Core shot on my new skis

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I was moving to my skis to another room today and found one of my new skis has a 60mm long lines on the base

Is it something I need I P-tex or just need a good brush and wax

Certainly doesn't look like a core shot from where I sit.  A wax, scrape and brush should be enough for now, paying particular attention at the scrape stage if there is any Ptex lifted off the base.  

 

I suspect it will disappear altogether with the next base grind, although I wouldn't arrange a grind off the back of that scratch (depending on the condition of your bases more generally).

 

Best of luck.

Just for reference..  This is what a core shot looks like..  all the way through the p-tex to the core is a core shot.

I have trouble calling the OP's "core shot" anything more than a "scratch".  I think all of my skis have worse damage than that on them...

Fresh sparkling new skis are a beauty to behold.

 

However a day on the hill anywhere off the main tracks with machine made snow early season especially will make that scratch "disappear".

 

Bases are made to be mangled, try to avoid the big rocks obviously, but don't sweat the small stuff.  P-tex repair is easy if not pretty.  Unless you are a racer who is anal about their bases and edges, you will never feel the difference, and a base grind resurface for that scratch will remove material that otherwise will resist deep gouges better and your boards will last longer.
