Huge necessity. I highly recommend these. Alot of Ptex comes with 4-6 in a package for the same price. These come with 8 sticks and are the exact same quality as any.

Say no to core shots!
Nothing slows your season down more than a gnarly coreshot. Fix that little bugger right up with these bad boys and youre good to go!

If you wanna keep getting faceshots, you gotta fix those coreshots.

A base saver
If you were like me, you have spent plenty of time just filling coreshots with wax to get by... grab some p-tex, do it the right way, and keep your skis going! Super easy to use, and you can get away with using a wax scraper or a straight edge razor to get rid of the excess p-tex if you don't have their specific file.

These do the trick. Works how they are supposed to.

Easy maintenance item to do on your own. Best if used in conjunction w/ metal scraper or razor blade.

Gets the Job Done
Great product to repair you ski/board bases with. Don't forget to buy a metal scraper!

Does the job.
These work well for minor scrapes and dings. They don't hold to core material well and they don't stick to edges either. I'd invest in a metal scarper to get the excess P-tex off your bases; razors have a tendency to gouge your ski base.

Works great! I have fixed many core shots with these with ease.

Go the economical route and repair your own bases. Easy to use, just be sure to use a metal scraper to scrape off excess P-Tex.

not for edges
Like most have said, these ptex sticks are great for smaller gouges. I like to over-fill the hole and then scrape the excess back with with a new razor blade (I don't have a metal scraper and a razor seems to do just as well) and this should give you a flush finish. Word of warning: the spot you are filling must be completely surrounded by the ptex of your base (as in not touching the edge) for the new ptex to fully bond. If you are repairing even a small gouge that is touching your metal edge this stuff will not last. And by will not last, I mean not even one day of riding. It will crack and pop out. For that you will need to use marine epoxy. (I'm sure there is YouTube videos on how to do epoxy base repairs)

Great for minor base repair. May not always get the job done for larger core shots.

does the job
I maybe making this up but the black ones seem to work better than the clear.

easy to use
Lets be honest, if you are fixing massive core shots your p-tex will eventually come out. These hold up as well as anything else and I have had great luck fixing the little guys. Easy to use so when your big fixes come out you can easily patch them back up.

Fix your early season mistakes
These ptex sticks filled in all my core shots from early season Alta skiing. They are easy to use and fill in really well. My skis feel brand new again after using these, an edge sharpen and a clean wax job. My friend is using these sticks in an attempt to get flatten out his fish scale skis, which seems to be working.

Thanks to the internet, a good roommate, and these ptex candles I am now an expert snowboard repairswoman. Okay, that might be an overstatement. Do your research before you repair your board for the first time and you'll be a pro in no time. Cheaper than taking it to the shop!

Fill those Core Shots
These work great, I find that using a torch limits the amount of carbon I get when the stick burns and creates a better bond to the base material.
