nope, foam cores blow. and yeah, ski REPs will do anything to convince you thier skis are the best. they are almost as bad as politicians.
but what you have to remember, is that wood is very resiliant. even in this modern age, its hard to find anything that holds up as well for a reasonable price. carbon fiber is pretty much the only thing that i know of. composites, like fiberglass break down much faster than wood, especially when its the only structural element in the ski. with the 1080, thats the case. the monococ design puts all of the stress into the fiberglass, which breaks it down super fast. plus, foam will bend. i had an old set of foam siks, and i bent the whole front of the ski upwards. and if it takes a good focused impact, it cracks right in half. foam core skis are fine of mom skis, but they have no place in the world of jib and bc skis, because it doesnt hold up to the abuse of these kinds of riding. plus, salomon sucks.
in science class i sat down to fast and you know how you can sit on your balls. well i did and i sat down really fast and crushed them and right when i sat down i started puking and fell out of my chair. they teacher laughed. i felt like i could pass out i wanted to die.-*NWFT*nUkkA
