Sort of a Rant, sort of I legit want this problem solved.
I've had to retire my last 5pair or so of skis due to delamination issues, and since I've taken them on rails I in 9/10 cases won't get shit for warranty.
When I've talked with other skiers about this it's easy to see that i'm far from alone with having these issues. I've done everything from duct taping ski tips together to using my car as a clamp while I've waited for liters of epoxy to harden. I recently bought a much needed new pair of skis which lasted me less than a month before they've now delaminated under foot after an icy jump day. Such a disappointment..
What truly grind my gears are that it not like i've bought some off-brand crap, I use the same gear that plenty of pros use and promote. Do they mount new pairs every other week? Am I as a consumer supposed to buy a new pair every other week as well?
How on earth can we and ski manufacturers solve this problem?
Have you also encountered this? Which brands hold up and which don't?
