Alright, so for a design project I'm doing for school, I need a quick look at how skis most often break. So, if you would be so kind as to give me the number of skis you have personally had 'break' in the following ways, I would love you.
Edges ripping out
Losing all responsiveness (IE no more camber, pop, skis become noodles)
1 Pair of k2 delam. 1 Pair of salomon 1080 cracked edges then broke at the heel piece. 1 Pair of volkl V-Pro cracked edges and ripped out bindings. 1 Pair of nordica cracked sidewalls. 1 Pair of volkl gotamas cracked sidewalls. 2 Pair of volkl G-41 delam.

if your looking for all around types of breaking, i know that when i used to race lots of kids broke their skis because of the slalom gates hitting them and snapping the ski vertically at the tip. i also know that the top sheet cracks on some if you get enough pressure on the ski during a turn (usually near the tip as well).
