killclimbz They are a bit softer, but I think the main thing is that they are not nearly as thick. So they stash easier and such. The skins I got from climbing skins direct are also much easier to deal with than the Ascension skins too.

killclimbz Also, I think I am going to pick up a set of those.

killclimbz G3 makes very supple skins. They are not as durable as the Ascension skins, but they are so much easier to deal with. As far as how they climb, I believe the Ascensions to be slightly better, but maybe not. Something I seem to remember reading in Backcountry mag when they did a skin comparison.

snowvols Little bit of product placement Who cares what they look like in a fashion sense. They appear to be durable though and that's all I care about

ShredLife holy fucking Louis Vuitton... i know they're either gonna be under my feet on the snow or stashed in my backpack but goddamn those are uglier than dog shit.

snowvols Dang Jeri good find on those. I might have to pick a pair of those up for the new split.

snowvols That's the nice thing about the G3 tail clip though is that it can rotate more or less pending how you have the plastic strap connected. It will move around until it finds the groove on your board.

ShredLife the tailkit is like a $20-40 bullet out of a $500-$1400 magazine you'll be shooting (if someone buys a new split.)

also, you can do just fine without the little plastic strappy thing that attaches the tailclip to the skins... on a split they connect at a funny angle so dialing in that strap can be a bitch - i just used elastic/bungee style cordette with my G3 tailclips and they seem to stay on fine - although its a new setup and i haven't put a ton of miles on it yet.... but its fine
