Well, I was just gathering up my gear to head out, and lo and behold what do I see? Busted edges. Now I have never had this happen to me. My guess is that it happened on a sketchy rail, but I'm not sure.
Is this kind of damage fixable? I really love these skis (05 Chronics), so I'd hate to have to toss them.
If it is fixable, then what is the next step? Ski shop or send them back to Line?
shit happens. No warranty will cover it. And if you hit rails you can't expect to have your skis stay in good shape. and that kid wasn't being ignorant... i agree with him. I have no edges and I still ski the whole mountain. it's harder, but you can do it.
I've seen edges busted like that be cut, re-applied and epoxied, they held up for another season. I dunno if that is an option for you tho, thats a pretty big blowout. Honestly, id cut it, grind it so nothing stick out, and throw some P-Tex or wood glue in the hole to keep water out. Chances are the rest of your edges will hold up if you dont slay rails daily for 10 hours, and they wont be very noticeable unless your skiing realll hardpack or ice. Hope that helps

yo i feel ya, i have some 05 chronics that are slowly becoming lesss and less usable and i love them!!! i would say save up for the 09's they are looking too sick, actually one of my favorite ski designs eve.
Um, if you don't have a park, or even if you do, it's not convenient to ski the whole mountain without edges. Simply because carving on ice going fast in crud, holding an EDGE in a turn, carving in general, etc. is difficult without EDGES.
You should check to see if that shit is able to be warrantied.
im going to refer back to, "don't fucking ski on ice" and "quit fucking racers" and "skidding a turn every once in a while won't burn down the rainforest" and "they are his park skis and he skis park on them and edges int he park are dumb."
my recomendation is to keep them and just use them solely for park and then buy a new pair of skis and use those as your all mountain ski. for park you dont really need edges... its actually better for rails not to have great edges so use the 05 chronics for your park.
you are an idiot. first, chronics are all mountain skis. second, maybe he lives in the east and can't avoid ice all the time. i ski park, but i'm not ignorant enought to think that that's all skiing has to offer. edges aren't dumb, you are.
WHAT ARE YOU FUCKING HITLER ON SKIS! Man if you went to my fucking mountain I would make it a point to light you face on fire and put it out with a screwdriver. I'm fucking korean, and garunteed bigger than you and would love to stomp your fucking face in with my tecnicas. Swear to god you don't think I won't come to my place and see what happens. In the best interests of your dental and health plans I would stay way clear of east coast.
hahahaha, so i just saw a picture of tool-steezy and the kid is a midget.... sorry bout what i said before....... i have a moral issue about beatin the shit out of ppl below 5'5" sorry, real sorry bout your luck in life. Like you barely are taller than the average height of a chinaman. hell Asian allen might just be taller than you. But to be FOR REAL..... I will throw you off of a lift if I were to ever see you. Racism/predjudice is not tollerated, and if NS doesn't like what i have to say, fuck them too
