tomPietrowskiIf they delam just warranty and buy a ski instead that is not a budget tweener ski. Really though you said the press was ok a few years ago but since then you have probably progressed so you should prob be on the sight or poacher which will both hold up much much better for the level you are at.
lucasGskiThe press are my second pair of skis this season. My first pair was some old volkl mantras i picked up which i thought wouldnt be as durable in the park compared to the cap construction on the press but they actually were. The mantras held up wayyyy better and i pretty much only used them in the park.
skiP.E.I.They've been made in China for at least as long as K2 has been making park skis. It could be that you've progressed and are skiing harder now, hence breaking gear more quickly. Sometimes you just get a lemon. I have noticed a general decline in quality from most large ski brands though. Perhaps they are trying to create a public mindset that park skis are disposable.
chickenOops, sorry I meant they have a new factory in china. Either way, I have noticed a significant increase in the quality of their skis this year. The pinnacles actually have an equal amount of metal on both sides of the ski and it lines up with the bump in the topsheet. I have barely seen any poachers come in with big delams vs the shreditor 92 which blew up all the time. The konic 84 TI is a fucking awesome ski too. K2 is making really fun skis again. And next year they are ditching the foam in the pinaccle 88
