    i'm placing this ad on behalf of a couple of mates who want to have a crack at some light touring, they have their kit mostly sorted except for climbing skins.
    Anybody looking to offload some used skins? They are in Bris so you would have to consider if posting is worth your time.
    They are both on 95-100 waisted skis that are 177cm long.
    PM me if you can help them out for cheap.
    Cheers, Boof

    Boof... Boof ..Boof

    I would advise at biting the bullet, and buying a new set.

    Pro
    • Your new set will be trimmed to your board.
    • Glue new and fresh.
    • They will perform as expected
    Cons
    • Second hand skins may not fit your boards profile and need re-trimming
    • You may have to rejuvenate or replace the glue
    • Second hand skins may have knicks or cuts that will invariably get bigger
    Ultimately the end choice is yours also there are a lot of good threads here on skins.

    Just going through the motions with them Ricardo. Have already told them they've got Buckley's of getting a sweet deal but I would reach out for them online.
    Have explained to them the pros and cons.

    Tell them to go and buy some one way sandpaper at the hardware.
    Same aisle as the left handed hammers;)
