Can damage like this be fixed?

post #1 of 9

Thinking of buying a pair of skis from Craigslist , but it has a damage like this, is it something that's fixable?

Define "fix"...  If you're getting them for $10, you might find a shop that can make them skiable again.  Personally, my shop wouldn't have tried.  We weren't the best shop in the world but there comes a point where you have to be clear what the client can expect from the repair..

Are the bindings included because that should be what you are pricing.  That ski could be made skiable with the wrecked edge on the outside only but I wouldn't pay more than the bindings are worth for them..

I recently sold a pair of Soul 7s in very good condition with Pivot 14s for $375.  I originally thought I'd get closer to $450 for them, but I got absolutely no interest at that price.  No way I'd pay $350 for those.

That's a little rich for used bindings and the skis are essentially ruined. Although I agree with others they could be made skiable, there's got to be better deals out there.

I'm not sure I'd say that's even fixable - even if you have a buddy in a shop who is going to comp you. The edge is fixable, but the whole ski looks at a minimum compressed, and possibly sheared.

Whatever he hit, he didn't just tear out the edge on a rail. He might have hockey stopped his way into the lift pole, or even slammed a door on them (just looking how linear the damage was) ! Like the other guys said, bindings would be the only thing I'd consider salvageable.

Slammed the trunk lid down on them?

I think is something like closing a trunk lid on it as well, good to know that is not worth it. thx all
