I bought armada arv's 2010 model a couple months ago, and have used them about 4-5 days so far. They were brand new when I received them and through these days of skiing, I have noticed more and more chips in the top sheet. Now a ton of the top sheet along the edge of the skis is either chipped off completely or scraped.
I did not abuse my skis and bang them around, though I did have a nasty fall resulting in a broken hip from a 20+ foot drop. (not into powder, but onto a groomed surface)
The question I'm wondering is if this is a defect, or if its just normal to have it seem this abused this early on, considering my fall.
