Sorry if i read it wrong, but it came off to me you were saying that you broke your threats, and salomon said they would warranty them for you? and now you are wondering which of their skis is best for you to get? so are you under the impression that you will have the choise? if so, you do not. very rarely will you get a better ski, this only happens when they have none of the ski you had in stock, and give you something else. but this is rare because like you experienced, they told you to wait for this season because they did not have any other threats in stock, and will just give you this years.
but i may have read it wrong..?
