Is there no such thing as a pure jib ski that lasts over half a season?
I bought my Afterbangs in November, with the intention of finally having a ski that would not get destroyed by hitting rails all day. I have not hit any urban with these, only park rails, powder, and general east coast ice.
After one month, the tips delaminated, making the edge come off. Skirack called in Line to warranty, and Line responded that the skis had been abused and could not be replaced.
It is now nearing three months, and this is the shape of the skis:
I'm not overly disappointed in Line, because I understand lots of skis get destroyed easily.
However, I won't buy the "bombproof" Afterbangs again.
A couple questions:
Is this normal for warranties to be this sketchy?
What skis actually will hold up after a couple months on park rails, in case I am forced to buy another pair?
I wouldn't care at all about the shape they are in, except that at this point it is affecting my skiing. My carving onto rails is thrown off and nollies are pretty scary.
