I have to purchase 2 new sets of race skis this year to conform with fis regulations. To buy them new would cost me $540 each without bindings. The other option I have is to buy them from the Fischer rep. who has demo skis that have been used at Mt. Hood all summer. These skis are $420 with bindings. Obviously for two sets of the skis the used ones would be significantly cheaper but I don't know if I would be able to get two years of racing out of them like I could on new skis. I have never worn out skis so much that their has been a difference in performance. I wanted to know what people thought of how the performance of race skis changes with heavy use and whether the fact that the demo skis have already been skied on for 70+ days on hard snow would make them not worth it. Thank You.
