Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I've been skiing the Tecnica Cochise Pro Light for several years both resort and backcountry. Swapped soles for a while and then bought a second pair to dedicate to backcountry. Biggest complaint with the Pro Light is no front end with a tongue liner so (for me) must be skied with a Power Wrap style liner to stiffen things up. Fine for resort skiing, but doesn't skin so well.

Enter the Zero G Guide Pro, and much better front end - I could jettison the powerstrap completely even with a tongue liner. Soles are also much improved. But the big drawback for me is I can't get the two cuff buckles to cinch down as needed - particularly the lower cuff buckle. The two pieces of the overlap bind, and I cannot get the cuff to wrap my ankle resulting in excess cuff lag. Never had that problem in any other overlap style boot.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I own the Alpinist and the Alpinist High Traction. I religiously separate, dry and store my skins. Yesterday about 50% of all the glue transferred to my freshly waxed, scraped, and brushed ski. Skied a very dicey line with skin glue tip to tail - put my life at risk! Got home and tried the other pair of skins, and they did the same thing to a different pair of waxed skis.

Impossible to remove without paint thinner or wax remover. Do not buy these skins.

I have old Ascensions (like 10 years old) that still perform very well. Buy those.
