Rated 5 out of 5 by Phatteus from So sticky it hurts Compared to the two other brands I have used, Jones and G3, these are the best by far. In fact I gave the others away and am buying a second pair of these for backup which is why I'm on this site right now. Sometimes they are too sticky and I barely have the strength to remove them from my splits at the top of a second or third lap. Not a bad problem though. I guess if there was one improvement I could make it would be to have the G3 attachments on the front end of the ascension skins. They are a lower profile but not by much and I would never choose the G3s over the BDs for that reason or any other enen of they were free.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JHSnowboarder from Best skins, Period I've always been a fan of BD skins, preferring their combo of grip and glide over anything G3 has ever produced. Their glue is also the best in the world, not balling up or leaving gunk on the bases of my split-board either. The fact that they now come in more splitboard friendly sizes with tail clips makes these the only splitboard skins anyone should think about. A set of these even work on my swallowtail split.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Al124 from Tail clips don't stay on. Tail clips too easy to knock off, suggest skipping these for some G3s
