lighting a stick of p-tex by hand was easier and less time consuming and actually did a better job. I used it a few times and found it time consuming and inefficient.

I have not used the RP360, but the 100 is light-years ahead of what I was using. I agree that the repair area should be heated for maximum adhesion. 4 Stars because I have no basis of comparison, excellent tool, glad I bought it!

For more than 50 years I have been nibbling P-tex with broad tip soldering irons and dedicated versions of same. The RP100 has turned the most time consuming part of repair into the quickest part. If it saves me 30 - 60 minutes, weekly, during each ski season, for the rest of my retired years, it will have paid for itself many times over. Use it in combination with the Ski Visions Base Flattener for a fast and perfect repair.

This is better than using a welding iron tool which I had been using. Easy to apply and makes a nice repair

Have not given it a 5 Star, as I don't know the capabilities of its bigger brother. The reasons I like this tool are three: It does save time, just warm it up press and done. The P-tex bonds better and stronger, I still use the p-Tex strips for deeper cuts. And last but not least you get no stain from oxidization as when using the candle ones, which was a nightmare. Some may think that should stick to the cheaper old candle method, trust me, once you use it you will change your mind.

The p-tex tends to stick better to a rough surface. So be sure to sand the area filling well either by hand or use a dremmel for tighter areas.

I recently purchased one of these tools. They are much more expensive on other sites and I felt that for the money, it would be a good purchase. Overall, I'm satisfied with the performance of the gun. I use it in my home shop. One word of caution is that the base needs to be pre-heated in order for the P-Tex to weld itself to the base. If this is not done, the P-Tex will easily pull out. Not a fualt of the product, but something to bear in mind. Other than that, great product for the price.
