I have been using these with my all-round/power skis (Movement Shift) for 3rd season now. Overall, I am very happy with these as the glide is great for such a wide skin yet the grip is sufficient as well unless you have a really bad technique. I would give these 4.5 mark due to the tail attachment as it is not tight enough. However, I am used to race skins without tails so this is not a big issue. The glue is still good although showing signs of leaving some residue/glue on skins occasionally now. Could b...

I mostly prefer to ski these with ton...
