Is anyone making bad skis anymore?
Companies have had their problems. Liberties used to snap in half, Dynastars blew out their edges, and some of the first few Lines were just total shit. That being said, I feel like it's getting to the point where skis are pretty well figured out across the board. Sure some are better than others, but are any bad anymore?
Not really. I mean opinions vary but no one really makes "bad skis" anymore. Like none just fall apart at random. Some might argue suspects though, but i hear they ski really well.
I rented the suspects and i loved them
BUt to the point no ski really just fall apart
maybe after some good abuse to them.
line skis seam to break a lot my litle bro broke a pair of invaders and he is a small kid, and a friend snaped a pair of invaders warntied them then snaped the second pair
salomon had a real shitty year this year. my friend broke his suspects, my other friend broke his threats, and my other friend has dumonts that are falling apart
ninthward has durability issues, broke 2 pair last year...
that really blows. i wish they would keep the design on the current suspect and transfer it to next year since they swear they got the buggs fixed
i think on the whole most companies are making good skis but there are always lemons.
yeah last years wernt so hot. this years are awesome tho. really good quality. they stepped it up big time for sure. i havnt herd of anyone breaking this years yet. new sidewalls edges and diff topsheet.
most don't fall apart, but there are a lot that just ski like shit.
i havent had any issues with my anthems; they seem to be holding up wayyy better than my volkls or heads. I wouldnt buy salomon skis, at least not this year, after all the horror stories ive heard and seen
i ve seen a lot of threads about how salomons have sucked this year
