I had Line Skogans too and they started to delmainate after 9 days on snow- no rails. So after they started delmainating and they wouldnt give me warrenty, I started to hit rails. Right now, I am sliding on wood; no edges, no pitex.
My Armadas were sick though, they held up REALLY good last year.
What is the colour of a mirror?
nah dude, that's not a good analogy. Twin tips should be designed with hitting rails in mind. All the core companys and k2 seem to be on top of the situation. It's the frenchies like dynastar and salomon who are lagging behind.
you can build a thousand bridges, but you suck one dick and your known as a cocksucker.. not a bridge builder.
yea compnies may be puttin in thicker edges, but i guarantee I can still probably wreck any ski on rails after a season. Hitting rails is one of the most destructive things you can do to skis.
if you are smooth on rails and not coming down hard on them then your edges should hold up for a few months, but if ur not smooth or u suck or u land hard on rails then the edge is going to be gone in a day or so
^ what he said. its more the rider not the ski. although more companies are building skis with thicker edges and that can help, it helps heeeeaps if you dont pop up high onto rails and slam down on them. be smooth and most skis will hold up for a while
ya its all about the smoothness

v pros = not solid. My friend's v pros (I skied with him every day last season so I'm not passing down a story I heard) were very very broken after one seasons and even after half a season. A piece of edge and a bit of his base tore out from rails I guess, things just ketp goign wrong. And my other friend lanks on here, his expressions also ddn't hold up on rails at all, I believe it was 5th day of him riding them when he hit a rail and a big section of the edege completely ripped off.
My k2 enemies (the old ones) were really good to me as far as durability, but I'm also light and small, so I guess I dont put that much pressure on them. SO far my 4frnts are doign solid.
Rest in peace Shane.
Rest in peace CRJ.
