Recently started tuning and caring more about my skis, bla bla, and all that stuff :)
So, after my last trip i was removing some minor surface rust from the trip home, when i saw something odd on my Rossignol Soul 7. Where the metal edge ends and the wood starts, at the tip of the ski, i felt a tiny gap on one of the skis (look at the picture). The picture is just a random one from the internet, can provide picture of my skis, i just don't have time today.
At this small gap i swiftly realised a lot of water had to be absorbed. Through the yellow part of the ski, you can see most of the edge that's sitting inside the ski:
On the ski with the gap, most of the small "teeth" of the edge were rust-colored.
I mean, this must be bad?? I've always been taught to fill core shots etc. as quickly as possible to avoid water getting into the woodcore. Am i paying too much attention to details here, or should i throw Rossignol an email??
Thanks in advantage.
