Line Future Spin 2015 taken out 5 times and broken
The title says it all. I've bought during the X-mas sale a pair of last year unused Future spin (2014-2015). They were at a fair price and the deal was very tempting. I've own myself quite a few pairs of Line Skis, from old 11 Chronic to the new Supernatural, but I'm now very disapointed by the quality of that ski. I litteraly took them 4 times in the park, and considering myself as a medium skilled terrain park rider, throwing out 5 and hitting casually rails, I'm blown out that a pair of skis can go out so quickly with what I've done with them.
I was skiing with my girlfriend and his liltle brother, wasn't riding in the park the entire day. I was carving heavy spring snow when I felt that my tail was way more flexible that it was usually from the last 4 times that I skied on them. I looked at my ski and realised that my ski delaminated just under my foot and that the delimination was making a long gap between my binding and the rest of my ski for about 7 cm long. It's like if the cap-construction delaminated at the right center of my ski, and it affected the core since my tail now feels really different
From that moment I was very pised. Decided to take a few turns again just to be sure, and then just by putting weight on it my side edge cracked where the delamination began. As I am a featherweight for my height (6'2; 150lbs) I'm quite sure that this isn't due to any abuse of the ski.
Need some advices on what to do, cause I'm about to go crazy on how cheap Line have become over the year. I can't accept that a ski that i've bought on January 2nd can go out so quickly (03-27)
Sorry for my bad English, it is not my primary language
I've had the same problem with edge delamination, managed to plug it with epoxy before the edge cracked though. The top sheet keeps coming off at the edge as the well. They've been good but yeah are not durable at all.

That's what I'm about to try, but I don't know how much Line warranty is up to. Never tried any warranty with them, but some people say that it isn't worth the try, even thought it was definitly worth it because it wasn't due to any abuse of the ski.
That's unfortunate! If the edge crack is affecting the tail flex there could be more of an issue than you can see. Just looking at pics is tough to make a call on it but like always, please bring back to an official LINE dealer and see what they can do to help. thanks and good luck - jm
