Hi gang - just came back late last night from SLC. Unpacking skis this AM I noticed what I think is baggage-handling-caused damage to my ski tips (I think it's non-skiing damage since the damage is to both skis, off centerline, where they meet when base-to-base in the bag.
It looks like the skis took an impact just off the center of the tips; the edge is slightly pushed in and there is slight delamination, maybe the size of a quarter. The damage also caused the layers to "mushroom" out (if you were pinching your fingers on the topsheet and base while sliding them along the edge, you'd feel a bulge about the size of a grape). It's well above the start of the running surface - so I'm not worried about the fix affecting how they ski - but want to prevent future damage, water penetration, etc.
My gut would be to get some semi-flexible epoxy, first use a visegrip to pinch the layers / bend the edge back closer
together, then epoxy and clamp.
Does that sound reasonable to anyone? Any tips? BTW, skis are Fischer Watea 78 from a couple seasons ago, bought NOS about a year ago.
