p-tex scars?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I just got my skis back from being mounted at Chicks Sporting Goods, and last night when visually inspecting them, I noticed some damage to the ptex underside one of the skis' tail right at the start curve. it doesn't look too bad, but I was wondering... Maybe I just didn't see it when I bought the skis? Anyways, it's easily repairable, but I don't want to hassle with going back there if it's going to be a hassle.

Should I make a fuss or jsut leave it as is and fix it myself?

There's a pic of it at

under the link "Atomic Ski"

BTW, that was a website for when I was teaching web design to junior higgh kids, so don't laugh at the primitive layout of it =)

That doesn't look like a big deal at all but if I was pretty sure it happened at the shop I'd take em back and let them know.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. That size scratch, especially in it's location will have no effect on the gliding performance of the ski. I personally wouldn't even bother fixing it. By trying to fix it, you'll more than likely disturb the base structure more than if you just left it.

The scratches look pretty minor but they shouldn't be there on brand new skis. Let the shop know if they wern't there before. As far as fixing them, I might also just let it go. They appear quite shallow. However, if the skis came out of the wrapper like that I would have them either replaced or discounted since you didn't intend to pay for dinged up bases. My 2 cents.

Thanks for the input. the Skis, although new, were not wrapped in plastic, and it may have been that I just didn't look them over too carefully when purchasing them.

I've never owned my own skis before, so I never really cared about the condition of the ptex. But things are differrent when it's yours. =)

BTW, I got them at the pre-season sale last weekend... and they were already pretty cheap.

Anyways, thanks for all the input. I think I'll jsut let it be, and let the store know next time.
