Black Diamond Glop Stopper Wax Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

Nothing is as frustrating as going out for a ski tour and having your skins glomm up. Hateful, hateful, hateful. It kills the glide of the skins, adds tons of weight, gets worse with each step and just comes back immediately after you clean it off. Luckily, there is a simple solution - BD Glop Stopper wax.
I slice off about 1" at a time and carry it around with me, as well as a small credit card sized chunk of plastic. You have to really scrape the water out of your skins first, and then rub in the wax as hard as you can. Even then, you'll probably have to do this at least twice once you've got the glommies. Better yet, do it at home before your skins even get a chance to glom up.

I've used this touring in warm wet spring conditions in MT and skinning in the rain in Valdez. I've used it with several different sets of skins and have never had glopping problems, so long as I remember to apply the wax before the tour. As far as I'm concerned skin wax is essential for touring in warmer weather. That said, I'm not convinced that there's anything special about THIS wax. I'd hypothesize that a block of normal ski wax or regular old paraffin would work as well. I'm still on my first block after three seasons, however, and haven't needed to test the theory. Bottom line: Wax is good & this wax works as advertised

I have always used regular rub on ski wax on my skins as an aid for glide and to keep the snow/water off of my skins. Last spring I gave the Slop Stopper a go to see if it performed any better and, to my surprise, it did. The compound is much softer than regular rub on wax and allows you to get quite a bit more embedded into the skin. This softer compound does a couple of things 1) it gets an adequate job done faster and 2) it does the job better. My only beef with this product is the price. $13 for 2 oz of low technology wax is steep.

Better to have it and not need it, than not have it and want it. Cause when you want it, you want it bad. I live on a island with lots of snow, and lots of salty air and temperate temperatures. So our snow is never far from wet. Slide this goo on your skins and enjoy the glide. Like many below have said, use it up. Goo is good, and if you just put on a light coat, it'll be done in the first few glides.

worked great on spring trip in B.C.

Three of us were having fresh, wet snow sticking/clumping to our skins last week on a backcountry trip near Pemberton, B.C. We stopped to apply this stuff and didn't have any more trouble with the sticking snow.

The instructions just said to rub it in. We rubbed it from tips to tails to prevent damaging the plush.

I had Montana nylon skins and my two friends had Black Diamond Ascension nylon skins.

Didn't seem to impede the uphill grip of the skins.

Slathered this all over my skins before a spring tour on Mt. Washington, NH and glad I did. Snow was very wet with a light drizzle coming down and this kept thing working effectively for the haul up.
It's easy to apply and really light weight so keeping it in your pack is not a problem. Definitely a good buy for a tourer.

Courtney Dean at Backcountry.com on 10/19/2011

You dont generally need this stuff in the winter, but once the slush hits this is a must! It'll keep the skins snow free... and what more could you ask for. My set up is already 100 lbs per leg, why add more snow weight when a $10 piece of wax can save you

Chris jenney at Backcountry.com on 03/27/2012

When you need this stuff, it's every bit worth 12 bucks. It really works and is a spring touring necessity. Save yourself the misery of dragging around another 15 pounds of snow on your skins and get glop stopper wax. I always have a block in my pack.

Kate Atha at Backcountry.com on 10/27/2011

Glop Stopper wax is a necessary addition for any touring pack. Apply it before you start skinning to prevent ice and snow build up. My only suggestion, and this might seem obvious to some, keep it in a plastic bag, otherwise you might ruin your sunglasses!

Paddy Foran at Backcountry.com on 06/14/2011

This stuff keeps the snow from sticking! does its job as advertised. Definitely need to grind it on there, but it keeps you from carrying unwanted snow on your skins and gives you great traction
