Restoring camber when it has been lost

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Has anyone been successful in restoring camber to skis that have lost it?  I picked up a pair of used Fischer SG skis on the cheap and they pretty much touch over the whole length when you put them base-to-base.  (They're still a blast to ski on, since I've never had new ones so I wouldn't know the difference :-)  As opposed to my Atomic SX-10's which have at least a one-inch gap under the bindings when put base-to-base.

It couldn't hurt to tie them together over the summer with a hockey puck stuck in the middle.

I doubt a pair of SG skis are ever skied enough to ski the camber out of them. I'd look at a comparable pair of someone else's. maybe SG skis don't have a lot of camber. just saying. My Stockli XL's have almost no camber, the Legend Pro's not much.  Race Slalom's tons of camber.

 

you can't restore camber once it's gone from the ski as it is due to internal structure failure. If it were a solid wood construction, we could fix it right up with a hockey puck and some elastics, stand them in the corner of the shower room for a week or two, eh GilD?
