Yah, same for me. 3 times now and the ptex candled in will not hold for more than a few runs. I know when it falls out because the ski gets grabby -- railey feeling.

Doesn't using metal grip pre-suppose OP has a base welding iron plus associated tools or can metal grip also be drip candled into a gouge ?
While I agree metal grip is the party-line method for fixing core shots, I thought the original intention was to get a quick & dirty but safe fix to let OP's GF try out her skis. Before I started using metal grip (and got myself a welding iron and repair ribbon and a panzer file and ....) I found adequate success with epoxy to fill the bulk of the gash and drip candle over the top just before the epoxy got hard.
But then again I'm one of those pesky liberals.....
