      that's awesome. I'm still being stubborn and holding out for a deal. I have my Lib Tech skis that are my absolute favorites. Maybe i'll get a box and just do them to start. I have some TW Pros as well as some Head Kores. The TWP's will likely stay in the quiver as will the Kore's but the Kores I wont use all the time.

        Today was probably the last sunny day with a high near 80.
        So I DPS treated a pair of black & white Blunts that I plan on using with snowboard boots.
        It was an interesting process.
        I let both parts cure in full sun for 2 hours each and finished it off with cork.
        It looks pretty good if I do say so myself.

          Thanks for the reminder, I have a couple more boards that I would apply to, I'll check European dealers for new stock

            I got to try my Blunts with self applied DPS. The glide was fantastic. Noticeably better than the shop applied DPS on my Sherpa's (which is still pretty darn good). I suspect that the shop did not apply as much product as I used. I'm temped to apply a second coat of DPS to my Sherpas this next summer. I know you're not supposed to need to do a second application. But, I would like for my Sherpas to glide like my Blunts. Picking the kits up on fleabay makes it a tolerable risk (money wise).

              Same results for me. I've applied DPS last summer on a brand new pair of LE125 that have never been waxed before, went out like 3 days in late December on them, and everyday the feeling was that of a freshly waxed pair, and the glide was just great.

              I have the exact same thought I'm not sure if my KTPs and RCs got enough first time, and the transparent bases look quite drier compared to the Spruce black ones, I'll first have to ski them again this winter to make sure, but I'm very tempted to apply a second layer come summer

                Thanks to this thread I know that I'm on the third season with DPS on my Sherpas and my bases are still pristine. Amazing! Well worth the investment.
