So we're all on the same page.
Durham - Detune your edges - fix cracks as they happen - and your skis will last a long time. Let water get in (as you are starting to) and your skis will die fast.
Do note - we do detune new (2018 and on) Magnus that go out (which slows, but won't prevent cracks), but those are the only models that are factory detuned. The edges on your Charlie Murphys still super sharp, so I would fix that soon. That said, all park skis will eventually get edge cracks. If you maintain your skis, rail damage is manageable. If you don't, expect to cycle thru a lot of park skis. Most of our factory guys (who know how to maintain skis) get 2-3 years on a pair easily. Just takes a bit of effort to maintain your skis.
In the future, from a companies perspective, an email or phone call asking for help goes a long way before both an Instagram post & NS call out.
Let us know if you need any help directly from ON3P. Email is best. Thanks!
BWalmerYeah, I've cracked mine, but it's really not a big deal at all - simply file to take out burs and smooth transitions, epoxy if there's any separation from the base and you'll be good to go. I usually crack an edge after about 30 days of rails or so - but then ski another 100+ days without them ever coming out. I have a pair of FRs from like 4 years ago that have 3 edge cracks, but not a single one of them are pulling out. You'll be good.
voy10Holy shit thatís insane. How much do you have to file it down?
