Could anybody please advise if this is possible. My Mantras are 2009 167cm, 96mm underfoot and I intend getting a new pair of 174cm Coomback but would rather avoid buying a second set of skins if possible. They are the old style black mohair glidelite so at the tip they have the metal attachment which is held on by the skin apparently doubled back on itself.
- firstly would the width be an issue? ie they have been shaped for the mantras so if i'm missing a few mm either side is it an issue if i'm mainly doing lift accessed day tours. I'll also have ski crampons if the uphill going gets tough.
- secondly can i just peel the glue back to get a bit of extra length for the tip or is it fixed....it seems pretty well stuck? it also has a few spare notches in the tail so i could use those but then the tips might be too low down and drag in the snow.
