In the beginning of February I was riding my my skis (176 Armada Ar7s) and hit a branch/rock?, not sure which, while I was riding on my mountain. The base of my one ski got two decent sized nicks, one that wasn't too deep in the middle of my underfoot, and one that was to the core near the edge on the underfoot. I went to my local ski shop and said that the one nick wouldn't be a problem to fix with a stone finish, but the one to the core since it was right on the edge might not be completely fixed with a stone finish, so they recommended a base repair to make sure the repair is permanent, so I agreed.
Well this is where my problems started. They cut out the part of base that was nicked and replaced it with a half circle piece of base and I guess just glued it in or what not. It seemed like it was a good fix, but I wasn't sure it would hold. Well, today i was going to wax my skis and what do you know, the piece literally fell out and now I have a half circe piece of base missing on my underfoot. I paid $70 for the repair, which seemed like a lot for what they did, and it ended up not fixing the problem like they said. I've only been out skiing around 10 days since they "fixed" it, and am not sure what to do or think about this.
I plan on calling them tomorrow about it but I'm not sure what to expect. Is this a common thing to happen to a base repair? or are there better ways to do it? I just want my skis fixed before the season ends but I dont have another $70 to dish for them to fix something they already fixed.
Also, they are the 2012 Ar7s so would there possibly be a warranty through Armada?
+k for any help
