So I've done a boat load of research on them and they seem like a good ski but the one question i would like to know is, Are they durable?
I only ask because i am looking for these to last me for about 2 seasons, if these rant good i was planning to go with the domains or chronic
eh idk i find it hard to trust Scott. Yes Tommy Walnuts rides with them but i hardly ever see anyone ride them. Domains and chronics are both SUPER playful and all ive heard about the punishers is that they are super stiff. I have domains and love them theyre just a tad heavy. my friend has chronics and is in love with them. i think your best bet are the chronics my man.
thread bump for input, i lost 2 inches of edge on my 5th day riding them. the inside edge of my leading ski just blew out on a single barrel rail, there is a good 4-5 inches missing now two months later. has anyone else have durability issues with scott?
I'm not sure is the Hellbent have revers camber or not though. -Ninja_on_Skis

I have 2011 jibs and I've pretty much destroyed them going threw trees and riding over rocks but they hold up pretty good in the park if you want them for only 2 years they'll hold up but if you're going for longer I'd consider other skis
Bought the 2012 as I needed a replacement ski fast and they were quite
cheap. Absolutely love them but as with everyone else have had quite a
few issues with durability. Probably done about 20ish days and had quite
a few cracks and a buckled edge... They did survive a fall off my car
going about 20mph though!
Overall, if you're looking for a robust ski I wouldn't recommend the Punisher 12s or earlier. However, as they are just so nice to ride big kickers/ switch etc, I would seriously consider a the newer Punisher TW, which, as people have mentioned, having a thicker edge would make it a very good ski.
