I wouldn't go sportchek. From what I've seen and heard, the products at sportchek are usually the lower end of the product. So stuff that gapers can handle, but people that know their stuff, it wouldn't last for them.
Look around local stores, its the best thing, try negotiating, finding last seasons skis, anything really that spells deals.
sportchek is actually good, but don't trust a thing they say about skiing they don't know shit. They sell alot more then just silencers they sell almost all of the k2 factory series. ( hellbents,domains ect.)
