BlackSam$125 and you get a brand new pair of skis. no repair service
Why should a company market and advertise a ski with the ability to do something if they are not going to stand behind that action being done.
It says "repair or replace"
And either way, you're still paying extra for this "warranty" so it's not comparable to a free warranty that comes with purchase.
Those companies you are attacking market the skis as being able to hit rails, but not indefinitely, without any damage.
It's a fact that if you hit rails enough you will damage ANY pair of skis. Revision will give you new skis (hint: I'd bet a large amount of money that Revision's margins on a pair of skis are much higher than most of the other companies mentioned in this thread) HG will charge you $125 and give you new skis, ON3P will repair your skis if you ship them to them, other companies will do their thing, etc.
This is not a "standing behind the product" issue. This is a "can we afford to offer a rail warranty so we can sell a bunch of skis to kids on NS who think they deserve it" issue.
Skiing rails is fundamentally harder on a pair of skis than not hitting rails. How a company deals with that varies between brands based on their business and marketing strategy.
I see no reason to demand that warranty as a right. Talk with your money, go buy HG or Revision if that warranty is the most important thing to you, but I have a hard time faulting any company for not offering it.
