"The skis are supposed to be like that so you can see the construction of the ski. They are all that way. If you look at the pic on the website you will notice that it has the wood showing."
There has to be some way to get a definitive answer. I had problems with some 05/06 prophet 130's I got, i hope these don't have issues as well.
topsheet problems or blemishes like this can lead to delams. I dont like those so yes it REALLY matters to me.
pollard drew the graphic, not ryan.
So I e-mailed Line, and this is what i got
First of all there is no defect to worry about. It is purely a graphic difference and has nothing to do with the structure of the ski. When I replied to the kid yesterday I didn’t have all the info. I thought I did but I was given more info later. So there were a few hundred skis that were made in early production with the window on them. They were trying to show off the core. For some reason, I don’t know exactly, they decided to not show the core anymore and they started building the skis without the clear part in the top sheet. All the skis with or without this clear part of the top sheet are structurally sound and not prone to delam at all.
Hope this explanation helps,
