Lmclellan4My friend broke three pairs in one season if that answers your question
Probably an unfortunate experience and could depend how big he is and how he uses them. Honestly Jskis has probably top 3 or so durability in the game, and probably the best customer service. The graphics are sick and I've heard nothing but great things. There are some unlucky experiences. A friend of mine broke 2 pairs of ON3Ps in a season and ON3P might have the best durability out there. If you take care of your skis these should last you a while. Also it depends on much you ski these, obviously rails damage any ski after a while, and the more you use a ski, the quicker it gets banged up.
