I cant tell you something about the 09/10 but i had the 07/08 (warrenty them because front binding popped out), and now im riding the 08/09 i had them for about 25-30 skidays this season. they have like the same problem with the topsheet at the edges (chipping) like the older model. but you can break the edges and even when you dont its not a big deal. over all the ski is still in a good shape. overall i would gave it a 9/10 because it's a bit to stiff for me. i broke the edge (rails and boxes) 3 times but thats also not a big deal.
i hope i could help you a bit, and sry for my bad english! :D
that "pullout" of my binding was because i did a tip stand and i heard a sound "chrrzzk" and i knew immeadiatly that it was something wrong, then i did it again and the back piece of the binding (sorry, it wasnt the front) popped out. but i think that was a mistake in the montage, from that guy, not a ski defect. and the binding is pretty shit too (marker free-serie). yeah i think in aspect of the stiffness it would truely be a better ski for you if you like it hard! :P
broken edges are just normal for me i think, but de sidwall is still in good shape.
