Thanks very timely. For some reason I always have issues with my skins.

You can also iron the old glue off onto newspapers or other paper. Ends up cleaner than scraping it off.

That Coll-tex roll glue is SO much nicer than the old liquid glue.

Thanks, & a reminder that I need to reglue mine, -it’ll be my 1st go at it.
Some Q’s:
1.Is there a good reason why BD glue sheet is 50% more expensive than Colltex? I’m in UK.
2. Are these 2 glues made of the same stuff & therefore interchangeable? (At the mo, I have Colltex, but my wife’s skins are BD).
3. For 8 months of the year we keep our skins folded in half on a cheat sheet (mesh from garden centre, works fine), and then folded small in a bag; my wife’s BD skins have only had 3 separate weeks use, spread over 3 years, but seem to have little stickiness left, and I’m wondering if an airtight storage bag would prolong glue life?

The tips for reglueing climbing skins were very helpful for me. I had lots of difficulty doing it in my last expedition. The video was very descriptive and the methods very simple. The need for taking proper safety measures is a must to every climber.
