First post here. I got back into skiing this year after a 25+ year layoff ( marriage, kids, etc.) But I've really been enjoying myself this season. I had forgotten how much fun skiing was.
I ordered a pair of Blizzard Bushwackers from a local ski shop. When I called to see if they were ready to be picked up, the owner of the shop told me that he accidentally drilled the binding mounting holes in the wrong place on one of the skis. He plugged the holes and mounted the bindings correctly, but he said two of the plugged holes were visible. He was very apologetic and gave me a couple of options: 1. Try to find a new set for me 2. Knock $50 off of the price of the skis.
Since the season is coming to an end here in the Northeast, a new pair might be hard to come by. He had a fairly difficult time finding the first pair he got for me. Since I haven't purchased skis in over 30 years, is it a big deal to have plugged holes in the skis? What would you do, take the discounted price or make him find a new pair?
