    Fix your base

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These candles work great for patching small core shots in your base material on your skis or board. Simply clean the affected area, clear out debris, melt some of the candle in there, let it sit, scrape and buff and then you should be good to hit the slopes. I will say that I've found if you do this inside the house in your basement or in the garage with some type of space heater on, this works much better. When done at cold temps the P- tex doesn't seem to bond as well leaving it with a tendency to crack and fall out rendering your repair useless.

    I use them to fix my kayak!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These repair candles are the absolute best way I've found to repair gouges in my kayak. I'm constantly boofing off of every rock I see so I get a lot!

    Before using the candles I tried using bondo, epoxy, enamel and nothing bonds like the candles do.

    This is because they are molten hot when applied which cause the plastic of my boat fuse with the molten liquid.

    Look at the bottom of my review for my contact info. Feel free to email or call if you have any questions about my review or this product.

    Be sure to specify black or clear

      If you have a graphite base, go for the black ones. Any other base go for clear. I use a metal scraper to drip the carbon black chips onto. You will also need a metal scraper to smooth out the repair: http://www.backcountry.com/swix-steel-scraper.

      Put Your Skis or Board in the Mood

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

      Hey, babe, how 'bout my place tonight? I'll light this candle I got from backcountry.com and make you feel good...all smooth and right. It'll just take a minute or two, and you'll be in the mood for some serious fun! Whadyasay?

      Works like a champ

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      If you ski like my husband and manage to find every rock under the snow - then i recommend grabbing a pack of these Toko Repair Candles. Quick easy way to touch up your skis after a rough winter without heavy snow. Hopefully we won't need to use this as much after the 2015/2016 el nino winter - but we will be glad we have a few around for the inevitable whoopsy daisy after skiing over a rock or stump.

      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.

        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.

          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

          • 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.
