I bought a new Otter Sport Medium sled this year, and because I frequently have to drag it across pavement or paths before getting out on the ice I noticed I was getting lots of large gouges etc. after only just one month.
On previous sleds I’ve installed metal runners (a serious pita) and I see there are also some molded plastic options for the Otter at ~$50 but I’d have to drill 28 holes by my count and they would add an additional 7lbs to my setup.
I had a roll of this aluminum roofing tape on-hand from an ongoing squirrel battle, and there is some serious voodoo in this stuff.
I’m guessing we have some cold-weather roofers on here who can attest, but I can say from my limited experience that this stuff will stick to a 100% vertical stucco wall through multiple MN winters, and keep a family of pesky squirrels from chewing into my eaves.
Next step is to see if it will protect my Otter and help make the bottom a little more slick like me. I assume this would self-destruct behind an atv/sled over long miles but I hope it will protect my walkin’ sled against the pavement, and there is enough on a $15 roll to last for years of replacements. We will see…
