This is my first set of skins. I bought them because they were well reviewed. And they are excellent skins. Perhaps a bit heavy, but definitely durable. Perhaps a bit lacking on the glidablity, but very grippy on those ugly, steep accents, (and with 125mm under foot on my Megawatts, who can blame them). But all this leads me to the glue. Wow they are sticky! All my buddies can do "the trick". You know that trick were you whip your skins off without taking your skis of. With the glue on these BD skins, it takes my full body strength to get them off. We're talking put-a-foot-down, put-your-back-into-it kind of pulling. Maybe this is not a comment on the skins, but rather comment on my weakness. Or maybe its the fact that this is my first season with these skins and they haven't amassed a sufficient quantity of dog hair. Which ever it may be, these are great skins and I am very happy with them, and with them I aspire someday to be able to do "the trick"
