well i have gone as hard as i can with the limited amount of features in the park and terrain on the mountain and I can say, the edges hold up great! over 60 disaster 2s onto a rail along with mulitple switch-ups and also some cliff drops and semi-tree skiing. no edge cracks and edges arent beat up that badly either. just make sure to de-tune them a little to take off unnecessary stress on the edges. As far a base goes. I am surprised with the great durablility of them since I am going off-piste in December in the east. If this doesnt mean anything to you, then basically i am skiing on rocks, twigs, fallen trees, death cookies and grass. The disasters on rails have done more damage to the bases than all of the other stuff and even then the damage is minor. great skis and super fun. I might have just been lucky to get a good pair but there is a warranty for those of us who arent as lucky to get a good pair, because, at 300 (sale right now) they are worth it for sure.
i skied them for 2 years. actually really night and for the 250 bucks i got em for when they were that cheap i didnt care about beating them up. the top sheets chipped up really bad at first but after you chip the initial sides down they hold up nice. no delam. my skis only started to fall apart mid season last year when i was using them for urban and slipped off the rail and yanked the edge out on the concrete steps. then the edges kept breaking. for the most part they are a great bang for the buck. they are planks though. not flexy at ALL
