Does anyone here has experiences with BD Ascension and / or BD Glidelite Skins. Are the Ascension still that bulky as they used to be years ago? What would you buy?

They pack very light, glide really well after about 10 tours (better than nylon out the gate), and grip just fine on almost all tracks but the steepest. The glue is also awesome. I reglued mine after about 150 days on them.d I personally think Mohair mix is the way to go. Lighter, pack better, and glide way better.
