The p-tex string is some burly stuff. It is hard and sticks in deep gouges well. However, the p-tex string did not do so well in the minor gouges I had on my skis. At first, I thought my repair iron wasn't heating it up enough, so on my second attempt I was much more patient in melting the string. Again, it came right off with the scraper. Round three, I heated the base p-tex before applying the string. Again - no dice. I'm sure this is a 5 star product if you use it in the right application, but I'm giving it 3 because it does NOT hold up in shallow gouges as the product desciption explains.

This product didn't work for me. It was too difficult to melt and didn't stay after one trip on the mountain.

I've used this p-tex string -- as well as the one made specifically to stick to metal -- for more than a decade and can only say it's by far the most economical, easiest to use and very tough base repair p-tex out there. You have to buy the electric p-tex iron to use it, but in the end you'll save far more than that costs because you're not splattering p-tex all over the base, just where you want it.
I also have a repair pistol that uses the 11mm sticks, but mostly it sits unused unless I have a lot of skis to repair. For the individual or family skier, the p-tex string is far superior.
