need some skis that will last me as long as possible so in other words i am looking for the most durable ski out there. I have hear good things about these two skis but i am just looking for comments and if you know of any other durable skis.
PEs are really durable, I've skied mine for 2 long seasons on rocks, rails, ice and park and there are some serious scratches on teh base and the top sheet is chipped to shit b/c its the 05/06 ones, but basically they are quite structurally sound. i think they would be more durable than Salomons because I've seen some older Salomons completely trashed and the 06 Thrusters with teh top sheet ripped off of one whole end. Volkl Karmas are supposed to be really durable. I demo'd them and they seemed really solid, plus they are a sick all mountain ski. This year I have heard of many volkls falling apart though, so i would look for last years. i haven't heard many bad things about Armada for durability, except the earlier Ar5s lost tehir edges pretty quick.
