Anyway, after inspection, they seem fine except for some minor scratches that appear on the base of the skis. I can only assume that these were there when they shipped them or they were created during shipping.
Do I have reason to be paranoid besides the obvious asthetic reasons? Any performance issues? Can I assume that once I get the ski properly tuned in a ski shop(waxed, etc...) the scratches will become a non-issue, both asthetically and performance wise? Thanks for induldging my paranoia!:
