DIY - feel awesome

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

You will use 1/2 to 3/4 stick if you are patient and have multiple fixes. Using clear P-Tex is awesome and a pain in the butt at the same time. Constantly rotate your P-Tex stick once lit and scrape off excess P-Tex that has built up any carbon before dripping it into your gash.

worked great

make sure to keep the end of the candle very close to the board / ski's while you are using this or you'll end up with pieces of black burnt ptex in your repair. My first one had some but once I got the hang of it the rest were clear. This placed over some JB Weld work great for replacing blown out edges on a snowboard. I have only used it for a day of riding since making the repair but it has held up fine so far.

Quick fixer-upper

Does what it should. I had no problem with the clear holding to my skis and does look better than black on my colored bases. It is hard to keep it clear when using a lighter though, tends to get some black in it and turns brown.

Cheap & Easy

If you're like me, regularly beat up your bases, and are tired of paying your local shop for so much repair work, these are for you. They're easy to use (see the below videos) and the price is hard to beat. As others have mentioned, black's easier to handle and seems to bond better but clear probably makes more sense if you have colored bases. The trick is to keep the flame close to your bases and limit the flame's oxygen supply.

Go with the black

I only bought the clear because the black was out of stock, and if I buy it again, it will be for the same reason. The black is great, way stronger. Very easy to use, and very handy to have around.

Looks Like New

I recently sold a pair of skis that had some base damage to them. I used the base repair and tuned them up and the bases looked like new. Worth buying.

Does what you'd expect.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Toko Repair Candle does exactly what you'd expect a stick of ptex to do. As put below by Chris - "The black is awesome, easy to use and gets the job done. Occasioanlly I rip some out with my skins, but whatever. Reapplying is easy enough." Pretty much all there is to say here. It's Ptex.

Comes in handy if your not careful

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These P-Tex sticks are helpful when you're not careful or just really want to test conditions a bit too early on. They are simple to use. Clear works well for colored bases, but black tends to stick to bases better. Follow the instructions for best results.

Go with black

The clear sounds like it'd preserve the base design of your ski, but ive never been able to get it to not char and show up more brown and dirty looking than clear. The black is awesome, easy to use and gets the job done. Occasioanlly I rip some out with my skins, but whatever. Reapplying is easy enough.

This is the best P-Tex Repair Instructional video I've seen so far! Keep it low and keep it blue!

Easy to use

Cheap and easy to use. Just light it up and drip it in. You will certainly get better results with a p-tex gun but for fast and easy repairs of minor damage this will suit you just fine. Cut out the damage, drip this in, scrape it smooth, wax your bases, and you are ready to go.

Use Black. It Bonds Better

I have been using Clear p-tex for years because I don't like black bases. The Clear does char a little bit and you really have to keep it spinning so it doesn't burn. I recently used some black p-tex because someone said it bonds better, and they were right! It does bond better!

Will you repair ear pads? My dog ate them. I love my glasses.

Hey Dee McNeil. We unfortunately do not do any repairs on items that are damaged/broken. But, if you bought the glasses through Backcountry.com, we can certainly take them back in exchange for a new pair. Please call in to 1-800-409-4502 or hit the "Chat Now" button at the top right of the page if you did purchase your glasses from Backcountry.com to find out more. I hope this helps!

Great Product

This P-Tex works really well. I gash my skis a lot. I use this to fix it. It does its job. It melts fairly quickly. It stays in place most of the time. I does what it is supposed to do.

dont buy this from here

just go to a ski shop that does it for you and ask them if they'll sell you a few sticks of p-tex they more than likely will and you wont spend 5 bucks for just 4 of them. they'll probably give you 10 for a couple bucks and then you wont be paying shipping either. sorry backcountry but its not work the money. pretty much all p-tex is the same and paying for the ToKo name isnt getting you anything more.

This is not a product review, this is his own stupidity.
