loose.
HD needs to redesign this skin by making the overall glue better and making the center strip adhesive.
They are particularly bad in colder weather, ie below 20 deg F.
