View Full Version : Skins?
02-16-2008, 10:44 PM
Hey everybody, I was thinking about investing in a pair of skins soon. I am planning on doing more BC in the future and figured they would be nice to have. I have been looking at a few brands online and reading some reviews. I was wondering what everyone here has bought and what you would recommend. Thanks for the help.

Honestly - my method of choosing was what was on sale, so I may not be the best source here. But I have pomocas on my teles and black diamond on my bc blades and have had no problem with either.
These guys are finally shipping:
Climbing Skins Direct (https://www.climbingskinsdirect.com/). A pair suited for my Crossbows goes for $95USD.
Check for discounts on other skins at:
EMS and the ever cheap:
5 years ago, I got some skins from Life-Link...great glide and adequet grip.
These Climbing Skins Direct guys?
I need some for my 170 Jak BC's (120-90-110).
The ascensions are so expensive...

I ponied up for the Ascensions...paid $160 at the Black Diamond store in SLC. Expensive, yes...but you get what you pay for.

Thanks for the help guys. RR those Climbing Skins Direct guys seem like a pretty good deal. I might give them a try, I don't know yet.
