most custom made skis people know about are worth buying if they have a good repuation.
Igneous is almost unbreakable, kingswood is just badass with wood cores and the amount of work they put in, capital has a nice line for cheaper than normal custom skis, and praxis has such sick art and have great skis too.
They're an investment but I'm sure they're worth it. I plan to pick up a pair of kingswoods or iggys by the time I turn 18.
I've never had such great contact with a ski company. These guys will help you out no matter what AND their skis are top notch. best you can get for pow pow!
