Gels difficult to open

Brought some gels from Home Bargains, which work fine, but very difficult to tear the top off. Thought it was my wet / sweaty hands but now I'm having trouble with High5 gels, too; it's as if they have gone from single ply to two ply, as there is a clear layer inside that I'm finding tough to tear.

So what have others found?

Ps. Can't use teeth - too many crowns.


  • Pre cut a tiny bit (obviously not so that the goo escapes) before your race, just so that they tear easily.

    I use SiS and they aren't bad to get into. I must admit I do use my teeth though. (I have crowns too, but none in the front).
